On June 13th, 2009, the writer and director of Night of the Creeps appeared with his cast members at The Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, Texas before a crowded audience of nostalgic fans. Of course, the folks in the sold-out theater were "screamin' like banshees". In conjunction with Red Shirt Pictures and Sony Home Entertainment, the filmmakers were there to present the newly remastered and restored Director's Cut of the 80s' horror classic, in preparation for the long-awaited DVD release. After a screening of the film, a Q&A session took place. Lisa Tobias and I were in the audience, and Lisa managed to record the festivities, now posted here for all to enjoy.

Thanks goes out to editing wizard, Stuart Duncan for doing such a fantastic job on cleaning up the audio quality. Thanks also to my dear friend, Lisa for making my attendance possible and for basically being made of awesome. I miss you.

Special thanks goes out to Eric "Quint" Vespe, Michael Felsher, Fred Dekker, Jason Lively, Steve Marshall, Jill Whitlow, Tom Atkins and everyone at The Alamo Drafthouse for their part in such an amazing evening. I'll never forget it!

Note: Alcohol was being served at this event, so the crowd was very loose and rowdy. Fair warning for those easily offended, this podcast does contain some explicit language.
