"Two macabre masters - writer Stephen King and director George A. Romero - conjure up five shocking hards, each a virtuoso exercise in the ghouls-and-gags style of classic '50s horror comics. A murdered man emerges from the grave for Father's Day cake. A meteor's ooze makes everything ... grow. A professor selects his wife as a snack for a crated creature. A scheming husband plants two lovers up to their necks in terror. A malevolent millionaire with an insect phobia becomes the prey of a cockroach army. Add the spirited performances of a fine cast (Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Dansen, E.G. Marshall and King himself) and the ghoulish makeup wizardry of Tom Savini. Let the Creepshow begin!"--Container.

Unlike what aaa5756 has said, this movie is not just "okay". It is one of the greatest Horror films ever made for all time!!! It is a solid gold classic! One does not simply just say that this is "okay" unless they are not a Horror fan to begin with. Do not listen to aaa5756. He/she doesn't know what they're talking about. The fact that he/she fast forwarded through this movie shows that they don't care about Horror to begin with. This is how classic Horror is done. The movie isn't scary, at least to me, but then again, it did come out in 1982, but that does not mean that it's not an amazing movie. What makes a movie fantastic is when it stands the test of time, which in my opinion, this movie will never, ever, ever go out of style. The movie is mixed with animation, which is appropriate, given that it is based on the Horror comics of the 1950's. This movie also has an outstanding cast, an eerie soundtrack, and great stories! And by the way, I've watched Horror movies all my life for over 37 years, so unlike the other reviewer, I actually can speak from experience in watching Horror films.

It was O.K for a home TV movie. I was entertained and interesting. But it was NOT worth the long library wait or the price to rent from a Red Box. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.
