Creepshow | 31 Nights of Horror Challenge

For this year’s 31 Nights of Horror Challenge, the Day 21 prompt was Anthology. There is a bunch of horror anthology series, and I am looking forward to the new Cabinet of Curiosities on Netflix. I also love Tales from the Darkside, Scary Stories, and even Trick r Treat, but none of them are better than O.G. Creepshow (1982), including the bit by Stephen King.

#31NightsofHorror Anthology: Creepshow (1982)


Five tales of terror are presented. The first deals with a demented old man returning from the grave to get the Father’s Day cake his murdering daughter never gave him. The second is about a not-too-bright farmer discovering a meteor that turns everything into plant-life. The third is about a vengeful husband burying his wife and her lover up to their necks on the beach. The fourth is about a creature that resides in a crate under the steps of a college. The final story is about an ultra-rich businessman who gets his comeuppance from cockroaches.

Our Thoughts on Creepshow

If you’re going to watch an older horror movie, you must be prepared for its cheesiness. But that’s what makes it such a great film. Creepshow did an exceptionally good job of taking short horror scenarios and making them very entraining. The acting is first-class, and oddly enough, even with its cheesiness, scenes in the movie might make you cringe in horror.

At the movie’s beginning, when the boy’s father is scolding him for reading the comic, the boy comes back with saying it’s no worse than what’s in the porno magazines his father has. Stephen King got his start writing short horror stories for pornographic magazines.
