I actually finished this edit a few years ago, and thought it would be a good choice for my first fanedit to post here. But I see that I need a "fanedit-in-the-works" thread before I can apply to post the fanedit. So here we go!

I started this fanedit just to add the distinctive original Creepshow theme music that was missing from the sequel, and tighten up the very slow "Chief Woodenhead" story. But I then heard that The Cat segment from Tales From the Darkside: The Movie (directed by Creepshow 2 producer George A. Romero) was actually originally written for Creepshow 2 (by Romero, from a story by Stephen King), but didn't get filmed because the budget was too low. So I added this segment. Then I swapped around the order of the segments to put Chief Woodenhead later, since it's still not a strong segment to lead with. I had to cut some of the animated narrator (The Creep)'s dialogue and move some of it around to make this work - but it actually worked quite well since he doesn't have great lip-sync anyway! I used a few shots of the comic book ad pages from Creepshow (with a music cue from Creepshow) as a transition into the Cat story, so it's the only one that doesn't have a proper intro from The Creep, but I think it works pretty well.

Hopefully I'll be posting it as an official fanedit soon!

Solid rationale there, looking forward to watching. Rewatched the first one just recently which I think has aged well.

I had to read this about four times to realize who you were talking about. Why do you give people's screen names nicknames?
It's one of my autie quirks. I've always done it with people that I feel a camaraderie with. Sorry you were confused. I fixed it.

Sorry for coming across so negative. But thank you for explaining.
