Not nearly as bad as other people have claimed, it's still not a verygood movie. I love the original, and have soft spots in my heart for"Creepshow 2", even though it's severely flawed. "Creepshow III", isn'ta "Creepshow" movie. It's more like a Sci-Fi Channels original picture.Some of the stories make absolutely no sense whatsoever and are merelythere to fill time. Out of the five stories, two were legitimatelyenjoyable - "Professor Dayton's Wife" (in an H.G. Lewis kind of way)and "The Radio" (actually had an E.C. comics ironic ending to it). Thisreview probably sounds like it was written by a 10 year old kid, andthat's how my brain feels after watching this. It's the cinematicequivalent of Taco Bell - somewhat tasty but ultimately not very goodfor you.
The Good - All the stories link together. Cheesy gore effects. TheCreep actually appears at the end of the movie (for all of about 2seconds).
The Bad - The acting. The very obvious Universal back-lot sets. Themusic does not fit the movie at all. Most stories make no sense andhave non-endings. The TERRIBLE computer animation that introduces thefirst story.
The Worst - The title. This isn't "Creepshow III". This is more like"Monsters: The Direct-to-DVD Motion Picture".
If you were looking for a continuation of the horror comic series"Creepshow", keep looking. If you're looking to waste 99 minuteswatching something that actually has a few bright spots, watch thismovie. But, in the end, it comes down to two things: 1) The producersmade this movie for one reason - to cash in on the brand name of theseries, sell it to Warner Brothers, and earn themselves a producingcredit on the upcoming remake of the original film (if it happens). 2)Warner Brothers got the rights back to a series that they shouldn'thave dropped in the first place and can now make the remake of theoriginal (or other inferior sequels).

Creepshow is the best horror film ever made. Creepshow 2 was at leastdecent. This 2006 effort (I use that word kindly) is utterly useless.Containing no feel from the original, an obvious bare-bones budget, andthoroughly disappointing actors, Creepshow III (it should not be ableto use the name) simply stinks. Fans of the first two should watch thisonly to fuel their anger or to mock. I rented this from an automatedRedbox unit. (Very cool concept by the way) The rental cost only onedollar. I may have overpaid. I realize that studios and other bigcompanies usually own the rights to film names, but some comment byKing and Romero denouncing this trash would be very satisfying. Horrorfans, beware of this one!

I loved the first Creepshow, I accepted the second Creepshow, but Itruly detested the third. The first two had intriguing stories anddecent acting. The third, had stories that were below par and lameacting. The stories were in no way keeping with the first two movies,and gore, there wasn't enough to keep me even a little interested. Thesecond Creepshow had only three stories, but they were decent. Wellwritten, and pretty good acting. The third, however, feels as though agroup of teenagers got together and wrote the stories, and then invitedtheir friends to act for them. Instead of renting the third Creepshow,just rent the original and enjoy.
By the way, when I found out that the guys who co wrote Day of the Dead2: Contagium were involved in making this movie, I finally understoodwhy it was so bad.
