In the long, central confrontation between Antigone and Creon, filmed in one sustained 'take, ' Miss Bujold and Mr. Weaver, seated at a long executive-suite table, powerfully extract the core of Anouilh's play

A murdered man emerges from the grave for Father's Day cake. A meteor's ooze makes everything ... grow. A professor selects his wife as a snack for a crated creature. A scheming husband plants two lovers up to their necks in terror. A malevolent millionaire with an insect phobia becomes the prey of a cockroach army. Add the spirited performances of a fine cast (Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Dansen, E.G. Marshall and King himself) and the ghoulish makeup wizardry of Tom Savini. Let the Creepshow begin!"--Container
