Overview

Stephen King writes as George Romero directs the spine-tingling horror-fest Creepshow. Warner has done a passable job on this 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen transfer. A small amount of dirt and grain show up in a few key scenes, though overall this is a solid transfer with bright colors and even looking fleshtones. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 2.0 and sounds very flat. While a Dolby 5.1 remix would have certainly been welcome, this 2.0 soundtrack works well within the confines of the movie. All aspects of the dialogue, eerie effects, and scary music are free of any distortion or hiss. Also included on this disc are English and French subtitles. Sadly, Creepshow fans will have to wait for the next incarnation of this movie; the only extra feature on this disc is a measly theatrical trailer.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Robert Firsching
This is a very entertaining tribute to the EC horror comics of the 1950s from the director of Night of the Living Dead. The five stories, written by Stephen King, are bookended with some nice comic-book art by Bernie Wrightson and a cute framing story involving a boy whose father objects to his "Creepshow" magazines. The stories themselves feature an all-star cast and great special effects by makeup wizard Tom Savini. "Father's Day" and "Something to Tide You Over" deal with vengeful zombies, "The Lonely Death of Jordy Verrill" is a Blob-derived tale with King taken over by an alien plant; "The Crate" has a henpecked professor feeding his shrewish wife to a toothsome monster; and "They're Creeping Up on You" features a finicky landlord plagued by cockroaches. "The Crate" is probably the best of the lot, but the last story is the most memorable. There's nothing more disgusting than thousands of squirming cockroaches, and the final shot is one of the horror cinema's classic gross-outs. Witty, grotesque, and visually engaging, Creepshow is a treat.

This movie is a horror masterpiece!Romero, King, and Savini at thier best. If only we can convince Romero to direct a movie on ''The Mist''...

Creepshow is the best horror movie on earth. Never has it's not gross but it's creepy.

The best thing about was that Stephen King wrote it, George Romero directed it, and Leslie Nielson was in it (Even though it wasnt a comedy). I only bought it cause it was dirst cheap at Walmart. Too comic like and it reminded me of old 50's horor movies which was what Stephen King wanted.

Creepshow is a movie about comic like in the 1950's comic book. It has 5 good stories which is about a zombie out to get his cake, retard is turning into a weed, 2 people are burried under the sand, a monster comes out of a crate eating people, and crazy man vs. cockaroaches. These stories are grusome and cool thanks King and Romero and Savini.
