Night of the Creeps: Vote for the new cover!




On October 20th, I finally get to trade in my bootleg Night of the Creeps dvd and be the proud owner of a shiny new, Director’s Cut version.

The only thing is, I don’t know what the cover is going to look like. Amazon.com is offering the chance for people to vote for the new cover here.

With the three options available, I’m not much of a fan of any of them. What the hell is up with the Frankenstien dude on the cover? If I had to choose, I would go with # 2. The colors for #1 seem off and a little cartoony and #3 reminds me of a Critters poster. I like the vintage feel that #2 has and it’s almost comic book-like which I dig.

I don’t know why any of the poster art was not an option for the cover. I personally would like this one:



Oh well. So far after voting it looks like #1 is taking the lead with 55 percent. Boo. But overall it won’t matter to me what the cover looks like because it’s what’s inside that counts. The dvd will contain:


“Birth of Creeps” featuring Dekker talking about the origins of the project

Cast of the Creeps” featuring Jason Lively, Tom Atkins, Steve Marshall and Jill Whitlow

“Creating The Creeps” featuring interviews with SFX creators David B. Miller and Robert Kurtzman

A special Tom Atkins centric piece called “Tom Atkins: Man of Action”

“Escape of the Creeps” a detailed look at the post-production.

Deleted scenes

Fred Dekker solo commentary

Cast commentary featuring Atkins, Whitlow, Marshall and Lively

The original theatrical ending

And footage from the Cast and Crew reunion screening at the Alamo Drafthouse.



I’m looking forward to the release.

  1. Wow! You weren't kidding. Those are terrible. I agree, why not go with the poster artwork? I love the poster. Or a variation of the poster artwork. Not sure who sits there and looks at those three and thinks – this will get people to buy it. If I didn't know what it was I wouldn't even pick up the box to look at it with one of those covers.
