The animated Creepshow episodes are scarier than the live-action ones
October 29th, 2020 under Joey King, Kiefer Sutherland, Shudder. [ Comments: none ]


In honor of Halloween, Shudder released two new episodes of Creepshow today for streaming. Due to the pandemic and filming restrictions, both of them are animated. Since the series comes from a comic book, the animation mimics that feel. A feeling that makes the stories even scarier because it leaves a lot up to the imagination. Getting lost in your thoughts can make even the creepiest of stories creepier.

In Survivor Type, Kiefer Sutherland goes from Designated Survivor to the lone survivor on an island. He was on a cruise ship that sunk in the middle of nowhere. No one knows that anyone made it out alive, so he is doing his best to survive. Even though there is no food on the island and parts of his body are decaying from infections. Since he is a doctor, he is doing the unthinkable to make sure he sees another day. However, how far will someone go to stay alive? That is what we will find out as Sutherland narrates what his character writes in his journal about his fight to live on in an impossible situation.

Joey King is the sole voice in Twittering from the Circus of the Dead. Unlike Sutherland, she tells her terrifying tale via Twitter. King is a teenager on a failed road trip with her parents and her brother. They planned on going skiing, but there was too much snow. Therefore, her father comes up with an alternative plan. He decided to take them to something called the Circus of Death. What is that? King will describe the unimaginable horror to us in a series of tweets that will send shivers down your spine.

Yesterday, Shudder announced that Marilyn Manson (Sons of Anarchy), Ali Larter (The Rookie), Iman Benson (BlackAF), Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator), C. Thomas Howell (Criminal Minds), Denise Crosby (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Breckin Meyer (Robot Chicken), Ted Raimi (The Evil Dead), Kevin Dillon (Entourage) and Eric Edelstein (We Bare Bears) will guest star on the second of the season of the show. Personally, I wish for the third one; they do every episode like these two. Seriously, you have to watch them. Once you do will be saying exactly what I am. It so much more horrifying when you don’t see everything that is happening. Because of that, you create from their thoughts what else is going on around them. I am still afraid to go to sleep after watching this Halloween special. It is that terrifying.

Shudder releases a Sex Demon in November
October 23rd, 2020 under Shudder. [ Comments: none ]


What can top 61 days of Halloween? How about a movie called Porno where the killer is a Sex Demon? Well, Thanksgiving is cumming early this year, thanks to Shudder. And since we won’t be able to be with our families because of COVID-19, we can watch the movie over and over again starting on November 24th.

Porno is described as, “When five repressed teen employees at a local movie theatre in a small Christian town discover a mysterious old film hidden in its basement, they unleash an alluring demon that is determined to give them a sex education…written in blood.” The film stars Robbie Tann, Katelyn Pearce, Evan Daves, Larry Saperstein, Jillian Mueller, Glen Stott, and it is directed by Keola Racela.

Aren’t you excited to watch this movie? What is a bigger temptation for you, the title or the plot? I say it is a titillating mixture that is topped off with horror. Who needs a Thanksgiving meal when you have all of this? Plus, it is less fattening?

Shudder’s Scare Me scared me
October 2nd, 2020 under Shudder. [ Comments: none ]


Shudder continues it 61 Days of Halloween with the movie Scare Me. A horror film that leaves the scares up to the imagination. Something that is rare these days, and welcomed by me.

Josh Ruben not only stars in the film, but he also wrote and directed it. Wearing all three hats worked out well for him. I cannot wait to see what he does next. Before we get to that, let’s talk about what he did now.

Fred (Ruben) is a wannabe writer who desperately needs to get away from his life. Therefore, he goes to a remote location in the woods, and he stays in a cabin. The area is not that remote because he runs into a best-selling author, Fanny (Aya Cash), who wrote a horror novel.

The two strike up a conversation, but go their separate ways when they are done. Later that night, there is a power outage, and she goes to his cabin so they can experience it together.

Since there is nothing else they can do, they each share different scary stories with each other. Each tale is more terrifying than the one before it, all leading to one final tale that will leave you with nightmares for days afterward.

There recently was a study out this week that people who watch horror movies do better with dealing with the pandemic. Therefore, watch Scare Me twice and call me in the morning. That will probably be 5a because you didn’t get any sleep after Scare Me scares you.

Shudder


Between Donald Trump and COVID-19, we have had more horror days than I count. However, Shudder is giving us an amount of days that I can count. They are giving us 61 days of horror starting on September 1st for Halloween. At least their 61 days are fiction, unlike the real ones we are experiencing.

The 61 days includes several movie exclusives, including Color Out of Space, Glenn Danzig’s Verotika, Scare Me, Spiral, The Cleansing Hour, The Mortuary Collection, 32 Malasana Street, and May the Devil Take You Too. We will also see the debut of A New Last Drive-In Special, NOS4A2’s second season, and a Ghoul Log for 2020.

Hallmark, Lifetime, and Up can have their two months of Christmas. This is my Christmas, and I prefer it.
