Creepshow Production Started—House Of Tortured Souls

Shudder has announced that production has begun the reboot of Creepshow. The six-episode season will be produced by The Walking Dead’s Greg Nicotero and the horror series is based off the iconic 1982 film which was written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero

The six-episode season will feature an unannounced Stephen King story and for right now they are saying it’s like a “survivor type” of story. 

Nicotero will direct some of this series and the other installments will be done by David Bruckner, Roxanne Benjamin, Rob Schrab, and John Harrison. Bruckner is the director of The Ritual along with Bloody Disgusting segments in V/H/S and SouthboundBenjamin has directed such segments in Bloody Disgusting’s Southbound and XX. Schrab’s directing credits goings to Ghosted and Community, and Harrison who was actually the first assistant director for George Romero on the original Creepshow movie will be directing a story that he co-wrote with Nicotero. Harrison also composed Creepshows film’s theme. 

Additional stories and directors as well as the casting will be announced later this year. Creepshow will premiere on Shudder later on in the year—no specific date as of now. 

Normally for me personally, I tend to like when they leave the classics alone however with Nicotero producing this I am curious to see the route they will go and what amount of gore they will endure. I am curious to see all the effects and Nicoyero’s Oscar and Emmy award-winning company will be handling all of the creature and make-up effects. Definitely will be opened minded and give it a chance when this becomes available on Shudder.
