Horror anthologies are fun

The Creep is posting new horror!

The Creep is back with a bunch of tales of horror and macabre.  With killer flowers telling tales of death, pop stars with big secrets, Hollywood collectors, and possession, the horror continue to flow.  The world is full of fear and death is surrounding everyone from cursed paintings, the undead, and sirens…the Creep brings it all to you in Creepshow!

Creepshow—Season 3 is a Shudder horror anthology series.  The season aired from September 23, 2021 to October 28, 2021.

I am a big fan of horror anthologies, and Creepshow was one of my favorites.  The Creepshow TV series has been a bit hit or miss…but I still watch and enjoy as Creepshow—Season 3 rolls on.

Feels like we’re getting a closer to a return of “Fluffy” from the original movie!!!

The series is only six episodes with two stories each show.  That is part of the series’ issue.  While a number of the stories work, some of them are just so-so.  With a series like The Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, or Tales from the Darkside, there were a large number of episodes so hitting a so-so issue wasn’t as big of a problem.  With so much time between the short seasons, I kind of hope for a bit more for each episode.

The casting is all over the place.  Sometimes they bring in stars and sometimes they keep the shows a bit more low-key.  Tales from the Crypt always brought in big stars and kind of based the shows around them (often playing with their image or playing against their image).  While Creepshow doesn’t really do much of that, it could do it more.

All the ghouls are out to play!

The visuals like to play with the EC Horror comics.  The series sometimes goes animated (and has an entirely animated segment with “The Things in Oakwood’s Past”) and it gives a sense of nostalgia and classic horror while “A Dead Girl Named Sue” goes black-and-white as a tie-in to Night of the Living Dead.  I do like the look of the series and would even approve of a little more of the “Creep” in the episodes…but the Cryptkeeper from Tales from the Crypt might have already have claim on that style of host.

Creepshow continues to be ok, but it still underwhelms.  Creepshow—Season 3 like the previous seasons are reflexive and self-referencing which is good and builds loyalty (and hopefully will lead to the return of some classic characters like Fluffy).  I think there is a ton of potential and there are a lot of talented writers who could write short horror stories that would push the series a bit further.  Despite sometimes being down on it, I hope that Creepshow continues because I think it feels a void…I always look for the Creep’s return.
