Creepozoids is a 1987 low budget science fiction/horror, the first 35mm film directed by David DeCoteau, and starring Linnea Quigley, Ken Abraham, Michael Aranda and Kim McKamy (later known as Ashlyn Gere.) It was remade in 1997 as Hybrid.

Plot[edit]

Set in 1998, six years after an apocalyptic nuclear war, a group of army deserters take refuge from acid rain in a seemingly abandoned laboratory complex.

They soon discover that the lab was a top-secret government research center, where a hideous (if rather fickle) genetically-engineered monster still lurks.

  • Ken Abraham as Butch
  • Michael Aranda as Jesse
  • Richard L. Hawkins as Jake
  • Ashlyn Gere as Kate
  • Joi Wilson as Woman

Production[edit]

"Creepozoids was shot in 15 days in a warehouse in Los Angeles. I think the budget was something like 150k. It was a difficult shoot because of all the FX and monster sequences. Lotsa slime and very ambitious. Linnea Quigley starred in it and we had a great time working together. It was my first feature shot in 35mm. It was theatrically released and a hit on video."

Reception[edit]

Critical reception for the film has been mostly negative. TV Guide awarded the film 1 star out of 4 calling it another Alien imitation.[1]

Home Video Release[edit]

The film was first released on DVD by Full Moon Home Video on December 9, 2003. Since then it has been released multiple times by different studios.[2]
