Shudder’s ‘Creepshow: Season 3’ Coming to DVD, Blu-ray Disc on Dec. 6

RLJE Films has picked up select rights to the third season of horror series “Creepshow” from sister AMC Networks streaming service Shudder.

The six-episode season, featuring 12 separate stories, will be released on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on Dec. 6.

Creepshow: Season 3 episodes are directed by Rusty Cundieff, Greg Nicotero, Joe Lynch, Jeffrey F. January, John Harrison and Axelle Carolyn. The series stars Ali Larter, Justin Long, Anna Camp, and Ethan Embry. Both the DVD and the Blu-ray Disc editions carry a suggested retail price of $34.97.

“Creepshow” is an anthology series based on the 1982 horror comedy classic. A comic book comes to life in a series of vignettes, exploring terrors ranging from murder, creatures, monsters, and delusions to the supernatural and unexplainable. 

Bonus features include a comic art booklet, behind-the-scenes footage, a photo gallery, and a Comic Con panel discussion with Greg Nicotero, Mattie Do, Rusty Cundieff, Michael Rooker, and James Remar, moderated by Entertainment Weekly’s Clark Collis.

The Shudder original series “Creepshow” returns with a second season consisting of five new episodes, an animated special and a holiday special.

The anthology-style episodes offer two stories each, except for the season finale, which consists of one single story — “Night of the Living Late Show,” a tribute to classic horror films in which Justin Long plays a man who invents a VR device that allows him to insert himself into his favorite movies. The hourlong Christmas special also presents a single story.

Other highlights include “The Right Snuff,” in which an unhinged astronaut who dreams of surpassing his father’s legacy jeopardizes a meeting with alien life; and “Model Kid,” another vintage-movie tribute in which a kid uses his love of scary movie monster toys to cope with an abusive uncle.

The show’s quaint production values evoke the feeling of 1950s ‘B’-movies, with retro-style practical effects and cheesy-looking monsters.

The Blu-ray also includes several behind-the-scenes featurettes, a WonderCon@Home interview with producer Greg Nicotero and photo galleries, and comes with a nifty comic-book-style episode guide.
