Product Description

THREE TALES OF HORROR: A HIT AND RUN DRIVER IN THE HITCHHIKER A WOODEN INDIAN ON THE WARPATH IN OL' CHIEF WOODENHEAD & FOUR FRIENDS WHOSE VACATION ON A SECLUDED LAKE TURNS INTO ANIGHTMARE IN THE RAFT. FEATURES: WIDESCREEN, THEATRICAL TRAILER, PHOTO GALLERY.

Amazon.com

What is it about hitchhikers that makes them such a sure-fire bet for horror? This question is addressed in the final segment of Creepshow 2, another Stephen King-George Romero collaboration. "The Hitchhiker" is the simplest and best of the three tales on display here, with Lois Chiles as a cheating wife who just can't seem to get rid of a hitchhiker... no matter how hard she tries. The collection gets off to a slow start with "Old Chief Wood'n Head," a sleepy story of Native American justice. "The Raft" is a passable teens-in-peril number, but it worked better on the page than on screen. Romero adapted the King stories but emphatically did not direct, which accounts for the drop-off from the kicky fun of the first Creepshow. King appears as a dimwitted truck driver--a foreshadowing of Maximum Overdrive? In any case, this one's for diehard fans only. --Robert Horton

5.0 out of 5 stars The Raft January 1, 2006
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Three Effective and Scary Horror Tales October 3, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
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!

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as the first one in a bad way July 11, 2001
Format:VHS Tape
Creepshow 2 isn't so glamorous as its predecessor, but in many ways that works in its favor. Gone is the lightshow and comics-inspired camera work. All that is left are 3 nifty Stephen King stories and some serviceable actors to bring them to life (with the exception of George Kennedy who does a wonderful job as a storekeep who is murdered by thugs and avenged by a wooden Indian). The wooden Indian tale that starts this movie comic book probably sums up all the themes that EC comics tried to beat us over the head with: If you are bad, bad things will happen to you. Hence, thugs kill sweet storekeep, wooden Indian gores thugs. They only got what was coming to them. Story Two, "The Raft" is all-out cool. Kids smoke pot and swim to a raft (in an off-limits lake), and blob of gook on lake eats kids one by one until all that is left is the Camaro the kids drove up in. "The Raft" is giddy fun. Genuinely creepy. But wait, there's "The Hitchhiker." Lois Chiles plays an adulteress driving home from a fling when she kills a hitch hiker and then drives off. Of course, hitch hiker won't let her get away with that and so what follows is the scariest and most off beat segment in the movie. I mean, this guy can't be killed, but Lois Chiles certainly gives it all she's got. In the end, though - good triumphs and Lois gets hers. And it's all great fun. Not so flashy as Creepshow one, but this sequel is worthy.

Format:DVD
I was a little disappointed in this sequel to the first Creepshow movie. In the first movie, there was around five segments, while here we only get three. If it were three really great stories, I could let it slide, but that's not the case. The first story, titled Old Chief Woodenhead, stars George Kennedy as an owner of a general store in a town that has seen better days. His wife thinks it's time to close the store and retire, but George feels a sort of obligation to the town that's supported him and his family over the years, and feels he needs to give a little back. The title of the story refers to a wooden Indian in front of the store, which comes to life and exacts revenge on the gang of punks after they rob and kill George and his wife. Pretty standard stuff, not really scary, and no real surprises.

The next story is called The Raft and is easily the best of the three. It's about four high school kids that go swimming in a lake with a raft. The swimming season is over, but the raft hasn't been removed from the lake, so they are getting in one last swim. While on the raft, they encounter a strange, gooey blob like mass floating in the water. They also discover the hard way that it has an appetite. There are some fairly gory scenes in this short, along with some nudity. The ending is quite good, and almost make up for the lameness of the other two stories.

The third story is the weakest of the bunch. The HitchHiker involves a woman driving home from an extramarital affair, and she accidentally hits and kills a hitchhiker. She has a moment of indecision, but then flees the scene.
