Night of the Creeps (with director Fred Dekker in person)
Friday, July 21, 10pm
The Cinefamily

"Though it was overlooked during the busy summer movie schedule of 1986, Fred Dekker’s Night of the Creeps has gone on to become a quintessential cult classic. A loving homage to the B movies of the 1950s, Dekker’s winningly gruesome horror comedy mashes up elements of atomic age sci-fi, Romero zombies, slashers, and 80s teen comedy, magically landing on a recipe for pure fun."

We get two different movies to be made fun of by the current Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew in LA this July. It's part of the US Tour, the "Watch Out for Snakes!" Tour.

Whose showing up? "Appearing with Joel and Jonah live on stage will be robot companions Crow, Tom Servo and Gypsy, along with Synthia (Rebecca Hanson) and her Bonehead henchmen. Of course, it wouldn’t be MST3K without the ever-present surveillance of the Mads, Kinga Forrester (Felicia Day) and TV’s Son of TV’s Frank (Patton Oswalt) checking up on their unwilling test subjects via remote video."

For the films  "Show # 1 is the MST3K favorite “Eegah” featuring all new riffs and sketches.  Show # 2 is a “Secret Surprise Film!” It’s a fun, sci-fi thriller never-before featured on MST3K and will appear only in select cities."
