Creepshow (1982)

Directed by
George A. Romero

Director George A Romero and writer Stephen King pay homage to 1950s horror comics in which protagonists meet gruesomely ironic and darkly humorous fates. This anthology of five short tales echoes the portmanteau nature of publications such as Tales from the Crypt and House of Mystery. The narrative opens on Halloween with a physically abusive father railing against his young son for reading pulp horror. While his son secretly hopes his dad will rot in hell, a ghoul appears at the lad's window and beckons him on a journey through the tales contained within his binned comic. They encompass the foolish decision to see what's inside a sealed crate from a 19th-century arctic expedition that's clearly marked 'Danger: Do Not Open'; a ghastly Father's Day reunion; a farmer who unwisely touches a meteorite; a cockroach infestation; and a husband's revenge on his wife and her lover.
