Creepshow TV Series Shudder

For anyone who’s not already aware, a TV series based on Stephen King and George A. Romero‘s 1982 horror anthology Creepshow is coming to Shudder. The movie featured a variety of terrifying tales, as well as a great cast including the late great Leslie Nielsen, four-time Academy Award nominee Ed Harris, fellow Oscar nominee Hal Holbrook, Viveca Lindfors, Ted Danson, and even King himself as a memorable lunkhead. It was also followed by a solid sequel in 1987.

Someone else who starred in the original is Adrienne Barbeau (Escape from New York, The Fog, Swamp Thing), appearing in the segment “The Crate.” And as it turns out, her time with Creepshow is not over yet. 37 years after starring in the original, she’s joined the cast of the TV series along with Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Jungle Book, Better Call Saul) and Tobin Bell (Saw, The Firm, Jigsaw).

Series Based On Joe Hill, Gabriel Rodríguez’s ‘Locke & Key’ Finds New Home At Netflix

Joe Hill's Locke & Key Header Image

Last year it looked like a TV series adaptation of Joe Hill and Gabriel Rodríguez‘s comic book series Locke & Key was finally going to happen, with Hulu ordering a pilot episode and Doctor Strange and Sinister director Scott Derrickson set to helm that episode. Derrickson eventually dropped out due to scheduling issues and IT and Mama director Andy Muschietti stepped in.

For whatever reasons, Hulu made the surprising decision to pass on the series. The second time that a series based on the comic looked like it was happening and then didn’t. The other being on Fox years ago. But thankfully fans didn’t have to wait nearly as long this time for the show to find a new home. It’s been announced that Netflix has picked up the show. And they’re skipping that pesky pilot episode step and jumping straight to a full-series order.

Strange Weather book review

Strange Weather: Four Short Novels
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle | Audiobook
By Joe Hill
Publisher: William Morrow
Release Date: October 24th, 2017

A fat boy takes on a polaroid-snapping, spirit-sucking menace in “Snapshot.” A reporter tries to find the truth within a gunshot filled “Loaded.” Skydiving takes a strangely unique turn in “Aloft.” In “Rain,” a perfect summer day turns deadly, as a deluge of needles murder much of Boulder, Colorado. This was the horrific collection I did not know I was waiting for!
