CREEPSHOW: The Best Episodes Of The Series, Ranked – MovieWeb

With its eerie yet captivating tales, CREEPSHOW has enthralled audiences as both a film and a television series. Here are its best episodes.
Ever since its debut in the horror category as a 1982 motion picture, Creepshow is a good Stephen King adaptation and has been popular for a very long time. In 2019, a brand-new series, CREEPSHOW debuted, bringing back the movie's fondness for gory sensations and horror clichés. The show makes an effort to mimic the spooky comics that serve as its inspiration. Shots are either taken at strange angles that resemble comic strips or are set with margins with clunky exposition content. Brightness is gaudy and outlandish, mimicking the standard four hues of vintage comics. To horror fans' delight, the show even seems to be getting a video game adaptation.
CREEPSHOW is one of the best horror TV series to watch. Last year, the show gave viewers Seasons 2 and 3, which brought back some iconic CREEPSHOW concepts and experiences. A few of the segments also pay tribute to some well-known films. The performance of CREEPSHOW seems to have been inconsistent thus far, with certain segments being excellent, and others being boring. Let's review the series' top episodes.
It is among the CREEPSHOW stories with the most ambition to date. "Within the Walls of Madness" introduces Zeller, a prisoner about to be executed, to the audience. A story of esoteric sciences, multidimensional monstrosities, and excessive curiosity is told by Zeller, convicted of cold-bloodedly killing his colleagues in an arctic research facility. It's a more traditional story than usual CREEPSHOW content, forgoing the usual twist climax in favor of a carefully constructed story and excellent visual effects, with plenty of appropriately slimy tentacles.

In this story, Barbara Crampton plays the nasty landlady Victoria, maybe the most repulsive character in the CREEPSHOW series. The owner of a dilapidated apartment building with a pest issue, Victoria, calls in inept handyman Linus to fix the piping in her crumbling complex. She is incredibly repulsive, and the monster's nature that caused her gruesome end renders it fascinating to watch. Barbara Crampon gave one of her best performances in CREEPSHOW.
People should give this episode a shot if they are easily offended by things like hair in the shower drainage or muck in the laundry machine's pipelines. Viewers will likely want to have it all cleaned up as soon as possible if they decide to see it. It is a quintessential CREEPSHOW, a basic monster story at its core, but brilliantly humorous and revolting.
The program's excellent start is continued in the first half of the first season's second episode. A unit of American troops is imprisoned in a derelict police station during the second world war beyond enemy territory. The frantic soldiers, restrained by the Nazis, are compelled to think of extreme and sinful means to defend themselves. The arrival of genre veteran Jeffrey Combs and some superb flick-book fashion mutation graphics significantly brighten up what might have been a drab werewolf story.
A small boy named Joe in the late 1970s is hooked on acquiring, constructing, and coloring miniature kits of monsters in the film Model Kid, which has a framing narrative that is somewhat similar to the opening scene from the first Creepshow film. A violent uncle and a terminally ill mother cause Joe to further withdraw into the horror universe, which may ultimately be his escape. A homage to the vintage Universal Creatures is Model Kid. It serves as both a cautionary tale for those who might attempt an attack on the vulnerable and a story about seeking consolation in the gaudy landscapes of horror.

"Night of the Living Late Show" is the concluding episode from the second season that is longer than most narratives. Simon, portrayed by Justin Long, is an ardent fan of the classic 1972 British film Horror Express. The Immersopod, created by Simon, can transport the user into an interactive virtual cinema experience. The plot employs a well-known motif, obsession, here personified by Simon's passion for the noblewoman in the film, but the Immersopod gives it an intriguing twist. The length should have been shorter, even though it is a good story. Overall, the flashy concept is just a basic tune. However, if the segment prompts one to see the superb film that served as its inspiration, then it works effectively.
The opening scene of the first season's final episode takes CREEPSHOW to its essentials: a fun monster tale with some suitably gory demises. Henry is searching for a new answer after unsuccessful attempts to shed pounds. Leeches that actually eat the fatty part directly off the body are Doctor Sloan's completely innovative weight-loss method. When Henry first sees the outcomes of a buddy, he is initially hesitant to undertake anything so radical, but soon becomes tempted. Anything really perfect to be real is always just that, as any thriller fan can attest. Henry's suffering lays the stage for a riotous and violent conclusion that is absolutely worth the attention.
A tantalizing preview of what the show could do when translating old works for the tiny screen was provided in the later half of the initial episode. The SmithSmiths, as Evie calls a little family, reside in a sizable dollhouse that she keeps in her bed. She interacts with them, prepares meals for them, and performs all the typical activities that any girl would engage in with the dolls. Then a little decapitated head suddenly turns up inside the house. Everything in the playhouse is never exactly the same because it wasn't put over by anyone in the family. The installment lacks gore, a significant turn, a clear threat, or any notable shocks, yet it still has the classic CREEPSHOW vibe of being clever, unsettling, and stimulating.
A prime example is this section from CREEPSHOWs third episode. Many of EC's suspense thriller comics include recurring patterns about not being overly greedy and being wary of what one aspires after. Justin examines the wrong luggage he brought home from vacation to discover a man still breathing, stuffed within. The prospective wealth the man proposes tempts Justin and his pals immensely. Anyone acquainted with this type of tale understands that bad stuff happens to greedy folks, which is among the elements that make CREEPSHOW so enjoyable because it is predictable and inevitable. Not sure how it will happen is what makes it exciting.
