Streaming Review: Creepshow Episode 6 – Skincrawlers/By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain
Happy Halloween, everyone! Once trick or treating is over, lay back on the couch with a huge bag of candy and watch the Season 1 finale of Creepshow on Shudder. The hit series from executive producer Greg Nicotero was just renewed for a second season and ends its first season 6-episode run on AMC’s horror and supernatural streaming service. The finale ends an already strong season with a double banger of monster goodness, with “Skincrawlers” and “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain.” The latter was directed by make-up effects guru Tom Savini, who helped Nicotero break into the horror business years ago and who worked on the original 1982 film from George A. Romero and Stephen King.
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.
Magnolia Pictures & Magnet Releasing shared an official trailer for Body at Brighton Rock this week. The movie is a survival thriller following an inexperienced part-time park ranger who takes on a difficult job to prove she’s capable, but who ends up facing the challenge of a lifetime as she ends up in a situation far more difficult than she ever imagined.
The movie is written and direct by Roxanne Benjamin, who wrote and directed 2015’s Southbound and the XX segment “Don’t Fall.” She also co-wrote a second segment for XX, titled “The Birthday Party.”
You can find a synopsis, the official trailer, and a poster for Body at Brighton Rock below.
Of the many horror films that are out there or currently in production, only a small few have been directed by a female. But since we live in more progressive times, it’s time for them to shatter that glass ceiling. A brand new trailer for XX has debuted online, highlighting one of the great things about the film: the fact that it is an anthology of films directed by female directors.
