Today Shudder revealed a trailer for their upcoming Creepshow-based cartoon, A Creepshow Animated Special. The preview features The Creep, the mascot of Creepshow, shambling to a table where he begins drawing and we eventually get glimpses of what we will see in the actual animated feature.
The special will feature two stories directed by Creepshow showrunner Greg Nicotero, with animation by Octopie animation studio. “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.
“Halloween wouldn’t be complete without Creepshow, so with the help of the father and son team of Stephen & Joe as well as a fantastic animated format, we get to continue the tradition and spirit of Halloween,” said showrunner Greg Nicotero
The special will air October 26 on Shudder. Have a look at the trailer below and keep it locked to Horror News Network for the latest on Creepshow.
