Production Starts on Shudder's Creepshow Anthology Series!
Well this was an exciting press release I just received. We’ve heard that Shudder was going to work on an anthology series adaptation of the iconic 1982 film Creepshow and today we just received some more information.
The six-episode season will feature an adaptation of an as-yet unannounced Stephen King story! But the other segments sound just as amazing and will be based on other acclaimed horror writers, including the following:
● “By the Silvery Waters of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill (NOS4A2)
● “House of the Head” by Josh Malerman (Bird Box)
● “The Companion” by Joe Lansdale (The Bottoms)
● “The Man in the Suitcase” by Christopher Buehlman (The Lesser Dead)
● “All Hallows Eve” by Bruce Jones (The Hitchhiker)
● “Night of the Paw” by John Esposito (The Walking Dead: Webisodes)
● “Bad Wolf Down” by Rob Schrab (Monster House)
While Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) will be executive producing the series and direct some of the episodes, the other directors have me foaming at the mouth! David Bruckner, director the amazing movie The Ritual (which almost snuck into my Top Ten last year) will helm one. But so will Roxanne Benjamin (Southbound and XX) and Rob Schrab (TV credits like Ghosted and Community). Finally, John Harrison, who was the first assistant director for George Romero on the original Creepshow (and composed the film’s theme!) will be directing a story he co-wrote with Nicotero.
This is fantastic news, folks. Shudder has been absolutely killing it recently and this has me incredibly excited for what’s to come. What do you folk think, horror fam?
