News: Creepshow to Make Stunning Return as Shudder Series

Exciting news on the horror front!

EW reports that Shudder is reviving Creepshow, but not as a film franchise. Next year, the streaming service will debut “Creepshow” as an anthology series, with makeup maestro Greg Nicotero helming the premiere and serving as executive producer. KNB EFX Group will handle the show’s creature and makeup effects.

Creepshow is a project very close to my heart!” says Nicotero. “It is one of those titles that embraces the true spirit of horror… thrills and chills celebrated in one of its truest art forms, the comic book come to life! I’m honored to continue the tradition in the ‘spirit’ which it was created.”

Scheduled to debut on Shudder in 2019, each episode will tell original stories and be directed by a different director. A tribute to the EC horror comics of pre-comics code 1950's, the original Creepshow was written by Stephen King and directed by a legendary horror director George A. Romero.
