Shudder revealed the trailer for its upcoming horror anthology series Creepshowat San Diego Comic-Con on Friday, and it looks like it's putting the fun back in horror.

The six-episode anthology is based on the iconic 1982 film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero and comes from Greg Nicotero, executive producer and special effects maestro for The Walking Dead. It will feature a dozen shorts from high-profile horror writers and directors like writer Joe Hill (Stephen King's son, who as a boy appeared in the original Creepshow), director Roxane Benjamin, and writer-director Rob Schrab, whose segment "Bad Wolf Down" is about Nazis versus werewolves.
