CREEPSHOW – Anthology Horror Weekend

Continuing my Anthology Horror Weekend is Shudder’s Creepshow, a new-ish series that premiered last year for the streaming platform. Produced by The Walking Dead‘s Greg Nicotero, the show is a continuation of the 1982 film of the same name (and its 1987 sequel). As an anthology film, it perfectly translates to the smaller screen, with short-format horror stories, featuring guest stars David Arquette (Scream), Tobin Bell (Saw), and Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica), among many others.

The series is made up of six-episode’s featuring two stories within each. It’s a fantastic option for a quick-binge, if you’re looking for some spooky tales this season. Even if you haven’t seen the original films, you can still enjoy this show, thanks to its format.

There are some great practical effects and some of the episodes contain some ultra creative haunts. The entire first season is available on Shudder, with a second due out next year. If you don’t have Shudder, you can also catch the episodes on its parental network, AMC.

And you better binge fast because on October 26th, Shudder is premiering The Creepshow Halloween Special. It’s a two-story animated special, based on short stories by Stephen King and his son Joe Hill. The first tale, “Survivor Type,” stars Kiefer Sutherland trying to survive on a deserted island, and the second starring Joey King in “Twittering from the Circus of the Dead,” about a family road trip gone wrong. They’re sure to be a spooky good time.

THE INVITATION: A Slow-Burn With a Horrifying Twist

The Invitation is a film I’ve mentioned several times on the site before, but I think about it so often that it needed to have its separate moment. Starring Logan Marshall-Green, Tammy Blanchard, and Michiel Huisman, the film is an enthralling low-budget horror-thriller thatContinue Reading

’90s Dark Comedies I Love

Some of my favorite childhood movies were the super weird dark comedies. I’m not sure how—or why—I was allowed to watch, but these bizarre flicks were at the top of my list as a kid. They are by no meansContinue Reading
