The Creeps is a horror-comedy movie released in 1997. The movie is directed by Charles Band, who is known for his work in horror films. The film stars Rhonda Griffin, Justin Lauer, Bill Moynihan, and a few other actors. The story of The Creeps revolves around an old scientist named Dr. Winston Berber (played by Bill Moynihan) who has been working on a serum that can turn people into monsters. He hires a group of young people to retrieve a small batch of the serum from his lab so that he can continue his experiments. However, the serum ends up falling into the hands of a group of mischievous monsters that were locked up in the same lab. The monsters, who were created by Dr. Berber in his earlier experiments, manage to escape and start to cause chaos around the city.

The group of young people who retrieved the serum, consisting of Megan (Rhonda Griffin), Duane (Justin Lauer), Dennis (Kristin Norton), and Ronnie (Jon Simanton), are pursued by the monsters throughout the movie. Meanwhile, Dr. Berber is on the lookout for the serum that the group has acquired, and he will stop at nothing to get it back.

The Creeps is more of a horror-comedy rather than a straight-up horror film. The monsters in the movie are portrayed in a somewhat cartoonish and comedic manner, with exaggerated facial expressions and silly mannerisms. The comedic aspect of the movie is brought to life by some of the actors' performances, most notably Rhonda Griffin's portrayal of Megan, who is goofy, energetic, and always ready with a quip or a witty remark.

As the movie progresses, the monsters become more and more integrated with the city's population. This leads to some hilarious scenes of monster-infested nightclubs, bars, and restaurants. There are also a few jump scares scattered throughout the movie, but they are not too intense, as the movie maintains a light-hearted tone throughout.

The special effects used in the movie are typical of a low-budget horror film from the '90s, but they are still charming in their own way. The monsters are portrayed using masks and prosthetics, which add a level of authenticity to their appearance. The makeup on the actors is also very well done, with some of the characters looking downright disgusting.

The music in the movie is also worth mentioning, as it is composed by Richard Band, Charles Band's brother. The film's score ranges from creepy and atmospheric to upbeat and playful, depending on the scene. The music helps to set the tone for the movie and add to the overall experience.

Overall, The Creeps is an enjoyable horror-comedy that is perfect for a night in with friends. It is not a movie that takes itself too seriously and is aware of its own absurdity. The movie is filled with cheesy one-liners, over-the-top performances, and silly monsters that will make you laugh and cringe at the same time. If you are a fan of horror-comedies, then The Creeps is definitely worth checking out.

The Creeps is a 1997 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 14 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.3.
