Written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, 1982’s Creepshow is one of the funnier and, well, creepier offerings in the horror genre. Featuring an ensemble cast, including Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, and a bugged-out E.G. Marshall, the five-part, dark-comedic cult classic ranges from a Father’s Day celebration to an odd new pet–that kills! A filmic tribute to the EC comics that King and Romero grew up reading, the film gets big points for being framed with a comic-book-like feel and the always killer makeup FX of fellow EC fan Tom Savini.
