A Creepshow Holiday Special

A Creepshow Holiday Special: Review – Returning to make your holidays full of frights to remember is A Creepshow Holiday Special. When Weston (Adam Pally) starts to believe that he’s going through some metaphysical changes, he doesn’t know where to turn. Eventually though he finds a group that call themselves Shapeshifters Anonymous, led by Irena (Anna Camp).

When he settles down into the support group, he starts to learn about the many different animals that the members can turn into and he’s quite surprised by the range. However, Weston believes that he can turn into a wolf, the fiercest creature of all the therianthrope and as he gets to know the rest of the group better, he’s surprised to learn that the holidays are the most frightful time of the year.

Based on a short story by J. A. Konrath, Shapeshifters Anonymous is this years Creepshow Holiday Special written and directed by showrunner, Greg Nicotero. After the previous animated special, it may seem that this year’s Creepshow offerings have been scarce, but the holiday special comes around just in time and exclusive to Shudder.

In an hour long special that focuses on one story, the jolly people at Creepshow must have decided to end the year with a laugh as Shapeshifters Anonymous is a hilarious Christmas tale that places its tongue firmly in its cheek.

For all those who may not be as hopeful about the holidays and for those who never saw the appeal, then A Creepshow Holiday Special is a gift just for you.

Not afraid to showcase Nicotero’s years of experience with special effects, A Creepshow Holiday Special doesn’t hold back just because it’s the season of good will. Fans of horror, Creepshow and Nicotero himself will laugh at the knowingly insane lore that surrounds the shapeshifters and be consistently amazed by the effects the Nicotero and his team can conjure up.

Pally gives a fine performance as a man with very little options left and Camp brings a sweet charm to her school teacher turned man eater while she talks about not really caring about who she kills. Once again Creepshow delivers what you need when Santa couldn’t.

Joel found out that he had a talent for absorbing film trivia at a young age. Ever since then he has probably watched more films than the average human being, not because he has no filter but because it’s one of the most enjoyable, fulfilling and enriching experiences that a person can have. He also has a weak spot for bad sci-fi/horror movies because he is a huge geek and doesn’t care who knows it.
