Shudder has announced the new premiere date and released the official trailer to the highly anticipated horror anthology series, Creepshow. Based on the iconic ‘80s, written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero,check out the first trailer that was released during San Diego Comic-Con 2019!
Based on the iconic 1982 film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, comes a new horror anthology series from the mind of The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero. Creepshow stars David Arquette, Adrienne Barbeau, Tobin Bell, Big Boi, Jeffrey Combs, Kid Cudi, Bruce Davison, Giancarlo Esposito, Dana Gould, Tricia Helfer and DJ Qualls.
Here are 5 reasons we love the official trailer to Creepshow:
5) The Creepshow Creep!
The trailer opens and closes with The Creepshow Creep. Notice how the lighting feels very comic booky, especially with the blue and green tones. The Creep doesn’t say anything in the footage, but notice how the ghoulish host moves its eyes around in an extreme closeup.
4) The Dollhouse!
There’s something very odd and compelling with how the trailer starts. We see a sweet little girl walking up to her dollhouse to play with. What she finds inside (brace yourself!) her dollhouse is a dead body.
3) David Arquette!
We mentioned before, David Arquette will star in “Times is Tough in Musky Holler.” The segment is directed by John Harrison, written by John Skipp and Dori Miller. After catching a glimpse, I wonder if his episode will be filmed entirely in black and white.
2) Tobin Bell!
Tobin Bell teases viewers, “There are things in the corners of this world, that will drive you crazy.” Bell appears in In “Gray Matter,” alongside Adrienne Barbeau and Giancarlo Esposito. Showrunner Greg Nicotero will be directing this installment.
1) Tricia Helfer!
As a Battlestar Galactica fan, I can’t wait to see Tricia Helfer in “Lydia Layne’s Better Half.” Under that green glow, Helfer is just laughing, like she just lost her mind.
Creepshow will premiere on Shudder Thursday, Sept. 26th, 2019.
