Three Of My Favourite Moments From Creepshow

  From my first viewing at one of my girlhood slumber parties, I have adored this movie. I suspect that Creepshow is actually a big part of the reason that I have such a love for anthologies. I could have made any number of different lists for this movie, but for today I am going with my three favourite moments. Everyone, of course, loves Ed Harris's crazy disco dancing:

  And who doesn't enjoy Upson Pratt's cockroach comeuppance?

  The following scenes are ones that give me that extra little pop of joy, for reasons that I can't really name. In order of appearance:

  1. Nathan Grantham  twists Sylvia's head completely around, and off, and then decorates it like a birthday cake.

  2. Every time Wilma "Just call me Billie" screeches "Henry!" Poor Hal Holbrook, I would have fed her to the Crate Monster, too.

  3. The final freeze on Richard's (Leslie Nielsen, whom I love) face at the end of "Something To Tide You Over."

   It is the same in the Creepshow book:

  Bonus: Mr. White and Upson Pratt's back-and-forth through the magnifying peephole.

  Head over to the Happy Haunted Sunshine House and check out my signed copy of the Creepshow comic/graphic novel.

Three Awesome YouTube Series

1.  BAMF Girls Club - Comediva

   Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Buffy (the vampire slayer), Katniss (Hunger Games), Hermione (Harry Potter), Michonne (The Walking Dead), Lisbeth (The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) and Bella (Twilight) all lived in one house? No, me neither, but it sure is funny! There are currently 12 episodes, with additional outtakes and behind-the-scenes.


Episode 1:

2. Convos With My 2 Year Old - Convos With My 2-Year-Old

  This man reenacts conversations that he's had with his 2 (and now 3) year old daughter, along with another fully grown man. It's a little creepy at first, but hysterically funny! There are currently 13 episodes, with outtakes and a Q & A with the two men.

3. Mario Warfare - beatdownboogie

   I have nothing to say other than this is awesome, and Toad is the man. There are currently 4 episodes (between 10-12 minutes each) with extras.


Episode 1:

Bonus: 3 Golden Sisters - 3GoldenSistersTV

   Three senior women talk about all manner of things, and it's funny as hell. They have over 100 episodes, along with outtakes. This was the first video I ever saw from them:
