Monster of the Day #597

This was in the fridge, right behind the zombie head.

  • The Rev.

    I read the EC-style comic based on this long before seeing the movie. I thought the comic was better, but the movie is still fun. This, and the last segment, were my favorites.

    I recently read “The Crate,” which I hadn’t known was a short story of King’s until receiving the short story collection including it. Pretty similar to the movie version, although the monster’s a lot more interesting the way it’s described, versus the large baboon in the movie. It also had a better ending.

    “She always kept telling me to ‘get a head.’. Happy now, dear?”

    Lady Gaga’s shock-filled performance at this year’s Grammies will never be topped. Unfortunately she can only do it once.

  • Cullen Waters

    This is probably one of the best Horror anthology films ever made. There really isn’t any bad stories (mileage may vary with King’s own segment) and they get better as the film rolls on. The only really serious flaw is the damn funky lighting effects Romero has come up during key shock scenes. Really hurts the moment. All in all, though, a great little flick.

    Hi, Jen I just wanted to let you know how much I love “Cakewrecks” and how you have me laughing in my cubicle every morning.

  • CREEPSHOW was one of the films I screened last month. All in all, pretty fun. I’d forgotten this first segment entirely, but the segments with Leslie Nielsen and Hal Holbrook were even better than I’d remembered from my last viewing many years earlier. Bonus Tom Atkins points! The sequel didn’t really measure up, though.
