missmutton: Curious is the Creep show movie inspired by the "Tales from the Crypt" comics or was it original a horror anthology comic too?
Creepshow is indeed an homage to the old EC comic titles like Tales from the Crypt and The Vault of Horror, though it did spawn it’s own graphic novel as a companion to the film.
Personally, I rather think Creepshow did a better job capturing the feel of old pulp horror comics than either of the films (Tales from the Crypt (1972), and The Vault of Horror (1973)) directly based upon them.
I’m sure George Romero and Stephen King’s collaborative effort probably, at least in some small way, helped mold the eventual format of the Tales From the Crypt television series.
Has there ever been a piece of music that evinced pure, sleazy, industrial grime more than Wikluh Sky’s main theme to A Serbian Film (2010)? It is a theme that is beyond effective when the end credits begin to roll (perhaps even nauseatingly so), and, even when taken away from the context of the work for which it was created, nonetheless leaves the listener with a slimy feeling of discomfort in the pit of their stomach (but in a good way).
Surely, if there was ever a film fully deserving of such a raw, driving, and evocative sound, it would be Srđan Spasojević and Aleksandar Radivojević’s veritable lightning rod of controversy.
