creepshow tv series featurette

One of my most-anticipated pieces of entertainment for 2019 is Shudder’s new Creepshow TV series.

creepshow TV show cast

Shudder’s Creepshow TV series just announced new cast members for its Stephen King-inspired episode, and the names won’t disappoint. Giancarlo Esposito, an actor who is in almost everything, most notably Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul; Tobin Bell, famous for the Saw series; and, perhaps most exciting, horror royalty Adrienne Barbeau. Barbeau’s addition is especially momentous because she also appeared in the original Creepshow movie. The three will star in an adaptation of King’s short story “Gray Matter”, directed by Creepshow showunner Greg Nicotero.

Creepshow TV series First Look

The Creepshow TV series has begun filming, and executive producer Greg Nicotero just provided the first look at the horrors that await us all. The image features the new and improved version of The Creep, the ghostly figure spotted at the beginning of the Creepshow movie. There, the “character” was little more than a puppet (that eventually turned into a cartoon). Here, it appears to be someone in great special effects make-up, or a realistic animatronic. In either case, I’m excited. See the Creepshow TV series first look below.

creepshow tv series episode

As a horror fan, there’s not much that actually shocks or disturbs me. But there are exceptions. One of those exceptions is Stephen King‘s grisly short story Survivor Type, featured in his collection Skeleton Crew. It’s a queasy, nasty piece of work about a man shipwrecked on a desert island, forced to slowly eat his own body parts to survive. And now, it might be coming to TV. Director and special effects make-up artist Greg Nicotero is currently working on a new Creepshow TV series for Shudder, and one of the episodes appears to be an adaptation of King’s gross-out short story.

The Walking Dead Ezekiel

The producers of The Walking Dead gave a press conference at San Diego Comic-Con. This included Robert Kirkman, Scott Gimple, Greg Nicotero, Dave Alpert and Gale Anne Hurd. In their panel, The Walking Dead showed a trailer revealing new characters Ezekiel (Khary Payton) and Shiva, a tiger, both of whom fans of the comic book will recognize. Kirkman said even more familiar characters are coming, but we should focus on Ezekiel and Shiva.

“We’ll always be bringing characters from the comics,” Kirkman said. “We were reaching that point where Ezekiel is in the storyline so it was just a natural progression. As we move through the storyline, we’ll be bringing some characters in episodes, some characters later and stuff like that but there will definitely be other characters that you can see this season and some surprises coming I think. Right now it’s all about Ezekiel and Shiva as far as new characters.”  Read More »
