Thrill Me!: The Making of 'Night of the Creeps' (2009)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Highly entertaining five-part documentary on the making of the 1986 cult movie NIGHT OF THE CREEPS. The 58-minute documentary features interviews with writer/director Fred Dekker, producer Charles Gordon, Tom Atkins, Jason Lively, Jill Whitlow, Steve Marshall, Michael Knue and many others. The first part takes a look at the pre-filming where the director talks about how he came up with the story. Part two talks about how the cast and crew got involved. Part three deals with the special effects used in the film and how they were created. Part four deals with the troubled post-production, the disastrous preview screening and the alternate scenes that were shot. The fifth part deals with the cult status that the film has gained since the original mediocre box office returns.

THRILL ME!: THE MAKING OF NIGHT OF THE CREEPS is going to be a must-see for fans of the movie. I was one who discovered this one VHS back in the late 80s and there's no question that it really stands apart from the majority of the horror films released around this period. Dekker goes into great detail about how he came up with the story and I enjoyed his honesty on the disastrous preview and how the box office results were disappointing for everyone. The cast and crew also tell some great stories as they discuss what it was like at the time of making the picture and how they found out that there was a good cult following. Overall there's really nothing that you'd want to know about the film that isn't discussed here.
