Shudder has announced their additions for June, which include familiar favorites and some new horror films as well, with an emphasis on werewolves.

June 1:

An American Werewolf in London – In this iconic comedy-horror film, two American friends (David Naughton and Griffin Dunne) are attacked by a werewolf while backpacking in England. Jack is killed, but as David later discovers, he has been bitten by the werewolf, and we all know what that means.

Ginger Snaps – We must be going with a theme here, because this is another horror/comdedy/werewolf film. This time, we meet Brigitte and Ginger, two sisters who share a love for the morbid. When Ginger is attacked by an animal, she starts to transform, her sister wants desperately to save her.

Ginger Snaps 2 – Brigitte is trying to avoid turning into a werewolf, and uses a flower called monkshood to help. When she over-uses the flower, she ends up in a rehab clinic.

The Howling – This 1981 horror film was directed by Joe Donte, and features Dee Wallace as Karen, a tv news anchor who is being stalked by a serial killer. After a close encounter with the killer leaves her with amnesia, she is sent to a countryside resort/treatment center, where she discovers that Eddie the serial killer is more than meets the eye.

The Howling II: Your Sister is a Werewolf – Ben goes to his sister’s funeral, and is informed that she was a werewolf. He is soon convinced to go to Transylvania to fight against Stirba, a werewolf queen.

June 5:

Calvaire – Marc is a traveling musician, who hits the road after performing at a nursing home shortly before Christmas. When his van breaks down in a deserted area, an innkeeper named Mr. Bartel takes him in. Bartel ends up taking Marc captive, and the singer must work out an escape plan.
