Night of the Creeps

Comparison:

  • Original Version
  • Extended TV-Version
Release: Nov 23, 2009 - Author: Scat - Translator: ManfredR - external link: IMDB
In 1992 an alternative version of "Night of the Creeps" has been broadcasted in the Dutch Pay-TV. This version itself is not ominous as it seems because it's obviously a US-TV version. This can be assumed because in this version billingsgate has been censored and some seconds of gore have been removed. Therefore this version features a little more of action and an alternative ending director Fred Dekker primarily wanted to use. The producers couldn't understand about this ending and insisted in an ending with a blow off.
In fact the ending is a little bit cold-turkey what allegedly resulted of the early presentation of the end-sequence to the producers and Dekker then didn’t have enough time to finish it.

The so-called Director's Cut which was released on DVD and Blu-Ray only features the alternate ending but none of the other extended scenes.

Compared is this Extended TV-Version from channel "Filmnet" with the Japanese Laserdisc, which contains the original version.

Red labeled words of sound censoring in the following report are not available in the Dutch Version. Remarks in square brackets at new action scenes are available in the standard version and serve only for own classification.

Unfortunately it hasn’t been always easy to understand all dialogs. So it can be that some words are not correct in the mentioned dialog censoring and I want to thank you for your comprehension. Who, referring to this, has any proposals for changes please do not hesitate sending us your comments.

The specified running times is in accordance with the Japanese Version (except the cutting times).

This scene runs longer in the Dutch version: The girls excitedly mill around. One of the girls calls Pam telling her date has arrived. We see the boy waiting in the house. He notices that he gets spied by someone. When he tries looking back the girls are hiding again.
Pam is walking down the stairs.
He says: "Gosh, I didn`t know Grace Kelly was a Kappa Delta".
Pam (with a smile): "...oh you."
The hidden girls gesticulate to his remark and finally both are leaving.
