The Plot: 

A father takes away his son's horror comic and throws it in the garbage. The skeleton from the magazine shows up to let the kid see all five of the stories in the comic one last time.

This show is great! Written by and starring Stephen King, and directed by George Romero (NIGHT, DAWN, and DAY OF THE DEAD). The five stories titles and story lines are as follows:

FATHER'S DAY
Bedelia - Killed her father, while making him a cake on Father's Day, and has the nerve to visit his grave on the anniversary of it. Choked to death.
Nathan - Bedelia's dad. Comes back from the grave for some cake.
Hank, Richard, and Sylvia - They all share in the money inheritance. Most are beheaded in some way.
A man killed by his daughter on Father's Day returns from the grave searching for his Father's Day cake.

THE LONESOME DEATH OF JORDY VERILL
Jordy - Stephen King! A farmer that dies a lonesome death.
Based on The Blob. A farmer finds a meteor and accidentally breaks it open, spilling a blue liquid. Strange weeds start growing from the crater and on anything the liquid touched, including the farmer.

SOMETHING TO TIDE YOU OVER
Richard - Leslie Nielsen! He is not funny in this role as an insane and jealous husband. Killed by Harry and Becky.
Harry - Ted Danson! He's not too cheery when he's killed. Drowns.
Becky - Richard's cheating wife. Drowns.
Two lovers are buried up to their neck in the sand at low tide by an insanely jealous husband.

THE CRATE
Henry - Henpecked professor. Hates his wife.
Dexter - Horny professor. Gets distracted from coming on to woman by finding the crate.
Mike - Unfortunate janitor who finds the crate. Can no longer play the violin. Heck, he couldn't play a harmonica anymore.
Charlie - Unfortunate student who tries to measure the bite marks on Mike's shoe.
Wilma - Henry's henpecking wife. Fed to the monster.
A janitor at a college (between semesters) finds a one-hundred and fifty year-old crate; he and a professor open it. Inside they find a monkey-like creature with a huge appetite. Another professor, Henry, decides this could be the key to the divorce he's been wanting.

THEY'RE CREEPING UP ON YOU
Upson Pratt - Hateful jerk. Figures with a name like that. Killed by roaches.
White - Black building superintendent that Pratt doesn't like and racially insults often.
Mrs. Katsenmeyer - Mad widow. Wishes Pratt a horrible death.
An old, hateful company head that lives in a germ proof, airtight apartment is battling roaches. After he insults the crying wife of a man whose company he took over, prompting the man to commit suicide, thirty thousand or so roaches show him that nothing is airtight and teach him a lesson.

My favorites from this were always "The Crate," and They're Creeping Up On You." During "Creep" you can feel the roaches crawl on you. This show is a good one for a lights-off movie with the wife. Lots of good shocks, enough cheesiness to be fun, and the willies.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • Some guys will do anything for a piece of cake.
  • People who have weeds growing on them are afraid of doctors.
  • Never open an old crate, but, if you do, look close before sticking your arm in it.
  • Roaches seem to be in tune with the wishes of recent widows.

Richard taunts Harry over the closed-circuit system he set up to watch the spectacle. Harry responds with verbal hatred. Heck, there is no reason for him not to curse the bastard with his last breaths (actually his last breaths will be sea water, but I digress).

This is my all-time favorite horror flick! I can easily be impressed by horror flicks and b-movies, so I usually say that after I see one for the first time. But I GUARANTEE this remains in my TOP TEN list of horror flicks! I can't even believe this was considered a BAD movie! I just hope Stephen King also starts turning Creepshow into an entire comic book SERIES! If he does, I'm also hoping they'll be clean enough for pre-teen readers! Then I'd BEG my parents for a subscription!

This is my favorite horror movie.  I wanted the comic way back in '88 or something,I'm 27 now , so I was pretty young growing up watching all the horror,Jason, Freddy, April fools Day, Hellraiser, Phantasm.  Anyways I finally got the comic but was disappointed because it was different from the one in the movie and it was in real bad shape.  Anyways I found out that the one that was in the movie was an only copy.  About five years later I went back to the same comic book store and the owner said "Hey! Remember that Creepshow comic I got for you a long time ago?  Well, a friend of mine found an old box of them in mint condition and I bought 2 of them.  One of them is for you."  He gave it to me for the old cover price.  Just got it on DVD.  Break out the popcorn and a blanket and enjoy.

"Henry, you remind me of a regular barnyard exhibit.  Sheep's eyes, chicken guts, piggy friends,....and s**t for brains!"        'Billie'

Hum...this film doesn't belong.  Nothing bad about this at all.  I've loved this since it came out.  It's now a yearly October viewing.  Stephen King turning into a plant is one of my favorite things ever!

Well, over time "Bad movie" has come to refer to movies that aren't actually bad but just B or cheesy to some people.

I love this movie, and the second one. I have both on dvd. I only recently saw them though, maybe a year or too ago. My father told me about them, said it was a good movie. My favorites from the first were The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verill, The Crate, and They're Creeping Up On You. Although neither Creepshow  ever scared me, except for "The Raft" on the second one. That one scares me for some reason. Stupid floating trash bag monster!

Father's Day would have been a little better if they left in the scene that explains why Nathan is so hard to snuff out.

What a classic movie.

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
