Thank goodness for the old-fashioned "Save the best for last" principle!

Like probably several horror fanatics with me, I looked forward the most to the "Creepshow" segment directed by make-up wizard, horror icon and all-around cool bloke Tom Savini. Whether or not deliberately, the producers kept us waiting until the last segment of the very last episode. Was Savini's contribution worth the wait? Probably not, but it was a likeable and charming homage to sea/lake monster B-movies (type "Monstroid", "The Crater Lake Monster", "The Loch Ness Horror", ...). The biggest and most pleasant surprise of the entire season, however, came whilst waiting for Savini's tale!

"Skincrawlers", the second story directed by Roxanne Benjamin (following the strictly average "Lydia Layne's Better Half"), unexpectedly turned out the best and most entertaining one of the whole show! Obnoxious TV-doctor Sloan discovered the ultimate breakthrough in battling overweight, namely with rare South American leeches that suck the fat straight out of obese people. Just when the reluctant patient Henry Quayle is about to give a demonstration on nationwide television, there's a solar eclipse to which the little creatures react rather ... psychotic. The short tale is delightfully over-the-top, with extreme gore and nasty monster transformations. The make-up effects are insanely gooey, with a sublime tongue-in-cheek tribute to classic scene of "Alien".
