Tom Atkins ("Night of the Creeps") Interview

Tom Atkins

In the 1980s, while muscle bound lunkheads like Stallone and Schwarzenegger were battling the forces of darkness with lame quips and a minor armory at their disposal, one man was doing it with nothing more a carton of cigarettes and a six-pack of beer. With his blue collar charm and everyman exterior, Tom Atkins became something of a minor league hero in some of the decade's favorite cult movies. He took on ghostly pirates in John Carpenter's The Fog (1980), an occult madman in Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) and a zombified lawman in Maniac Cop (1988).(read more...)

Bloody-Disgusting brings the very welcome news that Fred Dekker's Night of the Creeps, a film long absent from the home video market, will finally be coming out on DVD this October from Sony Home Video. According to DVD producer Michael Felsher in a chat with the horror podcast Deadpit.com, Dekker himself is putting together a director's cut that restores the original ending and that they are "going balls to the wall with the special features in it." I, for one, am excited as hell.

Night of the Creeps is an affectionate B-movie homage about alien parasites who turn their hosts into zombies. Tom Atkins himself stars as Detective Ray Cameron, a sardonic cop who gets all the best lines, including his oft-repeated greeting, "Thrill me." We'll have more news on this DVD as we get it.
