George A Romero (1982)

AA Certificate


Our Score
Night of the Living Dead director George A Romero and top terror writer Stephen King neatly capture the ironic spirit of those forbidden 1950s horror comics in this lively anthology of ghoulishly funny fear tales. Zombie fathers, green space fungus, caged ancient creatures and the walking dead come alive from the pages of a comic book thrown away by a concerned parent. The creepiest tale is a "man versus nature" allegory about a paranoid millionaire and millions of cockroaches. Anyone with an insect phobia, beware! Stylishly scary stuff.


Anthology of five scary tales paying homage to the cult American EC comics of the 1950s and based on stories by Stephen King, who also makes a cameo appearance. Horror, starring Leslie Nielsen, Carrie Nye and Hal Holbrook.
