Creepozoids (1987)

Contains spoilers.

In a post-apocalyptic world where rain burns like acid (cue grainy stock footage of rainclouds) a small group of survivors take shelter in a mysteriously abandoned complex, where they find food, hot showers, working computers, a laboratory, and a big bloodthirsty monster.

attack of the killer ratThe survivors include Linnea Quigley who wastes no time in getting her boobs out for the audience. Well – there is a shower, and a hunky bloke called “Butch” (snicker). And the group are all dirty, unwashed and grimy (though perfectly clean-shaven in the case of the men).

They discover the laboratory, which contains IT equipment and a slightly unconvincing severed head. Presumably the computers have been left switched on a *very* long time, if the pre-Windows DOS and 5-and-a-quarter-inch floppy disks are anything to go by.

There are animal cages that have been broken out of, surprisingly well-lit crawl spaces, and long corridors with doors the whole length (as if this were filmed within a storage facility). Characters get attacked by an inanimate giant rat cuddly toy. The women wear white tops with no bra, and it looks like the set was a bit nippy. Half way through a communal meal (does that sound familiar?) a character starts roaring and vomiting up black stuff.

The main creature is not unlike Alien, though with mandibles, and is more obviously  a man in a monster suit. Oh, and if you decide to attack a monster with a big syringe, the element of surprise might work better if you don’t yell “Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaargh!” while running towards it from behind.

But that’s not the end! It gives birth to some kind of demonic Cabbage Patch Doll puppet, one of the funniest (and most bizarre) mutant monsters I’ve seen in a long time!

This is a surprisingly short film (just over an hour) but that felt about right for it. It’s cheap looking, cheesy, dated, in questionable taste, with amusing monsters, and bare boobies. What more could you want from an 80s B-movie?

 

Creepozoids is available to purchase at amazon.co.uk, amazon.com, play.com and other retailers.
