Retro Picture Show presents CRITTERS and NIGHT OF THE CREEPS - both screening on 35mm at Cinema Arts Centre in Huntington, NY on Friday, September 8, 2017.
[Description from back of VHS] “Both thumbs up!” said Ebert and Siskel about CRITTERS, a horrific story of carnivorous aliens who come to Earth in a feeding frenzy for human flesh. It’s no picnic for the Brown family when a lethal litter of Krites arrives unannounced at their Kansas farm. Trapped in a deadly nightmare, the terrified Browns fight for their lives against the attacking blood thirsty monsters. But, it’s a losing battle until two intergalactic bounty hunters arrive determined to blow the hellish creatures off the planet! It’s an alien adventure, full of action and crawling with CRITTERS! (US, 1986, 86 mins, Dir. Stephen Herek, 35mm)
NIGHT OF THE CREEPS (1986)
[Description from back of VHS] Humor mixes with horror in this chiller about a college campus being ravaged by gruesome creatures that turn their victims into zombies.
The night of the formal is finally here for Chris, Cindy, and J.C. It’s going to be the best night of their lives. But, tonight is also the NIGHT OF THE CREEPS
From a world unknown comes a nightmare unimagined. First, they are under you, around you, inside of you, then, you’re dead. Zombies, exploding heads, creepy crawlies, they are a new breed of terror; a different kind of horror. The Creeps are taking over.
You never had a night like this! (US, 1986, 90 mins, Dir. Fred Dekker, 35mm)
