CREEPSHOW / Creepshow Films Inc., Laurel Entertainment Inc. - 1982

I'll be unloading a lot of eighties movies over the next few months in an attempt to include more movies we have yet to review. Eegah!! and I divide our review choices up, he basically despises the newer movies so it's my job to fill in the blanks in our quest to cover as many movies as we can before we've had enough and tap out. Today's post is number 2045 on the old dusty Dungeon trail to oblivion...

Today's feature is one I saw when it came out, it's all about horror comics and how much kids love them. But, this dad is livid over his son's addiction to weird stuff.

I have a sound clip from this flick for your approval, sooooo, you can push the big red 'GO' button located there by our pre-code horror comic collection, NOW, Ralphie The Tarantula!.. Here's... CREEPSHOW!

The first of five stories deals with a crazy old rich coot that returns from the grave in order to get the Father's Day cake his murdering daughter never served him.

But, at the end, he gets his cake and eats it too!

Our second story stars Stephen King as country hayseed Jordy Verrill, he makes the stupid mistake of touching one of Lovecraft's missing meteorites after it crashes near his house.

Well, everything he touches turns into foliage because he's now a plant! And, the infection just keeps on spreading across the countryside, happy nightmares ever'bloody!

In this tale, Leslie Nielsen plays a real little bitch, here, he has a devilish plan for Ted Danson and his cheating wife...

Of course, the plan backfires big time and Leslie ends up buried in the sand hisself, waiting for the tide to come in!

The fourth tale is about a gruesome creature that resides in a crate at the local college and the bloody mystery surrounding it.

Let's put it this way... Get me the Hell out of here!!!

E.G. Marshall is millionaire Upson Pratt in the last story, he hates people, he hate germs, he hates bugs... He's locked up in his high rise apartment in a Howard Hughes type existence. What he does love though is money and power.

He can't get anyone to help him when tons of cockroaches infest and invade his shining domain, oh well! Tune in again on Wednesday when we'll have another review just for you.

My favorite of the bunch is the creature in the box. Never cared for the cockroach one. Definitely worth watching for me!

The movie was written by King, who badly overplays the 'hayseed'. Overall, one of George Romero's lesser efforts.

The Flock Of Seagulls of horror movies!

I agree with Randall Landers, but in my case it's because roaches are my only phobia! So it doesn't matter what the quality of the story is, because that's enough to wreck it for me.
