The pre-games continue, fiends! Horror streaming platform Shudder has just announced some big plans leading up to the Halloween Season.. and the party starts now.
“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.
Weekly new releases continue with HELL HOUSE LLC II: THE ABADDON HOTEL on September 20, CHANNEL ZERO: NO-END HOUSE on September 27, SATAN’S SLAVES and TRUE HORROR on October 4, TERRIFIED on October 11, WITCH IN THE WINDOW on October 18, and CHANNEL ZERO: BUTCHER’S BLOCK and SUMMER OF 84 on October 25.
Shudder also has a killer classics selection in October with THE HALLOWEEN COLLECTION, available October 1, featuring John Carpenter’s landmark film Halloween plus Halloween 4, Halloween 5, and Tobe Hooper’s legendary film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The very next day, Shudder delivers a treasure trove of tales from the master of suspense himself. THE ALFRED HITCHCOCK COLLECTION, debuting October 2, includes Psycho, Vertigo, Rear Window, The Birds, The Man Who Knew Too Much, Rope, and Shadow of a Doubt.
Umm. Yes. Yes to all that Hitchcock.
