Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: This horror omnibus tickles the funny bone while stripping it of its flesh, so that hysterical laughter comes as fast as the frights and as thick as the blood.

- Anton Bitel, Film4, Friday, July 16, 2010

Fresh: A wickedly funny horror anthology. Creepshow is a devilish delight, and the most entertaining film George Romero ever directed.

- Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: This five-part film, based on the format of 50s horror comics, marks one of the few times George Romero has directed someone else's script (it's by Stephen King), and the results are only mildly interesting by the standards of his Dead trilogy.

Classic short horror stories from Stephen King and George A.Romero!

After seeing Creepshow for the first time in many years, I almost forgot how good it is. George Romero's direction exaggerated with saturated color and faithfulness to horror comics is like a Mario Bava movie with ads for X-ray glasses. The performances are fun and the stories are enjoyable as the whole thing borders on camp.

Creepshow isnt exactly a Horror Movie. I had a feeling it was a spoof.
