"It's miller time."
Before the 80s were constantly being referenced and parodied today, that decade brought us filmmakers who grew up in the 50s giving audiences homages to the films of that era. One of them was Fred Dekker, with his film Night Of The Creeps.
One thing that Dekker understands that other filmmakers today miss though is that, with maybe one or two exceptions, you must avoid just constantly winking at the camera or going "Hey this is pretty silly, like those old films right?". It's silly, but he keeps it serious, which adds to the charm of the film.
Tom Atkins is just amazing, grabbing each scene he's in and never letting go. Dick Miller shows up for a scene, always love him. The creature effects are also great, and each "zombie" has a different look than the last.
