Longtime listeners may be sensing a bit of déjà vu with this episode. Creepshow was already discussed by Doc Rotten, Thomas Mariani, Christopher G. Mohr and Dave Dreher on episode 94 in October 2016. The current Decades of Horror 1980s Grue-Crew, however, didn’t want to be left out and because this fall saw the premiere of Creepshow the TV series on the Shudder streaming service, they thought it was the perfect time for another 1980s double tap.
When a movie is directed by George A. Romero with special makeup effects by Tom Savini; is written by Stephen King; features a comic book with cover art by Jack Kamen and interior art by Berni Wrightson; and a cast that includes Ed Harris, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Fritz Weaver, and E. G. Marshall; do you need to know anything else? Neither did the Decades of Horror 1980s Grue-Crew.
Gruesome Magazine’s Decades of Horror 1980s is part of the Decades of Horror 3-week rotation with The Classic Era and the 1970s. For their historic episode 150, the 80s Grue-Crew will Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988).
