“The most high profile of all horror anthology films, this Stephen King / George Romero creation is a lot of fun. Taking its inspiration from classic E.C. Comics, the suburban framework is what really makes “Creepshow” great. When a kid’s dad throws out the trashy comics that the kid loves so dearly, he cooks up some wicked revenge. There are many good stories here, but the one about cockroaches gave me nightmares when I was little and still creeps me out. This also has King’s largest acting role ever as the hick who becomes a plant. Good stuff.” (The Scarecrow Video Movie Guide)
