* CompleteMonster: [[CorruptPolitician Lester M. Barclay]], from "[[Recap/CreepshowS1E12TimesIsToughInMuskyHoller Times is Tough in Musky Holler]]", is the former [[MayorPain mayor]] of the eponymous Musky Holler city. After a ZombieApocalypse plagued the world, Lester came into Musky Holler offering his aide to the townsfolk. As soon as he was elected mayor, he used his power in office to overthrow and kill his predecessor, along with anyone else who challenged him. During his time as mayor, Lester had his followers spread propaganda about his laws, sanctioned his police force to rape and murder as they pleased, and imprisoned anyone who spoke out against him. Lester also created a sadistic, publicized game called "Live Pie", where a group of civilians would slowly be swarmed by zombies headfirst with no way of defending themselves.

* {{Sequelitis}}: The second movie flopped a bit when it only had three stories as opposed to five, while the 2006 unofficial threequel didn't involve King or Romero whatsoever. Rumours are flying around that there's going to be another ''Creepshow'', but only time will tell.

*** Even funnier is when you realize that not only did the Cryptkeeper get changed to being a corpse similar to the Creep in the film, but the fact that the Creep himself gets changed from being a corpse-like creature to a human being that has a dungeon-like home (seen in one of the animated sequences in the film) in the film's sequel. So, the Cryptkeeper started human (as seen in the original film adaptation) and then became a corpse, while the Creep started off as a corpse and became a human.

And even more ironic is the fact that for the upcoming TV series, the Creep has been reverted back to being a corpse-like creature.

* {{Squick}}: When you consider the relationship Nathan and his daughter were hinted to have, "Where's my cake, Bedelia?" takes on all kind of uncomfortable implications.

** The scene at the end of ''Something To Tide You Over'' is actually genuinely unnerving, with Leslie Nielsen still remaining scary even when being threatened. [[spoiler: And then you see him buried in the sand, and...well, see the above NarmCharm quote.]]
