    Arrives September 26th



    The streaming service also announced the two Creepshow stories that will be featured in the show’s premiere episode: the Stephen King story “Gray Matter,” adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi (The Commuter) and directed by series showrunner Greg Nicotero, which stars Barbeau, Esposito and Tobin Bell (Saw); and “House of the Head,” written by Josh Malerman (Bird Box) and directed by John Harrison (Book of Blood, Tales from the Crypt). Harrison was also the first assistant director for George Romero on the original Creepshow movie.

    That's very cheesy looking. I love it. :)

    Huge fan of the original film. Can’t wait for this.

    Looks to be keeping in tone with the original too.

    No info on IMDb on the episodes yet.

    It's been getting great reviews

    Loving the look and feel to it.

    Watched the first half of episode 1 last night: Gray Matter.

    Thought it was really good. The narration worked very well. It was kind of like Stephen King’s (the one he acted in) story in the original Creepshow, but darker.

    Adrienne Barbeau in it too. Fans of the original will remember her. :)

    Looking forward to House of the Head later.

    Loved both episodes a great Sunday afternoon watch with the curtains closed.

    Really enjoyed these especially second episode


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 200 ✭✭ world class wreckin’ cru


    Head of the House was very good. Great couple of horror vignettes in that first episode. Looking forward to this week’s episode.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,560 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Two more great episodes.

    I loved the whole feel of the first episode with the Nazis and the filming of it the puppetry the whole vibe it gave off.

    DJ Quall's was so good in the second episode.

    This weeks episodes rocked as well.


    The first one was the best of the season for me a very simple story told brilliantly.

    The second episode had a great moral to the story.


    They are nailing the season perfectly.


  • Registered Users Posts: 26,810 ✭✭✭✭ gmisk


    Up to date on these, the trick or treat episode wasn't the best for me, really enjoyed the others.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,560 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Two more great episodes again this week.

    Tricia Helfer is like a fine wine.


    I would guess this whole season cost less than one episode of the new Twilight Zone and is ten times better.

    Great news renewed for a 2nd season.


  • Registered Users Posts: 11,564 ✭✭✭✭ Skerries


    creepy cackling


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,560 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Finished the season.

    What a fabulous series that stuck to its origin and didn't try to modernize it for the sake of it, it told simple stories told well with good old fashioned special effects, puppetry and blood bags and no CGI from what I could see.


    Brilliant 10 out of 10.

    Probably a little off topic but, I have a amazon fire stick and a shudder subscription but I cannot seem to get the app on the amazon fire.

    Is it to do with some region nonsense?

    Can you get other apps?

    I have shudder app on mine no issue, but had for ages


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,934 ✭✭✭ brevity


    I have the usual Netflix, Prime, Disney, Apple TV and there are others available but just haven’t downloaded them..

    I have the Shudder app on my iPhone but it won’t connect to the Fire to cast it. I can do this with Netflix etc..not with Shudder though.

    Season2 started last night and I loved the first story so much.

    The second story a Raimi and the Necronomicon and the Joy of Painting what's not to love.

    That opening 1 was great wasn't it.
    Second story also hugely enjoyable.

    I enjoyed season 1 but these felt like a step up


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,560 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    Really liked the first story this week and the second one really didn't click for me.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,560 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson


    One full episode this week and it was so fun.

    I am really loving what they are doing with this show.


  • Registered Users Posts: 55,560 ✭✭✭✭ Agent Coulson
