SDCC 2019: ‘Creepshow’ Gets First Trailer
George Romero’s 1982 horror anthology Creepshow has earned cult status and even a panel at this year’s Comic-Con International in San Diego. The success of Romero’s work has also allowed Creepshow to continue on screen, thanks to the streaming service Shudder picking it up.
Shudder announced the two Creepshow stories that will be featured in the show’s premiere episode as the Stephen King story ‘Gray Matter,’ adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi and directed by series showrunner Greg Nicotero, which stars Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito, and Tobin Bell (Saw); and ‘House of the Head,’ written by Josh Malerman (Bird Box) and directed by John Harrison (Book of Blood, Tales from the Crypt). Harrison was also the first assistant director for George Romero on the original Creepshow movie.
According to the press release, “The first season will also feature segments based on stories by award-winning and acclaimed writers including ‘By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain’ by Joe Hill, ‘The Companion’ by Joe R. Lansdale, Kasey Lansdale, and Keith Lansdale, ‘The Finger’ by David J. Schow, ‘Lydia Layne’s Better Half’ by John Harrison and Greg Nicotero, ‘Night of the Paw’ by John Esposito, ‘Bad Wolf Down’ by Rob Schrab, ‘All Hallows Eve’ by Bruce Jones, ‘The Man in the Suitcase’ by Christopher Buehlman, ‘Times is Tough in Musky Holler’ by John Skipp and Dori Miller, and ‘Skincrawlers’ Paul Dini and Stephen Langford.”
Fans of the series who caught the panel were treated to the series first trailer.
