Shudder Is Bringing the Mayhem
Popular horror streaming service Shudder already impresses with its carefully curated catalog, offering titles that spotlight every possible sub-genre of horror, both current and classic alike. It’s a catalog that continues to grow, and Shudder shows no intentions of slowing down.
Especially with their plans for next month, which they’ve dubbed “Movie Mayhem.” Every weekday in May, Shudder will release a new title to their catalog. While they’ve kindly given us a tiny sneak peak of what’s to come, they remain tight-lipped on the rest. Which means you’ll have to log in or follow along on social media to discover what else they have in store. Though judging by the calendar below, they may have left clues.
Fresh off releasing a full list of new titles in April—including films found ONLY ON SHUDDER—the platform is now upping the ante as the ultimate destination for horror and genre fans. The films already announced for Movie Mayhem feature a full spectrum of horror programing with new American releases like We Are Still Here and The Midnight Swim sitting alongside foreign films such as the recent Mexico Barbaro and the undead classic Zombie.
