The summer heatwaves are gone, the nights a drawing in, and Halloween is right around the corner. And with the season of the witch looming on the horizon, Shudder has unveiled its October horror treasure trove. And if you were hoping for a really good scare, you’re in for a real trick or treat!
The premium horror streamer is already packed to the brim with horrifying content. But now, the platform has revealed its full list of delightfully evil titles that will release throughout the month. And believe me, your Halloween watchlist is going to be bursting with gruesome delights.
Kicking off the nerve-shredding content drop on the 6th is the next installment in the infamous found footage anthology franchise V/H/S/85. Then, the all-new season of Creepshow will be terrifying us on Friday 13 October! What’s more, the new season will drop in its entirety meaning we can all look forward to a Friday the 13th binge night! Dropping on the same day is Brandon Christensen’s chilling original movie The Puppetman. This chilling horror follows a convicted killer who claims that an evil force controlling his body forced him to slaughter his victims.
Next up on the 20th is the unnerving original film, Night of the Hunted. When a woman stops at a remote gas station in the dead of night, she inadvertently becomes the target of a sadistic sniper. But can she survive the night as the bullets rain down on her? Kicking the horror up a notch on the 27th is Shudder’s first Spanish-language original film When Evil Lurks. Set in a remote village, two brothers find a demon-infected man just about to give birth to evil itself. But their interference could bring about the end of the world as they know it!
If that isn’t enough to have you hiding behind the sofa, a group of internet sleuths travel to the remote Carmichael Manor in Hell House LLC Origins: The Carmichael Manor on the 30th. But should they be looking for a terror that has been lurking in the shadows long before Hell House LLC? And finally, on Halloween night comes the brand new, star-studded fifth season of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula. Can the Brothers find the world’s next drag monster superstar?
Pretty cool line-up isn’t it? But don’t take my word for it. Grab the arm of your chair; move to the edge of your seat, and grab the cushions because Shudder’s Halloween watchlist will chill you to the bone!
