Creepshow has brought more scares and set new records at AMC’s horror streaming service, Shudder.
Shudder is reporting that 54% of its subscribers have viewed an episode since its September 26 premiere.
Shudder also says that the first episode had more minutes streamed in its opening weekend than any title in the service’s history.
The series is also bringing in record numbers of new Shudder members, so far delivering the 14 best subscriber acquisition days in Shudder history and 21 of the top 25 days.
“Creepshow is a breakout series that’s hit the trifecta for streaming services: Shudder members love it, critics love it and it’s driving record numbers of new subscribers,” said Shudder GM Craig Engler. “Greg Nicotero and his team have delivered an amazing show that honors the original movie by George A. Romero and Stephen King while forging an identity that’s uniquely its own.”
Creepshow is an anthology series based on the film franchise of the same name inspired by the Tales from the Crypt, Vault of Horror and The Haunt of Fear by EC Comics. The original film was a collaboration between Stephen King and horror icon George Romero.
Episode five of the series – “Night of the Paw” / “Times is Tough in Musky Holler” debuts tomorrow.
