Shudder plans to make this Yuletide season even merrier by treating their members to a special hour-long Creepshow episode that had been scheduled for next year’s second season of the hit anthology. But now, it will stream just in time for Christmas.
A Creepshow Holiday Special–which will combine Parts 1 and 2 of the episode called Shapeshifters Anonymous–will air Dec. 18, as reported by JoBlo.com. This special, written and directed by series creator and showrunner Greg Nicotero, is based on a short story by J.A. Konrath.
The episode–starring Anna Camp and Adam Pally–follows “an anxious man” who fears he is a murderer and who “searches for answers for his ‘unique condition’ from an unusual support group,” according to the official synopsis. You can fill in the blanks here.
Nicotero got into the holiday spirit when discussing this special. “Reimagining how we look at the holidays and Santa Claus–with an outrageous ensemble cast, a myriad of creepy crawlies and a few thrills and chills–shouldn’t be missed,” he said.
Shudder general manager Craig Engler said this last year has been the streamer’s best yet, “and we wanted to thank our million-plus members with one last surprise. Greg Nicotero gift-wrapped the perfect present–an irreverent Christmas-themed Creepshow packed with humor, heart and gore galore.”
