Critic Reviews for Creepshow III
If you don't like the current story, wait for a bit, and a new one will start.
Why the hell would you buy the rights to an established franchise when you never even PLANNED to make a good movie? It's like buying a classic car just so you can plow it into a brick wall.
A movie so awful that not only do we wonder how the filmmakers could have possibly afforded to lease the Creepshow brand, but how they possibly could have found distribution.
Of zero interest to true horror movie fans, and certainly will bore those looking for quality cinema. It will, however, provide a giggle or two to bad movie aficionados.
Audience Reviews for Creepshow III
A change of pace with this latest sequel, no connection to the previous two films with Romero or King but the whole film takes the Tarantino route with intertwining stories that mix and collide with each other as the different stories progress. To be honest the film is pretty good despite reviews that I have read, the stories are dark and bloody but not that original yet they still hook you and keep the atmosphere nice and spooky.
The short stories are quite good but they kick off with a weak offering about a bratty girl mutating into her true form every time the TV remote is used. Doesn't make much sense and isn't that interesting yet it does have some nice makeup effects. After this all the other stories are mixed in together and we see characters from each segment showing up in other stories.
There is a murderous prostitute on the rampage, a vampire killing people, a man who buys a radio that can speak to him and help him make money, two college guys who think a professor has built the perfect woman and a cruel miserable doctor who gets his comeuppance.
The way the stories all merge is really well done and you get lots of little plot tit bits from each part that explain other questions from other parts...plus some references to the previous two Creepshow films. I was expecting a real cheap looking flick but instead this is actually quite decent and well worth the honour of being Creepshow 3.
OK, I was not expecting it to be the best film ever but this film is easily the worst film ever made! The makers totally missed the point of the Creepshow franchise and just used the name to boost sales. Damn it, it worked on me! This is punishment for being a completist. The worst thing of all, apart from the acting, direction, storeys and just about everything, is the fact that Ana Clavell and James Glenn Dudelson think they have made a really clever film! Glutton for punishment, I watched the making of and was more shocked and horrified than I was watching the main feature! As if making Day of the dead 2 wasn't bad enough! Talentless idiots! Avoid this waste of time film at all costs, especially if you?re a fan of the first Creepshow movies. I feel compelled to add an extra star to all the other films I?ve rated so far, as this is without a doubt the worst film in the history of cinema! I can't believe I?ve written so much about it!More
A straight to video/DVD instalment of Creepshow without any of the previous talents involved in the original 2 films.
But don't let that predefine your view on this, lest we not forget how many of our genres greatest talents have turned in substandard junk as recent episodes of Masters Of Horror. Before judging this on names alone.
If viewers take Creepshow 3 with an 'as it comes' approach, they'll find a fun 80's feeling horror anthology which isn't a bad thing as that was comic horrors heyday with films like Blood Diner and Street Trash seemingly coming out weekly.
Like all horror anthology's some story's work better than others. I liked how characters from previous story's turn up again. If you put these poor plots aside then there's gore and gags a plenty in this.
The sets are classy and the acting though not really Oscar worthy isn't so bad. Gore and visual FX are a touch tacky but done with its heart in the right place, the cgi I didn't like but was nice to see good old prosthetic effects used among them.
Gets a chees-a-tastic 5 out of 10 from me, I know most previous comments say its the worst turkey ever, but these people haven't seen the worst of troma or a Todd Sheets movie. Suitable to fans of trashy 80's horror and anyone looking for a no brainer and respects good old fashioned cheap thrills.
