    Well, in this round, I'm not a fan of "Graveyard Shift" all that much. But I think the main reasons this stands out is because of the Creepshow short. It was so damn memorable.

    Jean... for me, I just love The Crate... its a childhood thing. The story, the comic, the movie... it all plays on those core emotions of simple fear and excitement. And, when I got older and reread it, I found there were things I could still enjoy about it as an adult. It's a simple yet enjoyable short.

    I see. I didn't even know such a movie existed, have never read a comic in my life, and only read the story a few weeks ago, so no memories are attached. It didn't impress me in the least. I have been dumbfounded all this time at the sight of it beating good stories, but at least you have given an explanation I can understand (if not relate to).
