Widely considered to be one of the greatest horror anthologies ever released, George A. Romero and Stephen King’s Creepshow is an enduring classic that has retained its charm and spooks, making it a perfect film for the Halloween season. So naturally the incredible folk over at Scream Factory are releasing their own amazing edition of the film tomorrow and we want to celebrate it by showing off an exclusive clip from a roundtable chat between several of the cast/crew!
In the clip below, John Amplas, Tom Atkins, Tom Savini, and Marty Schiff are all talking about the rotting corpse suit from the “Father’s Day” sketch and how Amplas refused to do the scene with real maggots, so they had to rely upon one of the women on the crew to don the suit and do that scene! As the four put it, “Girls are braver than men!”
You can order your copy of Creepshow through Scream Factory.
“A murdered man emerges from the grave for Father’s Day cake. A meteor’s ooze makes everything … grow. A professor selects his wife as a snack for a crated creature. A scheming husband plants two lovers up to their necks in terror. A malevolent millionaire with an insect phobia becomes the prey of a cockroach army. Add the spirited performances of an excellent cast (Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, E.G. Marshall and King himself) and the ghoulish makeup wizardry of Tom Savini, and you have a non-stop, thrilling ride in Creepshow.”
