Remaking Creepshow: My Casting Choices

Welcome to Day 5!! Today will be my first remake article for Spooky Season! I’ve been wanting to do one on Creepshow for a very long time and I finally got around to it! Creepshow had one of the best horror movie casts I’ve ever seen, and picking a modern cast definitely wasn’t easy, but I hope you enjoy and if you want to see more, please check out my Remake Collection! (NOTE: the actors that played Cass Blaine, Mrs. Danvers, Billy’s Mom, and Richard Grantham didn’t have their ages on their profiles so I had to choose to either exclude them or guess their age ranges… I completely guessed. I did however have to exclude the character of Billy because I don’t know any modern child actors.) (REMINDER: this is just hypothetical fun! I love and respect everyone mentioned and this series isn’t meant to tear anyone down or be disrespectful!!)
