Awful film from the cinema hacks who made the horrid Day of the Dead 2. These 2 so-called filmmakers buy the rights to films and then make sub-par sequels. Nobody should watch this drek. Weak beyond belief.

Not worthy of the "Creepshow" title in its name. Producer/hacks James Dudelson & Ana Clavell decided to buy the rights to Creepshow, pump out 5 garbage stories & label it "Creepshow III" hoping some unknowing fans will buy it based on the title alone...and it probably worked too.
Be warned: Stephen King & George A. Romero have NO hand in this movie whatsoever!
Watch at your own risk!

"Why? Why do I keep doing this to myself? Why do I buy movies before looking up reviews online?
I saw this in the store and said, "Oh, Creepshow 3? I loved the first one and the second one was alright, I'll pick it up."
Big mistake. BIG MISTAKE.
This film is atrocious. The acting is horrid and the stories are nonsensical. Being the masochist that I am, I actually sat through the whole thing. I almost turned it off when the story started with the doctor who was haunted by the street vagrant because he gave him, wait for it, a bad hot dog(I wish I was making this up). Luckily that was the final story of this abomination.
To all those out there even thinking about buying this because you liked the first two films, DO NOT BUY IT."

"5 tales the overlap characters and places but really not any true central theme was probably done to be able to use the same actors and locations to save some money. This is not horror, this is basic cable television movie horror. I have seen every movie anthology and probably watched every episode of Tales From the Crypt, Alfred Hitchcock, The Hitcher, Chiller, etc. so I think I know what works and what does not. I can deal with low budget stuff, I mean I still enjoy the original Outer Limits and Lost in Space, so the bad special effects didn't bother me. The acting is terrible for the most part, and the direction is very straight forward and really does nothing for suspense or atmosphere in any way. The major failing of this is the writing. The stories just aren't any good. No big twists or suprises. It really felt like a high school creative writing class. Some pretty good ideas that could be made into something with a lot of work and polish, but instead it was just shot without the rewrite. Quick example with the first short story. Why does the remote change her family? Maybe I can get by without an explanation. Why does it change her then? Why did the crazy guy change her? Why did he give the remote to her parents? They try to set the girl up as spoiled, so maybe he didn't like her. They never showed her being mean to him, so it is not well set up to why he would do this, and what is the ultimate point. Bad story and bad acting does this in. Skip it."

"Why Warner Bros? You can't possibly need the money. Why bring this franchise back to life if you're not planning on giving it the justice it deserves?!? I knew the moment I saw the cover that this film wouldn't be worthy of the prior 2 installments, but decided to give it a chance anyway. Big mistake, absolutely nothing about this film works. You get a bunch of horrible stories that are supposed to be intertwined but wind up being nothing but a big train wreck instead. The stories themselves don't make any sense in the first place. They just leave you baffled in the end; & not in a good mysterious way, just WTF? For example, the first story involves a girl & her family. The father has just gotten some new universal remote that whenever he press's buttons the family (all except for the girl) change nationalities. Whenever this happens a chunk of the girl's body becomes all grossly disfigured & mutated. The movie never explains why or where (well I guess later in the movie it kinda explains where, kinda) the father got the remote, why the remote did what it did, or why the girl wasn't affected? This may not seem like a big deal, but once you watch the movie believe me it does, & the whole movie is like that. It's nothing but a bunch of inconsistent amateurish plotlines all mashed together to form one big horrible movie. Another thing about the movie is that it draaaaaaaaaaaaags on. Not necessarily due to the subject matter, but instead the pacing. You can tell this director is pure amateur hour. There's one scene in particular that comes to mind involving this lame mad scientists zany prank flashbacks. This scene went on, & on, & on, & on, just absolutely forever. Stuff like that plagues the movie from beginning to end. Anyway, nothing about the movie works, the acting is horrendous, bad effects (a combo of cartoony CGI & what looks like bright red watery corn syrup), & the story as I said before is lame; there's just nothing good to say about the movie. In addition, the gypsy with the crystal ball you see on the fancy drawn up cover, doesn't show up until the very, very, very end right before the credits role having absolutely nothing to do with the movie what so ever. This is not an homage, but rather a complete insult to all the original greats involved such as King, Romero & Savini. Stay away from this garbage at all costs."

"When I heard this was gonna be bad I didn't assume it was going to be terrible. 100% untrue to the originals. Most of the stories just become corny. Like the other review says they just don't explain anything. To me these stories seem like the 90s versions of the Twilight Zones. And the whole blending the stories together doesn't work at all. Shows that tarentino actually has some talent when you see it done so bad.
So heres the worst news. You HAVE to see this movie. its that bad. You just can't believe it until you see it. I don't know what else to say. if nothing else I got some laughs out of the movie. But a horror movie this is not.
Zero star. It's not worth watching at all.

"The acting is a bad joke but the special effect is good in some scenes. I think the movie depicts dark humor not horror but it's not funny at all. For example, in one scene, two of the best students of a professor killed his bride by cutting her into pieces. It's because they thought she was just a robot created by him. While doing this, they kept telling each other how her body parts looked so real! I did not find that funny.
There are much better horror movies which made me shudder. They are: Black Sheep, Slither, Cabin Fever, 28 days later Pet Semetery and the Grudge."
