Plot

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.

Production

"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

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

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]
