Shudder has some lucky additions coming in March, including Spoonful of Sugar and The Blair Witch Project. Let’s take a look at what we will be able to stream next month on Shudder.

March 1:

Gretel and Hansel (2020) – In keeping with the original Brother Grimm tale, this is a dark retelling of the children’s story. Teenaged Gretel and her younger brother Hansel find refuge with a woman named Holda (played by Alice Krige), who is a witch.

March 2:

Spoonful of Sugar (Shudder Original) – Matt Donato of Slashfilm referred to this one as “bone-chilling, knee-buckling nastiness.” Millicent is a young woman hired to babysit little Johnny, who has every allergy under the sun.

March 9:

The Company of Wolves (1984) – Neil Jordan (The Crying Game, Interview with the Vampire) directed this very dark version of Little Red Riding Hood.

March 13:

Holidays (2016) – This horror anthology consists of eight short films related to different holidays. Each of the stories is dark and often icky. I mean…I don’t know how else to describe them, and “icky” seems apt.

March 17:

Leave (Shudder Original, also debuts on AMC+) – Hunter was discovered abandoned in a cemetery in New England as an infant. She was swaddled in cloth covered with dark symbols, a Wolf’s Cross pendant around her neck. Now an adult, Hunter sets out to discover who her parents really are, and why they abandoned her.

March 20:

Jack Be Nimble (1993) – Coming to us from New Zealand, Jack Be Nimble stars Alexis Arquette as Jack, who is abused by his adoptive parents. Jack runs away in hopes of finding his sister Dora while being pursued by his adoptive parents’ four daughters.

March 27:

After Blue (2022) – In the future, Katarzyna Buszowska (known as Kate Bush) lives on a post-Earth space colony known as After Blue. The colony is populated by only women, as all of the men have died, and Kate Bush is being hunted down by a woman named Roxy.

Ultra Pulpe (2018) – Bertrand Mandico (The Lost Boys and After Blue) wrote and directed this trippy film. As a film wraps filming, the director Joy and an actress named Apocalypse are ending their affair. As a parting gift, Joy shares five stories with the actress.

Shudder is adding some great stuff on the last day of March

March 31:

The Unheard (Shudder Original, also debuts on AMC+) – In this new film, a young deaf woman is going through some experimental treatments in an effort to restore her hearing. While she recovers at her family’s beach house, she begins to have suffer from hallucinations.

The Blair Witch Project  – Oh, how I love this iconic found footage film! While not the first found footage, it’s definitely the film that put the sub-genre on the movie map. Three young filmmakers set off in the woods of Burkittsville, Maryland to explore the legend of The Blair Witch, only to find themselves being stalked by someone (or something).

Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2Book of Shadows is best enjoyed as a standalone film, and comparisons to The Blair Witch Project hurt it when it was released. While it has some minor ties to the original story, it’s not really a traditional sequel. A group of people interested in the original film take a trip into the area where it was filmed, and begin to suffer the consequences.

The Manitou (1978) – In this body horror film, Karen (Susan Strasberg) is disturbed by a tumor that begins growing on her neck. At first, doctors believe it is a growing fetus, but the decision to remove the “tumor” brings about some violent supernatural events.

The Fog (1980) – Thankfully, this is the original John Carpenter film, and not its inferior remake! The coastal town of Antonio Bay in California is preparing to celebrate its 100th anniversary, not knowing that the town’s founders deliberately caused a ship to wreck so they could steal its gold. Things get dangerous when the spirits of the murdered man come back for revenge. This 1980 classic stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Adrienne Barbeau and Tom Atkins.

The Wicker Man (1973) – A detective travels to a remote island to investigate the disappearance of a young girl, and ends up in the middle of a pagan May Day ritual. If you liked Midsommar, you will most likely love The Wicker Man.

Next. Stephen King's The Boogeyman heading to theaters in June. dark
