Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 05/26/1982
"...The film is top of its class....CREEPSHOW feels like a real labor of love and Romero produces more genuine startling effects than anyone in recent years..."
New York Times - 11/10/1982
"...The best things about CREEPSHOW are its carefully simulated comic-book tackiness and the gusto with which good actors assume silly positions..."

Plot Synopsis:

CREEPSHOW presents five tales of horror, gore, and morbid humor, written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero. The film's style is a tribute to E.C. Comics, the campy horror comic books of the 1950s. Beware of (or watch for) a scene featuring hundreds of cockroaches...
