We here at HorrorBid will be recommending one specific treasure for everyday of the month. The ultimate goal is mple; encourage the masses to seek out stellar films that fit the seasonal mold. While I’m certain plenty of our faithful readers will find some of these films predictable, or at the least familiar, we still feel as though a friendly reminder can go a long way towards renewed enjoyment.
On deck for October 22nd, is a picture that may take a few readers by surprise, as I’m highlighting what many feel to be the inferior film of this specific franchise: Creepshow 2. While the first film in the series could ealy be condered far superior, Creepshow 2 holds a special place in my heart for a few reasons.
The gist: we’re dealing with an anthology (again based upon Stephen King works) that tell the tales of a murderous wooden Indian, a hitchhiker who can’t (or can he?) get a break, and a trip to the lake that turns deadly in a hurry.
To clear things up and inform you why I’ve chosen this sequel is really rather mple. Savage wooden Indian chiefs absolutely rock, and “The Raft” is an absolutely horrifying tale that trumps every short amongst the franchise films (in my particular order). I mean this story, is a story that will honestly make you think twice the next time you contemplate a journey to the lake. Throw in some cool gore and over-the-top acting (in all the right places) and you’ve got 80’s gold here.
