The raft story with the teenagers was so scary it stayed in my mind for years after. I don't know what it was about this one short segment of Creepshow 2, but let me say, it was quick, it was brutal, and it was clever. I feel bad saying it, after all, people work hard and spend a lot of budget money to bring us all these modern scares, but this one simple, frightening, story sticks to your mind.

As a sequel to the excellent First Creepshow movie, I expected a lot. I didn't get it. The stories are lame at best. And the cartoon wrap around story is poorly animated, it looks like Ralph Bakshi did it drunk. "Old Chief Woodenhead" is just silly with remarkably bad acting all round. "The Raft" is alrigfht, but there's the out of place sequence when one of the survivors begins to sexually molest the other survivor. "The Hitchhiker" is a silly retelling of two old Twilight Zone episodes, ""The Hitchhiker" and "You Drive", but with more blood and over the top camp. I'd watch this film again if it was on late night TV, but it is pretty forgettable.

Not as good as the first creepshow but the last story "The HitchHiker" seems to belong with the first. If I were to rank the stories best to worst I would rank
1. Hichhiker
2. Chief woodenhead
3. The Raft.
4. The cartoony story between them

Overall worth seeing once I wish they wouldn't have so many stories with this Horror Justice theme it seems like they could of made them more terrifying if the people in the stories didn't deserve their fate, but it was that time period and almost every horror movie had that theme back then.

Were you a fan of the first Creepshow? go for number 2 then. All three vignettes are fairly entertaining, the last one "The Hitchhiker" is the least entertaining. Just because it goes on a little too long But Lois Chiles does a pretty good job. the 1st one, Ol' Chief Woodenhead" is a good builder, Dorothy Lamour and George Kennedy as oldsters who own a store in a dying town. Both do very well and love the way the story progresses. The 2nd one, "The Raft" is good, too, but there had to be the annoying screaming girl somewhere and we put her on the raft. The other 3 actors did a fine job. This is another story that is being told and not a lot of things that happen. Predictable end, though. But Fun anyway. All in all I say it is worth the watch.

The team of Stephen King and George Romero are back with three more hair raising tales. And all three are scary in their own right, more so than the five tales in this movie's predecessor.
"Ol' Chief Woodenhead is about a wooden indian that comes to life in order to exact vengeance for the murders of his kindly shopkeeper owners.
"The Raft" is the best story of the lot. A gelatinous "thing" attacks four helpless teenagers stranded on a raft anchored in a lake in the middle of nowhere. Kind of "Jaws" meets "The Blob" this is insanely creepy and alone makes the video purchase worthwhile. The special effects are great and the fear factor high as you watch the teens gradually realize there is no escape.
"The Hitchhiker" has two things going for it, lots of blood and Stephen King as a potty mouthed truck driver. The constant reappearance of the dead hitchhiker was somewhat confusing and not properly explained, but it's a movie so I'll let it slide. There's a good helping of car-on-pedestrian carnage that's a great way to gross out a squeamish friend.
As in the first movie there are little snippets of animation throughout that are an added treat, this time a venus fly trap gets a tasty and nutritious meal (just ask Jonathan Swift, oh wait, he's dead). Bottom line, if you own the first movie you have to have the sequel, which in my opinion is far scarier than the first movie. So all you little Creeps out there get your copy now!

I liked this movie for many reasons. One, the first one was terrifyingly scary (I was 8 when I first saw it). Two, it was written by horror master Stephen King. The first story, "Old Chief Woodenhead," about a cigar store Indian who avenges the murders of his kindly shop owners, was creepy enough. Only really scary if you are easily creeped out or if you watch it at night with the lights off. The second story, "The Raft," about four college students who go to a secluded lake and unwittingly become sitting ducks to a carnivorous oil slick-like blob was particularly scary. My second favorite out of the three stories in the movie. The last of the three and by far the simplist and most scariest was "The Hitchkiker." About a cheating wife driving home from a rendevous with her lover and runs down some poor guy. She flees the scene only to be haunted by his undead spirit. Makeup effects by master Tom Savini were awesome. The complaints I have about the movie are minor ones. Why were there only three stories instead of five like in the first one? Also, what was up with the animated wraparound story? Yes, the first
"Creepshow" featured animated in-betweens before and after each story, but it did not have any cartoonish interaction between characters in its prologue or epilogue. Also the score wasn't nearly as scary as it was in the first movie. The fillmmakers should have tried to get the same composer to return as well as director George A. Romero. The DVD doesn't have that many special features on it. The trailer and a behind-the-scenes photo gallery montage are about it. I would have liked to at least have a commentary by the director if not a couple of the cast members. Last but not least, when will there be a "Creepshow 3"? It's never too late for another sequel. Hello, Hollywood is sequel-crazy these days. Now is the time to strike. Overall, a decent pick if you're looking for a fright ride.
