So, not just is Creepshow getting an animated offering, but Kiefer Sutherland and Joey King will be lending their vocals to the special, which will be based on shorts by Stephen King and Joe Hill, with Greg Nicotero on directing duties? That all sounds rather fantastic if you ask us.
In terms of what to expect from this animated Creepshow special, Shudder released the below information:
Though Greg Nicotero and his team are hard at work shooting season 2 (coming in 2021), they’ve crafted a fully animated Creepshow special for us just in time for Halloween, featuring two tales to die for: “Survivor Type,” based on the short story by Stephen King and adapted by Nicotero, stars Kiefer Sutherland (24, Designated Survivor) as a man determined to stay alive alone on a deserted island no matter what the cost. “Twittering from the Circus of the Dead,” based on the short story by Joe Hill and adapted by Melanie Dale, stars Joey King (The Kissing Booth, The Act) as a teen whose family road trip includes a visit to the gravest show on earth. (Also available on Shudder Canada, Shudder UK and Shudder ANZ).”
This, of course, is all part of Shudder’s 61 Days of Halloween celebration.
