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.
