Shudder: Horror streaming for March, Joe Bob Briggs series and more!


Each month, Shudder adds more new horror than other streaming services, but they are upping the ante for March! This month will bring the return of Joe Bob Briggs AND a new podcast.

March 1:

Shudder Original Podcast SHE KILLS – This podcast, hosted by the iconic Adrienne Barbeau (The Fog, Creepshow), features conversations with notable women in horror, including actresses Barbara Crampton, Jennifer Tilly and Dee Wallace. Critics and writers, as well as other horror mavens will also be interviewed.

All ten episodes will be available to Shudder members on March 1, with the first episode now available to non-members on podcast apps. Subsequent episodes will be released each week on Mondays and Fridays.

I listened to the first episode this morning, and I really enjoyed it. I will definitely continue to listen.

Army of Darkness –  Our favorite guy with a chainsaw goes back to the Middle Ages to lay waste to an army of Deadites.

The ‘Burbs –  In this 80’s favorite, Tom Hanks convinces his neighbors that a family who just moved in are up to evil. The ‘Burbs was directed by Joe Dante, who also directed Gremlins. Speaking of which…

Gremlins – 1984’s surprisingly dark classic introduced us to Gizmo the adorable mogwai. When Billy’s father gives him Gizmo as a gift, Billy fails to follow the important mogwai rules: no water, no bright lights, no food after midnight. As a result, one furry little mogwai turns into many evil “gremlins.”

Gremlins 2: The New Batch – The sequel to Gremlins was also directed by Dante, with actors Zach Galligan and Phoebe Cates returning as well. When Gizmo’s owner dies, Gizmo is studied by scientists. After he’s exposed to water, multiple gremlins are spawned, and begin wreaking havoc.

Jacob’s Ladder – Tim Robbins plays a Vietnam vet mourning the death of his son. Experiencing hallucinations and dreams, Jacob discovers that many of his former platoon members are having the same problems.

Let’s Scare Jessica to Death – In this trippy 1971 movie, Jessica has just been released after a stay in a mental institution. She and her husband buy a beat-up farmhouse in Connecticut, where Jessica begins to see things and have some unsettling experiences. Is she losing her sanity, or are these horrible things really happening?

Orphan – When Kate and John lose their unborn child, they adopt a 9-year-old Russian girl named Esther. Although everything is good at first, Esther starts to display some disturbing behavior and knows things that a child should not. This movie features one of the most disturbing reveals that I have ever seen!

The Prophecy – Christopher Walken stars as the angel Gabriel, in search of an evil soul on earth to end the war in Heaven. The Prophecy also features Elias Koteas, Virginia Madsen, Eric Stoltz and Viggo Mortensen.

March 4:

Here Comes the Devil – In this 2012 Mexican horror film, two children go into a cave and don’t come out. The next day, they are found and returned to their parents, but something is not right, and the parents start to believe there is something inhuman involved.

Kiss of the Damned – A female vampire named Djuna and a human man fall in love, but their relationship is threatened when Djuna’s crazed sister shows up.

The Queen of Hollywood Blvd – In this L.A. noir-style film, a former mob connection threatens Mary on her 60th birthday. He has kidnapped her son, and says he will kill him unless Mary does a job for him.

March 7:

Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich – The 13th movie in the Puppet Master franchise is a reboot starring Thomas Lennon (Reno 911!), Kennedy Summers, and the legendary Barbara Crampton. Recovering from a divorce, Edgar goes back to the house he grew up in and finds a scary puppet in his brother’s old bedroom. When he and some friends go to a convention to sell the puppet, all of the puppets there come to life and the blood starts flowing.

March 11:

Cheap Thrills – Down-on-his-luck Craig goes to a bar to drown his sorrows and runs into an old high school buddy, Vince. The pals are approached by a rich couple who offer Craig and Vince money in exchange for completing increasingly disturbing dares for their entertainment.

March 18:

The Collector – Josh Stewart plays Arkin, a desperate ex-con who breaks into a home, not knowing that a serial killer has set up numerous traps.  When it finally appears he has figured out a way to escape, he goes back after seeing the home owners’ little girl is still in the house. This is a violent, intense movie, originally pitched as a prequel to the Saw movies. I really liked The Collector, and its sequel, The Collection.

Last Shift – A female rookie police officer is assigned the final shift at a police station that is about to be closed permanently. All alone, she sees a man with a bloody face, doors close on their own, she hears voices, and starts receiving mysterious phone calls.

Not Quite Hollywood: The Wild, Untold Story of Ozploitation! – This documentary about 1970s and ‘80s low-budget Australian cinema features interviews with over 80 actors, directors, screenwriters and producers about their experiences with “Ozploitation” films. Quentin Tarantino dedicated Kill Bill to the genre, and helped director Mark Hartley get this doc made.
