You’d be hard-pressed to find a horror fan who’s not a fan of Creepshow. Originally a 1982 horror anthology from the minds of Stephen King and George A. Romero, Creepshow’s brand of bite-sized terror was a genre smash, following up with two sequels. [Editor’s Note: wooh, Creepshow 2!!]
Spooky Streaming platform Shudder has teamed up with SFX-wizard-turned-filmmaker Greg Nicotero to bring the revival series to life, promising plenty of scares from some iconic names in horror today. Shudder’s been slowly rolling out glimpses of the new Creepshow series, teasing us with posters and a look at the newly designed ‘Creeper’. But now, we finally have a look at the very first trailer!
