Welcome back to week 3 of Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers’ 2019 October Horror Movie Extravaganza! J. Blake and Dion Baia are back covering a classic that set the standard, the George A. Romero masterpiece, Creepshow, from 1982.
Working off the prior week’s episodes, which kind of relates to the topic, the boys also utilize the 1982 Cinefantastique article, as well as Tom Savini’s Grande Illusions: A Learn-By-Example Guide to the Art and Technique of Special Make-Up Effects from the Films of Tom Savini, for background. They also discuss Blake’s interview with director/composer John Harrison about his work on the film, which offers insight into George A. Romeo‘s vision. Dion and Blake also relay funny stories about meeting actor William Sadler, and filmmaker and friend of the show, Jeff Lieberman. It’s all going down this week on an all new creepy installment of Saturday Night Movie Sleepovers!
Check out Blake‘s interview on Scored to Death: The Podcast with John Harrison, composer of the Creepshow soundtrack!
Also discussed in the podcast, here’s our good friend Dave‘s YouTube George A. Romero interviews he taped off TV that got the attention of filmmaker Jeff Lieberman, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE.
Have a look at Dion with William Sadler, circa 2004.

I’m late to commenting on this episode (work-related stress), that being said, what an amazing episode on Creepshow! This is another “watch it with dad” movies…man, he really let me watch a lot of things I wasn’t supposed to.
Stephen King covered in green is forever etched in my mind.
It’s funny how much of an influence EC Comics had on people. When I was a kid I used to love Goosebumps. Knowing that R.L. Stein was an EC fan, that’s not surprising.
It’s funny, every time I watch Creepshow, I learn something new or see something I’ve never seen before. For example, on this watch, I didn’t realize the musical cue you guys brought up with Leslie Neilsen. Now that’s all I’m gonna hear.
I haven’t seen the new show on Shudder cause I’m going to wait for it to finish the season before I resubscribe, but I hear it’s fun. It can’t be worse than Creepshow 3
