About the Movie

Two macabre masters - writer Stephen King and director George A. Romero - conjure up five shocking yarns, each a virtuoso exercise in the ghouls-and-gags style of classic '50s horror comics. A murdered man emerges from the grave for Father's Day cake. A meteor's ooze makes everything ... grow. A professor selects his wife as a snack for a crated creature. A scheming husband plants two lovers up to their necks in terror. A malevolent millionaire with an insect phobia becomes the prey of a cockroach army. Add the spirited performances of a fine cast (Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, E.G. Marshall and King himself) and the ghoulish makeup wizardry of Tom Savini. Let the Creepshow begin.

Great movie - why cant we buy?!

The movie itself gets 5 stars but iTunes' offering gets one... why can't we have the option to buy it? It's a great movie that is spooky without building crushing tension or terror... five little stories that might be told around a campfire. For anyone who likes something a little unsettling but fun. The "gore" is very tame by today's standards.

So much fun!

I remember as a kid, sitting home on a Saturday night and stumbling across this movie. From the second I saw the dad yelling at the kid and the kid getting pissed and going to his room to find a floating skeleton outside his window I was hooked. Each story is good in its own way but I would have to say that "the crate" has to be my favorite.

Wonderful Movie

Ah, this movie really freaked me out as a kid. If you like revenge from beyond the grave and 50s horror comics and have somehow not already seen Creepshow on cable, do yourself a favor and rent the movie. Creepshow has a great cast, a great script, and it really feels like a labor of (ghoulish) love. There's nothing else quite like Creepshow.
