Fun piece of nostalgia. Scary, creepy, campy, gory, funny... its all here. Favorite story has got to be "The Crate". Great fun.

Creepshow is one of those movies that you love growing up. It's bloody and looks funny and scary. So in essence Romero and King really captured the feel of the 50's EC comics. Not only that, but it seems everyone in this movie is enjoying being in it and doing the best they can, Hal Holbrook being my personal favourite. Very enjoyable and not too scary. Like the cover says, "The Most Fun You'll Ever Have Being Scared". Too bad the sequel(s) ruined the whole thing, I would've loved to seen more of these done right.

A cute tongue-in-cheek offer from George Romero and Stephen King - Creepshow is truly a salute to the '50s horror comics that caused such a stir. It's hard to pick a favorite show - probably the last of the five - I hate roaches.

A Little Bit of Everything

Creepshow has a mix of different elements to make the movie one of the most well-rounded horror movies that I've ever seen. There are five different stories, each more unique than the last.

The first story was "Father's Day". The story and characters were alright, but the overall appearance and showing of the segment was unoriginal and boring. The segment dragged on and on, almost as if it would never end. When the segment ended, I was almost relieved. I couldn't wait to see the next one.

Speaking of, the next segment was called "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill" which features Stephen King himself. I loved the idea for the story, but not really how it played out. There was something about the way the story was shown that I didn't care for. I was surprised to see that Stephen Kin...

Still fun and entertaining.

'Creepshow' is a movie consisting of five short stories, written by Stephen King, all produced in a style inspired by the classic 1950's EC Comics. Directed by George A.Romero (Night of the Living Dead) and starring a cast of then largely unknowns - most of whom are now household names - 'Creepshow' offers an interesting glimpse into what great minds can do when they work together.

The first story is called 'Father's Day' and is probably the weakest of the five. A young Ed Harris and assorted relatives get together to remember a family member who was murdered by his long suffering daughter. Only problem is that on this Father's day, dad has come back to join the party!
'The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill' stars King himself as the character of the title, who is a backwoods farmer ...

2 Out of 5 Stories Were Good...

I expected solid horror before coming into this picture because the five short stories were written by Stephen King. Unfortunately, only two out of the five worked (”The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill” and “Something to Tide You Over”), and I almost liked “They’re Creeping Up on You” because the cockroaches made my spine tingle but the execution was poor. The remaining two, “Father’s Day” and “The Crate” dragged on forever and weren’t scary at all (but I did like Hal Holbrook’s performance in the latter story). I guess the stories are more experimentation with the macabre than outright horror. That’s why about 80% of the stories are more comedic than anything. I was actually impressed with Stephen King for playing a redneck farmer in “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill.” He was funny an...
