This isn’t an ad — we just really dig watching Shudder. After all, there are tons of great movies, all focused on the horror genre, and this month may be one of the most exciting the service has provided.
Here’s what’s playing!
- The Blood on Satan’s Claw: This month is packed with folk horror and there’s nothing better than this British freakout!
- Witchfinder General: If you’ve only seen Vincent Price play over-the-top roles, then check this one out. It’s one of my absolute favorite movies and has a tremendous influence on the world of doom metal too.
- The Wicker Man: Honestly, if you only watch two folk horror movies, January’s first day has everything you need.
- Sinister: I usually dislike everything made past the 80s, so trust me when I say that this 2012 film is worthwhile and packed with darkness.
- Lake Mungo
- Eve’s Bayou
- Double Warhol craziness! That’s right — Blood for Dracula and Flesh for Frankenstein are on Shudder today.
- If you haven’t been purchasing Arrow Video’s American Horror Project, you can check out all six of the films today! There’s the folky doom of Dark August, the sinister faith healing of Dream No Evil, the carny terror Malatesta’s Carnival of Blood, the fabulous bleakness of The Child, the eerieness of The Premonition and the unstoppable darkness of The Witch Who Came from the Sea.
- Vinegar Syndrome’s Homegrown Horror box set is now available on Shudder! Check out the near-indescribable Beyond Dream’s Door, Fatal Exam and Winterbeast.
- For the Sake of Vicious: A dark home invasion story that’s exclusive to Shudder.
- If you haven’t purchased Severin’s Woodlands Dark and Days Bewitched, Shudder not only has the doc — look for an expanded review posted soon — but several of the movies that were on the All the Haunts Be Ours set, including Il Demonio, Alison’s Birthday, Leptricia, Clearcit, Wilzcyzca, Lake of the Dead, Tilbury, Lokis, Edge of the Knife and Eyes of Fire.
- The Runner: Check out this movie by Boy Harsher, which is also their new album.
- Etheria season 3: A compendium of female-created horror well worth your eyes.
- The Last Thing Mary Saw
- The Last Matinee: Influenced by giallo and slashers, this is another interesting pick up for Shudder.
- Boris Karloff: The Man Behind the Monster: A documentary on one of the original horror film heroes.
There are also new episodes of A Discovery of Witches to watch.
