As much as I love and admire Romero's zombie pictures... I may love Creepshow just a little bit more.

One of the rare horror anthologies with a sharp sense of storytelling and an intrinsic ability for irony and metaphor...

Genuinely creepy, satirical and occasionally daft horror tales with a distinctly moral bent.

George Romero, collaborating with writer Stephen King, again proves his adeptness at combining thrills with tongue-in-cheek humor.

All of the pieces of Creepshow come together in a smorgasbord of ghastly images, welcome humor, and solid, old-fashioned storytelling.

The segments are consistent in quality and the film is still effective and entertaining.

This horror omnibus tickles the funny bone while stripping it of its flesh, so that hysterical laughter comes as fast as the frights and as thick as the blood.

This five-part film, based on the format of 50s horror comics, marks one of the few times George Romero has directed someone else's script (it's by Stephen King), and the results are only mildly interesting by the standards of his Dead trilogy.

he old Amicus movies used EC originals to better effect and with more brevity, for all their cardboard sets.

A wickedly funny horror anthology. Creepshow is a devilish delight, and the most entertaining film George Romero ever directed.

Romero and King have approached this movie with humor and affection, as well as with an appreciation of the macabre.

Colorful, amusing, and awfully simple - just like a comic book.

Horror film purists may object to the levity even though failed, as a lot of it is.
