‘Creepshow’ anthology reboot coming to TV

In this strange alternative of a universe we live in today, we need every distraction possible, so we applaud the news that a new version of the Creepshow anthology will soon be coming to a TV near you.

Who can forget the majesty of the macabre known as Creepshow? The 1982 movie featured stories written by Stephen King and directed by George Romero. It was popular enough for Hollywood to return to the formula in 1987 for Creepshow 2 and again in 2006 for Creepshow 3.

Movieweb.com reports that Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) will turn Creepshow into an anthology series for TV in 2019. Nicotero will also direct and "keep an eye on the overall creative elements of the show," the website reports.

It appears the series will shown on Shudder, a subscription-based streaming service that specializes in horror content. Each episode would feature an original story with a different director.

"Creepshow is a project very close to my heart," Nicotero said in a statement. "It is one of those titles that embraces the true spirit of horror… thrills and chills celebrated in one of its truest art forms, the comic book come to life! I'm honored to continue the tradition in the 'spirit' which it was created."
