Creepshow is a Stephen King, consists of five short films, two of which are based on earlier prose stories by King, while the remaining three were written specifically for the movie.

The book's interior art is by Bernie Wrightson with Michele Wrightson, with a cover by Jack Kamen.

Stories

The comic book, like the movie, consists of five short stories. These are:

  • "Father's Day"
  • "The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill" (based on the short story "Weeds", first published in 1976)
  • "Something to Tide You Over"
  • "The Crate" (based on the short story "The Crate"", first published in 1979)
  • "They're Creeping Up on You"

There is no introduction or afterword of any kind, although on the back cover it states "Stephen King conjures up five jolting tales of horror." Interestingly, the short stories "Weeds" and "The Crate" have never been collected in a King book and both remain uncollected.
