Back in 1982, George A. Romero and Stephen King introduced viewers to a different kind of cake, a deadly creature in a crate, and mysterious "meteor shit" that wouldn't come off no matter how hard you scrubbed. Nearly 35 years after its initial release, Creepshow is still widely regarded as one of the best (if not the best) horror anthologies, giving the Corpse Club plenty of cinematic moments to celebrate on their new episode, which also includes a look back at other beloved anthology films.
"Where's my cake?" In episode 25 of Corpse Club, co-hosts Patrick Bromley, Heather Wixson, Scott Drebit, Derek Anderson, and Jonathan James celebrate 35 years of George A. Romero's Creepshow by discussing the horror anthology's iconic performances, EC Comics-inspired visuals, memorable makeup effects, and infinitely quotable screenplay by Stephen King. The ghoulish gang also talk about some of their other favorite horror anthology films, including Trick ’r Treat, Vault of Horror, and Tales from the Darkside: The Movie. So, check on your Father's Day cake, turn down the lights, and listen to a new episode of Corpse Club... just keep one eye on the window in case The Creep pays you a visit.
