Night of the Creeps Trivia
We believe the following trivia is all legit. If it's bogus or you have additional info, please update us.
Thanks to PhatpantsWhen actor Anthony Michael Hall quit playing the character of Rusty Griswald after the first 'National Lampoon's Vacation' movie, the part went to "Night of the Creeps" lead actor Jason Lively.
Rewind Archive"Corman University," where events for Night of the Creeps take place, is named after director/producer Roger Corman.
Thanks to LoverswithCassieJason Lively's sister Lori Lively turns up in an uncredited role as Lori.
Rewind ArchiveThere is grafitti on the wall of the men's room where J.C. is trying to escape the slugs. It reads, "Go Monster Squad!" Reference to "The Monster Squad" (1987) which was also directed by Fred Dekker.
Thanks to Candace BeanJason Lively is also the Brother of Blake Lively (Gossip Girl, Sisterhood of the traveling pants), Eric Lively (L Word), Lori Lively and Robyn Lively, also a very popular 80s teen idol (Teen Witch). Also, son of actor Ernie Lively and Elaine Lively
Thanks to Bryan WoolleyIn one scene in the movie at the sorority house we see a cameo by Suzanne Snyder, who played Anthony Michael Hall's girlfriend in Weird Science, a movie which Jill Whitlow was also in, playing the perfume girl at the mall.
Thanks to Stefan AndrewsJill Whitlow and Jason Lively later co-starred in the kiddy horror flick "Ghost Chase".
Thanks to Jaison SchulerOn the opening day of the movie, the first 200 or so people to see it were issued "anti-scream" masks to prevent the slugs from entering your mouth (merely surgical masks with the Night of The Creeps logo/font on it) much like a William Castle movie gimmick.
Thanks to MatBrad, Allan Kayser, is the same guy who played BUBBA in "Moma's Family" another 80's tv show.
Thanks to phatpantsCult-movie buff Michael Felsher (a former employee of Anchorbay Entertainment, now head of Red Shirt Pictures) who spearheaded the recent (and extremely successful) special edition Monster Squad and Pumpkinhead DVDs, is hard at work on a new special edition version of Night of the Creeps. The new DVD will be avaliable in the U.S. in October 2009.
Thanks to John CabralThe 80's Christian heavy metal rock band Stryper was mentioned in grafitti in one of the bathroom stalls in the form of "Stryper Rocks!". The bands tie to the movie? Lead singer Michael Sweet's wife, Kyle Rae Tucy was the movies' make-up artist.
Thanks to LoverswithCassieTry to find scriptwriter Shane Black in an uncredited part as a policeman in the police station.
Rewind ArchiveTom Atkins, who plays detective Cameron, utters the line, "Dead guys who have been on ice for 27 years do not get up and walk away by themselves." This line is almost identical to the line, "2000 year old dead guys do not get up and walk away by themselves" which was spoken by actor Stephen Macht in the other Fred Dekker movie "The Monster Squad" -Self homage?
There's often fake stuff floating round, y'know? -Like the 'ghost boy' that can allegedly be seen in "Three Men And A Baby".
But, nothing bogus that we know yet for "Night of the Creeps".
