Stephen King and George Romero decided to combine their talents in a film that would serve as a tribute to their shared love for the EC horror comics of their childhoods. The stories they loved were dark, always had a twist, and most importantly, always exhibited a gruesome sense of black humor. The resulting film, Creepshow, is an anthology that mimics the look of four-color comics through its stylized lighting and Tom Savini's carefully rendered comic book-style effects. The Strange Brew division of the Webster Film Series presents the film at 8 p.m. tonight at the Schlafly Bottleworks (2760 Southwest Avenue, Maplewood; as a slightly late Halloween tribute. Be on the lookout for a pre-Cheers Ted Danson as the other man in a nasty love triangle — and for writer King as a hapless Maine yokel who has a very unfortunate run-in with a meteor. Tickets are $5.
