The revival of Creepshow on Shudder has been a fun journey, and a long overdue one in this entertainment era of remakes, reboots and reimaginings. For peak horror television in the 80s and 90s, Creepshow and Tales from the Crypt rank high in the memories of many horror fans, making having premium cable the original “Must See TV”.
Season 2 contains five episodes, plus the the two bonus episodes A Creepshow Animated Special and A Creepshow Holiday Special. This isn’t a review of the episodes, but more of the quality and attention to detail of the blu-ray set. For this one, the visuals of the discs are bright and sharp, and the sound is balanced for an immersive experience (likely taking advantage of the technology of sound bars, which I’m still getting used to).
The extras, the featurettes on the Making Of “Night of the Living Late Show” are informative and fun, and the type of extras necessary to make a set like this a “must buy”. Honestly, my only nitpick is the complete absence of any commentary tracks. I’d be happy if there was at least one episode per season that had a loaded commentary track, and I would take one of those over 4 different photo galleries.
