Today, in honor of the haunted holiday, you can call up Shudder’s Halloween Hotline, where Shudder’s head curator, Samuel Zimmerman, will provide you with personalized horror movie recommendations.

It’s official: Creepshow is a huge hit for Shudder, the horror streaming service owned by AMC Networks. The TV adaptation of the George A. Romero/Stephen King horror classic has been setting records since its September 26 premiere, which means it’s probably only a matter of time before a second season is announced. The series is the brainchild of special effects make-up artists and filmmaker Greg Nicotero and has been rolling out weekly with new tales of terror.

What’s New to Streaming in July 2019

Streaming in July 2019

Netflix gets all the attention, but there are other streaming services worth watching, too. As a new month dawns, we look beyond Netflix to see what’s streaming in July 2019. Amazon Prime Video will bring the vastly underrated neo-noir Under the Silver Lake to subscribers. Hulu has the incredible moon landing documentary Apollo 11. That same subject gets explored in a different way on HBO Now with First Man. And Shudder will be unleashing John Carpenter’s Prince of Darkness. These titles and more await you in July.

Critters a new binge trailer

The Critters are back in the Shudder Exclusive short-form series Critters: A New Binge. The series looks cheesy as hell – and that’s exactly as it should be. We’re talking old school Critters puppets running (or rolling, I guess) around, causing mayhem. Critters: A New Binge continues a story that started all the way back in 1986 with the first Critters movie. The film would spawn three sequels, including Critters 3, which featured a very young Leonardo DiCaprio going up against the mischievous monsters. Does DiCaprio appear in the new Shudder series? You’ll have to watch it to find out! (No, he doesn’t). Watch the Critters: A New Binge trailer below.

Creepshow TV series First Look

The Creepshow TV series has begun filming, and executive producer Greg Nicotero just provided the first look at the horrors that await us all. The image features the new and improved version of The Creep, the ghostly figure spotted at the beginning of the Creepshow movie. There, the “character” was little more than a puppet (that eventually turned into a cartoon). Here, it appears to be someone in great special effects make-up, or a realistic animatronic. In either case, I’m excited. See the Creepshow TV series first look below.
