Titan Books is excited to partner with newly launched AMC Networks Publishing for Shudder’s Creepshow: From Script to Scream, an official behind-the-scenes book exploring the spine-tingling stories and alluring talent behind Creepshow, Showrunner’s hit anthology series, features Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) and produced by Cartel Entertainment, the studio behind the TV series.
With a foreword by legendary storyteller Stephen King and an afterword by horror fan Kirk Hammett, lead guitarist for Metallica, Creepshow: From Script to Scream (October 25, 2022) delves deep into the captivating origins, gripping development, provocative production and… eerie special effects on the TV show.
The book was written by Dennis L. Prince, designed by John J. Hill, edited by Meredith Borders and co-produced by Julia Hobgood. The deal was brokered by Striker Entertainment.
“I grew up wearing out my fingertips by flipping through books on the making of my favorite movies,” Nicotero said. “I was hungry to learn the behind-the-scenes secrets. So excited to share a glimpse into the making of this epic show!”
The book also includes brand new comic book chapter openings and a full-scale illustrated poster that reveals the magic and mayhem that makes Creepshow such terribly great fun. That standard edition The ubiquitous books will feature a brand new cover by Gary Pullin, while the Exclusive edition only available through AMCNP.com will feature a cover of Sanjulian.
“This packed behind-the-scenes book of Creepshow is perfect for fans of the show and anyone interested in horror entertainment as well as aspiring filmmakers and FX artists,” said Mike Zagari, head of AMC Networks Publishing. “The collaboration between Greg Nicotero, the cast and crew of the Creepshow series, serviced by Monster Agency Productions, Stephen King, Kirk Hammett, the George A. Romero Foundation and many other talented individuals has exceeded all expectations!”
Touted as “an irresistibly macabre package” (Slant Magazine) and “an undeniable love letter to all generations of horror fans” (CBR), Creepshow was one of Shudder’s most-watched shows for three seasons. While the book focuses on the television show, it also includes images and anecdotes from the original Creepshow film, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this November.
