 Creepshow 2 Movie Trailer in HD – 1987

Storyline :

A delivery truck pulls up to a newsstand in a small town where a young boy named Billy arrives eagerly waiting for it. The truck’s back shutter opens to reveal a sinister figure who drops off a package onto the sidewalk — the latest issue of Creepshow, much to Billy’s delight. As the film momentarily turns into an animation, the package opens of its own accord. As Billy begins to read, the delivery man reveals his true identity as the Creepshow Creep.

Billy is seen at the town post office, receiving a package from when he sent a product ad from his copy of the Creepshow Magazine. Incensed by the skeptical clerk’s dismissal of paying $9.99 for a toy from the “funny papers,” Billy reveals that the package actually contains the bulb for a carnivorous Venus Flytrap. The clerk doubts the actuality of the package and Billy sets off for home.

 An elderly couple named Ray and Martha Spruce in a small, fictional, southwestern town called Dead River, oversee a general goods store whose decor includes a cigar store Indian named “Old Chief Wood’n head” on the front porch. They are humbled to see their old, run-down town coming to a bitter end. The Spruces are then visited by a Native American elder named Benjamin Whitemoon from a local tribe who gives them turquoise jewelry, which are his tribe’s sacred treasures, as collateral for the debt the tribe has incurred.

The elder bids them and Old Chief Wood’n head (who nods to him, briefly startling him) farewell and returns to his tribe. Later that night, the Spruces are subject to a vicious robbery led by Benjamin’s estranged nephew, Sam armed with a shotgun, and his two friends, Andy and Fatstuff. After ransacking the store, Sam demands that Ray hand over the turquoise. The Spruces reuse, and are fatally shot by Sam.

 Four college students – Deke, Laverne, Randy, and Rachel – decide to go swimming in a desolate lake far away from civilization. As they make their way to a wooden raft in the middle of the lake, they realize that they are being terrorized by floating black blob when it grabs a hold of Rachel and consumes her whole. The frightened students begin to panic and mourn the loss of Rachel. Deke then contemplates quickly swimming to shore so he can bring back help as he is a fast swimmer.

But before he can carry out his plan, the blob seeps through the raft’s cracks and pulls Deke through the raft, killing him in the process. Randy and Laverne manage to evade the creature long enough to where it gives up trying to grab them from under the raft as well. Randy and Laverne spend the entire night on the raft, afraid to fall asleep in fear that the creature will attack them while they sleep. They do manage to fall asleep and Randy is the first to wake up in the morning, relieved to find that Laverne and himself made it through the night.

 Miles away from the scene, Annie stops along the road and begins thinking about what she has done and the consequences involved, but she ultimately concludes that no one has anything on her and thinks everything will be fine. Before she can continue, however, the hitchhiker she killed suddenly appears outside her window and utters “Thanks for the ride, lady.” The frightened Annie then speeds off in terror, but everywhere she goes, the hitchhiker always reappears and becomes her tormentor throughout the trip as she repeatedly runs him over, hurls off the top of her car, slams his body into trees, etc. as he only gets more and more battered and bloody without dying. She eventually loses control of her car drives off the road and down a hill, knocking herself out.

 As the Creep is about to drive away, he spots Billy still being chased by the bullies. Billy leads his pursuers into a vacant lot swarming with out-of-control plant growth. As he rides into what seems to be a dead end, the bullies move in to pummel him, only to learn that the bulb they smashed was not the first one Billy had ordered, as a quintet of Giant Flytraps emerge from the surrounding weeds and devour the thugs one by one. The spectacle is witnessed by the Creep, who cackles in glee as he drives off in his delivery truck to deliver the latest issue of Creepshow to another town. In a post-credits scene, the following text appears.

 Creepshow 2 is a 1987 American live-action/animated horror comedy anthology film directed by Michael Gornick; and the sequel to Creepshow. Gornick was George A. Romero’s cinematographer on the original Creepshow. The screenplay was written by Romero, the director of the original film. It was once again based upon novel by Stephen King.
