Expand your palettes, you turds!!!
Brutal hard edged pulp.
I’m not one to complain about what shudder acquires, Shudder has great taste. But I would like to more familiar horror films or at least slashers/paranormal films that are rare to come across on streaming platforms. It gets tiring seeing the new releases and not being excited about it.
Go Shudder GO! MORE OF THIS KIND OF STUFF!
C'mon, Shudder!! Please add something non Asian or something I haven't seen already 10 times. This is getting boring.
