Who doesn’t love Stephen King? Who doesn’t love George A. Romero? These two horror geniuses have delivered countless hours of terrifying fun. Back in 1982 the two legends came together for an anthology horror film called Creepshow. The movie had great segments like Father’s Day which sees a reanimated zombie daddy getting his cake, The Lonesome Death of Jordy Verrill follows Stephen King as the titular character as he is taken over by space moss, and some marital issues in Something to Tide You Over. All of this is done with an overstory about an abused boy and his Creepshow comic book, in which the Creep himself comes to life and beckons the boy to his window before we jump into the comic for our stories.
Well, it wouldn’t be the late 20-teens if we weren’t getting a reboot, remake, or re-something of this cult classic film and now we’ve got our first image of the creepy ghoul that serves as a guide for the movie:
Creepy right? I was a big fan of the original Creepshow, and horror anthologies in general, and given that increased a lifetime of horror consumption has left me desensitized I am looking forward to this idea. Modern horror can get away with a lot more thanks to better special effects, and the previously mention desensitization of the consumer. Not only that, but we’re getting this version of the property as a TV show on the Shudder streaming service. That will hopefully lead to many different stories from many different wrtiers and directors.
