Product Description

Inspired by the controversial E.C. Comics of the 1950s--which also provided the title and inspiration for the popular Tales from the Crypt TV series--director George Romero and screenwriter Stephen King serve up five delightfully frightful stories. Utilizing comic-book panels, animated segues, and exaggerated lighting and camera angles, Romero and cinematographer Michael Gornick come very close to replicating a horror comic in film format. The results mix fine acting with the morbid sense of humor and irony that made the E.C. books so popular in their heyday. Actors such as Leslie Nielsen, Hal Holbrook, Ted Danson, Adrienne Barbeau, Ed Harris, E.G. Marshall, and even King appear in the stories, which include tales of a sinister father's day celebration, a mysterious meteor, seaweed-draped zombies, a monster in a crate, and a cockroach-phobic millionaire. Fiendishly fun fare from one of horror's most famous directors. --Bryan Reesman

5.0 out of 5 stars As Dependable as always! June 15 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
When this came out in theaters, we all went multiple times to see it because it was so darned good....now, on DVD, we show people this again and again because generations need to be reminded of how we use to do things without CGI and still kept it excellent!...

4.0 out of 5 stars Stephen King's tribute to good old E.C. Comics March 16 2003
By Daniel Jolley TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Rather than attempt to avoid charges of cheesiness, Creepshow embraces such a characterization, patterning itself openly on the old E.C. horror comics of the 1950s, those delightful horror-filled books of illustrated wonder which the horror-phobic among the general population brought down with their baseless charges of fragile little mind corruption. The movie is framed around a modern-day father who all but thrashes his son for having brought a Creepshow comic book into the house. Out in the trash the comic book goes, where an animated horror-meister and a cooperative set of wind gusts take us through its pages of old-style, campy spooks and scares. Each of the five stories making up the bulk of this movie are delivered in the form of a cinematic comic book, with the opening and closing of each tale of terror literally presented inside the type of illustrated frame found therein. Each of the stories is good but perhaps not great, enjoyable but not overly exciting. Among a cast of several big-name actors, a certain fellow from Maine comes close to stealing the show.
In Father’s Day, you have your basic decayed dead body crawling up out of the grave to demand the final wish denied him in his final moments of life. This is really the most stereotypical of the five vignettes, although it does offer a modern example of hideousness in the form of Ed Harris dancing. Next up is The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill, wherein a half-wit of sorts discovers that meteorites from the heavens bring with them something more than the prospect of a couple of hundred bucks from the university science department. This story could easily be called It Grows on You. Playing the part of Jordy is none other than Stephen King himself, and I believe he gives a rather remarkable performance.

This is, for me, the best short story horror film i seen so far. I seen a good amount, i am not going to say all but i seen enough to know what is good and not good. This is the best. I love all the stories, some have there weak moments but the one wih the moster in the box and the roaches are the best. I dont want to type a lot but pure in simple this movie is a good rental and worth 10 or 15 bucks in my book.

3.0 out of 5 stars it has its charm June 4 2004
Format:VHS Tape
What can you say about this movie? It isn't the best movie King has written, not by far. Romero has given us better films--Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead. It has bad animation. Bad effects (even though I am a Savini fan). Bad acting, though we get a young Ed Harris and Leslie Nielsen does put in a surprisingly good performance. And it has those annoying comic book frames within frames. There is a lot to hate about this film. But it does have a certain charm to it. Ted Danson helpless and not so suave or in control. A gruesomeness to it. King plays the hokey hick very well. You can't help but to like this movie, bad as it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars For TALES FROM THE CRYPT fans everywhere! May 5 2004
By P. Krug
Format:DVD
The film tells the story of a young boy whose comic contains five stories told in the same vein of early 50's horror comic stories. The film is written by Stephan King (who also appears in the second story in his only starring role,) and directed by George A. Romerio (origonal LIVING DEAD trilogy). Included also are a few brief animated sequences.
A man pays a visit to his family from beyond the grave...
A farmer finds a meteorite that, when broken, spills fourth a strange moss that grows on everything, including his own flesh...
A man and his lover seek revenge on her husband AFTER they've been murdered...
A mysterious crate found in the basement of a college hids some thing that should never be let out. You're about to find out what...
Finally, a cold-hearted billionare with a horrible fear of germs and insects finds his penthouse apartment infested with nine hundread QUADRILLION cockroaches!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good price! April 26 2004
Format:DVD
I remember seeing this as a kid and loving it. I love some of the offerings here as the film is like reading an old 1950's horror comic. It's not really scary but more tongue in cheek shlocky stuff. I find it a blast to watch. Grab the sequel also!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a blast! April 21 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
The movie's tag line is true: "The most fun you'll ever have being scared!" Although this movie is not nearly the scariest one you'll ever see, it sure is entertaining. It succeeds where countless later movies such as "The Crow" failed: cinematically achieving the look and feel of a comic book. As my wife said, "It was just like sitting down and reading one of those old things!" The "things" in question are the gruesome E.C. horror comics, which parents back in the fifties desperately tried to keep their kids from reading.
What's great about the movie are the things that make other movies bad: overacting, exaggerated camera work, cheesy F/X.... these all contribute to the flawless cohesion of the project, staying true to the campy values of the comics. The casting is brilliant, and all the actors charge into their roles with gusto. Particularly good are Adrienne Barbeau as the most shrewish wife ever seen on screen, E.G. Marshall as a neat-freak billionaire, and Leslie Nielson as a cuckold who takes a little too much enjoyment in his revenge. You'll also see a very young Ed Harris, Hal Holbrook at his schmuck-y best, and a pre-"Cheers" Ted Danson. Stephen King stars in one of the five segments, continuing his modest acting career by playing yet another in a long line of slack-jawed idiots... To say King overacts in this role is an incredible understatement, but his ridiculous character and lousy acting add immeasurably to the aforementioned "camp" factor, much as the comics revelled in their own dark humor and healthy doses of irony.
There's no excuse for not liking "Creepshow". (Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the vastly inferior sequel. Avoid it.) Viewers who find it "silly" or "not scary" have missed the point entirely. Another unique little masterpiece from the brilliant minds of George Romero, Tom Savini and good ol' Stevie King.
