Shudder's upcoming TV series revival of Creepshow has gotten a new poster ahead of Comic-Con weekend. The original Creepshow, released in 1982, was directed by zombie maestro George A. Romero and written by horror legend Stephen King. The film did well enough to warrant two sequels, which didn't get nearly as good reviews as the original. Now, Shudder is close to releasing the first Creepshow TV show, exclusively on their streaming service.
Around this time last year, it was announced that Creepshow would be adapted into a TV show. Greg Nicotero, who's most known for creating stunning makeup on AMC's The Walking Dead, will be the show's producer and even direct one of the episodes in the series. Marketing material has been scarce so far. While Shudder hasn't released an official trailer for the series yet, they did share a behind-the-scenes video with Nicotero, who talks about his passion for the project. When the first episode of the show wrapped filming, Nicotero shared a first look image of The Creep; a mysterious ghoul who's the host of the anthology stories (much like the Crypt Keeper from Tales From the Crypt). Now, a new poster for the show has been revealed.
Bloody Disgusting was the first to report on the new poster, which features The Creep holding a remote in front of a TV while several sets of ominous yellow eyes float in the background. The poster also confirms that the anthology series will have a total of twelve episodes, although only eight have been revealed thus far. Check out the eye-catching poster below.
Each of the three original movies were all anthology-style films, so naturally, the TV series will continue the tradition. As previously mentioned, the series will have a total of twelve horrifying stories, including one of King's short stories; "Gray Matter". The remaining seven episodes will be titled, "By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain”, “House of the Head”, “The Companion”, “The Man in the Suitcase”, “All Hallows Eve”, “Night of the Paw”, and “Bad Wolf Down”, but not as much are known about these stories. The show is also rumored to be adapting King's short story "Survivor Type", but that's yet to be confirmed.
Shudder has yet to set a release date for Creepshow, but with San Diego Comic-Con taking place this weekend, fans could be treated with a release date as well as a trailer. Shudder also seems to be the best option for the series, since their streaming service is completely devoted to horror and has already had successful exclusives. Needless to say, Creepshow seems to be in good hands, and with Halloween inching closer, fans can expect to hear more news sooner rather than later.
