is over now but, I just can’t help it. I’ve gotta watch George A. Romero’s Creepshow (1982). I came a little too late by mistake but, I still got to. Because this is the best of the best. The number 1 best anthology horror film. I need to watch this more because it’s been a while. After some thought & consideration, I’d say Creepshow (1982) is one of my favorite movies of all-time. It’s grown on me through time & become better & better. This film tells 5 stories based on ‘50s EC Comics. Each story is well-made.
- Father’s Day - A bitter old man comes back from the grave to kill his snobby family members. It feels like a classic revenge horror story & I like the creepy scenery.
- The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill - A hillbilly finds a meteor that grows a plant-like matter on everything it touches. It’s a classic homage to ‘50s sci-fi cheese done with a strangely comedic performance by horror writer, Stephen King.
- Something to Tide You Over - Leslie Nielsen gets revenge on his cheating wife by burying her & the lover neck deep in the sand as the tide comes in. Very suspenseful & scary while also showing comedian Leslie Nielsen’s talent of also playing serious roles.
- The Crate - A college janitor & professor find a strange crate that has a monster inside it. More gory & slasher-like to me but, done very well & scary. Praise to Hal Holbrook’s performance.
- They’re Creeping Up on You - A selfish dick with a bug phobia can’t seem to get rid of the crazy pest problem in his building. E.G. Marshall does a good job. I hate this asshole. He doesn’t even care when his workers commit suicide.
The whole movie is well-done, features horror regulars like Tom Atkins & Adrienne Barbeau & features great colorful camera-lighting that references the horror comics of the past. It is a true horror classic but, I think it’s also classic film in general. It’s very memorable & funny. My parents would watch this & laugh & joke at every funny thing that happens.
