In early September, Shudder announced the exciting news that production has begun for a second season. AMC’s Shudder streaming service will bring another 6-episodes in 2021. The hit anthology series, Creepshow is produced by Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) and dropped on the platform in October 2019.
In addition, even though Greg Nicotero and his team are in the middle of shooting they decided one can never really have enough Creepshow. For Halloween and releasing to Shudder on October 26th, a fully animated Creepshow special will air.
There will be two tales for you eyes to witness: A “Survivor Type,” story from a short film by Stephen King. Nicotero adapted it and it’ll be voiced by Kiefer Sutherland! (24, Designated Survivor.) He plays as a man trying to not die on a deserted island. The second story is called “Twittering from the Circus of the Dead.” This time it’s a story by Joe Hill and adapted by Melanie Dale. Joey King (The Kissing Booth, The Act) stars as the voice of a teen. A family road trip to the gravest show on earth.

The first season of Creepshow has been the most successful series for the Shudder platform so far. The series is based on the 1982 film from George A. Romero and writer Stephen King.

Is Shudder Worth It?
I was a horror fan who was using a VPN to use the Shudder service last year. Now the platform has widened its arms to include Australia, New Zealand, and Canada to its family. Compared to Netflix and Stan, Shudder is cheap. In the USA there has been an ongoing trial period on offer. Shudder is also available in the UK, Ireland, and Germany. I signed up for a year’s subscription in August using the advertised promotional code and am paid up for a whole year for under AU$60. There’s a tonne of great scary movies old and new on offer. In addition, Mother of Movies acquires advanced screeners from some distribution people so I’m in horror movie heaven. Is Shudder worth it? I think it is.
