Season 2 of ‘Creepshow’ is off to a groovy start

Be careful what you wish for…

Creepshow season two is finally here and it begins with a pair of strong episodes. The first season was incredibly popular and filled with memorable moments. That was great for fans of the show, but it also meant the second season would have a lot to live up to. If the first two episodes are any indication, fans from the debut season have nothing to worry about.

The premiere gets off to a start that befits the iconic horror franchise. “Model Kid” focuses on a young boy who loves horror movies of the past. One of the charms of Creepshow is its attention and love it gives to genre classics. “Public Television of the Dead” is the more fun of the two. It also pays homage to a familiar favorite. As gory as it is, it is sure to bring a smile to many longtime horror fans’ faces.

The second episode goes in a slightly different direction. “Dead and Breakfast” is about a bed and breakfast on the surface. The story tackles themes of mental illness and identity. It is lighthearted, but also has an air of sadness. “Pesticide” may be the most sinister story of the early part of the season. It is a dark story filled with the normal Creepshow flourishes.

Even the most popular television shows have to make sure to open strong when they return. The first two episodes of Creepshow are a great start for the new season. Filled with black humor, scary storytelling, and the Creep, the show looks like it will continue to please its fans.

Creepshow returns to Shudder for Season 2 on April 1.
