I wrote a review of it on my blog; it includes a fairly extensive plot summary, so check that out if you've a mind to.
i don't know, burnette...a bus driven by an orangutan ???
that wouldn't be much different than alot of the bus rides i've taken...especially some of those school bus drivers...i still ache, and that was eons ago :wink2:
As a true friend and fan to Stephen King I must be honest. I can hardly fathom that Stephen King, George Romero, and Laurel Productions could make a Creepshow film without any due credit to the original Amazing Stories and Tales of the Crypt comics. Not one thanks or inspired by. Very unlike Stephen King. In the original film there is no narration only a nice cartoon of a Crypt Keeper like figure but, again without any credit. C2 had the Crypter, not the Crypt Keeper, and although I enjoyed both films, esdpecially the first, you see the results of not standing by your principles. No worries though Mr King, I still love you, like a big brother, of course.
Nobody is perfect. I bet George A Romero, Stephen King, and the whole Creepshow crew were having so much fun making the film that it was just an honest oversight. You can see in the artistic spirit of Creepshow with the Tales From the Crypt Keeper was also having fun resulting in a cult classic. By the way, I too ask...WHERE IS MY FATHERS DAY CAKE!
i don't think there was an oversight: all the press of the day had all of them waxing poetic all over the place...
however...there were/are copywrite issues...
and to do too much runs the chance that some legal baboon will take them and their meager, paltry budget...or worse, that big-time author, to the cleaners
two words george harrison - - - my, sweet lord ! but there's $$ in lawsuits
Sequels can be great, just not as fantastic as the first, they never are. But to do a sequel without the King......a waste.
I've not seen Creepshow III... :(
It's godawful. Don't watch it. Do something better with your time.
