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.
While I’m not a big survival horror fan, and have only played a couple of Resident Evil games briefly, there was no denying that the recently released Resident Evil 2 remake looked pretty awesome. Watching a couple of videos of it on YouTube I was introduced to an intimidating character called Mr. X, someone fans of the series are very familiar with.
Mr. X, also known as T-00, is part of the Tyrant T-103 series of superhuman “bio-organic weapons” produced using clones of the T-102 series which were altered. In the Resident Evil 2 remake, he’s basically a giant, murderous Mr. Freeze dressed like Humphrey Bogart at the end of Casablanca who relentlessly pursues the player. Modders immediately began having fun with the character, replacing him with various things. One such modder figured out a way to make him even more terrifying, by replacing him with none other than Friday the 13th‘s own Jason Voorhees.

“Psychos do not explode when sunlight hits them, I don’t give a f*ck how crazy they are!”
Twenty years ago, my father took a young 13-year old to the movie theater to see From Dusk Till Dawn. The movie was written by Quentin Tarantino who I had recently dubbed my idol after watching Pulp Fiction for the first time, and directed by Robert Rodriguez who did Desperado, another of my early favorites. It has since become something of a legend to us, and the phrase “don’t tell Mom” is part of the family vernacular. So when Fathom Events and Miramax put From Dusk Till Dawn back in the theaters, I knew I had to carry on family tradition and take my 12-year-old son to it. Sure, From Dusk Till Dawn is very rated-R. But this was a rite of passage.
The Friday the 13th video game, officially titled Friday the 13th: The Game, was on hand at the PAX West convention.
A new trailer for the game was shared with the masses there, followed by a panel that ran about an hour long. Among those taking part in the panel was the great Tom Savini, who worked on some of the old movies and helped out with making the game.
