Night of the Creeps (1986, dir. Fred Dekker)

A student prank gone wrong triggers the release of dormant alien parasites. Generally sprightly horror-comedy, mashing up 50s monster invasion SF, zombie flicks and sorority slashers. Joky but not spoofy, Creeps benefits from a dark touch when needed, not least with Tom Atkins’ veteran cop.
