    I find this to be a great Stephen King film, paying tribute to (one of) Stephen's inspirations, 1950s comic books, Tales from the Crypt, the most obvious being payed tribute to. I enjoyed those 'animated' comic transition and comic-scenes, featured very prominently, and the acting is great! Casting Leslie Nielsen (Naked Gun, anyone?), Tom Savini, and even Steve and Joe King!

    The soundtrack is alright too, but aside from these, I enjoy the whole film for its uniqueness. Go ahead. Name any movie ever released that had those classic comic book effects and stories! (See what I mean?)

    Stephen King blurting out 'Meteor sh!t!' Is one or my favorite movie lines in history.

    A close second is 'Honey, that ATM machine called me an *******!'...courtesy of Maximum Overdrive, of course.

    My favorite part of the movie was the cockroach segment, don't remember the title but it was so infamously lauded in my house as a surefire way to make my mother sick. So that's why we kids loved it :dbl:

    The cockroaches creeped me out completely. I'm unreasonably horrified by them anyway, so I spent that section of the movie with my feet on the theatre seat--lol. All of the segments had their own charm :)

    By far SK as Jordy Verrill is the best segment to me. The other great line that gets me every time is "Jordy Verrill you Lunkhead!

    Creepshow is the best damn movie ever filmed. Forever warped my brain, for which I am forever grateful. Hard to pick a favorite segment, the whole thing fits so well together. Guess I gotta go with Adrienne Barbeau, 'just call me Billie, everyone does' The Crate.

    Creepshow 2 ain't bad, thanx fer the ride. Creepshow 3 doesn't exist and don't try to convince me otherwise.

    I do love the bit parts and Steve's performance as Jordy. I look forward to his cameos and miss him when he's not there. Such a funny man.

    I can't pick a favorite because this whole film is really good. The special effects in this film are amazing. Back in the day there were other films that could give it a run for it's money, but not today. I despise digital special effects.

    Definitely one of Kings best.

    I love Creepshow...and its a great collaboration between 2 horror masters in Stephen King and George A. Romero....I love the "Something to tide you Over" segement as it combines to horrible ways to die...either by been buried alive or being drowned...and this combines the two!! I love when Leslie Nielson says "Gotta hold your breath"...and at the end "I can hold my breath for a very long time!!"
    I also love Stephen King as Jordy Verrill...he plays the part excellently..."Meteor ****!!!" and "Jordy Verrill You Lungkhead"
    I enjoyed the Billy segments, played by Joe King, and thought the voodoo doll scene at the end is quite good, as he gets his revenge on his father who threw out his creepshow magazine
