Welcome back boils and ghouls! Now, unless you’ve been living under a rock, you already know your favorite streaming service, Shudder, is bringing the Halloween spirit to us a whole month early. How generous of them. I love you, Shudder.
Premiering September 26th, Greg Nicotero’s upcoming Creepshow is bringing back George A. Romero and Stephen King’s anthology franchise in the form of a six episode series. Every episode will feature two twisted tales for you to feast your eyes on. The only bummer? They will not be releasing all the episodes at once. That means no spooky binge sessions. Instead, a new episode will drop every Thursday until October 31st.
But cheer up! Cause Shudder has decided to reveal a couple of juicy morsels about the season premiere to hold us over. First things first, the stories in the premiere are called “Gray Matter” and “The House of the Head”.
“Gray Matter” is an adaption of a story featured in Stephen King’s 1978 collection, Night Shift. This tale follows Doc and Chief, two old-timers in a small, dying town, braving a storm to check on Richie, an alcoholic single father, after encountering his terrified son at the local convenience store. Adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi, “Gray Matter” will star Giancarlo Esposito, Tobin Bell, and Adrienne Barbeau.
The cast for “The House of the Head” hasn’t been announced but it does follow Evie who discovers her new dollhouse might be haunted. It was written by Josh Malerman and directed by John Harrison.
If you haven’t seen the trailer for Creepshow yet I highly recommend you remedy that now. It has pretty much everything you’d expect: Blood. Guts. Terror. More blood. Children in face paint. Oh, was that blood? We also get a glimpse of the Creep himself. It’s just an awesome wild ride that is totally worth checking out. See the trailer below!
