Joe Bob and Scare Package are back in town this December on Shudder, and so are a handful of other Original and Exclusive films. We will also see the return of the Holiday Ghoul Log, which sets the perfect scene for a
fear-filled festive party. Here’s what Shudder is bringing to the holiday table:
Joe Bob’s Ghoultide Get-Together – Joe Bob and The Last Drive-In gang are back for another holiday special! Join in on the holly jolly shenanigans as Joe Bob Briggs presents a double feature, alongside The Last Drive-In’s third annual charity auction. What will the two films be? Right now, that’s anyone’s guess. As we know from prior holiday specials, they may not even be Christmas films! The Ghoultide Get-Together will make its premiere on Shudder TV Friday, December 16, at 9:00 p.m. ET, and will be available on demand starting Sunday, December 18.
A Wounded Fawn (Shudder Original) – This dark tale introduces us to Meredith (Sarah Lind), a museum curator who has decided to start dating again. Unfortunately, her date turns out to be a serial killer (Josh Ruben of Scare Me). A planned romantic getaway goes from fun to terrifying.
Christmas Bloody Christmas (Shudder Original) – Tori is a record store owner who just wants to get her party on for Christmas Eve. But when the robotic Santa at the toy store goes all wonky and starts killing people, the party is off. Tori and Santa have to battle it out against a backdrop of heavy metal, drugs and violence. Christmas Bloody Christmas was written and directed by Joe Begos, who also directed the ultra violent V.F.W.
The Apology (Shudder Exclusive)- Recovering alcoholic Darlene (Anna Gunn) suffered the disappearance of her daughter 20 years ago, but is trying to get back into the swing of life. With the help of her friend Gretchen (Janeane Garofalo), Darlene is hosting the family Christmas. On Christmas Eve, Darlene’s ex-brother-in-law Jack shows up unexpectedly, and violence erupts when they are trapped by a winter storm.
Scare Package II: Rad Chad’s Revenge (Shudder Original)- As we all know, Rad Chad died in the first Scare Package film, but he’s not really finished playing his horror games yet. His funeral comes equipped with a series of death traps, and the funeral guests have to work together to survive. That means they have to remember and utilize the rules of horror. Four tales will be told: Welcome to the 90s, The Night He Came Back Again Part VI – The Night She Came Back, Special Edition and We’re So Dead.
Burial (Shudder Exclusive) –During the last few days of World War II, a group of soldiers removing Hitler’s remains from Germany are attacked by Nazi Wehrwolf fighters. Burial stars Charlotte Vega, Harriet Walter, Tom Felton, Dan Renton Skinner, Barry Ward and Bill Milner.
