Shudder’s upcoming original series Creepshow wants to worm its way into your nightmares.
The series is based on the 1982 anthology film from two horror legends (written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero). The new series is also an anthology of twisted tales and based on the trailer, features some genuinely gruesome imagery. The trailer doesn’t waste any time delivering your daily dose of f*cked up, smacking us with a savage jump scare at the ten-second mark.
Reporting from San Diego Comic-Con, Deadline has issued a few details on the premiere episode.
The streaming service also announced the two Creepshow stories that will be featured in the show’s premiere episode: the Stephen King story “Gray Matter,” adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi (The Commuter) and directed by series showrunner Greg Nicotero, which stars Barbeau, Esposito and Tobin Bell (Saw); and “House of the Head,” written by Josh Malerman (Bird Box) and directed by John Harrison (Book of Blood, Tales from the Crypt). Harrison was also the first assistant director for George Romero on the original Creepshow movie.
Based on the iconic 1982 film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, comes a new horror anthology series from the mind of The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero.
