Creepshow is the first of the Stephen King anthology movies. Directed by George Romero, this collects four King short stories from the Night Shift era and tells them within the format of one of the EC horror comics of the 50s. The stories are all very much that kind of thing - short, pithy, punchy, and with tongue very much in cheek. The comic framework extends to the bookend sequences for each episode, which is animated. King, who so often cameos in filmed adaptations of his work, is here given the central role in one of the segments, and does a decent job as the gormless and ill-fated Jordy Verill. This is a decent set of stories and an entertaining, if unexceptional, movie.
