Night of the Creeps is a geektastic conglomerate of sci-fi, comedy and horror, with enough genre jokes to keep true horror fans squealing with delight. Made with only practical effects and a whole lotta love--Dekker is a director who truly understands his fan base. "...I believe that the movies that you see when you are young are the ones that stick with you, and I think that [Creeps] accrued this affection over time, to the point where people started to look back with a lot of enthusiasm," Dekker said of the film in a recent interview with FEARnet. He also discusses some of the DVD extras. "The real centerpiece of the DVD, apart from the fantastic new remastering and the 5.1 mix tweak...is the documentary. It's really great. We talked to everybody. It's very candid and behind-the-scenes. I think fans of the film are really going to enjoy it," Dekker reveals.

Though not successful during its release, Creeps amassed a huge following through the video circuit and now a new generation can appreciate the film through its DVD release. That's the stuff that dreams are made of.
