Monster Monday: Night of the Creeps

Happy Monster Monday, fiends! Today's monster comes from one of my favorite movies: Night of the Creeps, a fantastic homage to '50s B-movies directed by Fred Dekker and starring my man Tom Atkins as Detective Ray Cameron.

I love atomic age horror, and this is one of its most deliciously outrageous examples: Them!  The exclamation point is my favorite part, so I'm rather disappointed that it only appears in small print on the bottom of the poster, but … Continue reading Monster Monday: Them!
