"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

Barbara Eden was originally cast as the hit-and-run driver Annie Lansing during the last segment, "The Hitch-Hiker"; but had to drop out prior to filming, due to her mother falling ill. See more »
In just about every scene where Old Chief Woodenhead (the wood-carving) is seen standing in front of the store, you can see slight movements by the actor who played him. However this is NOT a mistake as the characters in the film even give subtle acknowledgment the wooden statue has moved. This is to show that the statue was actually "alive" all along. See more »

.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 »
As good as the first Creepshow - almost. These three twisted tales are fun but scary too. If you enjoyed the first film then you should enjoy Creepshow II as well.
"Chief Wooden Head" is by far a more of a drama or serious story to me. It's just a good horror story. "The Raft" is good but my least favorite of the trilogy. It's good, but typical young kids out for a good time that end up dead - the twist is it's not a slasher. "The Hitchhiker" is my favorite as far as comedy goes. This one had me laughing very hard. "Thanks for the ride lady" still rings in my head and I laugh every time.
Anyway, Creepshow II is worth watching if you like a bit of comedy with your horror.
