As a novelty in a now official anthology franchise, Creepshow 2 is fully animated with a decent frame-by-frame render between its segments. The wrap-around story is amusing, looks made for kids, but culminates into something sinister, of course. The comic book element has been replaced by cartoon renditions, but this sequel feels continuous otherwise.
The tales are once again from Stephen King and George A. Romero’s pens, but the directorial chair has been filled by a newcomer. Having the horror legends taking a slight step aside doesn't impact the production quality in any way. In fact, Creepshow 2 outdoes itself on many levels. The actors aren't as famous as they were in part 1, but they do a convincing job.
Part 1 had five stories and this one only three. First, we meet an avenging statue, then a hungry oil patch and, finally, an angry hobo. The three scripts are thin, so the limited amount of segment isn't justified. Because the stories are longer but not denser than those of the previous film, they burn slowly. Despite a weak last third, Creepshow 2 is one of the best released horror anthologies.
