Product Description


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

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.

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.

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.
