I suddenly have the urge to own this horror classic, but alas it's not yet available on dvd.

I can't even remember who owns the rights to it, but whoever it is should consider releasing it, their are a lot of horror fans out their who would love to have this movie.

Who's with me?

I think this was released on the HBO label back in the 80's...not sure if they still have it. What a fun little flick this is, would love for Anchor Bay to tackle this one and supplement it with the alternate ending seen on TV prints.
My Blu-ray collection so far:Casino Royale, The Fifth Element, 300, Unforgiven, T2, The Descent, The Road Warrior, The Untouchables, Purple Rain, Deliverance

Boy, this brings back memories! If Anchor Bay did an SE of Night of the Creeps, I'd just have to buy a copy. Posted Image

I just watched this on Cinemax tonight, and the Tri-Star logo was right at the beginning, so this would be a Columbia/Tri-Star owned title. Maybe we should do some letter writing?

Check out the Horror Draft thread in Polls and you'll see that this is one of my absolute favorite horror films. Its also underrated as hell! Its a true gem of a movie that I've been dying to see on DVD since I first bought my player. Give me a remastered full blown SE, and I'd be in Heaven.

Night of the Creeps? I love this movie as well! It also has Dick Miller, my favorite cameo man who they get the flamethrower from near the end of the film. Hope it gets the DVD treatment soon!

I TiVoed it a few hours ago! Always had a real soft spot for this goofball flick. As a 14-year-old I was, like, soooooo impressed with myself for getting the "characters named as horror directors" schtick. Posted Image

I'd buy this one in a minute, especially if it's Anchor Bay doing the work.

(And I always thought it was really cool that Fred Dekker wrote both Night of the Creeps AND The Monster Squad. Where's this guy's fanboy website already?) Posted Image

From the Anchor Bay chat the other night:

Quote:
Any release plans for"NIght Of The Creeps" and "Trick Or Treats"? How about "Hard Rock Zombies"?

We've asked about NIGHT OF THE CREEPS and TRICK OR TREAT many times, but unfortunately they just aren't available to us. No plans for HARD ROCK ZOMBIES.

It would be extra nice if a NOTC DVD release could have both endings as a branching option.

Rights for this are likely up in the air. It was released on VHS on HBO video.

I met Chuck Gordon around the time he produced "Waterworld" and he was bowled over when I mentioned how much I dug this movie. Whatever happened to Fred Dekker after (ugh) "Robocop 3"?

No, it's a Columbia title. Whenever a movie is broadcast on TV, *somebody* has to be paid for it (unless it's in the public domain.) HBO video probably paid a licensing fee, much like they did with "Return of the Living Dead" all those years ago, but MGM owns that one now.

Columbia Tristar,

Please release Night Of The Creeps on DVD in its OAR. I like Night Of The Creeps but it is not yet on DVD. I will pick up a copy of NOTC once it makes it onto DVD.

Michael,

Not to be contrary, but are you sure that the rights are still with Sony? Because "The Hitcher" was a TriStar film as well and HBO still put out the DVD for that one back in 2000.
