Creepshow First Episode Review By Jessica Dwyer
Stephen King is everywhere these days and the world better keep being prepared for more of that to happen with upcoming feature films like Doctor Sleep and the Netflix only film release of his collaboration with son Joe Hill, In The Tall Grass.
But there’s another entry into the Stephen King zeitgeist that will be starting on Shudder, the horror streaming service, later this month. September 26th will see the resurrection of the George Romero and King collaboration Creepshow as an anthology series, with weekly episode releases. The brainchild and passion project of Greg Nicotero, Creepshow continues what Romero and King started back in the 80’s with the motion picture of the same name.
Creepshow collects short stories in the vein (some would say the severed vein) of the old EC horror comics of the past. Nicotero starts off the series with one of King’s most disturbing short stories, Gray Matter and partners it with the Josh Malerman short, The House of the Head.
I was lucky enough to watch the premiere episode and reviewed it. Read the full review here and prepare for the scare on September 26th when Shudder opens up the pages of Creepshow.
