Storyline

"Alice": The suburban Alice is an annoying teenager that does not like the neighborhood where she lives. When her father uses a universal remote control developed by Professor Dayton, she moves to other dimensions with other families and when she returns, she's transformed into a rabbit, and is forgotten by her family. "The Radio": The security guard Jerry buys a radio developed by Professor Dayton from a street vendor. The radio talks to him and gives instructions to steal US$ 300,000.00 from a criminal, kill a couple of smalltime crook neighbors and move to another city. When Jerry decides to bring the prostitute Eva with him, he seals his fate, when he destroys the radio and has a tragic surprise. "Call Girl": Rachel's a call-girl and serial killer. When she's hired by the weird Victor, she kills him while having sex, but later, she finds the truth about the odd teenager. "The Professor's Wife": Professor Dayton invites his two best former students to introduce his fiancée Kathy in... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Trivia

In the first segment, the audience hears beeping when Alice uses what looks to be a rotary phone. This is not a mistake, in actuality, there are phones designed to look like rotary phones when they actually have push buttons. See more »

Goofs

When the possessed radio unexpectedly starts playing a song when Jerry is in the shower, the sound of running water stops and the bathroom door opens immediately. Jerry could not have possibly turned off the water, stepped out of the shower, and opened the door in this tiny amount of time. See more »

Possessed Radio: Don't even fuck with commodities. They're just gonna get you in trouble.

Makes "Creepshow 2" look like "Creepshow"
25 April 2007 | by ecwaenigmaSee all my reviews

Not nearly as bad as other people have claimed, it's still not a very good movie. I love the original, and have soft spots in my heart for "Creepshow 2", even though it's severely flawed. "Creepshow III", isn't a "Creepshow" movie. It's more like a Sci-Fi Channels original picture. Some of the stories make absolutely no sense whatsoever and are merely there to fill time. Out of the five stories, two were legitimately enjoyable - "Professor Dayton's Wife" (in an H.G. Lewis kind of way) and "The Radio" (actually had an E.C. comics ironic ending to it). This review probably sounds like it was written by a 10 year old kid, and that's how my brain feels after watching this. It's the cinematic equivalent of Taco Bell - somewhat tasty but ultimately not very good for you.

The Good - All the stories link together. Cheesy gore effects. The Creep actually appears at the end of the movie (for all of about 2 seconds).

The Bad - The acting. The very obvious Universal back-lot sets. The music does not fit the movie at all. Most stories make no sense and have non-endings. The TERRIBLE computer animation that introduces the first story.

The Worst - The title. This isn't "Creepshow III". This is more like "Monsters: The Direct-to-DVD Motion Picture".

If you were looking for a continuation of the horror comic series "Creepshow", keep looking. If you're looking to waste 99 minutes watching something that actually has a few bright spots, watch this movie. But, in the end, it comes down to two things: 1) The producers made this movie for one reason - to cash in on the brand name of the series, sell it to Warner Brothers, and earn themselves a producing credit on the upcoming remake of the original film (if it happens). 2) Warner Brothers got the rights back to a series that they shouldn't have dropped in the first place and can now make the remake of the original (or other inferior sequels).
