Shudder has announced their killer lineup that kicks off this October as part of their celebration for the best holiday of the year, Halloween. Their lineup includes new series, new releases, and a long list of frighting treats.
SHUDDER OCTOBER HIGHLIGHTS
JOHN CARPENTER’S HALLOWEEN (1978) — available Monday, October 1
Before you experience David Gordon Green’s 2018 Halloween—a direct sequel to Carpenter’s original set 40 years later—revisit the classic that popularized the “slasher” genre and introduced the world to Michael Myers.
TRUE HORROR – available Thursday, October 4
Each episode tells one real horror story, based on true testimonies, brought to life through straight-to-camera documentary interviews and beautifully scripted drama. The spine of each film is the gripping retrospective narrative of a series of traumatic events and horrifying happenings — inexplicable paranormal activity and weird ghostly goings-on — which happened to real, ordinary people. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE SERIES
CHANNEL ZERO: BUTCHER’S BLOCK – available Thursday, October 25
The third installment of the hit Creepypasta anthology series introduces Alice and Zoe Woods, sisters who have moved to a small town to start over—but instead encounter the hellish neighborhood of Butcher’s Block, home to sinister Joseph Peach and his eerily charismatic family. Directed by Arkasha Stevenson, starring Holland Roden, Olivia Luccardi, Rutger Hauer, Krisha Fairchild, and Brandon Scott. ONLY ON SHUDDER
