The film is an unofficial sequel to Creepshow 2. There was no involvement from Stephen King, George A. Romero, or anyone else involved in the production of the first two films. It was released direct-to-video in 2007 (though it was finished in 2006) to mostly negative reviews. This film, in a fashion similar to the original Creepshow, features five short, darkly comedic horror stories.
Unlike the first two Creepshow installments, in which the wraparound element linking the stories was a horror comic, Creepshow III takes an approach similar to Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, in which characters from each story collide with each other during the film. There is also a hot dog stand as a common element in the movie. Brochures, ads and other things from the hot dog stand are peppered throughout.
Alice Jacobs is a stuck-up, snotty teenager who comes home to find her father meddling with some kind of universal remote. Whenever he presses one of the buttons on the device, the whole family besides Alice changes ethnicity. During this, Alice gradually mutates into what is supposedly her "true form".
Just when Alice thinks everything is back to normal, her father presses another button, revealing Alice's true form. Her family is absolutely horrified at the sight of Alice, and the story ends with Professor Dayton, the mad scientist from down the street, using another remote control to turn Alice into a white rabbit.

The Professor's Wife
Two former students come to visit Professor Dayton and meet his wife to be, Kathy. Having been victims of his practical jokes in the past, they suspect that Kathy is actually a robot, which the professor has supposedly spent the last twenty years working on in his laboratory. She also behaves like a robot and does not eat or drink, which further indicates that she is probably mechanical.
When the professor is out of the house, they decide to dismantle Kathy to see what she looks like on the inside. To their utter horror, they learn that Kathy really was a human being after all. The professor later buys an 'advanced' voodoo kit from the homeless street vendor to put Kathy back together in time for the wedding.

One day he buys a hot dog, which was poisoned and intended for him.

The homeless man dies after taking one bite, and he returns to haunt the cruel doctor. The story ends with the doctor having a heart attack from having had too many encounters with his ghostly stalker.
