  • “By the Silvery Waters of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill (NOS4A2)
  • “House of the Head” by Josh Malerman (Bird Box)
  • “The Companion” by Joe Lansdale (The Bottoms)
  • “The Man in the Suitcase” by Christopher Buehlman (The Lesser Dead)
  • “All Hallows Eve” by Bruce Jones (The Hitchhiker)
  • “Night of the Paw” by John Esposito (The Walking Dead: Webisodes)
  • “Bad Wolf Down” by Rob Schrab (Monster House)

executive producer Greg Nicotero
Having the opportunity to embrace the spirit of Creepshow and expand on what George and Steve created is, without a doubt, a lifelong dream come true, Having grown up in Pittsburgh, Creepshow lives in a special place for me. I had the good fortune to visit the set as a teenager. I was able to look behind the curtain of filmmaking, and it changed me forever. I’m honored to continue telling the stories in the ‘comic book come to life’ world that fans fell in love with. This fall we will be ‘opening the coffin’ and unleashing upon the world our demented and ghastly stories, crafted by the best in business.”

In addition to his EP duties, Nicotero will direct some of the series. Other installments will be helmed by David Bruckner, director of the acclaimed horror film The Ritual as well as Bloody Disgusting segments in our V/H/S and Southbound; Roxanne Benjamin, director of segments in Bloody Disgusting’s Southbound and also XX; and Rob Schrab, whose numerous TV directing credits include Ghosted and Community. John Harrison, who was the first assistant director for George Romero on the original Creepshow movie (and who also composed the film’s theme), will be directing a story he co-wrote with Nicotero.

I really liked The House of the Head. Nice to see the girl from the Walking Dead getting other parts as she's a good actress.

The Finger was also good.

I'm sure last year around Black Friday they did some free offers for trials of 3 months on the Amazon Prime sub channels. Like Starz, etc.

Will keep an eye again as would be a good (and legit :D ) way of being able to watch this and other shows like Castle Rock.
