On Blu-ray: “Creepshow”

I was really young when Creepshow came out back in 1982 but I had an older brother who let me sneak into his room and watch scary movies with him.  I think that’s what led to my deep love for horror flicks. creepshow blu-ray

This classic, which was directed by George A. Romero and written by Stephen King, is now available on Blu-ray and I’m sure a lot of people are going to grab a copy.  I’m beefing up my own library for my planned Halloween horror marathon so, if you’re planning to spend that last weekend in October similarly, this might be a great movie to have.

The film is made up of five short stories fashioned after those classic horror comics from the 1950s. 

  • There’s an unexpected guest for Father’s Day after a man emerges from the grave looking for cake.
  • King makes an appearance in the yarn about a meteor that crashes into a field and makes everything grow.
  • A professor realizes that a crate delivered to his school actually contains a ruthless creature so he decides to introduce it to his wife.
  • Need an incentive to not cheat on your spouse.  Watch this short story about a pair of lovers who get neck deep in trouble when one husband plots his revenge.
  • In what I think is a poke at Howard Hughes, a millionaire who is afraid of contamination has to deal with the nastiest creatures of all.

You’ll recognize a lot of actors in their more youthful days including Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson and Ed Harris.  If you watch this and enjoy it, check out the 1987 sequel Creepshow 2 which I thought was actually even better than the original.
