First movie up is a campy horror gem that goes by the name of Night of the Creeps (1986). If you are a fan of zombie movies that like to give more laughs than unnerving freakouts, then this is definitely the movie for you. Set on a college campus, with loads of frats and sororities, it focuses in on a nerdy guy, who desperately wants the attention of a sorority girl. In order to win her over, he decides that he must pledge at the most popular fraternity with his best friend.
However, the pledge ends up being a joke on them, and even a bigger joke on the fraternity, when the two nerds accidentally thaw a corpse of an old fraternity member from the 1950s. This corpse happened to be infected by some strange alien brain parasite, which turns all of its hosts into horrible, brain-thirsty, flesh-loving zombies! Once unthawed, these little alien parasites spread like wildfire all over the campus. No one is safe! Will they be able to rid the campus of these monstrous creatures or will they all become zombies?! Watch to find out.
The corniness of this movie makes it great, as does the zombie makeup. I love 80s movies and I'm glad I stumbled upon this over the summer. It's the perfect movie to kick off the beginning of 31 Days of Horror! Not too scary, but good fun, and there will be more horror movies to come! Not all of them will be campy, some of them will be terrifying, so brace yourselves!
