31 Days of Halloween Shudder Viewing Guide

September 30, 2019

Every movie and series you’ll find on Shudder has been chosen with care by our team, led by Head Curator Samuel Zimmerman. But for Halloween, Sam has whipped up a special viewing list with a mix of new exclusives, essential classics and world-premiere Creepshow episodes guaranteed to keep your horror buzz going all month long.

Oct. 1 – The Taking of Deborah Logan

“Since its release just a few years ago, Adam Robitel’s The Taking of Deborah Logan has built a deserved reputation as a surprising, eerie new school gem. Now only on Shudder, kick off October with a real creeper.”

Oct. 2 — Viy

“The very first Soviet horror film is a treat full of old school movie tricks, a classical and colorful nightmare, and one of the great witch tales.”


Oct. 3 — Creepshow ep. 2: “Bad Wolf Down” + “The Finger”

Creepshow is back and every week throughout October, we’ve got the mischief and mayhem, the werewolves and scarecrows, the ghoulish just desserts of what makes Creepshow, well, Creepshow.”

Oct. 4 — The Furies

“Four words: Axe to the face.”

Oct. 5 — Belzebuth

“Dark and harrowing, Belzebuth is one of our favorite horror movies of 2019, one that will push you a little further and a little harder. And that’s what makes it so special.”


Oct. 6 — The Changeling

“Every week on this here list, you’ll find a pick perfect for each Sunday, haunting and atmospheric simmers to pair with the lights low and the early evening. First up: Peter Medak’s stone cold essential of haunted house cinema, The Changeling.”
