THE CREEPSHOW AGAIN?
Creature Corner reports:
'When Anchor Bay released Creepshow 2 on DVD a few years back, a number of us ghouls sat around the tube to revisit a sequel that we only had dim memories of (well, some of us, at least) and was a follow-up to an anthology that many of us held close to our decrepit hearts. Suffice to say, our bout with the second Creep was a dismal one - the film just didn't hold up - but the experience didn't stifle one thought: What if a third Creepshow was made? There's no shortage of classic King mini-tales worthy of adaptation, so why not? Well, for one, Hollywood has shown no interest in doing big screen anthologies...
Don't bother telling that to Taurus Entertainment because I don't think they care. The production company has moved rather quickly on one property they own - Day of the Dead - with a sequel (Day of the Dead: Contagium) in the can and prepping for distribution. Now the Corner has learned from various sources that Jim Dudelson and the Taurus team are eyeing to take the Creepshow into trilogy territory by making a third film. How can this be? They own the rights. Many full moons ago we ran a piece in which Dudelson mentioned a Creepshow animated project, I guess since then their flirtations with the property has mutated into something much more ambitious. This latest development now disputes the rumblings Creature Corner has heard that Richard Rubinstein was looking to remake Creepshow.'
