Written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero, 1982’s Creepshow is considered by many to be the be-all, end-all horror anthology, weaving together five terrifying tales that are individually as iconic and beloved as the overall film itself. Fans of the anthology will be happy to learn that a feature-length documentary is headed our way, and we’ve got the details today.
Directed by Michael Felsher, Just Desserts: The Making of Creepshow was originally made back in 2007, and attached to both a DVD and Blu-ray release of Creepshow that came out in the United Kingdom. To date, the doc has never been made available here in the States, but that will soon change thanks to a recent fundraising campaign and a partnership with Synapse Films.
In an e-mail sent out this week, Felsher revealed that the Creepshow documentary is headed to Blu-ray courtesy of Synapse, and though he didn’t mention a date, he did note that brand new special features will be included. He also provided us with our first look at the release art.
“There is going to be a formal announcement from the distributor of JUST DESSERTS coming very soon,” Felsher wrote. “However to try to make up for not being as pro-active with these updates as I should have been, I will give everyone here a sneak peak at the cover art, designed by Artist Joel Robinson. Also I can reveal that the distributor will be none other than Synapse Films. Please don’t deluge them with a lot of questions at this point though. They will be releasing a press release soon enough with additional information that should answer a lot of questions.”
