Shudder’s Creepshow getting Blu-ray release

In a rare move, a streaming property is getting a hard copy release.

The first season of Shudder’s Creepshow anthology series will be released on 3-disk Blu-ray set on May 19th for $34.98 U.S.

Some of the special features of the Blu-ray edition include:

  • Cast and Crew Interviews
  • Behind the Scenes Footage
  • Creepshow S1 Easter Eggs Featurette
  • Audio Commentaries with Cast and Crew
  • Episode and Comic Art Photo Galleries
  • Comic Art Booklet

Based on the film franchise which teamed horror icons Stephen King with George A. Romero, the series had twelve episodes produced by Joe R. Lansdale, Josh Mallerman (Bird Box), John Skipp and Dori Miller, Christopher Buehlman, Paul Dini & Stephen Langford, John Esposito, David Schow, Bruce Jones and Rob Schrab.

Actress Adrienne Barbeau who starred in the original film also made a return.

“Creepshow is a breakout series that’s hit the trifecta for streaming services: Shudder members love it, critics love it and it’s driving record numbers of new subscribers,” said Shudder GM Craig Engler. “Greg Nicotero and his team have delivered an amazing show that honors the original movie by George A. Romero and Stephen King while forging an identity that’s uniquely its own.”

Shudder reported that the first episode had more minutes streamed in its opening weekend than any title in the service’s history.

The series is also brought in record numbers of new Shudder members delivering the 14 best subscriber acquisition days in Shudder history and 21 of the top 25 days.
