Masters of the macabre (writer Stephen King and director George A. Romero) conjure up five shocking yarns, each a virtuoso exercise in the ghouls-and-gags style of classic 㤺s horror comics. A murdered man emerges from the grave for Fathers Day cake. A meteors ooze makes everything ... grow. A professor selects his wife as a snack for a crated creature. A scheming husband plants two lovers up to their necks in terror. A malevolent millionaire with an insect phobia becomes the prey of a cockroach army. Add the spirited performances of an excellent cast (Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, E.G. Marshall and King himself) and the ghoulish makeup wizardry of Tom Savini, and you have a non-stop, thrilling ride that "plays like an anthology of human phobias", (Roger Ebert)!

inspired by 50's horror comics featuring 5 creepy tales. "Father's Day"
features a murdered man's corpse returning from the grave for revenge.
"The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill" features a man who gets infected
by a plant-growth substance from space. "Something to Tide You Over"
features a madman plotting a sinister trap for his wife and her lover,
but gets more than he bargained for. "The Crate" features a professor
who discovers a hungry ancient beast and chooses his demanding wife
for it's snack. "They're Creeping Up On You" features a rich snob with
an insect phobia who becomes terrorized by hundreds of cockroaches.
This is definitely one of the best horror anthology films with a good
cast, eerie score and cool make-up effects by Tom Savini as usual.
Stephen King helped write this and makes an appearance along with
Savini. All 5 tales are great, but "Something" is my favorite. This dvd
has decent picture and sound, but only the trailer. I recommend this
for your horror collection.
