Not as good as the first, although not without merit

This cheesy comedy horror sequel is worth a laugh or two if you're in the right silly mood...but it's far from being a good movie. Where the first CREEPSHOW had five or so stories and a snappy, blink-and-you'll-miss-it pacing, CREEPSHOW 2 is more laborious and slow-moving. This time around, there are only three tales, surrounded by an ultra-cheesy CARTOON wraparound that has really bad animation - and seems to be aimed at 4 year-olds rather than a mature horror fanatic looking for some blood. In fact, the only thing interesting about the wraparound is the appearance of Tom Savini, unrecognisable as the Creep, who chucks things from the back of a van a couple of times.

The first story in CREEPSHOW 2 has the best cast and most old-fashioned and detailed of plotting. It takes the form of a simplistic revenge story in which a giant wooden Indian statue takes revenge after its owners are murdered. George Kennedy and Dorothy Lamour, two old-timers from the heyday of cinema, put in good work here, and the villains are suitably villainous to be effective. There's a nice element of Native American mysticism added to the mix, and a fun climax.

The second story is based on a Stephen King story, and is definitely the most exciting of the bunch. Four teenage tearaways are trapped on a raft in a lake in the middle of nowhere by a gloopy blob that is pretty similar to the one in THE BLOB (surprise). There's a memorable scene in which the hero forgets about his peril and sneaks a peek up his (female) companion's shirt only to get a nasty surprise, and lots of slimy, sticky and quite disgusting special effects to stay in the mind. The segment's final image proves to be unforgettable, the only thing I could remember about this film 6 years after I first saw it.

The final story is notable in that it stars Lois Chiles, better known as Holly Goodhead in MOONRAKER. Chiles is seemingly down on her luck here, whipping off her top within the first minute of appearing, and her acting isn't too good - far too over-the-top. However, the rest of the story ingredients are also over-the-top, so it seems somehow appropriate. This is the one with the famous quote "thanks for the ride, lady!", as a woman driver kills a hitch-hiker in a hit and run accident, and is subsequently haunted by his rapidly-falling-apart body. Tom Wright (the Jamaican cop from MARKED FOR DEATH) is the hitch-hiker, and, despite the comedy, this is the film's strongest segment with some really icky gore effects. Stephen King also pops up in an amusing cameo as a trucker.

one out of three

It's the sequel to the anthology series by Stephen King and George A. Romero. There are three main stories with animation in between. The first has Ray Spruce (George Kennedy) and wife Martha (Dorothy Lamour) as the owners of a tiny general store in the middle of nowhere. The wooden Indian has been out front for some 30 years. When the Spruces are killed in a robbery, the wooden Indian comes alive to right the wrong. It's a slow start. The tension isn't high. The Indian isn't that scary. He looks like a guy in makeup. There is no drama.

The second story has four young people driving to an isolated lake. The water is cold and there's a blackish blob. It looks like an oil slick and the foursome gets stranded on the wooden raft in the middle of the lake. It is very simple and very effective. The special effects aren't that sophisticated but are also very effective. This is a much better section.

Annie Lansing (Lois Chiles) is cheating on her husband. She's rushing to drive home late at night when she hits a hitchhiker (Tom Wright). She takes off but gets haunted by him. Stephen King does some over-acting. Annie is not an appealing character and nobody should care what happens to her. The tone should be moody but it overplays its hand. The music cues are too loud. It doesn't work. This is basically one out of three. The animated connecting scene don't work either. The middle section is very memorable even after many years since I last saw it. That's not enough.

Thank You for the Ride

"Creepshow 2" is divided in three stories, conducted by a leading segment where a boy that loves the horror comic book Creepshow buys seeds of carnivorous plant and is bullied by four teenagers. Meanwhile the Creep tells the tales of Creepshow:

(1) "Old Chief Wood'nhead" - The elders Ray (George Kennedy) and Martha Spruce (Dorothy Lamour) have lived their whole life and raised their family with their small store in an Arizona town. Now the town is economically decadent and Ray gives credit to his costumers including the Indians of Ben Whitemoon's tribe. When Ray is repairing the wooden statue of an old chief in the front door, Ben (Frank Salsedo) arrives and asks him to keep the jewels of his tribe as a guarantee for their debts. However, Ben's nephew Sam (Holt McCallany) unexpectedly arrives with two other punks to steal Ray, and he kills the elders. They expect to travel to Hollywood, but the Old Chief Wood'nhead will not let them go.

This segment is the best one, with a heartbreaking and gore tale of justice and revenge. My vote is eight.

(2) "The Raft" - The teenagers Deke (Paul Satterfield) and Randy (Daniel Beer) travel with Laverne (Jeremy Green) and Rachel (Page Hannah) to a lake expecting to smoke weed, swim and get laid. They swim to a raft that is floating in the middle of the lake, but they discover a carnivorous blob in the lake that is hungry.

This segment is silly but the conclusion is very funny. Daryl Hannah's red haired sister is gorgeous but has a minor participation in the story. My vote is six.

(3) "The Hitchhiker" - In Maine, the unfaithful Annie Lansing (Lois Chiles) stays too long having sex with her escort and is late to meet her husband at home. She drives her Mercedes Bens in a hurry and loses control on the road. Annie runs over a hitchhiker, but she does not help the man and hit-and-run, questioning whether she can live with the situation. She discovers that the hitchhiker will not leave her.

This is the creepiest segment, with a cameo of Stephen King in the role of a truck driver. Would Annie's conscience or the hitchhiker be haunting Annie? My vote is seven.

I regret that only three films have been released for this entertaining series. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Creepshow 2"
