Now here’s something incredibly exciting to look forward to…
While a reboot of “Tales from the Crypt” may be on indefinite hold, EW reports that Shudder is bringing back Creepshow, only not as a film franchise. Next year, the streaming service will launch “Creepshow” as an anthology series, with makeup master Greg Nicotero (“The Walking Dead”) directing the premiere!
Nicotero will also executive-produce and supervise the show’s creative elements. His KNB EFX Group will handle the show’s creature and makeup effects.
“Creepshow is a project very close to my heart!” said 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.”
The series is scheduled to debut on Shudder in 2019. Each episode will tell original stories and be helmed by a different filmmaker.
A homage to the horror comics of the 1950s, the original Creepshow featured segments written by Stephen King and was directed by a fellow horror legend, George A. Romero.
