  • Creepshow (1982)

    So I watched (most of) Creepshow for the first time last night. It was entertaining, but I don't know that I'd go as far as to call it good just yet. I made it to the Ted Danson/Leslie Nielson segment and had to call it a night.

    It was far too quirky for me to consider it straight up horror, but it had something about it that made me really enjoy it. Who knows.

    You guys' thoughts on the film? And is Creepshow 2 worth checking out?
    ...to drink and fight.

    Creepshow is a favorite film of mine by Romero. It's goofy and still delivers on the creepiness. The Crate is up next in Creepshow after Leslie Nielsen's segment. That's a good one. They Creep Up On You has a lot of bug action and a pretty good story.

    Creepshow 2 is also pretty cool. Old Cheif Woodenhead is a good story with some gore. The Raft has some nudity and a decent story. The Hitch Hiker is probably my favorite of Creepshow 2, it's just cool.

      Creepshow is one of my fav films ever. It is quirky but it's fun without being slapstick or Tromaesque. It delivers the goods on all levels: acting, music, FX, scares. I just can't praise it enough. Creepshow 2, however... The Raft was pretty good and faithful to his short story but the rest of it is a wasted mess.

        great film the second one was ok but if you're being really picky about the first one then im sure the sequel will let you down...I, on the other hand, LOVED the sequel

            The first one is good, the second one I didn't care much for.

              i am proud to say i won BOTH of the creepshows, the first one is better, but part 2 was amazing other than the cheif woodenhead one, to drug out.

                        I love that one, the play on Howard Hughes' obsession with clean

                          Love both of these although the first one was twice as good as the second.

                          I have never done drugs and I never will. I was even the best student in the D.A.R.E. program back in the 80s.

                            I love both of them. The first one's better, but not miles better. The second is pretty decent.
