True fans of Horror and the Macabre were thrilled when the Shudder Chanel released Creepshow in 2019. Staying true to the original magazine, the series serves as a continuation of the 1982 film of the same name and features seventeen episodes with two horror stories per episode.
But, let’s talk about the ‘zine. Creepshow Magazine stands out as a publication that delves deep into the chilling realm of horror. With its uniquely crafted content and dedication to all things ghoulish, this magazine has carved a sinister niche for itself in the world of pop horror culture.
Creepshow Magazine was conceived in the dark recesses of the horror genre. Born from the minds of devoted horror enthusiasts (many in their teens), the magazine emerged as a labor of love, dedicated to exploring the terrifying, the surreal, and the eerie. It serves as a haven for those who revel in the disturbing beauty found within the uncharted territories of horror. In many ways, there may never have been an X-files without Creepsho.
Creepshow features hauntingly evocative photography, eerie illustrations, and narratives that blur the line between reality and the supernatural. It’s a celebration of the grotesque, the supernatural, and the bizarre. Creepshow Magazine provides a canvas for artists to unleash their creativity without restraint, fully embracing the allure of the eerie and the unexplained.
One of the magazine’s defining characteristics is its commitment to unraveling the enigmatic and the unconventional. It invites readers on a journey through the occult, the paranormal, and the extraordinary.
However, Creepshow is more than a publication; it’s a thriving community. The magazine collaborates with artists, writers, and creative minds from around the world, fostering a sense of camaraderie among those who thrive in the darker corners of horror culture. This network enables the magazine to discover and showcase emerging talents who push the boundaries of the eerie and the supernatural.
In an age when print publications face significant challenges, Creepshow Magazine has defied the odds. While it initially emerged as a limited print edition magazine, it has successfully ventured into the digital realm, making its disturbing beauty accessible to a broader global audience. This transition has enabled it to connect with a vast readership passionate about true horror culture.
Why do we love Creepshow so much? It’s an invitation to enter the darkest depths of horror and the supernatural. It is a sanctuary for artists and enthusiasts who revel in the unusual and the disturbing. Whether in print or digital form, Creepshow Magazine continues to be a source of inspiration and connection for those who are more at home in the darkness than in the light. If you have a taste for the terrifying, the uncanny, and the bizarre, Creepshow is waiting for you.
