1982’s Creepshow is a homage to the old 1950s E.C. comics of the same name. For years E.C. comics brought horror to the imaginations of the youth through their Creepshow comic. This movie brings that comic creepy-fun to the big screen.
George A. Romero and Stephen King bring five tales of terror to the screen with many big (at least for 1982) stars. This movies is a wild, fun ride through the horror genre with a little bit for everyone. See a jealous husband (played by Leslie Nielsen) get revenge on his wife and her lover… just to see the tables reversed soon after. Or maybe you’s rather see a hen packed husband (played by Hal Holbrook), help a friends with a sticky situation while taking care of his alcoholic, abusive wife (played by Adrienne Barbeau). Or maybe a hillbilly (played by Stephen King) that turns to a weird plant/animal after messing with a meteor that that falls in his back yard. Like I said, there’s enough for everyone here.
For younger fans of horror, I am sure this is going to come across as pretty cheezy- hey, get over it! This movie is about classic comic book horror, and if you can’t get your head around that then it just wouldn’t be for you any way. Thay said, this is a fun ride that I think you should take!
