Stephen King Loved Shudder’s CREEPSHOW Animated Special with Kiefer Sutherland
Shudder’s A Creepshow Animated Special premiered exclusively on the horror streaming service last Thursday. And today Stephen King is singing its praise.
He tweets: “I loved that animated CREEPSHOW. Kiefer Sutherland and Joey King rocked the house. It’s a new genre, call it “carrion cartoons. Heh-heh-heh.”
Check out his tweet below.
The animated special features two stories directed by showrunner Greg Nicotero and animated by Octopie animation studio.
“Survivor Type,” based on the short story by Stephen King and adapted by Nicotero, stars Kiefer Sutherland (24, Designated Survivor) as a man determined to stay alive alone on a deserted island no matter what the cost.
“Twittering from the Circus of the Dead,” based on the short story by Joe Hill and adapted by Melanie Dale, stars Joey King (The Kissing Booth, The Act) as a teen whose family road trip includes a visit to the gravest show on earth.
A Creepshow Animated Special is produced by the Cartel with Monster Agency Productions, Octopie, Taurus Entertainment, and Striker Entertainment.
