One could argue that it’s Halloween year-round on Shudder, the go-to streaming app for all things horror, but our spines still enjoyed an extra tingle when we heard about its proper plans for spooky season. This year, Shudder will celebrate 61 days of Halloween, dropping eight new originals and exclusives between September 1 and October 31. Also on deck is a new The Last Drive-In special with Joe Bob Briggs, as well as the Ghoul Log’s anticipated return.


“We usually call October our ‘Super Bowl month’ but this year we’re starting on September 1st, so the 61 Days of Halloween will be our Super Bowl combined with Mardi Gras and Christmas,” said Shudder GM Craig Engler in a press release.

Richard Stanley’s Lovecraft adaptation, Color Out Of Space, kicks things off on September 1, with new content dropping weekly. Glenn Danzig’s gonzo Verotika, Timo Tjahjanto’s May The Devil Take You Too, and a five-film collection of Vincent Price classics are among the other highlights, though a press release promises even more surprises are on the way. Below, see a list of all the originals and exclusives announced thus far.
