George A. Romero, who directed, and Stephen King, the writer, have recaptured the look and storylines of an old EC horror comic. In an EC horror story, bad things happen to people but, for the most part, they deserve it.
The movie is made with humor and affection, as well as with a taste of the macabre. They create links to comic books by starting each segment with panels of a comic artist's version of the story, then dissolving to a reality that exactly mirrors it. Anyone who knows the original full name of EC comics, give yourself a cookie.
