Stephen King has undoubtedly earned his reputation as a modern-day master of horror — why, then, does he fare so poorly when it comes to adaptations of his work for the big screen? For every SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, there’s a dozen LAWNMOWER MEN. There exist a handful of films, though, that are not only great adaptations — they’re great films period.

CREEPSHOW, a collaboration with NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD director George A. Romero, is one of those films. CREEPSHOW is a hallmark of the horror anthology sub-genre and a precursor to one of the best television shows of the ‘80s — Tales from the Darkside. 

The film pays tribute to the classic EC horror comics of the ‘50s — right down to the bright color palate and innovative framing and editing effects. Made up of five segments, the movie stars Tom Atkins, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau and Stephen King himself. Whether you’re a fan of zombies, monsters, revenge plots or being eaten alive by insects, CREEPSHOW has the flavor of horror you desire.
