Dig Deeper Into CREEPSHOW With These Behind-The-Scenes Featurettes

November 25, 2019
Behind the Scenes

Creepshow Season 1 may be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t revisit some of the best parts of the series so far. From deep-cut Easter eggs, old friends, and new faces to honoring George Romero’s legacy and creating something spooky from a place of love, there’s tons to dig into. 

First up we have a look at most of the hidden gems from the first season. This Easter egg featurette lays out all the goods, from the deep cuts for Creepshow aficionados to the less obscure gems every horror fan will catch. On top of showcasing Nathan Grantham’s ashtray once or twice (or a dozen times), the entire first season was riddled with homages to Stephen King’s work as well as a fun little nod to The Frighteners and even … E.T.??

Next, showrunner, producer, director, and special fx legend Greg Nicotero talks about reviving Creepshow for a new generation while honoring Romero’s legacy, working with Stephen King, and the fine art of short story-telling. 

In “Acting Scared”, Nicotero talks about the names that validated the original Creepshow in the eyes of the general public. Giancarlo Esposito, David Arquette, D.J. Qualls, Tricia Helfer, Dana Gould, and Tobin Bell along with horror legends like Jeffery Combs and Adrienne Barbeau talk about the magic of Creepshow and the importance of working with people who love the genre. 

“The Past Is Present” explores all the ways Nicotero worked to keep the original Creepshow in the veins of its Shudder continuation from including John Harrison, Tom Savini, and Barbeau to revitalizing the film’s visual style. 

Joe Hill talks about growing up on the set of Creepshow and his contribution to season 1, “By The Silver Waters Of Lake Champlain” directed by Tom Savini in “Joe Hill: Full Circle”… 

… while “The New Blood” looks at the newer faces behind the scenes on Creepshow and the horror fans discovering the franchise for the first time.
