Badass horror streaming service Shudder is hard at work on their new, original TV series, Creepshow. The show is executive produced by horror icon Greg Nicotero of AMC’s The Walking Dead fame and based on the legendary 1982 anthology film, written by Stephen King and directed by the late George A. Romero. Put it together and you’ve got a match made in Heaven! Or Hell? The point is, it’s gonna be KILLER!
