Celebrate Shudder’s Halfway to Halloween on AMC+
With the smell of Spring in the air, we’re starting to see those little green shoots reaching out from the dark earth. You could almost say they’re like zombie limbs reaching out into the sun. OK, maybe that’s a stretch – but not if you’re Shudder fans like us. We see things a certain way, and that’s why we’re already celebrating that special time of year, that midway point to our favorite holiday season: Halloween! In honor of that, we’ve put together a “Halfway to Halloween” collection of Shudder films and series, including some epic exclusives, new fan favorites, and, of course, some cult classics (or, slashics, as we like to say!)
Check out our selected highlights below and head over to AMC+ now to subscribe and view the Halfway to Halloween collection in full.
This fan-favorite series is back for a fifth season, and Slasher: Ripper takes the franchise back in time to the 19th century. There's a killer stalking the mean streets, but instead of targeting the poor and downtrodden like Jack the Ripper, The Widow is meting out justice against the rich and powerful. Fans will see some familiar faces this season, including Eric McCormack of Will & Grace fame, playing a ruthless tycoon named Basil Garvey. Watch Slasher: Ripper now on AMC+.
From Black (Premieres 4/28)
Anna Camp (True Blood) plays a recovering drug addict saddled by crushing guilt after the disappearance of her young son. When she’s presented with a bizarre offer to learn the truth about what happened all those years ago, she wants to set things right… but at what cost? This is a true horror film, and if the first look photos are any indication, we’re going to have a hard time sleeping after this one. Watch the film when it premieres April 28th.
