A new episode of the JoBlo Horror Originals video series WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? has just been released, and for this one we’re digging into the making of one of my all-time favorite movies: the 1987 horror anthology Creepshow 2 (watch it HERE)! To find out what went into the making of Creepshow 2, check out the video embedded above.
Directed by Michael Gornick from a screenplay by George A. Romero (based on stories written by Stephen King), Creepshow 2 has the following synopsis:
Join our old friend, the rotting Creep himself, as he introduces this horror anthology which presents gruesome looks at three tales of horror: a hit-and-run driver in “The Hitchhiker”, a wooden Indian in “Ol’ Chief Wooden Head”, and four friends whose vacation on a secluded lake turns into a nightmare in “The Raft”. CREEPSHOW 2 is a deliciously wicked roller coaster ride that will plunge you into the heart of darkness and to the very brink of madness. Just when you thought it was safe to come back to the movies, along comes a fright-fest like CREEPSHOW 2!
The film stars Lois Chiles, George Kennedy, Dorothy Lamour, Tom Savini, Domenick John, Philip Dore, Frank Salsedo, Holt McCallany, David Holbrook, Don Harvey, Dan Kamin, Tom Wright, David Beecroft, Paul Satterfield, Jeremy Green, Daniel Beer, Page Hannah, and Stephen King, with Joe Silver providing the voice of The Creep.
This is what the WTF Happened to This Horror Movie series is all about:
Hollywood has had its fair share of historically troubled productions. Whether it was casting changes, actor deaths, fired directors, in-production rewrites, constant delays, budget cuts or studio edits, these films had every intention to be a blockbuster, but were beset with unforeseen disasters. Sometimes huge hits, sometimes box office bombs. Either way, we have to ask: WTF Happened To This Horror Movie?
The Creepshow 2 episode of WTF Happened to This Horror Movie? was Written by Eric Walkuski, Edited and Narrated by Tyler Nichols, Produced by Lance Vlcek and John Fallon, and Executive Produced by Berge Garabedian.
