Buried alive the most memorable of all
Billy is punished for reading comic horror Creepshow. The Creep invites him to five tales. In Father’s Day, the old patriarch Nathan Grantham was killed by his daughter Bedelia. During a family gathering, Nathan is resurrected and takes revenge while getting the cake. In ‘The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill’, Jordy Verrill (Stephen King) is a dimwit farmer who finds a meteorite and is soon overcome with extraterrestrial plant life. In ‘Something to Tide You Over’, wealthy Richard Vickers (Leslie Nielsen) takes revenge on his wife and her lover Harry Wentworth (Ted Danson) by burying them up to their necks in the beach. In ‘The Crate’, college professor Henry Northup (Hal Holbrook) is informed of a deadly creature inside of a crate and he sees an easy way to get rid of his hateful wife Wilma (Adrienne Barbeau). In ‘They’re Creeping Up on You’, ruthless business Upson Pratt (E. G. Marshall) has sealed himself up in his high tech apartment due to his germophobia. There is a blackout and his apartment is overrun by cockroaches.
The first two tales are forgettable. The third one burying alive Ted Danson is not. It is the most compelling tale in the whole movie. It works on every level from the acting to the writing. The fourth one has a couple of interesting actors and the last one is creepy as hell. I’m not that afraid of bugs but people who do would really get unhinged over that one. The wrap-around story with Billy could probably be better. I’m sure they could have found a better actor than Stephen King’s son. Teaming up horror icons like George A. Romero and Stephen King doesn’t guarantee anything but this one worked out great.
One of the best anathology horror films ever!
Here’s to writers, George Romero and Stephen King, producer, Richard Rubenstein and a talented cast for collaborating on this 1980’s classic illumination of the popularly demented comic books of the 1950’s inspired by the weird works of H.P. Lovecraft and bringing it to colorful life. This features five stories. “Fathers Day”, your typical “vengeance from the grave” tale, “The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill” in which Stephen King himself is turned into a mutated plant after a meteorite crashes on his farm, “Something To Tide You Over” with Leslie Neilson involved in a twisted revenge scheme that comes back to haunt him, “The Crate” has a prehistoric creature and a plan to get rid of a bitchy wife, and last but not least a million cockroaches terrorize a heartless businessman in “They’re Creeping Up On You”.
This combines excellent performances from a versatile group of genre actors with a brilliant use of color and dynamics to bring the campy and gory feel of the horror comics alive. The great cast includes, Adrienne Barbeau, Fritz Weaver, Ted Danson, Ed Harris, E.G. Marshall, Hal Holbrook, Tom Atkins, Viveca Lindfors and more. The stories are told with a witty and coherent script and lively pace, a perfectly fitting electronic musical score and a great wrap-around story brings it to a satisfying close. Tom Savini’s talents go into the creature FX, and he has a cameo at the end… and hooray for scenes of this being filmed in my home town of Monroeville!! Enjoy!
