Shudder has released a new trailer for Creepshow, their upcoming anthology series based on Stephen King and George A. Romero‘s 1982 movie of the same name.
In addition to the new trailer, a behind the scenes video was also released last week. You can find both below, along with more info on the series and details on all 12 of the segments—two segments per episode—that we’ll see in the debut season.
San Diego Comic-Con is in full effect this weekend and while yesterday was a huge day for movie trailer debuts, today horror fans can rejoice as we get our first trailer for the highly anticipated Creepshow series coming to Shudder this September. Based on the original anthology film from 1982 which saw a collaboration between horror geniuses Stephen King and George A. Romero, the new series is run by Greg Nicotero, the effects wizard who has essentially been the backbone of AMC’s The Walking Dead for years now.
Check out the Creepshow trailer and poster here below.
For anyone who’s not already aware, a TV series based on Stephen King and George A. Romero‘s 1982 horror anthology Creepshow is coming to Shudder. The movie featured a variety of terrifying tales, as well as a great cast including the late great Leslie Nielsen, four-time Academy Award nominee Ed Harris, fellow Oscar nominee Hal Holbrook, Viveca Lindfors, Ted Danson, and even King himself as a memorable lunkhead. It was also followed by a solid sequel in 1987.
Someone else who starred in the original is Adrienne Barbeau (Escape from New York, The Fog, Swamp Thing), appearing in the segment “The Crate.” And as it turns out, her time with Creepshow is not over yet. 37 years after starring in the original, she’s joined the cast of the TV series along with Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Jungle Book, Better Call Saul) and Tobin Bell (Saw, The Firm, Jigsaw).
The Station Agent and Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage is set to star in The Thicket, an adaptation of the crime thriller of the same name from author Joe Lansdale.
The movie is set in early 1900s East Texas and follows a young man who’s searching for his sister, who was kidnapped by a vicious killer. To help him in his search, he hires a crafty bounty hunter named Shorty (Dinklage), the “grave-digging alcoholic son of an ex-slave and a street-smart prostitute.”
