Creepshow aired its first season back in 2019, and was instantly renewed for a second following good reviews and viewing figures. While the second season was held up due to the Covid pandemic shutdown the two specials were released in 2020. Season 2 premiered in April this year, by which time a renewal for a third season had already been announced. The newest season premiered on September 23rd. As a whole, the series currently carries a 97% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and with its retro feel could not have found a better home than on Shudder.

The majority of the episodes in the series are new stories written especially for the show, but they have also adapted a number of short stories by original creator Stephen King and his son Joe Hill. This has included King’s Gray Matter and Survivor Type, and Hill’s By The Silver Water of Lake Champlain, Twitterings from the Circus of the Dead and Mums. As well as a number of screenwriters being involved in the making of the show, it also features numerous directors including John Harrison, Greg Nicotero, and horror icon Tom Savini, all of who worked with King and Romero on the original Creepshow movies.

For any fan of men in monster suits, over-the-top gore and horror that doesn’t take itself too seriously, then Creepshow is probably the best thing you are going to find out there right now. With Christmas approaching, no doubt the season 2 Blu-ray from Shudder will be finding its way into a few stockings next month, and we can only hope it isn’t accompanied by a severed foot.
