Overview

Two of the most venerable names in the horror field, author Stephen King and director George A. Romero, present this anthology of original twisted tales inspired by the E.C. horror comics of the 50's and 60's themselves a more direct basis for the popular Tales from the Crypt TV series. The five stories are framed within the pages of a comic book which a boy's insensitive father has thrown in the garbage. The first tale, "Father's Day," features a zombie patriarch returning to claim his Father's Day cake; "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill" stars King himself as a slack-jawed yokel whose discovery of a radioactive meteorite turns him into a walking weed; "Something to Tide You Over" presents a deadly-serious Leslie Nielsen as a cuckolded husband who plans an elaborate seaside revenge; "The Crate" unleashes its ferocious man-eating contents on the enemies of a meek college professor; and "They're Creeping Up On You" pits obsessively-clean billionaire E.G. Marshall against a swarm of cockroaches in his sterile penthouse. The chapters are uniformly creative, filmed in garish comic-book colors, and Tom Savini's makeup effects are quite memorable particularly the monster from "The Crate", though the campy treatment does become exhausting after two hours' runtime. The final segment is the most impressive, thanks to Marshall's over-the-top performance, though the planned scope of the cockroach invasion was drastically reduced no doubt due to budget constraints.

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.

    I did have fun, but wasn't scared.

    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.

    Creepshow

    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.
