"Deadly Spawn, The" Boxart

A bright light slams into the ground near some campers. They go to investigate, and like most campers, end up dead.
The next morning, a couple wakes up to find a nightmare in their basement. The rest of the family (uncle, aunt, two sons) wake up and think that the parents have just gone to town. Meanwhile, the monstrosity in the basement continues to grow, and little spawns start running through the house (and out into town). Only a determined kid knows what to do to stop the...DEADLY SPAWN.
