Stephen King and George A. Romero’s iconic 1982 film, Creepshow, will rise from the dead in its new reboot, debuting this September on Shudder.

The streaming service revealed the trailer for the six-episode anthology series at San Diego Comic-Con on Friday. The reboot comes from The Walking Dead executive producer Greg Nicotero, who helped direct select episodes.

The first season will feature segments based on stories by award-winning and acclaimed writers, including “By the Silver Water of Lake Champlain” by Joe Hill, “The Companion” by Joe R. Lansdale, Kasey Lansdale and Keith Lansdale, “The Finger” by David J. Schow and “Lydia Layne’s Better Half” by John Harrison and Nicotero.

The show’s premiere episode will feature the Stephen King story “Gray Matter,” adapted by Byron Willinger and Philip de Blasi (The Commuter), and “House of the Head,” written by Josh Malerman (Bird Box) and directed by John Harrison (Book of Blood, Tales from the Crypt).

Creepshow stars David Arquette, Adrienne Barbeau, Tobin Bell, Big Boi, Jeffrey Combs, Kid Cudi, Bruce Davison, Giancarlo Esposito, Dana Gould, Tricia Helfer and DJ Qualls.
