Out of Monsterpalooza comes a very exciting announcement: horror icon Tom Savini has directed an episode of Shudder’s Creepshow! Savini tackled “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain”, an original story by Joe Hill.
Hill’s story follows two children who find a dead dinosaur at, you guessed it, Lake Champlain. From there, the two kids have to deal with all that comes with discovering the find of the century.
“Little Gail London and her friend Joel Quarrel are out on a cold and lonely morning at the end of summer, when they make the find of the century: a dead plesiosaur, the size of a two-ton truck, washed up on the sand. With the fog swirling about them, they make their plans, fight to defend their discovery, and face for the first time the enormity of mortality itself… all unaware of what else might be out there in the silver water of Lake Champlain.“
Shudder’s Creepshow will feature six episodes. We previously wrote about “Gray Matter, which is being directed by Greg Nicotero based on a short story by Stephen King (read more here). Additional stories include “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.
The series is slated to premiere later this year.
