Creepshow: Kid Cudi, Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Davison and more join cast


Shudder’s Creepshow added more names to its cast and announced all twelve segments for this anthology series. Let’s get creepy…

Creepshow is coming back, though not in the shape of a remake but as an anthology series for the streaming service Shudder. Back in 1982, horror legends George A. Romero and Stephen King joined forces to bring a horror comedy anthology movie titled Creepshow, with (also horror legend) Tom Savini in charge of special effects.

For that and more, this movie has a special place in the hearts of horror fans, and hopefully this new series will gain their love and respect as well. Unlike the movie, which had just one writer (Mr. Stephen King), the series will have different writers for each segment. As for the cast, we know that Adrienne Barbeau, Giancarlo Esposito, Tobin Bell, David Arquette, Tricia Helfer, and Dana Gould are on board, and they will be joined by some new names.

Shudder announced that musicians Kid Cudi and Big Boi, as well as actors Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Davison and DJ Qualls have joined the cast of Creepshow. In addition to that, Shudder revealed the story “The Finger”, written by David J. Schow, directed by showrunner Greg Nicotero  and starring Qualls.

Kid Cudi and Jeffrey Combs will star in the segment “Bad Wolf Down”, written and directed by Rob Schrab; Bruce Davison will appear in “Night of the Paw”, written by Jon Esposito and directed by John Harrison; and Big Boi will be featured in “The Man in the Suitcase”, written by Christopher Buehlman and directed by Dave Bruckner.
