Classic movie review: Creepshow

One of the most beloved horror anthologies from the 80s, Creepshow is a tour de force by three celebrated masters of the horror genre.

I first watched Creepshow on late night TV in 1991, on a school night, and my takeaway from it was: OMG, I feel so much better about the world already! This is classic storytelling of the nasty getting what they deserve at its best. Or should I say, at its darkest. It gleefully tickles our innate fascination with elaborate revenge schemes. You’d feel the same about it after watching, albeit with a slight hangover of indulgence guilt.

As for favourite segment, I pick No. 4, The Crate. I choose this over Father’s Day, a straightforward tale written by Stephen King for the movie, and The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill, in which King himself delivers an unforgettable portrayal of a hillbilly, because The Crate best encapsulates the talents of the three big names behind this anthology. Romero’s signature satirical touch is unmistakable in this nasty little story. Brought to horrific life by King’s delightful plotting and Savini’s playful effects. The questions you’d ask yourself after watching this segment are, do you wanna a crate? Or are you a crate to someone else? Disturbing questions, yes? But be assured that you wouldn’t be losing any sleep. You would actually fall asleep while grinning. The story was told to you in such a wickedly fun way.
