Coming in September: THE WRATH, HELL HOUSE LLC III: LAKE OF FIRE and CREEPSHOW
Despite what the calendar says, Halloween is not a month away. Halloween is happening right now, at least here on Shudder.
We have four exclusive new movies making their streaming premieres this month…but right now we’re only revealing two of them. (Stay tuned for the big reveal of the other two later in the month.)
The first is The Wrath (September 5), described by our curator as a “supernatural creeper” set in 14th century Korea. The film is a remake of an 80s South Korean horror film, Woman’s Wail, and screened at the Fantasia International Film Festival, who in comparing The Wrath to The Evil Dead, said it “recalls the glory days of VHS horror films, dishing out enough jump scares to rouse the dead.”
Then on September 19, get ready for Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire, the third and final (we think) installment of the hugely popular found footage franchise. From the marketing copy, “guests past and present will be forced to battle for their souls as all is revealed about the infamous Abaddon Hotel and the evil that dwells there.” Also there will be scary clown mannequins (see image, above). You have been warned.
Both The Wrath and HHLLC3:LOF will also be available on Shudder Canada and Shudder UK. Watch this space for updates on the other two TBA streaming exclusives.
A few notable additions are coming to the Shudder U.S. library this month, including Korean zombie epic Train to Busan (coming September 9, also to Shudder Canada), paired for the first time on any streaming service with the Shudder exclusive animated prequel, Seoul Station.
And last but so very, very far from least is the eagerly anticipated premiere of the Shudder Original Series Creepshow. Greg Nicotero & co. have been cooking up something gnarly for you, so you won’t want to miss the premiere both on demand and on Shudder’s LIVE stream Thursday, September 26 at 9pm ET/6pm PT*. The first episode features two segments, “Gray Matter,” based on a story by Stephen King, starring Giancarlo Esposito (!), Tobin Bell (!) and Adrienne Barbeau (!!) and directed by Nicotero, and “House of the Head” by Josh Malerman (who wrote Bird Box!) and directed by John Harrison, who was George A. Romero’s first assistant director on the original Creepshow film (John also wrote the iconic theme for the movie).
Here’s a look at the full list of what’s new this month on Shudder US, CA and UK. Happy 61 days of Halloween!
