Product Description

Creepshow 3 (DVD)


Creepshow 3 revives the venerable horror anthology feature with a quintet of grisly stories aimed at the splatter audience and those who recall the original film (which was helmed by George Romero and written by Stephen King) and its sequel with fondness. Unfortunately, neither Romero nor King are involved with this film, which was written and directed by low-budget filmmakers Anna Clavell and James Glenn Dudelson, whose previous efforts include an in-name-only sequel of Romero's Day of the Dead. Clavell and Dudelson have also jettisoned any connection to '50s horror comics like Tales from the Crypt (which lent the original Creepshow much of its ghoulish style and verve), though there are a few odd moments of CGI animation that serve as framing devices. The stories are suitably bloody--a serial-killer prostitute meets a client with a horrible secret in "Call Girl"; a pair of students takes a hands-on approach to discovering whether their former professor's new bride is human or mechanical in "The Professor's Wife"; and a new TV remote wreaks havoc on the mind and body of a bratty schoolgirl in "Alice"--but lack any sense of suspense or, in several cases, coherence (the black humor of the '50s comics is sorely missed too). And with no real name actors on hand (save Eileen Dietz, the face of Pazuzu from The Exorcist), flat, unimpressive direction, and hit-and-miss special effects, it's difficult to imagine horror fans flocking to Creepshow 3 like they did to its predecessors. -- Paul Gaita

Why? Why do I keep doing this to myself? Why do I buy movies before looking up reviews online?

I saw this in the store and said, "Oh, Creepshow 3? I loved the first one and the second one was alright, I'll pick it up."

Big mistake. BIG MISTAKE.

This film is atrocious. The acting is horrid and the stories are nonsensical. Being the masochist that I am, I actually sat through the whole thing. I almost turned it off when the story started with the doctor who was haunted by the street vagrant because he gave him, wait for it, a bad hot dog(I wish I was making this up). Luckily that was the final story of this abomination.

To all those out there even thinking about buying this because you liked the first two films, DO NOT BUY IT.

When I heard this was gonna be bad I didn't assume it was going to be terrible. 100% untrue to the originals. Most of the stories just become corny. Like the other review says they just don't explain anything. To me these stories seem like the 90s versions of the Twilight Zones. And the whole blending the stories together doesn't work at all. Shows that tarentino actually has some talent when you see it done so bad.

So heres the worst news. You HAVE to see this movie. its that bad. You just can't believe it until you see it. I don't know what else to say. if nothing else I got some laughs out of the movie. But a horror movie this is not.

Enjoy guys

5 tales the overlap characters and places but really not any true central theme was probably done to be able to use the same actors and locations to save some money. This is not horror, this is basic cable television movie horror. I have seen every movie anthology and probably watched every episode of Tales From the Crypt, Alfred Hitchcock, The Hitcher, Chiller, etc. so I think I know what works and what does not. I can deal with low budget stuff, I mean I still enjoy the original Outer Limits and Lost in Space, so the bad special effects didn't bother me. The acting is terrible for the most part, and the direction is very straight forward and really does nothing for suspense or atmosphere in any way. The major failing of this is the writing. The stories just aren't any good. No big twists or suprises. It really felt like a high school creative writing class. Some pretty good ideas that could be made into something with a lot of work and polish, but instead it was just shot without the rewrite. Quick example with the first short story. Why does the remote change her family? Maybe I can get by without an explanation. Why does it change her then? Why did the crazy guy change her? Why did he give the remote to her parents? They try to set the girl up as spoiled, so maybe he didn't like her. They never showed her being mean to him, so it is not well set up to why he would do this, and what is the ultimate point. Bad story and bad acting does this in. Skip it.

Not nearly as bad as other people have claimed, it's still not a very good movie. I love the original, and have soft spots in my heart for "Creepshow 2", even though it's severely flawed. "Creepshow III", isn't a "Creepshow" movie. It's more like a Sci-Fi Channels original picture. Some of the stories make absolutely no sense whatsoever and are merely there to fill time. Out of the five stories, two were legitimately enjoyable - "Professor Dayton's Wife" (in an H.G. Lewis kind of way) and "The Radio" (actually had an E.C. comics ironic ending to it). This review probably sounds like it was written by a 10 year old kid, and that's how my brain feels after watching this. It's the cinematic equivalent of Taco Bell - somewhat tasty but ultimately not very good for you.

The Good - All the stories link together. Cheesy gore effects. The Creep actually appears at the end of the movie (for all of about 2 seconds).

The Bad - The acting. The very obvious Universal back-lot sets. The music does not fit the movie at all. Most stories make no sense and have non-endings. The TERRIBLE computer animation that introduces the first story.

The Worst - The title. This isn't "Creepshow III". This is more like "Monsters: The Direct-to-DVD Motion Picture".

If you were looking for a continuation of the horror comic series "Creepshow", keep looking. If you're looking to waste 99 minutes watching something that actually has a few bright spots, watch this movie. But, in the end, it comes down to two things: 1) The producers made this movie for one reason - to cash in on the brand name of the series, sell it to Warner Brothers, and earn themselves a producing credit on the upcoming remake of the original film (if it happens). 2) Warner Brothers got the rights back to a series that they shouldn't have dropped in the first place and can now make the remake of the original (or other inferior sequels).

Why Warner Bros? You can't possibly need the money. Why bring this franchise back to life if you're not planning on giving it the justice it deserves?!? I knew the moment I saw the cover that this film wouldn't be worthy of the prior 2 installments, but decided to give it a chance anyway. Big mistake, absolutely nothing about this film works. You get a bunch of horrible stories that are supposed to be intertwined but wind up being nothing but a big train wreck instead. The stories themselves don't make any sense in the first place. They just leave you baffled in the end; & not in a good mysterious way, just WTF? For example, the first story involves a girl & her family. The father has just gotten some new universal remote that whenever he press's buttons the family (all except for the girl) change nationalities. Whenever this happens a chunk of the girl's body becomes all grossly disfigured & mutated. The movie never explains why or where (well I guess later in the movie it kinda explains where, kinda) the father got the remote, why the remote did what it did, or why the girl wasn't affected? This may not seem like a big deal, but once you watch the movie believe me it does, & the whole movie is like that. It's nothing but a bunch of inconsistent amateurish plotlines all mashed together to form one big horrible movie. Another thing about the movie is that it draaaaaaaaaaaaags on. Not necessarily due to the subject matter, but instead the pacing. You can tell this director is pure amateur hour. There's one scene in particular that comes to mind involving this lame mad scientists zany prank flashbacks. This scene went on, & on, & on, & on, just absolutely forever. Stuff like that plagues the movie from beginning to end.Read more ›
