Night of the Creeps
Time Out saysEgged on by frat house jock Brad, nerds Chris and JC thaw out the freeze-dried body of a guy who got 'slugged' back in 1959. Meanwhile, the axe-man who offed his girlfriend on the same night comes up through the floorboards and starts cutting people down to size. The careworn cop on the case thinks he's Hammett, the kids just ham it. Neither Dekker's sloppy direction nor the cheapo make-up and effects do justice to the hand-me-down but sporadically lively script. Not the most sophisticated or scary horror film of the year, perhaps, but enjoyable enough in a ramshackle sort of way.
