Creepshow is back on Shudder… at least for one special episode in honor of Halloween month. Creepshow Season 2 is currently in production for a 2021 debut and major cast additions were announced with the likes of horror veterans Marilyn Manson, Ali Larter, Barbara Crampton, Ted Raimi, Ryan Kwanten, and more. A Creepshow Animated Special went up on horror’s premiere streaming service Shudder last night at midnight and is available now. The 45-minute episode boasted an impressive Creepshow pedigree. Both stories were directed by series EP and horror makeup effects legend Greg Nicotero, who worked on the original film, and the stories come from Stephen King and his son, author Joe Hill.
Fall is almost here and with it comes lots of great new book releases. I’m an avid reader, but this year thanks to being mostly indoors because of COVID-19, I’ve already read more books in the last six months than I typically do in any given year. Probably three times as many. So, I’m really looking forward to this Fall’s new releases to keep me occupied.
Below are some books I personally am looking forward to this Fall, listed here in order of release date, starting with books releasing in September 2020. After this main list, I’ve included some picks for books that came out earlier this year that maybe you missed, and then some others that are older, but there’s a good reason to get to reading them now.

The upcoming adaptation of Stephen King‘s sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep, isn’t arriving in theaters until November. A bit of a bummer for those who were wishing they could see it this Halloween season.
But now some people will have a chance to see it early. It’s been announced that Fandango is bringing the movie to theaters early for one night only, and just in time for Halloween.

New York Comic-Con (NYCC) returned to the Jacob Javits Convention Center in midtown Manhattan on Thursday and provided a perfect venue for a screening of the second episode of Shudder’s new Creepshow series. Based on the 1982 horror anthology, the collaboration between George A. Romero and Stephen King was done in comic book form, with panels and the Creeper there to guide the way between stories. The new streaming series premiered on Shudder last Thursday and features six episodes with two horror stories in each, ending appropriately enough, on Halloween.
