Shudder Drops “A Creepshow Animated Special”

by | Oct 27, 2020

Whilst we wait for a second series of Shudders Creepshow TV series, a Halloween special is dropping on October 29th. This bite sized morsel of terror will be an Animated Special (no doubt due to Covid) which will bring us two stories written by Stephen King and Joe Hill (King’s Son).

Director Greg Nicotero Recently spoke to SyFy about Season 2 hinting of what we can expect…

“Season 2 we’re going to push it a bit more and even be a bit more outrageous. … I think we’re just going to push everything. I think the creature design and the effects are going to be more outrageous… the stories. I really wanted to just push it even further and create some even more wild stories.”

but whilst we wait, Shudder has moved ahead with a smaller scale special that will launch this week. They said…

“Though Greg Nicotero and his team are hard at work shooting season 2 (coming in 2021), they’ve crafted a fully animated Creepshow special for us just in time for Halloween.”

The two stories are:

“Survivor Type,” based on the short story by Stephen King and adapted by Nicotero, stars Kiefer Sutherland (24, Designated Survivor) as a man determined to stay alive alone on a deserted island no matter what the cost.

“Twittering from the Circus of the Dead,” based on the short story by Joe Hill and adapted by Melanie Dale, stars Joey King (The Kissing Booth, The Act) as a teen whose family road trip includes a visit to the gravest show on earth.
