Creepshow: Twittering from the Circus of the Dead

Melanie was honored to write the teleplay for the episode “Twittering from the Circus of the Dead,” starring Joey King and based on the short story by one of her favorite authors, Joe Hill.

Told in Twitter style, Blake (played by Joey King) tweets about her boring family road trip when they mistakenly end up at the mysterious Circus of the Dead. Things aren’t boring for long as she discovers the acts are all too real. (Watch closely for a few cartoon cameos, including Melanie!)


Creepshow: Sibling Rivalry

Melanie was excited to bring vampires into the Creepshow world with her episode “Sibling Rivalry,” starring Molly Ringwald.

Convinced that her brother is trying to kill her, Lola seeks help from her school guidance counselor (Molly Ringwald) only to find her increasingly skeptical. As she attempts to piece the story together, she faces a dark truth. Directed by Tales From the Hood‘s Rusty Cundief, Sibling Rivalry is packed with suspense, humor, and gore.

“Sibling Rivalry is a quick-witted, but subtle social commentary that speaks to young adult horror as it broadens the Creepshow universe.”
