Halloween Horrors One: Creepshow

 Creepshow (1982)
While there had been two films based on the old EC comics produced by Amicus, this was the first film to really capture the spirit of those 1950s terror tales. While the stories were originals by Stephen King, and not based on particular stories from the comics, this film was almost a dry run for HBO's popular Tales From The Crypt. It was also a refreshing break from the slasher films that dominated the era.

We also got one of the coolest movie tie-ins ever, an EC style comic written by King, illustrated by the great Berni Wrightson, and with a cover by EC's Jack Kamen!

  1. I find nothing of Christian value in your horrible posts. Especially the small child depicted in the lower photo. Poor, innocent children shown only for pedophiles. His small, soft body in his little PJs with that evil Satanic grin just begging to be humped by a gaggle of imps. You know what you are proselytizing and you should be ashamed. And notice lastly, his tight grip on the rolled comic, first YOU DO NOT HANDLE COMICS THIS WAY - BAD BOY NEED SPANKING - SECOND, we all know it's a phallic symbol meant only to tantalize those of ummmm, you, ergh...NM...I have to take a shower, I've completely lost my train of thought.....(are laptops waterproof?).

    Thought your lonely blog like so many i've started over the years needed a comment. And I thought that would be perfect. Damn. Just noticed on the front cover, the ghoul is grabbing the boy's crotch. LOL. Dedicated to all you horror, schlock, and downright perverted content loyalists!! Power To The People Not The Steeple.
