We’re more than a third of the way through Shudder's 61 Days of Halloween event, but the premium streaming service for all things horror, which just hit the one million subscriber mark, has even more Halloween treats to share!
The streaming service has today announced a fully-animated "Creepshow" Halloween special, which will feature two new stories directed by "Creepshow" showrunner Greg Nicotero, with animation by Octopie animation studio.
The "Creepshow" animated special will launch exclusively on Shudder on October 26th.
The stories were written by Stephen King and Joe Hill, and will feature the voice acting talents of Kiefer Sutherland (The Lost Boys) and Joey King (The Kissing Booth, The Act)!
"Survivor Type," based on the short story by Stephen King and adapted by Nicotero, stars Sutherland as a man determined to stay alive alone on a deserted island no matter what the cost.
"Twittering from the Circus of the Dead," based on the short story by Joe Hill and adapted by Melanie Dale, stars King as a teen whose family road trip includes a visit to the gravest show on earth.
"Halloween wouldn’t be complete without Creepshow, so with the help of the father and son team of Stephen & Joe as well as a fantastic animated format, we get to continue the tradition and spirit of Halloween," said Nicotero.
"Although season 2, now in production, has been delayed due to Covid, Greg and his team were still able to pull off this fantastic special so everyone will be able to enjoy a little bit of Creepshow during Halloween season," said Craig Engler, Shudder’s General Manager.
