    Both films have great characters and unique horror scenarios. But the better film for me is easily Creeps. Fun performances and laughs throughout. It gets better every time I watch it.

    Exactly. The key word you mentioned is "FUN". Comet is an excellent film, it's no way taking anything away from that movie...... Creeps is just fun from the goofy alien opening sequence to the sorority house explosion. 80s cheese at it's finest. Just typing about Creeps makes me want to watch it this week. I believe I will.

    I think Night of the Comet is fun about 3/4 of the way through the movie. Then I just feel so uninterested by where the film goes after that.

    For me it's Night of the Creeps. Easy.

    Still own both of them on blu-ray, they both have good qualities about them.

    I do gotta say, with all the anticipation of the dvd release of Creeps years back (I believe I even signed a petition to get this badboy on disc). The DVD cover is awful. It's completely irrelevant I know but you would assume after years of fans bitchin trying to get this flick released, they'd come up with a better cover. Boring. I don't think the blu ray was any better either.

    The blu-ray cover was possibly even worse...

    I'd almost double dip to get the Australian release, just because of its cover:

    I honestly can't remember anything about Comet- so Creeps is obviously getting my vote. That being said, it's probably time to revisit Comet.
