''Creepshow'' is a 1981 film based on the works of Stephen King and directed by George Romero. The film is split into five separate stories, and has a wraparound segment where a horror comic by a little boy gets confiscated and disposed of. Through a "Grim Reaper" like character who is the comic's mascot, we are told the stories.
