New on Shudder – June 2017

Published

on

AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder has announced its release slate for this month, and they’re bringing a little bit of everything to the table! You can see all titles below.

For more info visit the official Shudder website, “like” Shudder on Facebook, and follow Shudder on Twitter and Shudder on Instagram.

First up are the Shudder exclusives:

Noroi: The Curse – Exclusively on Shudder from 1st June
Paranormal expert and documentarian Masafumi Kobayashi sets his sights on uncovering the truth behind a string of seemingly unrelated paranormal incidents in Noroi: The Curse. Narratives twist and turn as Kobayashi and his cameraman Miyajima race to piece together one unusual death after another, only to be met with the same fate which they so fervently document, leaving only their footage behind.

Delving into the legend and ritualistic background of “Kagutaba”, Director Kôji Shiraishi (Sadako v Kayako) masterfully combines character storylines in a documentary format with suspenseful plot turns.

Primal Screen – Exclusively on Shudder from 8th June
Launching Shudder Originals, Shudder’s new original programming slate, comes Primal Screen, a chilling new horror documentary from genre favorite filmmaker Rodney Ascher (Room 237, The Nightmare).

Primal Screen explores how individuals are simultaneously attracted to and repelled by what scares them most. Rodney Ascher has created a singular hybrid of documentary and horror that explores the pop-culture artifacts that traumatized individuals in their youth and the effects it has had on their lives.

Among the Living – Exclusively on Shudder from 15th June
Written and directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, Among the Living is a French coming-of-age horror story that follows three boys realizing their average small town is not what it seems. Under the surface of a dusty film studio, they discover a horrific secret that puts their lives in the crosshairs of danger.

Show Pieces – Exclusively on Shudder from 29th June
From the mind of legendary writer Alan Moore (creator of Watchmen, V for Vendetta, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen) and acclaimed photographer and director Mitch Jenkins comes the multi-layered film anthology Show Pieces.

Set in the town of Northampton, UK, Show Pieces is the first work by Alan Moore written specifically for the screen and the first work to explore the bizarre world and characters that frequent an otherworldly gentlemen’s club. The five chapters of Show Pieces create a tapestry of madness, malevolence, and murderous misdeeds, intersecting to form an original, occult noir thriller with Alan Moore himself appearing in character on screen.

 

 

Now, here’s the rest!

House of 1000 Corpses
Rob Zombie’s directorial debut takes its lead from horror classics such as The Texas Chain Ssaw Massacre and turns the madness up to eleven.

Rigor Mortis
Visually striking and at times as witty as it is creepy, Juno Mak’s Hong Kong set horror is a brilliantly eclectic addition to the Asian supernatural genre.

Room 237
The perfect documentary for horror obsessives everywhere as filmmaker Rodney Ascher takes a compelling look at the hidden messages, symbols, interpretations, and theories behind Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.

The Devil’s Business
A straightforward job for two British hitmen takes a turn for the macabre in Sean Hogan’s stylish, occult horror.

Dead Snow 2
Bigger, bolder, and in even more bad taste than its predecessor, Dead Snow 2 grabs once again for the funny bone and sticks its tongue firmly in its undead Nazi cheek!

Thirst
Open Water… without the water! A car crash leaves two young couples fighting for their lives in the scorching desert heat.

Antiviral
A queasy and fascinating examination of sick celebrities and obsessive fans in which director Brandon Cronenberg gets inside viewers’ heads as well as under their skin.

The Eye Trilogy
Seeing might not be believing in The Pang Brothers’ supernatural chilling trilogy. Don’t look away.

The Bay
A gruesome, effective, and atmospheric eco-horror courtesy of the ever-eclectic Barry Levinson.

80’s Throwback EXPOSURE Gets Awesome Trailer and Poster

Published

on

Featuring practical effects-based creature designs and a special appearance by horror legend Lynn Lowry, Austin Snell’s Exposure is a throw-back horror experience in the vein of your favorite 70’s and 80’s classics.

And today we have the film’s trailer and poster for your viewing pleasure. You can check out the poster to the right and the trailer below along with some quotes from the film’s director, Austin Snell.

Exposure was self-financed within Sunrunner Films and filmed almost entirely on location in the beautiful city of Leadville, Colorado,” Snell said in a statement. “The production lived and slept in the cabin where the movie was shot, cooking their own meals and working together around the clock for three weeks. All of the effects were designed practically, including full-body creature suits.”

He continues: “It was old-school, independent horror filmmaking. Back in our home state of Kansas, the team finished off production by filming a cameo with horror icon Lynn Lowry. It was a sincere pleasure to work with Lynn, whose talents affected so many of the films and careers that inspired this very movie. She belongs in a film like this.”

What do you think of Adam Snell’s Exposure thus far? Make sure to let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

The film is directed by Austin Snell from a script written by Snell and Jake Jackson and stars Carmen Anello, Owen Lawless (Helltown), and Lynn Lowry (Shivers, The Crazies, I Drink Your Blood, Model Hunger). The film features special effects via Jake Jackson and is produced by Jackson, Snell, and Clayton Ashley.

Synopsis:

In an attempt to reconcile the problems in their relationship, Myra and James venture to an isolated cabin in the mountains. It is there they encounter an ancient evil that haunts the landscape, capable of turning people into deformed monsters. Not only will they be fighting for their relationship, they will be fighting for their lives.
