October 13th: Night of The Creeps (1986)
It's 1959 and Corman University student Pam (Alice Cadogan) is spending the night watching the stars with new boyfriend Johnny (Ken Heron) when they see what appears to be a flaming meteor crash into the woods near Route 66. Discovering the meteor to be a canister from outer space, Johnny is attacked by a slimy leech while Pam is chopped to pieces by an escaped mental patient (Ivan E. Roth).
Growing up, one of my all-time favorite movies was Fred Dekker's The Monster Squad, which told the story of monster-loving children fighting iconic horror villains Dracula, Frankenstein's Creature, The Wolf Man, The Mummy, and The Creature From The Black Lagoon. As a fan of the Universal Studio Monster classics from the '30s and '40s, I fell in love with The Monster Squad and my infatuation with the film continues to this day.
