The Ghost Talks Was Better, But I Enjoyed This One Too., 4 February 2013
Author: Humphrey Fish from United States

Another remake this short is. It's a remake of the 1949 short, The Ghost Talks. And while The Ghost Talks was far funnier, I enjoyed this one too. As a matter of fact, I enjoyed it quite a bit. Creeps is a good Three Stooges short film, it's both funny and scary too. This was one of Shemp's last shorts, considering that this was released after his death. And it's sad that the last shorts with Shemp were simply rehashes of earlier Shemp classics.

Shemp Howard is my favorite Third Stooge, and possibly my favorite Stooge overall, and it's really sad when you think that the last shorts that he appeared in, they were unoriginal. Oh well, some of them were still good and watchable, as the new footage in them made them funny and worth watching. I understand that the short films department wasn't make much money anymore, but I still wish that they would have been able to make some more new ones with Shemp before his death.

So if you saw and enjoyed The Ghost Talks, then you should probably watch this remake, as while it is not as good as The Ghost Talks, it's still funny and worth watching all the same. All shorts up to for Crimin' Out Loud (a remake too), were good, after Joe Besser came along, the fun ran out. I'll give this another eight for ten rating, meaning that of course it isn't one of the best Stooge short films, but it's still funny all the same, when you watch it, you'll probably like it.
