NEW YORK, NY – November 10, 2020 – Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, today announced A Creepshow Holiday Special set to premiere December 18 exclusively on the horror streaming service in all its territories, as well as via the Shudder offering within the AMC+ bundle.
In the holiday themed, hour-long episode, “Shapeshifters Anonymous,” fearing he is a murderer, an anxious man searches for answers for his “unique condition” from an unusual support group. Starring Anna Camp (Pitch Perfect) and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project), the special is written and directed by Creepshow showrunner Greg Nicotero, based on a short story by J.A. Konrath (Last Call).
“The Spirit of Christmas is alive and well in true Creepshow fashion,” said Nicotero. “Reimagining how we look at the holidays and Santa Claus with an outrageous ensemble cast, a myriad of creepy crawlies and a few thrills and chills shouldn’t be missed.”
“This year has been Shudder’s biggest and best yet, and we wanted to thank our million-plus members with one last surprise. Greg Nicotero gift-wrapped the perfect present, an irreverent Christmas-themed Creepshow packed with humor, heart and gore galore,” said Craig Engler, Shudder’s General Manager.
