The House of the Head = Excellent storytelling
29 September 2019 | by skrolikowskiSee all my reviews

The first short story Grey Matter had a good build up, with great special effects with a slow reveal, which ultimately falls apart in the end.

The House of the Head was really well done and pulls you in. No need for great special effects or jump scares here, as the thrill is all in what happens next and how it'll end. I think most would agree that this was the stronger story.

All in all, I am enthusiastic about the following episodes. Creepshow always has done well exploring the darker and psychological side of horror. Love it!!
