This is a no brainer I gotta go with N.o.t.C !
That's an easy one - Night of the Creeps! Tom Atkins is one of the most underrated character actors ever. This was easily one of his best roles. It's a crime this still has not been released on legitimate dvd. It's Miller time!
Night of the Comet was one of those movies I used to introduce all my friends to back in the late 80s. Night of the Creeps was one of those movies one of my friends introduced me to back in the late 80s. I love them both, but there's more nostalgia with Comet so I have to go with that.
Creeps. Comet was good but dragged a bit. Creeps was great cheesy fun from beginning to end.
Oh, also: Bud the Chud > Night of the Creeps.
Creeps is overrated.
Blasphemy! Night of the Creeps is a gem! It's got a huge fanbase and rightfully so! Love every minute of that flick.
In my opinion, Creeps is a great 80's horror film that has aged well. Comet is a great 80's horror film that hasn't aged well. Regardless, I own both blu-ray's and will continue watching them throughout the rest of my life.
Tom Atkins and the special effects are the only things that work about it. Both Night of the Comet and Bud the Chud have much more to offer.
bud the chud has nothing to offer worst goddamn film i sat through in years. I crushed the vestron vhs tape I had. It was not funny it tried perfect example of a horror comedy fail teen wolf had more to offer then chud 2
Teen Wolf does suck incredibly hard. I'll give you that.
But Bud the Chud is still a good zombie movie. And better than Night of the Creeps, which is okay at best and still overrated.
You're forgetting Jill Whitlow.
Nah. I remember the motel room scene from Halloween III- I'm all set with Tom Atkins.
Creeps. Not even close. Creeps is one of my favorite 80s films.
Correct. The answer is definitely Comet. You win a brand new car! Thanks for playing.
I love Tom Atkins and CREEPS is great fun but COMET I think has the better script.
Also- Creeps doesn't have enough to beat Comet's best scenes. That extended scene of Catherine Mary Stewart driving through Red L.A. on the motorcycle alone is glorious (brilliant isolation, visually stunning, blazing color, scorching sun) on a level that another film has to really step up to ascend to. And the horror scenes are much better at surprise and shock, I think. There's an early scene in Creeps where a corpse bursts open and leaks slugs into - I believe - the female main character's bedroom and I think she's standing at the window. The scene cuts away, abruptly, and the next day- she's alive. Totally fine. Walking down the college campus with Rusty from European Vacation like nothing happened the night before.
What the hell was that?
And, why are all the girls at the dorm such dead-eyed, weirdly lifeless creatures in the scene where Tom Atkins says "the good news is, your dates are here..." They should be... doing something! Thinking. Talking. Some reaction shots would be nice.
And, why are all the guys on the girls' dates' bus all tubby and hairy and look 30-35 years old? I want an answer to that... I would guess it's the special effects crew on the bus instead of guys who look like real 80's college students at the kind of place you'd expect a bus full of jocks to look. Most of these guys are supposed to be sports team guys. They look like guys at your Dad's poker game. (And even Dan Connor's poker buddies mostly shaved on Roseanne.) They don't fit the profile of Kens to the dorm's Barbies. You know? I have to take points off for that.
And... (I have more.)
Creeps has that bizarre alien intro, followed by a B&W segment--and only after both does the film get going. Audacious!
Bizarre but not really good intro.
