SPHE Press Release: Night of the Creeps Director's Cut

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


For the First Time on DVD
The Campy 1980’s Horror Classic

NIGHT OF THE CREEPS
DIRECTOR’S CUT

Get Your Creep On…
Debuts on DVD October 20th with the Shocking Original Ending!



Culver City, CA (6/15/09) – The screams of horror movie fans have finally been heard as Sony Pictures Home Entertainment unleashes the eagerly awaited 80’s horror comedy NIGHT OF THE CREEPS on DVD for the first time ever this October 20, 2009, featuring the Director’s Cut of this camp classic. Fans can now relive this chillingly entertaining cult classic about a small college town ravaged by killer slugs from outer space as Writer/Director Fred Dekker intended, with the original ending and loaded with killer bonus features including over sixty minutes of all-new Behind-the-Scenes featurettes. Included are “Birth of the Creeps,” in which Dekker discusses the inspiration behind his filmmaking debut; “Cast of the Creeps,” in which actors Jason Lively, Tom Atkins, Steve Marshall and Jill Whitlow reminisce about the making the cult classic; “Creating the Creeps,” in which Make-Up FX Creators David B. Miller and Robert Kurtzman reveal how they brought the slithering slug-like "creeps" to life; “Escape of the Creeps,” exploring the film’s difficult journey to the big screen; “Tom Atkins: Man of Action,” focusing on the career of beloved genre star Tom Atkins and, finally, “Legend of the Creeps” in which cast and crew discuss the film’s enduring cult legacy. Additional bonus features include both of the film’s endings; audio commentaries with Dekker and cast; deleted scenes; original theatrical trailer; a trivia track and footage from the June 2009 cast reunion screening at The Original Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. This Director’s Cut DVD of NIGHT OF THE CREEPS will be available for the suggested price of $19.94.


To appease the CREEPS fans, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment and Amazon.com are sponsoring a unique contest in which fans can vote on the film’s final DVD box art. Log on to Amazon.com for more details beginning June 29, 2009.

In this campy chiller, a college couple in 1959, see an object plummet to Earth like a meteor. The boy accidentally swallows a space-slug that shoots out.

Seems they are going thru a lot of trouble but no Blu Ray release. Seems like a waste to me.
Stop the Replacing of original Studio Opening / Closing logos! These are becoming endangered and should be kept intact. They are part of film history.

This sucks big time. For years I waited for this movie to come out and now that we've moved on to Blu-ray, they only release it on DVD. This would be like releasing a movie only on VHS in the days of DVD. I remember reading an interview with the director last year and he said they were remastering the film for release on DVD and Blu-ray so maybe there might still be a glimmer of hope. Let's cross our fingers!!

What makes this even more B.S. is that it's a Sony title. Hey Sony, how about supporting your format!

Agreed that it is a shame that this won't be release on blu ray. However I am very excited nonetheless this is being finally release on DVD. Looks like many cult favorites are being release exclusive to DVD only.

Too bad that SONY seems to be making great strides in the release of the DVD version but sad that they can't release it on Blu ray at the same time. They won't get a double dip from me. I won't buy the standard DVD version. I have waited a long time for the DVD I can wait longer for the BD release.

Only problem is, Sony may never release it on blu ray.

I am guessing it must be the director or someone with the films making that does not want a blu-ray made?? for what ever reason.

I do not think it is Sony, they would put everything they had on blu-ray if they could, I think.

It has to be something with "Distribution Rights".

Thank you for making that point. While I too agree that it would be great to have this film on Blu-Ray, I am grateful to be getting it in any form at all -- and a pretty packed special edition, as well. (Unlike the disappointing movie-only version of Night of the Comet, for example.)

Keep in mind that this movie has been out-of-print on even VHS since the Eighties!

They're probably just waiting for a larger user base before releasing a relatively obscure film.

Because Troma is a small studio, where all of their titles have limited appeal. A huge studio like Sony can release NOTC because they have many other titles that appeal to the masses.

Man, I've been looking forward to this for a long time, but if it's being released on DVD only, I'll satisfy myself with getting it from my library or Netflix. I won't purchase it for myself until it's on Blu-Ray.

Let me repeat that for any Sony reps that might be trolling...

"I won't actually purchase a copy of Night of the Creeps until it's released on Blu-Ray..."
