Today, Shudder has announced that actors Kiefer Sutherland and Joey King will star in The Creepshow Halloween Special. This news has surfaced along with the above image from the second season of Creepshow. The anthology series ran by Greg Nicotero is based on the 1982 movie of the same title, written by Stephen King and directed by George Romero. This Halloween special will consist of two stories – both animated by Octopie animation studio, and directed by Greg Nicotero himself. In a recent press release, Shudder said,
“‘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.”
Regardless of Season 2 of the series being delayed due to Covid-19, The Creepshow Halloween Special is premiering on October 26th exclusively on Shudder.
