Shudder has shown no signs of slowing down in providing quality content since the horror streaming service came into its own. In July, Shudder premiered the extremely-successful The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs and also announced a forthcoming Creepshow series, which will be created by horror veteran Greg Nicotero. Nicotero is one of the creative minds behind AMC’s The Walking Dead.

Shudder is owned by AMC and offers horror fans a mix of horror classics old and new, as well as being home to a ton of exclusive content including the independent horror film Let Me Make You A Martyr, which stars rocker Marilyn Manson. Other notable Shudder exclusives include Primal Screen, Sam Was Here, We Are The Flesh, and the recently added Todd and the Book of Pure Evil.
Horror is currently experiencing a rennaisance or sorts, performing notably well both in terms of critical acclaim and box office performance. Films like Hereditary, It Follows, The Babadook, and The Witch are garnering huge praise from critics for their boldness, artistic approaches, and creative concepts. While horror adaptations like Stephen King’s IT, alongside original horror films like A Quiet Place, are keeping executives happy in exceeding expectations and becoming some of the highest grossing films of the year.
A number of horror films are scheduled to be released in 2019, many of which are Stephen King adaptations.
