CREEPSHOW, the new anthology series based on the 1982 horror comedy classic, is still the most fun you’ll ever have being scared! A comic book comes to life in a series of twelve vignettes over six episodes, exploring terrors from murder to the supernatural and unexplainable. Haunted dollhouses, werewolves, murderous goblins, villainous trick-or-treaters, the dead, and medical marvels are just a few of the things to watch out for in this new series. You never know what will be on the next page...
1. Gray Matter / The House of the Head
After the death of a loved one, a drinking habit becomes insatiable. Then, dolls are Evie’s favorite companions, but when a severed toy head appears in her dollhouse, Evie can no longer protect them.
2. Bad Wolf Down / The Finger
A platoon of American soldiers finds something more sinister than war behind enemy lines. Then, a man with a passion for found objects finds something particularly odd: a finger… and it’s growing.
3. All Hallows Eve / The Man in the Suitcase
Teens go trick-or-treating, but they aren’t met with smiles and sweets... Then, Justin brings home the wrong suitcase, and finds a man who spits out gold coins when he is in pain stuffed inside.
4. The Companion / Lydia Layne's Better Half
Harry stumbles upon an old scarecrow and brings it to life. Then, Lydia kills her lover and needs to hide the evidence... but after an earthquake, she gets trapped inside an elevator with the body.
5. Night of the Paw / Times is Tough in Musky Holler
A killer gets stranded in a funeral home with a mortician and his monkey paw. Then, former Mayor Barkley is in prison, and with his most loyal supporters locked up too, his odds don't look good.
6. Skincrawlers / By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain
Dr. Sloan discovers a cure to weight loss in a rare fat-sucking leech. Then, Rose believes she found Champ, the legendary monster of Lake Champlain, but the real monster may still be out there...
Soooooooo fantastic! The only one I didn't care for was the very last one about the Lake Champlain monster - it felt more like short-story material, like the actual monster was supposed to be a metaphor and not a visual story, idk. But the rest were SO amazing, with great cameos. I could break down each one, but just watch for yourself. Don't think I could pick a favorite...but the dollhouse one is tense as hell, the one with Tobin Bell is legit gross and loads of fun, and I could go on and on! As a reviewer below me said: "I'm so happy!!!!" and that about sums it up :)
Creepshow!!! I've always loved it and I always will. These new stories are very entertaining. I'm so happy!!!!
Excellent. There are some bad segments here (The Finger, By the Silver Water, All Hallows Eve, and the Companion are particularly bad) - but there are some genuinely amazing moments here too (House of the Head, Skincrawlers, and Lydia Lane's Better Half.) Definitely worth the watch!
A mixed bag, but there are definitely more goodies than baddies.
