Creepshow movie storyline:

A young boy named Billy gets yelled at and slapped by his father, Stan, for reading a horror comic titled Creepshow. Stan reminds his wife that he had to be hard on Billy because he does not want their son to be reading such “crap”. As Billy sits upstairs cursing his father with hopes of him rotting in Hell, he hears a sound at the window, which turns out to be a ghostly apparition in the form of The Creep from the comic book, beckoning him to come closer.

Upson Pratt is a cruel, ruthless businessman whose mysophobia has him living in a hermetically sealed apartment, but finds himself helpless when his apartment becomes overrun by endless hordes of cockroaches.

The following morning, two garbage collectors find the Creepshow comic in the trash. They look at the ads in the book for X-ray specs, a Charles Atlas bodybuilding course, and a voodoo doll, whose coupon is missing. Inside the house, Billy’s angry father complains of neck pain, which escalates to deadly levels as we see Billy jabbing the voodoo doll over and over.

Creepshow is a 1982 anthology film directed by George W. Romero from a screenplay by Stephen King. The second and fourth segments of the film were based on short stories previously published by King – “Weeds” and “The Crate” respectively – while the first, third and fifth segments were written specifically for the screen. The film is extremely popular, especially with home video sales, and is regarded as somewhat of a cult classic.
