Conclusion: Though not as good or entertaining as its predecessor, 'Creepshow 2' still makes for a decent follow-up that offers a few amusing moments of horror comedy. Only, viewers will have to suffer through the first tale before arriving at the meatier parts about a flesh-eating gooey blob and a dead hitchhiker. The Blu-ray arrives with a mostly good picture quality and a slightly better audio presentation.
Summary: Creepshow 2 isn’t nearly as good as its predecessor but it’s still a pretty entertaining horror anthology in its own right. Image’s HD transfer does improve over the past DVD issues but stops short of perfection and sadly omits all of the extras. This is an upgrade in the A/V department to be sure, just not a massive one. Fun movie though.
Conclusion: Creepshow 2 is a reminder of how much fun the horror anthology could be when properly executed, but it pales next to both the original and the much better executed Tales from the Darkside: The Movie . Still, it has its moments, mostly courtesy of old pros like George Kennedy and Dorothy Lamour. It's unfortunate that Image Entertainment could not find better source material, but until something better comes along, this is what's available.
Excerpt: 1. Old Chief Wood'nhead: een houten Indiaan die als decoratie aan de deur van een winkel staat, komt tot leven wanneer de winkeleigenaars vermoord zijn. Hij neemt wraak. Langdradige opbouw maar wel onderhoudend vanaf het moment dat Old Chief het heft in eigen handen neemt.
