Here’s some news that’s very near and dear to my heart! Two of my favorite illustrated magazines growing up, Creepy and Eerie, are headed for the small screen! How friggin’ sweet is that!
Producers Dan Braun and Josh Braun (History of Violence) of New Comic Company announced today that they are developing a TV series based on the the classic horror comics “Creepy” and “Eerie” with director Chris Columbus (Harry Potter, Goonies). More details will be revealed in the coming weeks.
They also say that Ti West (The Roost, House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), Larry Fessenden (The Last Winter) and Mark Duplass (Baghead) are potentially directing episodes under the newly launched Creepy Studios banner.
Creepy and Eerie, which were released by Warren Publishing in the 1960s, reached the peak of their popularity in the 1970s. They focused on macabre and otherworldly stories in the manner of “Tales From the Crypt” and “The Twilight Zone.” Their success even prompted comics giants DC and Marvel to launch horror titles.
