/Film LA: Monster Creeps – Fred Dekker’s ‘Night of the Creeps’ and ‘The Monster Squad’ Art Show, Screening and Q&A
Posted on Wednesday, August 3rd, 2011 by Germain Lussier
Fred Dekker isn’t a household name but, for a large portion of us, his films are household essentials. Films like Night of the Creeps and The Monster Squad are cult classics revered almost thirty years later and this Saturday Night in Burbank, CA, they’ll both be celebrated. Chogrin presents an event called Monster Creeps, a one night only art show featuring works inspired by those two films followed by an intimate, big screen screening of The Monster Squad. Dekkar will be on hand to for a signing and will be part of a Q&A, moderated and led by yours truly. We’ll premiere some of the art later this week, but we wanted to alert everyone to this awesome event so you can begin to set your schedule. Get all the specifics after the jump as well as your first look at the event poster by Justin Gray.
Here’s the poster by Justin Gray.
