Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

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 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best cheesy movies money can buy! Feb. 23 2004
By Zacc
Format:DVD
This movie is great! That is if your into cheesy movies! Alot of people get the wrong impression about this movie, its not scary! Non what so ever, but it is so much fun!
Fathers Day: Fathers Day is about a woman who kills her father on fathers day. The reason why she kills her father is because he is ranting and raving about getting his fathers day cake. so she takes a...I don't know what it is... and smacks him with it. She buries him in her yard and she moves and someone else moves in (it doesn't show this but it basically tells you). Every fathers day she comes back to the spot where she burried him. Now this is where it starts showing. she goes and visits him and he comes to life (the people are awear that the woman is there). she gets killed, and the people in the house are sick of waiting, so each of them go out-side..one by one...and all get killed off...well sorta! just watch it!
The lonesome Death of Jody Verrill: To make a long story short...This one is about a meteor striking and turing some guy, jody verrill (stephen king), into a weed. This one is pretty funny!
Something To Tide You Over: A rich guy strikes revenge on a guy for cheating him out of his money. The guy, and his girlfriend, that he kills comes back to life and they then get revenge on him.
The Crate: Is the longest story of them all. so, as you can tell from the tital of this one its about a crate. and in that crate is some sort of evil monkey/monster thingy. and the other part of this story is about a man that cannot stand his wife (niether can I) and he see's this crate and the animal in it. he tells his wife to come down and help him and the monster gets her! so basically its about a guy that is trying to kill his obnoxious wife!
They're Creeping Up On You: is the story that makes the movie!

4.0 out of 5 stars The Most Fun You'll Ever Have BEING SCARED! Feb. 10 2004
Format:DVD
In this creepy, rollicking eerie horror film based on the macabre 1950's E.C. Comics, the "Masters of Terror", George A. Romero("Night of the Living Dead") and Stephen King(author of "The Shining) bring tons of fun to the proceedings with five shocking yarns of trembling fear!
There's a huge talented cast, great animated segues and inexhaustible camera angles and lighting effects based verily on the comics. The stories might sound a bit heavy-handed, but are all entertaining and eerie.
The first tale is called FATHER'S DAY. This terribly gloomy story has a murdered elderly man emerging from his grave to wreak havoc on his family members while celebrating Father's Day. It's pretty spooky and well acted but not the best story so far.
The second entry is more funny then scary. It's called THE LONESOME DEATH OF JORDY VERRILL. Quite amusingly, Stephen King plays the dimwitted lead character, Jordy, who discovers a meteor in his farm. His stupidity causes the meteor to mysteriously grow weeds everywhere... and shockingly to himself! The story was pretty fun, but wasn't really scary as the other stories. King was great, though.
SOMETHING TO TIDE YOU OVER, the third one, was probably the best acted. A scheming and sinister husband, played by veteran Leslie Nielson, plants two lovers up to their necks in a beach. But he gets the last laugh!! Ha-Ha! Probably the second best story; it had a scary climax.
In my opinion, the fourth story, THE CRATE, was the best. It was also the longest. A janiter uncovers a mysterious crate hidden in a campus basement. What's inside is a creature from hell! The scary feature was the monster. The story was well-acted and crafted. It was also the bloodiest.
The fifth entry, THEY'RE CREEPING UP ON YOU, is the weakest story.

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. Read more
