Whatever... just go with the flow.
The first tale, Skincrawlers, is a fun and gory commentary on our obsession with weight loss and body image, and the price we're willing to pay for it; especially those who don't want to put any real effort in.
Someone has found a leech that only sucks the fat out of your body with no side effects. If you think it sounds too good to be true, you're right. And if you want to see a blood-splattered conclusion, then this is the Creepshow vignette for you! I had a lot of fun with this one, and found myself laughing and clapping my hands with glee more than a few times. Kudos to co-writer Paul Dini (Batman: The Animated Series) for this one.
The final anecdote, By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain, is directed by effects legend Tom Savini, and based on a Joe Hill short story. It's a big slow down from Skincrawlers, and tries to bite off more than it can chew emotionally, but it's a lake-monster story, and we get precious few of those.
Rose's father died seeking out the fabled Champ, the monster legend says dwells within Lake Champlain, and she's convinced the beast killed him. So she sets out to find redemption for her dad. You can predict what will happen as the story unfolds, but I was still satisfied with the watch.
All in all, the first season of Creepshow was great fun, and a welcome throwback to the practical effects and fun storytelling of the 80s. This episode rates a Good, and I look forward to Season 2.
