WHEN THE CURTAIN GOES UP THE TERROR BEGINS
Horror titans George A. Romero and Stephen King deliver yet another fiendish selection of blood-curdling tales in Creepshow 2 now newly remastered in 2K!
In Old Chief Wood'nhead , a group of young hoodlums face retribution from an unlikely source after looting a local hardware store. Meanwhile, The Raft sees a group of horny teens wishing they d read the warning signs first before taking a dip in a remote lake. Finally, an uptight businesswoman finds herself with some unwanted company following a hit-and-run incident in The Hitch-hiker .
Whilst retaining the EC comic book flavour that made the original such a hit, Creepshow 2, this time directed by long-time Romero collaborator Michael Gornick, is a decidedly darker and grimmer affair than its predecessor and remains one of the greatest horror anthologies of all time.

I expected more of the same with Creepshow II, but was disappointed. The movie contains three shorts as compared to five in the first release - and the quality is not the same. There's more gore -- but a lot of blood and gore do not (inof itself) a good movie make.
Additionally, these stories were more mundane and usual than the ones in the first film. By far the best was "The Raft". The last one about the hitchhiker is an overdone theme, originally from a Twilight Zone episode, which has appeared in many anotholgies since. Hey guys, let's do something different! Lots of other b&w pulp horror shorts are available.
Well, I can't really recommend this one whole-heartily, though I will probably buy it when it is available on DVD (because I DID enjoy the first release and I tend to complete collections). Folks who enjoy the genre will probably want it to fill out their libraries. Just be aware that there are better titles available for the money.
