I LOVE Creepshow! It makes me giggle...But it's so good.
I have yet to see Creepshow 2 but sounds like I should get on that sometime soon

Good looking out! It's always tempting to give it the benefit of the doubt, but I think I'll give it a miss then

'Quirky' is a good word for this movie, which is one of the reasons why I like it.

I just recently ran across that title while browsing on-line. I wondered if it was any good.

I have fond memories of the first two, though. I was fairly young when the first one came out, and, living only a few minutes away from Lake Michigan, was genuinely creeped out by the Leslie Nielson story in particular.

It's too bad if the third one is as bad as you say. I was hoping that someone had actually gone to the trouble to use some more of King's short stories...could've been a successful franchise.

There are so many cool stories in Skeleton Crew in particular, I had hoped to see a few more of those make it to the screen.

It's a classic. You just saw it for the first time? I'm sure it seems quirky in the year 2007 when the film came out in 1982. Time is a factor with movies, but you should finish the rest of the movie and check out the second one. Fun films.

It was far too quirky for me to consider it straight up horror, but it had something about it that made me really enjoy it. Who knows.

You guys' thoughts on the film? And is Creepshow 2 worth checking out?
It's pretty cool, but I think it's overrated, it's really not all it's cut up to be.

As well you should be. Not only does he hit it outta the park with the rest of the segments, but "They're Creeping Up On You" is an incredible 25 or so minutes of showmanship from George. I rank Creepshow just behind the Dead trilogy and Martin as for as Romero's shit is concerned.
