Creepshow (12-Nov-1982)

Director: George Romero

Writer: Stephen King

Original Music: John Harrison

Producer: Richard P. Rubinstein

Keywords: Horror, Anthology

A child is punished and his "trashy" comic book thrown away; the five stories contained within, inspired by the E.C. company's horror comics of the 1950s, are introduced by The Creep as the wind turns the book's pages. Followed by a lesser sequel, Creepshow 2 (1987). Compare Tales from the Crypt (1972), a British production anthologizing the same genre of comic.
