Creepshow is coming to the Shudder streaming service and the series is bringing some top tier talent with it.
The makeup guru Greg Nicotero, who is behind the upcoming series, is bringing with him Stephen King and King’s son, Joe Hill. Writer of Bubba Ho-Tep writer Joe R. Lansdale.
“Nicotero stressed that the tone of the series would shift from story-to-story, with some taking a lighthearted comedic approach and others taking a much more frightening path. He also stated that each story would be ‘As long as they need to be’ and that he did not feel any pressure to fit the stories into segments of equal length.”
“Nicotero also revealed that the current plan is to produce digital comics based on each episode, as a potential perk for Shudder subscribers. He also hopes that they are collected into actual comics, which he believes is still the proper way to read comics.”
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.
