It’s been confirmed that Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog), Tobin Bell (Saw), and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) will be starring in Shudder’s Creepshow in an episode called “Gray Matter”, which is based on a story by Stephen King and is directed by Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead). WHEW!

Previously announced segments include “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill, “House of the Head” by Josh Malerman (Bird Box), “The Companion” by Joe Lansdale, “The Man in the Suitcase” by Christopher Buehlman, “All Hallows Eve” by Bruce Jones, “Night of the Paw” by John Esposito, and “Bad Wolf Down” by Rob Schrab.
