Day 6 Movie: Creepshow 2 (1987)

I remember seeing this when I was in high school with a new “girlfriend” on a first date. Needless to say it didn’t last too long. This is one of my faves. It is a collection of short stories from George A. Romero (The Night of the Living Dead and other zombie flicks) and my favorite horror writer, Stephen King. I have been a King fan since I was a kid and remember reading his books when I was in junior high. I am especially a fan of his short story collections:  Night Shift (1978) · Different Seasons (1982) · Skeleton Crew (1985) · Four Past Midnight (1990) · Nightmares & Dreamscapes (1993) · Hearts in Atlantis (1999) · Everything’s Eventual (2002) · Just After Sunset (2008) · Full Dark, No Stars ( to be released in 2010)

My favorite story in this movie is ‘The Raft” taken from the short story by King in Skeleton Crew. watch the flick, better yet read the book, and you will see why.

Plot: EC Comics-inspired weirdness returns with three tales. In the first, a wooden statue of a Native American comes to life…to exact vengeance on the murderer of his elderly owners. In the second, four teens are stranded on a raft on a lake with a blob that is hungry. And in the third, a hit and run woman is terrorized by the hitchhiker she accidentally killed…or did she really kill him?
