Shudder Is Bringing Us An Animated “Creepshow” Special This October!

Horror icon Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill, are teaming up to deliver a ghoulish Creepshow animated Halloween special this October!

Stars Kiefer Sutherland and Joey King will lend their voices to the horror streaming service special.

Sutherland (24, Designated Survivor) will star in “Survivor Type,” based on King’s short story adapted by the special’s director Greg Nicotero. Sutherland plays a man determined to stay alive alone on a deserted island no matter what the cost.

The second tale, “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) as a teen whose family road trip includes a visit to the gravest show on earth.

The Creepshow Halloween Special, based on Shudder’s anthology Creepshow series, with animation by Octopie animation studio, premieres October 26 on Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror and the supernatural.

“Halloween wouldn’t be complete without Creepshow,” said Nicotero, “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,”

Craig Engler, Shudder’s General Manager, said, “Although season 2, now in production, has been delayed due to Covid, Greg and his team were still able to pull off this fantastic special so everyone will be able to enjoy a little bit of Creepshow during Halloween season.”
