Shudder is Gearing Up for Halloween with New Content Every Week

Horror fans know that when it comes to streaming services, Shudder is a must have. Though it doesn’t host as many films as giants like Netflix and Amazon, it focuses exclusively on horror making it a far superior source for genre aficionados looking for the best of the best.

We’re getting word that Shudder is gearing up for Halloween by bringing fans new content every week leading up to October 31st. The best part is, the festivities kick off today! Check out the full scoop in the press release below.

(September 10, 2018, New York, N.Y.) – Shudder is all you need to get your fill of frights this Halloween season. With a new scary movie premiering every week, the leading premium streaming service for thriller, suspense, and horror kicks off the fun beginning September 10 and running through Halloween.

 “We’re taking Halloween to an unprecedented level this year with a killer lineup of seven original and exclusive films that starts with the breakout movie REVENGE and culminates with the shocking slasher SUMMER OF 84,” said Shudder General Manager Craig Engler.  “We’re also premiering the hit U.K. series True Horror, launching season 3 of Channel Zero and bringing back amazing classics like John Carpenter’s Halloween and a massive Hitchcock collection.”

 The season begins with Shudder’s VENGEANCE IS HERS collection on September 10. Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned, and the femme fatales of these films are no exception. Headlining the collection is REVENGE, a Shudder Original that delivers a razor-sharp feminist subversion of the revenge-thriller, available starting September 13.
