Die unheimlich verrückte Geisterstunde Regie George A. Romero
Geeks hold court now, and they’d still lurk meekly were not for Romero, screenwriter Stephen King, and SFX sicko Tom Savini. Their nostalgia-porn brood Creepshow avenges every EC comic banned, burned, or trashed by authority. From the suburban escapist prologue/epilogue to the vivid primary colors caking the panel-like frames, it’s as pure a piece of Americana as its inspiration.

Stephen King’s first original screenplay, directed by George A. Romero, ought by rights to have been a major piece of work. The fact that it remains defiantly minor perhaps points to Romero’s excessive respect for King, and King’s lack of respect for cinema. ‘I like moron movies,’ he declares in his otherwise smart study of the horror genre, Danse Macabre. And so he set out to write a silly movie, inspired by EC Comics, but actually dumbed down the material.

Between the masterful DAWN OF THE DEAD and the just slightly overrated DAY OF THE DEAD, George Romero made two of the most unlikely films of his career: 1981’s KNIGHTRIDERS and 1982’s CREEPSHOW. While the former is a rather pedestrian sex comedy, the latter is easily the greatest horror anthology film ever made… The film literally moves from panel to panel…, and scenes are often bathed in red or blue light, or shot from canted angles, to maintain a feeling of cartoon-like wonderment.
