One of the best horror anthologies to come out of the early 80s and one I practically grew up with. Using a very clever homage to the old EC horror comics and with it's black swollen tongue stuck firmly in it's skeletal cheek, this film takes us through a series of absolutely brilliant macabre stories specially written by Stephen King.
Classics include the wrath of a father who just wants his cake, a vengeful murderous husband who gets in some serious deep water..*snigger*, a hapless fool who should never have touched a fallen meteor, a desperately unhappy man finding the perfect alternative to a divorce thanks to the unlikely discovery of a crate and a contemptible tycoon with a phobia of bugs getting just what he deserves. There's also a neat little filler story that connects them altogether. The only flaw in Creepshow is that nobody told Stephen King he couldn't act. His little stint in front of the camera is quite memorable...for all the wrong reasons... This movie is like black bloody chicken soup for the ever hungry horror loving soul. Highly recommended!
