While the original Creepshow wasn't exactly a critical favorite, its stock increased rapidly when George A. Romero and Stephen King returned to the same well with Creepshow 2, which pares down the five story format of the first film to three here. At the time of its release, the movie felt like a wobbly attempt to make a few bucks without the love for E.C. Comics found in the original; it's a tackier and cheaper effort in every way, but oddly enough, that's made it weirdly endearing over the years with its low-rent charms aging surprisingly well.
