The holiday: Father's Day The movie: 'Creepshow' (1982) In a sentence: Five short comic-book influenced tales from Stephen King and George A. Romero. Why it captures the holiday: What am I going to get dad for Father's Day? The question has been asked annually by millions, without a truly satisfactory answer. A tie was the old standby for years. Lately, gift cards are more in vogue. But Stephen King and George A. Romero provided the definitive answer years ago: It's cake that dad wants. It sure wasn't a gift card that spurred Nathan Grantham (Jon Lormer) to crawl out of the grave and extract revenge upon his children.
