Better than I remembered, but still miles away from the near-perfection of the original.

Fun horror anthology. A little on the cheap, but I actually kind of like this one more than the original. Thanks for the ride lady!

To be fair, you have to look at Creepshow 2 in context. What it is is an entry intro a film series that was expected to continue with more films like it. If that's the case, then some of the films are probably not going to be as good as you'd hoped they would be. Such is the case with this sequel, which didn't really have a proper follow-up (Tales from the Darkside: The Movie is considered the real Creepshow 3, and not the cheap Part III made much later on). On its own, it's a mediocre affair, with mediocre stories. None are truly effective, but they are interesting. Like Tales from the Crypt, there were interesting episodes and some not so interesting. It's a watchable movie, don't get me wrong, but it's certainly not as playful or fun as the original film.

The horror continues (well actually it doesn't) in Creepshow 2, the second anthology by George A. Romero and Stephen King. The film features three tales of terror, including a wooden Indian statue that comes to life, a mysterious slick that stalks a group of swimmers, and a hitchhiker who won't die, that are tied together by an animated sequence. The acting is really poor, as is the directing. Also, the makeup effects look extremely cheap, and so do the sets and costumes. Not nearly as frightening as the original, Creepshow 2 isn't able to deliver that many scares.

Worth it alone for the lake short, which is one of the greatest horror shorts ever. The others are okay but that one is amazing.

Una antologia de terror adorable por un lado y terrorífica por el otro. Aunque no llega a superar a su antecesora lo cierto es que algunas de las historias son bastante interesantes, como por ejemplo la de la balsa.

Una lástima que otras, interesantes en su propuesta, no lo sean tanto en la ejecución (sí, hablo de la del jefe indio,...)

Sin embargo, es todo un clásico del terror ochentero.

Just watch "the blob" segment, which is far better than "the Shallows." Forget the rest.

Though the first and final stories have their charms, what really saves this mediocre sequel is 'The Raft'; the brutal and terrifying middle story that acts as a miniature version of The Blob.

The sequel to the famous "Creepshow" (1982) ain't as good as the first film, but still is worth a small while because Romero, King and Savini are still in this one. It has the same cartoon animation, like the first one, but this time only comprises of three tales of terror. And there's more realistic gore then the previous one. My favorite of all is the first short story, it's good, but the two other ones are just mediocre and are why this movie didn't live up to the expectations of the first movie. See it if you liked the first movie !!

One of the worst horror sequels ever made. A bland, boring, cheap version of it's superior predecessor. Half star because the last story was okay. Skip otherwise.

More ridiculous tales in this unnecessary sequel.

While this isn't quite as good as the first entry, I still found it to be entertaining. Nothing overly scary, but is good creepy fun. A good series to keep in mind when Halloween comes around.

Time filler. With some ok effects.

Roughly equal to the first, though I'd say this one is more suspenseful, but only by a little.

Another great classic from Stephen King.

The sequel is never as good as the original. But that doesn't mean there's some creepy thrills and nasty fun to be had here. This time, George A. Romero, the director of the original, hands the reigns over to the first film's cinematographer, Michael Gornick. But Romero stays on board to contribute the screenplay, based, once again, on short tales of terror from the one and only Stephen King. Regrettably, there's only 3 stories here, but there are more than enough scares to make up for it. First, in "Old Chief Woodn'head," vengeance comes from an unlikely source. In the second, my favorite one here, "The Raft," four college kids decide to go swimming at an isolated lake. But they soon discover they're not alone. There's something in the water, and it wants them. Finally, "The Hitchhiker," (no relation to the HBO anthology series of the same name), where a hit and run driver is driven to madness when her terrible act comes back to haunt her. Overall, not as good as the original, but definitely worth checking out. Oh, and thanks for the ride, Michael Gornick!

The creepiest thing about this movie is the terrible animation. There is some fun here, but really it's not scary enough or funny enough.

Not an extremely satisfying fallow-up, but i've seen worse! C
