Comments:

Creepshow 2 is definitely not as good as the first Creepshow. First of all, Romero and King sort of distanced themselves from this movie. Secondly, on the new Anchor Bay Divimax DVD I have linked above, the director talks about how this movie was plagued by a small budget, numerous delays, and simply ego on the part of some of the people involved. With that said, Creepshow 2 is still a fun movie to bring out around Halloween every year. It features three stories instead of the original's five. The first story concerns a wooden Indian, a murder, and strange revenge. The second tale is based on the King short story "The Raft", and I liked it best out of this bunch. And lastly, a lady's refusal to pick up a hitchhiker has deadly consequences. If you liked the first movie, you will more than likely like this one as well. I'd give this a rental first, but I liked it well enough to buy it after seeing it on TV.
