With Halloween only a matter of weeks away, Shudder is playing it surprisingly quiet, with only a handful of older titles, including the return of Lamberto Bava’s Demons and Demons 2. But the month’s highlight, without a doubt, is the continued weekly drop of episodes from its entertaining new Creepshow reboot.
