What’s On Shudder: May 2022

If you don’t get Shudder, well…there’s quite the library of movies to get into. Just check out what they have on in May! Plans start at under $5 a month and you can get the first week free when you visit Shudder.

There’s also the final episode of Cursed Films that’s about Cannibal Holocaust and Joe Bob is on every Friday night.

May 1

Eli Roth’s History of Horror Season 3: This season has the following topics: “Sequels (That Don’t Suck),” “Infections,” “Psychics,” “Apocalyptic Horror,” “Holiday Horror,” and “Mad Scientists.”

Broadcast Signal Intrusion: A video archivist becomes way too into pirate broadcasts and uncovering the dark conspiracy behind them.

Goodnight Mommy: Twin brothers welcome their mother home after reconstructive surgery but is it their mother?

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2: Can you imagine if Twitter was around when this movie came out? I love it so much, no matter what others think of it.

Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III: The trailer for this is so much better than the movie, but then again this movie gets better with each new sequel.

May 2

The Babadook: Less a horror movie and one about bad parenting. I guess if I can’t say anything nice, I shouldn’t say anything.

The Midnight Swim: Dr. Amelia Brooks’ three daughters travel home to settle her affairs after she disappears in Spirit Lake. What have I said about never going back home?

May 6

The Twin: A family moves from Finland from New York to deal with the grief of losing a son. Just reading that line I know that nothing works out for anyone in this movie.

May 9

Popcorn: One of my favorite weird movies, I’m so excited that this film has the potential to reach a larger audience on Shudder.

The Stylist: This modern slasher needs more eyes on it, because it gets so much right. This was one of my favorite films of 2020.

A Ghost Waits: Sometimes, when you try and clean a house of a ghost, you end up falling in love.

May 12

The Sadness: This Taiwan-shot zombie movie has been compared to the comic book Crossed and is said to be the roughest movie in some time. I’m looking forward to this!

May 16

Brain Damage: Welcome back to Shudder, Aylmer!

May 19

The Found Footage Phenomenon: As much as I dislike this style of movie, the documentary is pretty wonderful.

May 23

Get totally into the body horror of two Japanese blasts of maniac wildness: Tetsuo the Iron Man and Tetsuo the Body Hammer

May 24

The Prowler: In case you ever wondered what my favorite slasher is, it’s this movie.

May 26

A Banquet: This film may not totally stick the landing, but it has some big ideas and is aiming for the fences. Is a young girl inspired by the divine? Or has she lost her mind?

May 30

The Unseen: Teens are on the way to a music festival and end up in a scary house. In 1980, this was enough for us.

Demon Wind: Magic tricks, an evil house, a nonsensical plot — I own the t-shirt.

May 31

Kolobos: An experimental new way of making movies leads to actors dying for real.
