Creepshow 2 (1987) from Tuna

Creepshow 2  is a sequel to the comic book horror spoof that most think would have been better unmade. Some who commented at IMDb think it is so bad it is good. It is a collection of three shorts, spliced together with animation. The stories are based on Stephen King tales (he makes a cameo appearance). 
The first has no exposure, and is the story of a wooden indian who comes alive to revenge the murders of the store keeper (Creepshow 2) and his wife.

The second is about two college couples who swim out to a raft in the middle of a lake long after the lake was closed for the season. The four
are eaten by a very hungry blob in the water. Jeremy Green shows his breasts when one of the boys decides to play with them. 

The last story features breast exposure from Lois Chiles as she gets out of bed with a gigolo, and rushes home to her husband. Along the way, she hits a hitchhiker, who just won't stay dead. 

The Critics Vote

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 4.7 
IMDb guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of excellence, about like three and a half stars from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm watchability, about like two and a half stars from the critics. The fives are generally not worthwhile unless they are really your kind of material, about like two stars from the critics. Films under five are generally awful even if you like that kind of film, equivalent to about one and a half stars from the critics or less, depending on just how far below five the rating is.

My own guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, I have some sympathy for the "so bad it's good" theory, and will award a full C, partly because I enjoyed the animation.
