The King of Horror has cooked up something extra spooky for this Halloween. Stephen King and his son, Joe Hill, have crafted up a Creepshow animated special starring Kiefer Sutherland and Joey King. The upcoming special, which is directed by showrunner Greg Nicotero, is set to premiere on Shudder later next month, Collider reports.
The Creepshow Halloween Special will feature two stories from King and Hill. The first is based on King’s “Survivor Type” story and features Sutherland, who voices a man trapped on an island with only his wits to keep him alive. The second story, Hill’s “Twittering from the Circus of the Dead,” stars Joey King (no relation to Stephen or Joe) as Blake, a teenager on a trip with her family that takes a horrifying turn.
“Halloween wouldn’t be complete without Creepshow, 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,” Nicotero said in a statement.
Season 2 of Creepshow is currently in production, but was delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Despite the delay, “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,” said Craig Engler, Shudder’s General Manager.
Shudder recently announced some newly-added talent for Season 2 of the horror anthology series, which is set to premiere next year and is currently under production in Georgia. Anna Camp, Adam Pally, Josh McDermitt, Keith David and Ashley Laurence have all signed on to Season 2.
Creepshow first launched on Shudder last year, breaking records on the streaming platform by bringing in enough viewers to be named the most-watched program in Shudder history.
You can catch the Creepshow Halloween Special when it officially debuts on Shudder on Oct. 26.
