Who else is excited that The Creep is coming back this year? I know I sure am! As a fan of the movies and the show, it is safe to say that viewers can all say that any time we get with The Creep is a good time. Well, maybe not the victims inside of the stories. Thankfully for us, October 29 is inching closer this upcoming week so that we can watch the premiere of A Creepshow Animated Special. If that news wasn’t cool enough, we now have a trailer and some key art to show you guys, thanks to Shudder!
View the trailer for A Creepshow Animated Special below:
The trailer is so creative. To feature The Creep drawing, the special himself is such a unique approach to advertising these two tales in this animated special, written by Stephen King and Joe Hill.
Years ago, when I was working at Blockbuster, I had a customer tell me to read “Survivor Type” by Stephen King. It’s a story that will haunt you on multiple levels, so to see it getting the spotlight is exciting as the information Shudder released about the special.
Shudder has released the following information about the special:
A Creepshow Animated Special features two stories directed by Creepshow, Greg Nicotero, with animation by Octopie animation studio.
“Survivor Type,” is based on the short story by Stephen King and adapted by Greg Nicotero, stars Kiefer Sutherland (Designated Survivor, 24) 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 Joey King (The Kissing Booth, The Act) as a teen whose family road trip includes a visit to the gravest show on earth.
A Creepshow Animated Special is produced by the Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Octopie, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment.
Also, when viewers consider that Joey King has made quite a name for herself in the horror world, and Kiefer Sutherland has as well over the years, fans are in for quite a treat having these two stars voice the lead characters within the animated features.
