[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image=”23249″ img_size=”768×433″ alignment=”center”][vc_column_text]Horror movie fans, heads up, a Creepshow TV series is hitting the streaming service Shudder later this year and we’ve just gotten word on the cast that has been added such as David Arquette, Tricia Helfer, and Dana Gould. Joining them will be special effects, Tom Savini, to direct an episode. Savini worked on the original film, to which showrunner Greg Nicotero expressed:
“There wouldn’t be a Creepshow without Tom Savini. His mark on the horror industry and unflinching approach to special effects make-up did more for the genre than anything since the invention of fake blood. Tom has always been a visionary and his love of cinema and making movies is felt in every frame of his episode. I’m honored to have my friend as a big part of the team.”
“Part of what makes Creepshow fun is getting a chance to work with some terrific actors who also love the genre,” Nicotero noted. “It adds that level of excitement when we get to share our collective love for horror in this fashion. David and I have worked together before and Dana Gould might be my equal in terms of all things horror. Then bring Tricia into the mix and Creepshow just shines. Getting to watch her exude power, grace and intensity in a story I wrote can’t be matched.”
Savini also shared:
“Having done all the creepy, monstrous, gory effects in the original movie, I am indescribably overjoyed to come full circle now directing an episode of this Creepshow series.”
As far as the actors, Arquette will star in Times Is Tough in Musky Holler, which is described as such:
“Leaders who once controlled a town through fear and intimidation get a taste of their own medicine.”
Helfer will star in Lydia Layne’s Better Half:
“A powerful woman denies a promotion to her protégée and lover but fails to anticipate the fallout.”
Gould star in Skincrawlers:
“A man considers a miraculous new treatment for weight loss that turns out to have unexpected complications.”
