Shudder is in the process of creating a new Creepshow TV series for its online streaming service. Based on the 1982 horror anthology, written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, the new Creepshow will debut sometime in 2019 and the network is bringing out the big guns for the revival.
“I just directed an episode of the Creepshow television series,” Tom Savini announced. “There’s twelve [stories] altogether – each show will have two episodes in it. Mine’s a combination of Stand By Me, The Fog and Jurassic Park. It’s really something.”
The episode that Savini is directing is based on a short story by Joe Hill and the synopsis for the story is:
“Little Gail London and her friend Joel Quarrel are out on a cold and lonely morning at the end of summer, when they make the find of the century: a dead plesiosaur, the size of a two-ton truck, washed up on the sand. With the fog swirling about them, they make their plans, fight to defend their discovery, and face for the first time the enormity of mortality itself… all unaware of what else might be out there in the silver water of Lake Champlain.”
The new Creepshow TV series can’t come soon enough.
