Greg Nicotero’s Creepshow anthology starts production

Effects artist Greg Nicotero, whose work has most famously appeared on AMC’s The Walking Dead, is finally getting his Creepshow series off the ground. The six-episode season, which will eventually air on Shudder, has kicked off production in Atlanta, Georgia. One episode will be based on a Stephen King story, with other episodes penned by King’s fellow acclaimed horror writers including:

“Silvery Waters of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill ( NOS4A2 )

“House of the Head” by Josh Malerman ( Bird Box )

“The Companion” by Joe Lansdale ( The Bottoms )

“The Man in the Suitcase” by Christopher Buehlman ( The Lesser Dead )

“All Hallows Eve” by Bruce Jones ( The Hitchhiker )

“Night of the Paw” by John Esposito ( The Walking Dead: Webisodes )

“Bad Wolf Down” by Rob Schrab ( Monster House )

The Creepshow TV series will be an anthology of original stories, each made by a different director, with the series scheduled to kickoff on Shudder in 2019. Nicotero’s KNB EFX Group will create the creature and makeup effects on the show, which will be produced by The Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment.

The original 1982 Creepshow was directed by George A. Romero from a screenplay by Stephen King that paid tribute to the EC horror comics (ala “Tales From the Crypt”) of the 1950’s. The film featured stars such as Hal Holbrook, Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ted Danson and Ed Harris, and grossed $21 million at the box office. It was followed by Creepshow 2 in 1987, directed by the first film’s cinematographer Michael Gornick from a screenplay by Romero, once again based on short stories by King, grossing $14 million.

An in-name-only Creepshow 3 was released direct-to-video in 2006 with no participation from Romero or King, which is why the Romero-produced 1990 anthology Tales from the Darkside: The Movie is often referred to by fans as “the REAL ‘Creepshow 3,'” as it also includes a King story originally intended for Creepshow 2.
