Horror icon Tom Savini is also joining the Shudder anthology series as an episode director. "There wouldn’t be a Creepshow without Tom Savini,” said showrunner Greg Nicotero. "His mark on the horror industry and unflinching approach to special effects makeup did more for the genre than anything since the invention of fake blood. Tom has always been a visionary and his love of cinema and making movies is felt in every frame of his episode. I’m honored to have my friend as a big part of the team."
