A flop at the box office that has gone on to develop a strong cult following, Night of the Creeps is a loving and stylish tribute to B-movies that takes elements from alien invasion, slasher and zombie flicks to create its own unique story.

It also has a screenplay packed full of amazing lines, as evident by the clip below.

World War Z - Film4 - 11.15pm

Another zombie movie, except this time a blockbuster and featuring Brad Pitt.
