Shudder has added some great movies for March, including a few highly-anticipated exclusives.
Shudder starts off the month with body horror film Replace – Kira suffers with a horrible disorder that causes her skin to flake away, but finds out that she can replace her own skin with that of other women. So, what’s a gal to do except find donors, willing or unwilling? Replace features Rebecca Forsythe and the legendary Barbara Crampton.
Ginger Snaps – Sisters Brigitte and Ginger are very close, and both have a morbid fascination with death. After Ginger is attacked by a werewolf, she begins to change in many ways, and her sister makes it her mission to find a cure.
The Dead Lands Season Finale – All eight episodes are now available to binge! The Maori are indigenous Polynesian people in New Zealand, and The Dead Lands is set in their imagined past. An undead warrior and a young woman named Mehe attempt to stop the dead from returning.
Luciferina – A 19-year-old novice nun travels to the jungle with a group of friends to find a mystical plant. Instead, she finds herself involved with the Devil. Luciferina is described as a bloody, violent film, and apparently features an unnerving sex scene featuring Beelzabub himself.
Frankenstein – Set in modern times, this update to the classic tale of Victor Frankenstein and his monster (known as “Adam”) is told from the monster’s point of view. Carrie-Anne Moss plays Elizabeth Frankenstein, and the iconic Tony Todd appears as Eddie, a blind, homeless man who befriends Adam.
The Room (Shudder Original) – In this French horror film, Matt and Kate move into a mansion in New Hampshire, where they find a bonus hidden room. This magical room can grant them any wish, but there is a catch: nothing created in the room can leave the house. The Room won Best Feature at both the Bucheon International and Strasbourg European Fantastic Film Festivals last year.
Red Christmas – Dee Wallace stars as Diane, the matriarch of a family gathered together to celebrate Christmas. When a strange man shows up, a disturbing story starts to emerge, and, this being a horror film, people start to die. There are a lot of creative kills in this film.
Howl – A train guard named Joe begins his shift one evening during a full moon. Soon, he and the train’s passengers are stranded in a remote forest due to a derailment. Making matters far worse, they are surrounded by a pack of werewolves. Several people involved in Howl also worked on the excellent film The Descent, so this may be worth a watch.
Satanic Panic (Shudder Exclusive) – Pizza delivery gal Sam has had a long day at work, and when a snobby rich man (Jerry O’Connell) stiffs her on a tip, she sneaks back into his home to confront him. Unfortunately, Sam has found the lair of a group of Satanists in search of a sacrificial virgin. Satanic Panic is described as a bloody horror/comedy.
Missions (Shudder Original series) — Season 2 is now available to binge! Five years after a group of astronauts return from their trip to Mars, the survivors are still recovering from the trauma they suffered. When they begin to have visions indicating that one of the lost team members may still be alive, they intend to go back to Mars.
Some Kind of Hate – Broody teenager Lincoln is constantly bullied at school, and when he fights back he is sent to a remote school for troubled kids. When the students there start harassing him, he accidentally summons the ghost of a teenage girl who was a victim of excessive bullying, and she imparts bloody revenge upon his tormentors.
Housewife – When she was a child, Holly’s mother killed her father and sister, and now that she is an adult, she continues to suffer with nightmares. A friend points her in the direction of a seminar, where she meets cult leader Bruce O’Hara.
Daniel Isn’t Real (Shudder Exclusive) – When college age Luke was a child, he witnessed the aftermath of a mass shooting, and began interacting with Daniel, who his family cannot see. His mother helps him “put away” his imaginary friend, but now Daniel is back, and begins to take over Luke’s mind and body. Daniel Isn’t Real was produced by Elijah Woods SpectreVision, and has won multiple film festival awards.
