Shudder has busted out the details on their November schedule, and right out of the gate they are bringing us holiday horror that will give you the chills.
Anna and the Apocalypse – If you watch no other film on Shudder in November, watch this one! High school student Anna has just broken the news to her Dad that he is not going to college right after graduation. The two argue, but all of that pales in comparison to the fact that zombies are loose in Little Haven. Anna and her best buds will have to fight off deadly snowmen, elves and even Santa…while singing and dancing! I know that all sounds silly, but this film has it all; blood and gore, a great, heart-felt story and some topnotch singing and dancing. It’s delightful and fun.
To All A Good Night – Two years ago, a student at The Calvin Finishing School for Girls was accidently pushed from a balcony and died. Now it’s Christmas vacation, and the school is closing up for the holiday, so only a handful of students and the house mother remain. Or, so they think.
Silent Night Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out – At the end of SNDN2, Ricky was shot by police, and now he has been in a coma for six years. Weird Dr. Newbury wants to converse with him, so he enlists the help of blind clairvoyant Laura.
Shudder is adding a handful of the Silent Night Deadly Night films in November.
Silent Night Deadly Night 4: The Initiation – When a girl is set on fire and tossed from a tall building in LA, a reporter investigates the story. She finds herself wrapped up in cult-like sorority that wants to initiate her.
Silent Night Deadly Night 5: The Toymaker – Evil Joe Petto and his son Pino build deadly toys, with which they terrorize the townspeople. When Sarah’s husband is killed by one of the sinister toys, she and her son Derek become determined to end the toymakers reign of terror.
Silent Night – A killer wearing a Santa suit starts murdering people he marks on his naughty list. Sheriff Cooper wants to stop the sinister Santa so the annual Christmas Parade can go on as usual.
Creepshow – George Romero and Stephen King brought us this classic comic-style horror anthology film in 1982. Five different horrifying stories are told, with a top notch cast including Adrienne Barbeau, Leslie Nielsen, Ed Harris and Hal Holbrook. Trigger Warning: There are roaches. So many roaches.
Alone in the Dark – When a neighborhood loses power, the residents of a local mental institution escape and decide to track down their doctor. Jack Palance and Martin Landau play two of the maniacs.
Satan’s Slaves: Communion (Also available on Shudder Canada, UK, Ireland, New Zealand and Australia) – In this sequel to the Shudder Original Satan’s Slaves, a family seeks refuge after escaping a dangerous cult, but they find out the rundown building they are living in is just as dangerous. This was the first Indonesian film shot using IMAX, and it comes to us from writer-director Joko Anwar, who brought us the terrifying Shudder Original Impetigore.
Evil Dead Trap – Nami is a tv show host who asks her viewers to send her their home movies. When she receives what appears to be a snuff film, she rounds up a crew to investigate the abandoned factory where the film was recorded. Murder happens.
Evil Dead Trap 2 – There is a killer roaming the streets in Japan, mutilating young women. While Emi covers the mutilations as a news reporter, her girlfriend Aki begins seeing a child-like ghost, and dark secrets are uncovered..
Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell – In this Japanese cult favorite, a body builder and his ex-girlfriend research a haunted house. When they go in person to investigate the house, they are trapped and find themselves being hunted by a ghost. This will be the first ever North American release (in any format) of Bloody Muscle Body Builder in Hell.
Mandrake (Shudder Original) – Cathy Madden is a probation officer who has been given the assignment of helping a very notorious killer known as “Bloody” Mary ease back into the world after spending the last 20 years in prison. While Cathy really wants to help rehabilitate Mary, even she is suspicious when two children go missing near the farm where Mary lives.
Slash/Back (Shudder Exclusive) – Maika and her friends in the village of Pangnirtung are expecting to enjoy their summer break from school, but an alien invasion ruins their plans. The teens become surprisingly resourceful, using their knowledge of horror movies and weapons of their own creations to save their hometown.
Dr. Tarr’s Torture Dungeon – While investigating the very strange behavior of Dr. Tarr, a man finds the doc’s torture dungeon, a secluded asylum headed up by Tarr. In the asylum, innocent people are tortured, chained and placed in glass containers, then made to participate in horrible games.
The Last Broadcast – In this 1990s found footage-style film, four men navigate the New Jersey Pine Barrens live on camera to investigate the legend of the Jersey Devil. Only one returns, and the other three are found slaughtered. A year later, filmmaker David Leigh launches his own investigation in an effort to prove that the survivor is innocent.
Sweetie, You Won’t Believe It – A man decides to go on a trip with his friends in an effort to get away from his pregnant wife for a few days. When the friends happen upon a mob hit in the woods, they end up on a violent adventure they hadn’t planned.
Blood Relatives (Shudder Original) – Francis is a Yiddish vampire who just happens to be 115 years old (though he looks like he is in his 30s). He has mostly stayed to himself over the years, travelling through American in a beat up muscle car. All of that changes when a teenager named Jane shows up, claiming that she is his daughter. Since she has her Daddy’s fangs, he believes her, and a father-daughter road trip seems appropriate.
