31 Days of Horror 3: Creepshow

Day 13
Satirical and creepy, Creepshow is one of those horror anthologies that actually works.
The movie is based off of the E.C. comic books of the 1950s. George A. Romero took the directors chair as Stephen King wrote the screenplay and the end result was a movie about radioactive meteorites, an odd Father's Day party, cockroaches and a monster in a crate. It sounds odd, and it is, but trust me when I say it's a good odd.
The movie has performances by Ed Harris, Ted Danson, Adrienne Barbeau, Hal Holbrook, E.G. Marshall and even Leslie Nielsen.
The only bad thing about this movie is that it's uneven in some places. Yet, this is still a great movie that is simple and and scary at the same time.
