George Romero, collaborating with writer Stephen King, again proves his adeptness at combining thrills with tongue-in-cheek humor.
This five-part film, based on the format of 50s horror comics, marks one of the few times George Romero has directed someone else's script (it's by Stephen King), and the results are only mildly interesting by the standards of his Dead trilogy.
he old Amicus movies used EC originals to better effect and with more brevity, for all their cardboard sets.
Romero and King have approached this movie with humor and affection, as well as with an appreciation of the macabre.
Horror film purists may object to the levity even though failed, as a lot of it is.
