I’ve got a new poster and photo to share with you today for Greg Nicotero’s upcoming Creepshow horror anthology series. This is a revival of the 1980s horror anthology films from George Romero and Stephen King. As a fan of those films, I’m pretty pumped up about what this new series will deliver.

Some information was recently released on all twelve of the stories that will be told during the first season and they all sound pretty crazy and intriguing. I’ve listed them again below in case you missed them or want to read through them again.

As for the new poster, it features The Creep inviting you to come watch the show.

The new photo comes from EW and features Tricia Helfer in the episode called “Lydia Lane’s Better Half”, which is based on a story that Nicotero wrote. He said, “It’s a take on an old Mario Bava movie. I always loved Tricia. She plays a strong female executive who finds herself in this untenable supernatural situation that she can’t control.”
