George Romero / Creepshow (1982)

Tomorrow night George Romero, famed director of such classics as Night of the Living DeadMartin, and The Crazies, is appearing for a Q&A at the TIFF Lightbox with previously mentioned Colin Geddes, followed by a screening of the Stephen King-scripted Creepshow. Creepshow is a horror classic intentionally referencing the dark humour of the classic EC horror comics. Nostalgic in a pleasant way, it’s worth checking out. Tickets are still available here. Note that this is just the start of TIFF’s comprehensive retrospective on the Pittsburgh auteur.

In case you haven’t seen Creepshow a million times (this was a perennial VHS rental for me growing up), here’s the trailer.
