Creepshow (1982) Review:

Creepshow is the early ancestor of V/H/S, ABCs of Death and other horror compilations of short terror stories. Written by Stephen King and directed by George Romero, one can only have high hope for such a film. The result, without being outstanding, is almost as good as one could have expected.

The film is made of five pairs of shorts compiled around a backbone story. The first two stories, as well as the last one, are fun to watch but nothing memorable. They would be creepy enough to keep hardcore horror fans interested, but mostly concentrate on being funny, and therefore ends up being a little dumb sometimes (except maybe from the exceptional finish of the first short).

The third story is about a crazy dude burying people in the sand in order to have them drowned with the rising tide. A really clever psychological tale worthy of the best Stephen King story, it is by far the best short of the movie.

The fourth one, a monster story with a twist, is the longest of all five. Despite being quite a basic story, this one is really fun to watch, mainly because of the awesome-looking monster in it.

Overall the stories are very diverse and the level of entertainment is good. The movie is overall not really scary, but some good fun to be had!
