Burbank, CA: Warner Brothers, 1979. First Draft script for the 1982 film.
An early draft, with the Laurel Group address on the title page. The Laurel Group was sold the film rights by Films Around the World at the point when Romero was picked to direct the film.
Based on various EC horror comic series of the 1950s, as well as two short stories by Stephen King. An anthology of five different stories set in a very loose frame narrative of a young boy being punished by his father for reading a horror comic called Creepshow. The stories vary from familial revenge to alien life-forms. A film that belongs in a category with Mario Bava's 1968 "Danger: Diabolik!" and perhaps a few others, wherein the experience of reading a comic book is vibrantly translated to the screen.
Shot throughout Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
