‘Creepshow: Episode 1′ Review (Shudder)

  • Nerdly
Gray Matter

Story by Stephen King | Adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi | Directed by Greg Nicotero

The House Of The Dead

Written by Josh Malerman | Directed by John Harrison

All the way back in 1982, Stephen King and the late great George A. Romero colleborated on the first Creepshow film, an anthology-based homage to the horror comic books of the 1950s. It’s become a cult-classic, a film remembered fondly by most. It is, even all these years later, still a wonderful movie. 2019 sees Creepshow return, but this time as an anthology television show that will air on the horror streaming platform, Shudder. I was immediately excited about this, being a big fan of Creepshow (and Creepshow 2 for that matter), and had an opportunity to check out the very first episode of this brand-spanking-new series.

This new Creepshow will premiere on September 26th on Shudder and will feature six episodes,

A New Generation of Terror Has Arisen in the New Trailer for Shudder's Creepshow Series

“You know it’s ok to be scared, right?”

Shudder has released another trailer for Greg Nicotero’s upcoming Creepshow series, which is based on the classic horror anthology film of Stephen King and George Romeo.

I’m super excited about this series revival, and the stories that are going to be told sound like some good old-fashioned creepy fun. You can tell that the creative team had a great time making this series and telling these stories.

This new trailer offers a lot of great new footage teasing the wonderfully terrorizing madness that awaits.

We have some information on all twelve of the stories that will be told during the first season and I’ve listed them again below in case you missed them or want to read through them again.

The cast for the series includes Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito, David Arquette, Tobin Bell, and Dana Gould, Jeffrey Combs,

Sid Haig Remembered by Rob Zombie, Elvira and Other Horror Icons

Sid Haig Remembered by Rob Zombie, Elvira and Other Horror Icons
The horror community is mourning the loss of Sid Haig. The actor passed away over the weekend at the age of 80. Haig's wife Susan L. Oberg confirmed the news early this morning. Elvira Actress Cassandra Peterson and Rob Zombie, along with countless others, used their social media platforms to pay tribute to Haig and the legacy he has left behind. In addition to working with Zombie for 20 years on projects like House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, Haig also worked with Quentin Tarantino on Jackie Brown and had numerous other character roles over the years.

Cassandra Peterson posted two pictures of herself with Sid Haig. In one picture, she is dressed as Elvira and in another, she is in normal clothing while Haig is dressed as Captain Spaulding. It's too bad that we don't have a picture of both of them in character together. With that being said, it

As a big fan of those films, I enjoy how the series emulates those in its style, and you’ve gotta love the practical effects that were utilized to bring these 12 stories to life for our viewing entertainment.

AMC’s Currently Hosting An All-Day Friday The 13th Marathon

Jason Voorhees? More like Jason Bore-Hees! Ha! Oh, uh, I’m sorry, Mr. Voorhees, didn’t see you there. I didn’t mean to disparage the great Friday The 13th series of horror films that had a strong run in the 1980s, following the success of seminal slasher Halloween in 1978. While F13 was an unabashed ripoff of earlier teen horrors, crazy special effects from Tom Savini made the movies stand out.

And today, if you haven’t seen some of those effects – and have cable – you can watch seven installments of mayhem occurring at Camp Crystal Lake on AMC (check your local listings). Which seven? Glad you asked…

10am – Friday the 13th Part III

12pm – Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter

2pm – Friday the 13th: A New Beginning

4pm – Friday the 13th: Jason Lives

8pm – Friday the 13th (1980)

Creepshow Comes Back from the Grave

Alec Bojalad Sep 16, 2019

Shudder's Creepshow reboot is bringing the '80s horror anthology back to life and the set has the bloodstains to prove it.

On the calendar behind Greg Nicotero’s desk, every day, from Jan. 7, 2019 through to today, March 28, is marked with a red “X.” The lines are big and emphatic, as though the writer put every last bit of his energy into striking them.

“It seems like yesterday was January 7th and now it's the end of March,” Nicotero says, sinking into a chair in front of the calendar. “There's been no time to even pick anything up.”

Production happens in a near constant state on the Creepshow set and the chaos on the cavernous Atlanta soundstage reflects it. Outside of Nicotero’s office, hallways are littered with rubber monsters and gory props. Two lifeless Nazi soldier dolls greet the production staff arriving on set, one bald and scarred,

Which is Better? #1 – Dawn of the Dead

  • Nerdly
Which is Better is a new column here on Nerdly where we’ll pick two related movies and discuss each of them, and then conclude which we think is the best one. It might be about sequels in comparison to the first film, or the original film and its eventual remake, we might even do it for full film franchises. For this first premiere column though, I’m going to focus on an original and a remake.

Dawn Of The Dead (1978 / 2004)

So, I’ll begin by saying how much of a fan of George A. Romero’s zombie titles I am. Night, Dawn, Day, Land, Diary and Survival. I mean… obviously the first three are the golden era of Romero, and three of the very best and most influential horror films of all time, so it’s no surprise that eventually, back in 1990, somebody decided to remake one of them.

Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights 2019 Preview Tour, Featuring Creepshow and Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man

  • DailyDead
Last week, Daily Dead joined a group of journalists and esteemed Creative Director John Murdy for a preview tour of both the Creepshow and Frankenstein Meets The Wolf Man mazes, which are set to open on Friday, September 13th (the perfect day!) as part of Universal Studios Hollywood’s Halloween Horror Nights event, which runs through Sunday, November 3rd.

The first maze Murdy took us through was Creepshow, and as a longtime fan of the original film, I couldn’t have been more excited to go see what John and his tireless crew were cooking up for the attraction. Before we began the tour, Murdy discussed the approach of the Creepshow maze, and how integral Greg Nicotero—who is spearheading Shudder’s new Creepshow series this fall—was to helping make sure everything came together.

“As you can see, this maze is inspired by the 1982 film directed by George Romero,

Creepshow Returns to Pulpy Roots

David Crow Jul 24, 2019

We chat with The Walking Dead's Greg Nicotero and Giancarlo Esposito about bringing Creepshow back for a new generation.

If it wasn’t for Creepshow, Greg Nicotero might’ve been a doctor. That’s at least one way of looking at it, which Nicotero seems more than open to consider when he sits down for a whirlwind of interviews at San Diego Comic-Con. Once medical school bound, and in the footsteps of his father, Nicotero instead had a chance meeting at the age of 15 with George A. Romero, the beloved cult auteur of Night of the Living Dead, Dawn of the Dead, and Day of the Dead. Granted the latter two hadn’t been made when Nicotero met the filmmaker, but The Crazies had, which Nicotero’s uncle had starred in. And when the young man bumped into Romero at a restaurant, the director happened to

Terrifying First Trailer For Shudder’s Creepshow TV Series Debuts

Golly gee, when was the last time there was a good horror show on TV? I guess The Terror probably counts (I’m assuming it’s scary due to its on-the-nose title). Otherwise, most reality TV is pretty terrifying. Zing! Got’em!

But I might also need to get Shudder soon, because they have a Creepshow series coming out. And ya know what? It looks like a lot of stylized, practical, spooky fun. Thank you, Comic-Con, for bringing us more gory good news, and showing us how much enjoyment we’ll get out of being scared by the upcoming anthology show.

In addition to being based off the films that featured horror titans Stephen King and George Romero, may his soul rest in peace, the cast looks to be stacked, too. We have splatter veterans Jeffrey Combs and Tobin Bell, and even Adrienne Barbeau. There’s also Giancarlo Esposito, Bruce Davison,
