Well, I got good news and bad news, girls. The good news is your dates are here.

What’s the bad news?

They’re dead.

This classic exchange between the legendary Tom Atkins and a sorority girl is only one of the highlights of Fred Dekker’s Night of the Creeps. Easily one of my all-time favorite movies, Night of the Creeps is a 50s B science fiction movie meets an 80s teen comedy with a heaping helping of zombies thrown in. And it’s never been legally available on DVD.

Until this October. And it’s going to be a special edition! Red Shirt Pictures’ Michael Felsher was on Dead Pit radio today and said that he had just spoken to Sony and the disc was official. He said: ‘It’s going to be the director’s cut with the original ending. We’re going to go balls to the wall with the special features on it.’

I couldn’t be more excited. Felsher said that Dekker is already working on the features; hopefully they’ll be able to get the director and Atkins together in a booth to record a commentary.

As soon as this is available for pre-order we’ll let you know.
