Shudder Releases Second Trailer for Creepshow TV Series
The horror streaming platform is previewing 12 terrifying tales of terror.
By Chris Morse
A new trailer was released this week for Shudder’s upcoming Creepshow television series. Between the actors, writers, directors, and even the authors of the source material inspiring each episode, there are plenty of big horror names involved in this show in some capacity, including Greg Nicotero, Stephen King, Tom Savini, Joe Hill, Tobin Bell, Jeffrey Combs, and many more.
We are just a week away from the premiere, which contains two tales, “Gray Matter” and “The House of the Head.” The former is based on a Stephen King short story of the same name and is directed by Nicotero, while the latter is written by Josh Malerman (Bird Box) with John Harrison behind the camera. We are close enough to the series’ debut that we can begin getting the hype rolling, so give the new trailer above a watch and get yourself ready for some scares![relatedArticle-0]
Twelve segments in total will make up the Creepshow series' six-episode debut season. Previously-announced cast members for the series include Tobin Bell (Saw), Adrienne Barbeau (Creepshow film), and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), who will all be appearing in a segment based on Stephen King's 1973 short story, Gray Matter, which was eventually released as part of his 1978 collection, Night Shift. Jeffrey Combs (Re-Animator), Big Boi (of OutKast), King Cudi, Bruce Davison (X-Men franchise), and DJ Qualls (The Man in the High Castle) will also appear in episodes.
Another trio of stories we learned were being adapted are Times is Tough in Musky Holler, with John Harrison directing a screenplay from John Skipp and Dori Miller, Lydia Layne’s Better Half, written by Harrison and directed by Roxanne Benjamin, and, finally, Skincrawlers, with Benjamin this time directing a screenplay by Paul Dini and Stephen Langford.
Additional tales being adapted include Joe Hill's By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain, Bird Box author Josh Malerman's House of the Head, Joe R. Lansdale, Kasey Lansdale and Keith Lansdale's The Companion, Christopher Buehlman's The Man in the Suitcase, Bruce Jones's All Hallows Eve, John Esposito's Night of the Paw, Rob Schrab's Bad Wolf Down, and an original story called The Finger, which is written by David J. Schow and directed by The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero.
Nicotero will serve in a similar role for this series, taking on overall showrunner duties as well. Much like his time on the AMC zombie drama, he will be behind the camera in the director's chair as well.
Shudder’s Creepshow will premiere on September 26th, 2019. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on the series.
