Creepshow 2 (1988) aka Dead And Undead: Creepshow 2

3 / 5
Tagline: When the curtain goes up the terror begins. Good to the last gasp.
Directed by: Michael Gornick
Written by: Stephen King, George A. Romero
Actors include: Domenick John, Tom Savini, George Kennedy
Genre: Horror
Length: 92 minutes
Banned: Sweden
Country: USA

Not nearly as inspired as the first edition, yet still totally tolerable. Again we have three tales, number one = a Native American statue comes to life for revenge purposes (which somewhat reminded me of "Trilogy Of Terror"). The next is about a bunch of teens stuck in a boat in the middle of the water with an angry blob looking for supper, and lastly a Woman runs down a hitchhiker and he dies, or does he? As you can see none of the stories are as interesting, the cast isn't as impressive and it really does feel second best in every way. It is cheaply made yet somehow still effective on a basic level, it's not as though it's difficult to get through but I guess that's the beauty of having three short stories right?
