‘Creepshow’ Segments Ranked from Least to Most Chilling and Thrilling

     October 31, 2019


Shudder’s Creepshow just received its Season 2 renewal, but the entirety of Season 1 has yet to premiere. That’ll change tonight, Halloween night, as the Season 1 finale airs both on demand and on the Shudder TV live-stream at 9:00 pm ET/6:00 pm PT. We couldn’t wait for our Halloween treat. We went ahead and watched the Season 1 finale, which features two segments that are some of the creepiest and crawliest on the show to date: There’s the Paul Dini & Stephen Langford-scripted “Skincrawlers” as well as the Joe Hill short story adaptation ““By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain.”

But where do they rank among the 12 total segments? That’s what we’ve got for you below, a subjective rundown of the spine-tingling stories in order from least-to-most nerve-wracking. Make no mistake, there’s something to love in each and everyone one of these segments, be it the practical effects work on display, the incredible production value, or watching some of your favorite actors hamming it up. They’re all delights in the halls of horror; some are just better than others. Some spoilers will follow.

Shudder is available on all of your favorite devices and platforms, including Apple TV Channels. Nicotero’s Oscar, BAFTA and Emmy award-winning Make-up Effects studio KNB EFX GROUP will again serve as creature creators in Season 2.
