DIRECTOR: GEORGE A. ROMERO
CAST: HAL HOLBROOK, ADRIENNE BARBEAU, LESLIE NIELSEN
King and Romero first came together for this anthology knockout, a tip of the hat to the disreputable 1950s horror comics that had disturbed both men’s childhood slumber. Five chapters, featuring Leslie Nielsen haunted by a revenant Ted Danson; Hal Holbrook as college professor conspiring to use an ancient evil to relieve him of his wife; E.G. Marshall as a shut-in plutocrat confronting his worst germaphobe nightmare; and King himself, pulling out the stops as a country bumpkin who finds his body has become a fertile ground for sprouting vegetation.
