Storyline

"Creepshow 2" is divided into three stories, conducted by a leading segment where a boy that loves the horror comic book Creepshow buys seeds of carnivorous plant and is bullied by four teenagers. Meanwhile the Creep tells the tales of Creepshow: (1) "Old Chief Wood'nhead" - The elders Ray (George Kennedy) and Martha Spruce (Dorothy Lamour) have lived their whole life and raised their family with their small store in an Arizona town. Now the town is economically decadent and Ray gives credit to his costumers including the Indians of Ben Whitemoon's tribe. When Ray is repairing the wooden statue of an old chief in the front door, Ben (Frank Salsedo) arrives and asks him to keep the jewels of his tribe as a guarantee for their debts. However, Ben's nephew Sam (Holt McCallany) unexpectedly arrives with two other punks to steal Ray, and he kills the elders. They expect to travel to Hollywood, but the Old Chief Wood'nhead will not let them go. (2) "The Raft" - The teenagers Deke (Paul ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Crazy Credits

.After the credits are over the following text appears: "Juvinile delinquency is the product of pent up frustrations, stored up resentments and bottled up fears, it is not the product of cartoons and captions, but the comics are a handy, obvious, and uncomplicated scapegoat. If the adults who crusade against them would only get steamed up over much basic causes of delinquency as parental ignorance, indifference, and cruelty. they might discover that comic books are no more then a menace than "Treasure Island" or "Jack the giant killer" Colliers magazine 1949 See more »

Great sequel with plenty of gore and laughs.
21 December 2004 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Creepshow 2" is a pretty enjoyable horror anthology that features some gruesome surprises.The first tale "Old Chief Woodenhead" is about a wooden Indian statue outside a small general store which comes to life when some local youths kill the elderly couple during the robbery. This story plays like a routine slasher flick with the statue as the killer.The special effects are excellent and there is a good amount of gore.Unfortunately the script is predictable and the acting from the younger cast is unconvincing.The second tale "The Raft" is about some teenagers who,whilst hanging out on the raft,are slowly eaten by a blob-like creature which lives in the lake.This story is fast-paced and appropriately gruesome with truly satisfying climax.The third tale "The Hitchhiker" is about a woman who does a hit-and-run on a hitchhiker and thinks she's got away with it,only to be confronted with the dead hitchhiker numerous times down the road.This story offers plenty of scares and the hitchhiker is hilarious with his incredibly funny line 'thanks for a ride,lady'.All in all if you enjoyed the first "Creepshow" give its sequel a look.8 out of 10.
