Creepshow 2 (1987) 2K Blu-ray: A worthy horror anthology

Arrow Video (UK) will be releasing director Michael Gornick’s chilling horror anthology from writers Stephen King and George A. Romero, Creepshow 2 (1987) on a 2K restoration Blu-ray limited Edition.

Titans of terror George A. Romero and Stephen King deliver yet another selection of blood-curdling tales in Creepshow 2, the follow-up to the 1982 horror classic.

In “Old Chief Wood’nhead”, a group of young hoodlums face retribution from an unlikely source after looting a local hardware store. Meanwhile, “The Raft” sees a group of horny teens wishing they’d read the warning signs first before taking a dip in a remote lake. Finally, an uptight businesswoman finds herself with some unwanted company following a hit-and-run incident in “The Hitch-hiker”.

Retaining the same EC comic book flavor that made the original such a hit, Creepshow 2, this time directed by long-time Romero collaborator Michael Gornick, is a standout horror anthology from the minds of two of the genre’s master craftsmen.

Release date: July 13, 2020
