Just Desserts: The Making of Creepshow (2007)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

This 90-minute documentary takes a look at the making of George A. Romero's CREEPSHOW, the 1982 anthology film. Romero, Tom Savini, Richard P. Rubinstein, Tom Atkins, Adrienne Barbeau, Ed Harris and various other crew members are all interviewed about the ups and downs of making the picture. Romero starts off talking how Warner first saw MARTIN and asked him to meet Stephen King because they were interested in him doing SALEM'S LOT. Romero talks about how everything led to this movie and then we hear about the casting of the picture and then we get a story-to-story breakdown of the shooting of each film. There are some great stories told about the making of the picture and we also get some very good behind-the-scenes material as well as some outtakes. Most of this comes from 'Something to Tide You Over' and the King acted episode. Fans of the film are certainly going to enjoy all of these stories as you really get a great idea of what it was like filming it. We get stories from each film and there's also an entire sequence where Savini talks about his work on the picture. There's also some terrific stories about all the cockroaches that they brought in and how it all turned to a real nightmare. The documentary covers the making of the film as well as the release of it. The only negative thing is that they don't talk about the extra episode that was cut from the picture. Still, fans will certainly enjoy this thing.
