SHUDDER, the new premium streaming video service, backed by AMC Networks, has launched in the UK and Ireland. The service’s unique selection of titles makes it the only streaming service in the UK and Ireland dedicated to serving both casual and hard-core fans of high-quality horror and suspenseful entertainment.
SHUDDER is curated by world-class genre experts TIFF Midnight Madness programmer Colin Geddes and former Fangoria editor Sam Zimmerman, and will also host regular guest-curated seasons from respected genre filmmaking talent. The service, which launched in 2015 in the US, offers new premieres and exclusives every month with a wide library ranging from hard-to-find international and independent films to thrilling TV series, cult grindhouse classics and Hollywood blockbusters. SHUDDER offers a unique launch selection of 200+ titles, 80 per cent of which are not currently available on any of the larger UK subscription-based streaming platforms.
Exclusive premiere titles launching soon on the service include Dearest Sister (pictured above), a spine-tingling and politically-charged chiller from Laos’ first female filmmaker Mattie Do, which debuted at Fantastic Fest and screened at BFI London Film Festival; and Beyond the Walls, a classy and creepy French exclusive Shudder series starring Veerle Baetens and Geraldine Chaplin.
Upcoming exclusive premiere titles include long-awaited Japanese film-ghoul face-off Sadako Vs. Kayako; Rob Zombie’s horror thriller 31; We Go On, a thought-provoking supernatural drama from writer-directing team Andy Milton and Jesse Holland; Therapy from 16-year-old filmmaker Nathan Ambrosioni; and a collection of films from the stable of genre master Alex de la Iglesia including Shrew’s Nest (review here) which he produced and Witching and Bitching, which he directed.
In addition, SHUDDER hosts an expertly curated library of hard-to-find titles and genre gems including Donald Cammell’s White of the Eye and Jorg Buttgereit’s Nekromantik which appear only on SHUDDER alongside stone-cold classics from the Hammer vaults and, for the first time on a streaming service and exclusive to SHUDDER, Clive Barker’s iconic Hellraiser & Hellraiser 2.
