    For Creepshow 2, the quickie 1987 sequel to the Stephen King-scripted/George Romero-directed 1982 original, Romero shifted jobs to become the screenwriter, earning King (who also has a goony cameo as a trucker) a "based on stories by" credit. Cinematographer Michael Gornick stepped up to make an uninspiring directorial debut, turning out a conventional TV-look picture unlike the sometimes striking Creepshow. A frame story mixes live action and cartoon as a small boy leafs through the latest issue of his favourite horror comic while plotting revenge against neighbourhood bullies. A pun-dropping host called the Creep (played by Tom Savini when not a cartoon) introduces three anecdotes. In "Old Chief Wooden Head", George Kennedy and Dorothy Lamour are kindly Western shopkeepers killed by tearaways and avenged by the wooden Indian which stands outside the place. In "The Raft", four obnoxious teens are terrorised on a lake by a hungry slime-monster. And in "The Hitch-Hiker", hit-and-run driver Lois Chiles is haunted by her squashed victim, who keeps reappearing in a progressively battered forms. Though King and Romero deliver a good mix of cynical and melodramatic dialogue, the stories are disappointingly thin and predictable, with especially weak punch-lines. Of the performers, only Chiles really works up the hysterical attack needed to play a comic book character. On the DVD: just a trailer. The picture is a fullscreen print that cuts off crucial details in the comic book panels. --Kim Newman

    The Greatest Show On Earth is a dazzling spectacle of life behind the scenes with Ringling Brothers - Barnum and Bailey Circus the best three-ring circus in the land. The great showman Cecil B. DeMille produced and directed this splashy colourful look at life under the big top. Charlton Heston stars as Brad Braden the beloved circus manager who runs a tight ship with integrity and a big heart. In an effort to bring in enough money to guarantee a full tour Brad hires the Great Sebastian (Cornel Wilde) a daredevil trapeze star to replace his girlfriend Holly (Betty Hutton) a beautiful and talented trapeze artist who had been promised the coveted centre-ring spot. Sebastian a suave ladies' man instantly takes a liking to Holly despite their jealous rivalry. Holly and Sebastian carry on their feud high in the air with an audience watching performing a dangerous show of one-upmanship. While the two duel in the air sparks fly on the ground and Brad is too busy running the grand show to notice. This gutsy star-studded spectacle was produced in cooperation with Ringling Brothers - Barnum and Bailey circus and filmed in a pseudo-documentary style with frequent cuts from the full-scale grandiose circus acts and larger-than-life costumes by the legendary Edith Head to real footage of the daily life on the road for the full-scale travelling operation. Jimmy Stewart co-stars in a gem of a role as Buttons the clown who is hiding from a mysterious past. This cavalcade of jaw-dropping visual splendour complete with lions elephants and an action-packed train wreck of a finale is DeMille at his grandiose best. Look for many small guest appearances from circus stars and celebrities including Bing Crosby and Bob Hope.
