Shudder‘s “Creepshow” series is headed our way, featuring 12 terrifying tales. The new trailer goes old school in the best possible way, mixing practical special effects, the look of the original ’82 film, great writers and a fantastic cast.
Shudder’s new “Creepshow” series follows in the footsteps of the iconic horror classic written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, famously billed as “the most fun you’ll ever have being scared!” A considerable number of contributors to the new series have ties to the film and its 1987 sequel: the series will feature adaptations of a story by King as well as one by his son, Joe Hill, who fans will recall played comic-book loving “Billy” in the original film’s wrap-around segments.
The six-episode season will feature twelve segments based on stories by award-winning horror writers and stars Adrienne Barbeau, Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Davison, Dana Gould, Giancarlo Esposito, Tobin Bell, David Arquette, and Tricia Helfer.
