Hereís Fango's first look at CREEPSHOW 3, the anthology horror sequel. The bloody actress is Stephanie Pettee, who appears in the segment titled ďAlice.Ē The anthology was directed by Ana Clavell and James Dudelson, whose DAY OF THE DEAD 2: CONTAGIUM arrives October 18 from Anchor Bay.
The third installment of the George Romero/Stephen King-launched anthology series just completed principal photography on the backlot of Universal Studios. The film, which neither King nor Romero have anything to do with (same goes for original series producer Richard Rubinstein), follows the format of the 1982 first film and features five creepy new stories. (Derived from King/Romero leftovers, 1987ís CREEPSHOW 2 boasted only three tales).
Clavell and Dudelson are next slated to produce the upcoming DAY OF THE DEAD remake with Emmett/Furla Films. Emmett/Furla produced the recent AMITYVILLE HORROR, while their WICKER MAN redux goes before the cameras in Vancouver shortly with Nicolas Cage toplining. The FX on CREEPSHOW 3 were handled by Greg McDougall, an instructor at Pittsburghís Tom Savini Make-up School who contributed work to WAR OF THE WORLDS and SEED OF CHUCKY.
A 30-minute CREEPSHOW 3 teaser will debut at Santa Monicaís American Film Market in November. A homepage is now open and a site will be updated soon at www.creepshow3.com.
