(Man laughing)


I've never seen anyone so impatient, Billy.

As if your life depended on

getting the first copy off the presses.






(Thunder crashes)

(Thunder crashes)

(Booming voice) Welcome, kiddies...

to another edition of Creepshow.

It's amazing that you boors and ghouls

keep coming back for more.

You must be gluttons for punishment, eh?


Well... (Chuckles)

I guess you bloodsuckers

enjoy being repulsed, eh?

You're loyal to the gore.

Well, that's good.

We don't want any dead wood

in our fraternity of fright fairs

that just happens to be the subject

of our first nauseating novella,

a nasty little bonecracker titled

Old Chief Wood'nhead.

# Jimmy cracked corn and I don't care

# Jimmy cracked corn and I don't care

# Jimmy cracked corn and I don't care

# As long as I'm drinking

Jimmy's crack corn #


Now, you stop that grinning. You've heard

me sing that silly song a thousand times.

Yeah, it's time for a touch-up, my old friend.

The sun's bleachin' out your colours again.

Now, I'm gonna try and keep

my hands steady.

But I ain't what I used to be.


That ain't too bad. That ain't too bad at all.

We've got to keep your war paint fresh.

A big chief without war paint

is like... is like..

Like a storekeeper without a town

to sell his goods to.

Martha, me and the Chief been standing

on this porch for 30 years.

- We ain't about to move now.

- (She scoffs)

I'm not asking you to move, Ray.

I wouldn't want to move myself.

Well, what are you asking, Martha?

What do you want me to do?

I want you to quit, Ray. Just quit.

(Ray) Quit?

- You mean close the store.

- (Martha) Yes.

While you still have time left

to get something out of life

instead of always putting in.


This store... made it possible

for us to get married.

This store sent the girls off to school.

This store has given us the savings

to give to our grandchildren.

This store, Ray, at one time,

sat in the middle of a thriving young town,

which seemed to have a future to it.

Look at it now.

The town of Dead River is

finally living up to its name.

It's dead, Ray.

The jobs have moved away,

the money has moved away...

Ray, it's been four days since you've had

a cash-paying customer.

It's been four weeks since anyone gave you

any money on a credit account.

(Sighs) If you keep supporting these people,

we won't have anything to leave

to the grandchildren,

except good intentions.

Well, there's worse things to inherit...

than good intentions, Martha.

- Good intentions built this country.

- Good intentions tore this country down.

They're beginning to tear you down.

Do you think these people care about you?

They'll take your charity until it dries up

and then they'll leave you.

You and... that wooden Indian of yours.

I won't dry us up, Martha.

I promise you that.

It's just that we took a lot of healthy profits

out of this town.

I'd just like to give some of them profits back

in its time of need.

(Engine spluttering and revving)

Oh, there's Benjamin Whitemoon.

Hmph! In a chauffeur-driven limousine.

Now, Martha, be nice to him.

Oh, I'll be nice to him all right.

Because you want me to be.

But don't let him take too much advantage.

You're too good to these people, Ray.

(Gears crunching)

Oh, dust all over your war paint, Chief.

I should have learned by now

never to paint you on a dry day.

Yatahey, Ray Spruce.

Howdy, Benjamin.
