'Creepshow' EP Says Reboot Features Funny, Scary & Suspenseful Stories
The six-episode anthology (new hours stream weekly) is based on the 1982 cult film written by Stephen King and directed by Night of the Living Dead's George Romero. (Fun fact: Nicotero served as makeup effects artist for 1987's Creepshow 2.)
"Some stories are funny, some scary, some suspenseful," Nicotero teases. "You get a different experience with each."
The Stephen King horror anthology series is inspired by the 1982 film.
The opener's stories are a haunted dollhouse yarn from Bird Box writer Josh Malerman called "House of the Head" and King's "Gray Matter," about a man's grotesque transformation. "It wouldn't be Creepshow without a King story," Nicotero notes.
Fans: Try to spot the actual marble ashtray from the film's "Father’s Day" saga in each story — if you aren't too busy shielding your eyes!
