Welcome to another installment of 31 Days of Halloween! This is our chance to set the mood for the spookiest and scariest month of the year as we focus our attention on horror and Halloween fun. For the month of October we’ll be sharing various pieces of underappreciated scary books, comics, movies, and television to help keep you terrified and entertained all the way up to Halloween.
Do people actually complain about the lack of animated horror? Just in time to close out October and welcome in Halloween, streaming horror network Shudder has released a trailer for A Creepshow Animated Special. Creepshow is a huge hit for the channel and a Halloween special only seemed fitting for the Creep.

A Creepshow Animated Special features two stories directed by Creepshow showrunner Greg Nicotero, with animation 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.
A Creepshow Animated Special premieres Thursday October 29 on Shudder.
