Originally written as a screenplay by King in 1982, the film was originally considered a sleeper hit at the box office bringing in over $21 million domestically and has grown with a cult following. Directed by George A. Romero (of "Night of the Living Dead" fame) and starring a high-powered ensemble cast, including Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson, E.G. Marshall, Fritz Weaver, Carrie Nye, and Ed Harris. King himself also has a cameo appearance, as does his son, Joe Hill, as the boy being punished by his parents for reading horror comic books on Halloween night.

Immediately following the film, King developed the graphic novel version of "Creepshow," which contained the five stories illustrated in comic book form by legendary artist, Bernie Wrightson.
