"Black-comedy shocker”| Cynthia
“CREEPSHOW (Scream Factory/Shout! Factory): The titans of terror Stephen King and George A. Romero joined forces for this deliriously entertaining, star-studded 1982 horror anthology that pays homage to such beloved, if once-controversial, comic books as Tales from the Crypt, Vault of Horror, Creepy, and Eerie.
The stars shine in the fast-paced, fun-filled vignettes: “Father’s Day” (Ed Harris, Viveca Lindfors, Carrie Nye), “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill” (with a scenery-chewing King in the title role), “Something to Tide You Over” (Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, Gaylen Ross), “The Crate” (Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Fritz Weaver),” and the capper, “They’re Creeping Up on You” (E.G. Marshall and a lot of cockroaches).”
