In the early 1980s, some of the most notable horror personas joined forces to create Creepshow (1982). George A. Romero directed it, Stephen King wrote it, and Richard P. Rubinstein (producer of Romero’s Martin (1978), Knightriders (1981), and Day of the Dead (1985), and of King’s Pet Sematary (1989), The Stand (1994), The Langoliers (1995), Thinner (1996) and The Night Flier (1997)) were the architects of the anthology that was starred by Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Fritz Weaver, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson and E. G. Marshall, as well as Stephen King himself, were some of the stars appearing in the movie. So wide was the success that it had a follow-up Creepshow 2 (1987). A third installment, Creepshow III (2006) also saw the light in this new century, but the result and the success were minimal due to its low quality.
In a time of revivals, it is not a surprise that The Creep, the popular master of ceremonies introducing every story, would eventually return. The premise is the same as it was decades ago, a young boy’s horror comic book comes to life in this anthology series of terrifying tales. And The Creep tells audience members darkly grim horror stories from the pages of the Creepshow comic book.
