Everything You Ever Need To Know About Life...

... you can learn from:

Creepshow (1982)

Wilma: You know what Henry?
You're a regular barnyard exhibit.
Sheep's eyes, chicken guts, piggy friends...
and SHIT for BRAINS!!! 

I don't know exactly what I am learning from that line... I guess it's a lesson on how to be an incredible bitch. Which is a very important lesson indeed. Perhaps the most.

(pic via Final Girl) Anyway can you believe that George Romero's classic anthology flick is 30 years old today? Horror anthologies are all the rage right now, and Creepshow's definitely one of the best examples... if not the best, overall. There's usually a segment or two that sucks in these things but I recall only happy feelings towards all five stories here. Ted Danson's head in the sand! Stephen King as a moss-covered hillbilly! Head cake on a platter! Exploding cockroach man! And of course, my beloved nasty drunken Adrienne Barbeau getting eaten by a crated Yeti. You can't go wrong.
