A Hollywood veteran and an up and coming actress land 2 spooky roles. Kiefer Sutherland and Joey King will star in The Creepshow Halloween Special, Shudder announced.
The all animated special episode is a treat for All Hallow’s Eve that will tell 2 different stories. Sutherland portrays a desperate man stranded on a deserted island in the story “Survivor Type.” He will do anything, and we do mean anything, to stay alive. Stephen King is the original author of the story.
King stars in “Twittering from the Circus of the Dead”. The short story by Joe Hill and adapted by Melanie Dale. She will play a teen on a family road trip that goes awry during a visit to the gravest show on earth.
Showrunner Greg Nicotero will direct both stories. He shares a few words on the upcoming episode. “Halloween wouldn’t be complete without Creepshow, so with the help of the father and son team of Stephen & Joe as well as a fantastic animated format, we get to continue the tradition and spirit of Halloween.”
The Creepshow Halloween Special airs on October 26 exclusively on Shudder!
