Movieweb.com has a keen interview up with writer/director Fred Dekker (who’s also the man behind another cult horror comedy, Monster Squad) in anticipation of this long-awaited event.

squadcreepsFans of true cult cinema have a reason to rejoice this Halloween season, as Fred Dekker, the mastermind behind the hugely popular The Monster Squad, is finally bringing his elusive, long absent underground horror hit Night of the Creeps to DVD and Blu-ray on October 27th. To help celebrate the release, we recently caught up with the prolific director for a no holds barred interview that covers his whole career (including his own ruminations about the much maligned RoboCop 3 some fifteen years after its release). It’s a great interview that you can read below in our DVD section. While discussing Night of the Creeps, Dekker spoke more about his plans for a sequel which would reunite the entire cast some twenty years after the events of that faithful night in 1986. He also discussed the upcoming Rob Cohen remake of his beloved The Monster Squad, and the project he is currently working on, which is a feature length adaptation of the Bill Rose documentary The Loss of Nameless Things.

Make sure you pick up your copy ASAP.
