“Creepshow” Offers Fresh Look at Things “That Will Drive You Insane” [OFFICIAL TRAILER #2]
AMC Networks’ horror-based service Shudder is set to fill our fall seasons with some serious old-school frights with Creepshow, the premium streamer’s horror anthology reboot of the 1982 film of the same name. Executive producer and segment director Greg Nicotero‘s (The Walking Dead) six-episode series previously revealed the 12 segments that comprise the first season’s run – with “Gray Matter” and “House of the Head” (more below) kicking off the September 26th premiere – as well as the first official trailer.
We say “first” because below, we have our second extended look at the upcoming series – which wastes no time backing up a very important point made in the trailer by Tobin Bell (Saw franchise):
“There are things… in the corners of this world… that will drive you insane.”
