Premium horror streaming streaming service Shudder has been absolutely slaying it this last year. With high profile releases like Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror and The Last Drive-In with Joe Bob Briggs making waves, the service’s original programming is looking better than ever. Now Shudder hopes to bring that spooky magic to a new slate of original podcasts. The service announced today an exciting trio of original podcasts, Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut, She Kills, and Visitations with Elijah Wood & Daniel Noah.
“We’re thrilled to be working with amazing talents like Eli Roth, Adrienne Barbeau, Elijah Wood and Daniel Noah, who have assembled an unprecedented collection of horror creators for this slate of podcasts,” said Craig Engler, Shudder’s General Manager. “They’ll be exploring timely topics, unpacking the history of the genre and pointing the way to its future by talking to the people who made horror it what it is today”.
Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut (Premieres February 22)
A companion to the television series Eli Roth’s History of Horror, this Shudder Original podcast features the full, uncut interviews that Eli Roth and his producers conducted for the show. These include hours of never-before-heard conversations between Roth and Horror Icons Stephen King, Rob Zombie, and Bruce Campbell among others.
All episodes of Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut podcast will be made available on Shudder on Friday, February 22, exclusively for its members. Episode 1, featuring Roth’s complete conversation with Stephen King, will be made available the same day to non-members on Apple Podcasts and other platforms, where subsequent episodes will be released twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays
She Kills (Premiering March 1)
Hosted by actor, author and movie icon Adrienne Barbeau, She Kills is a Shudder original podcast all about the Women of horror and their experiences in the genre. Each episode pairs notable women—actors, directors, writers and journalists—in frank and revealing conversations about female representation and inclusion in genre filmmaking. Guests will include Anna Biller, Jennifer Tilly, and Dana Schwartz among other horror icons.
All ten episodes will be made available on Shudder on Friday, March 1, exclusively for its members. Episode 1, featuring a conversation with director Karyn Kusama, actor Emily Deschanel and self-described “actor, host, nerd” Clark Wolfe be made available to non-members on Apple Podcasts and other platforms, where subsequent episodes will be released twice-weekly on Mondays and Fridays.
Visitations with Elijah Wood & Daniel Noah (Coming Spring 2019)
SpectreVision founders Daniel Noah, Josh Waller, Lisa Whalen, and Elijah Wood have brought the world some game-changing horror films like A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and Mandy. Now the production studio invites listeners to join them as they launch a new podcast all about Horror films with the folks who make them.
“We’re big fans of the loose, conversational style of interview shows from the 1960s, and leapt at the chance to document intimate interactions with some of our friends and colleagues creating incredible work in genre and beyond,” said Elijah Wood and Daniel Noah.
The 10 episode original features casual conversations with visits with notable figures Ana Lily Amirpour, Taika Waititi, and John Landis among others. The podcast will premiere later this Spring at a date to be announced, with all episodes available at once on Shudder exclusively for its members, and individual episodes made available to non-members on Apple Podcasts and other platforms on a weekly basis.
