Creepshow may draw to a close this Halloween, but Shudder still has spooky treats to serve up this November, from horrifying martial arts action to cult classics from Stuart Gordon and Dario Argent.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Shudder UK in November 2019:
RE:BORN – 7th November
Toshiro, a former special forces operative, now lives a quiet life in the Japanese countryside. Despite his seemingly peaceful existence, Toshiro struggles to contain the destructive impulses that once made him the top soldier in an elite unit of killers. When his former commanding officer, the enigmatic Phantom (, comes out of the shadows seeking revenge, Toshiro goes on a kill-crazy rampage against a squad of ruthless assassins, with a dazzling display of close-quarters martial arts. Starring Tak (a.k.a. Tak Sakaguchi), Masaya Kato, Takumi Saitoh, Mariko Shinoda, directed by Yuji Shimomura. A Shudder exclusive.
A Bluebird in My Heart – 14th November
Danny, an ex-inmate in Belgium, is housebound in a small hotel with an electronic ankle bracelet as a condition for his parole. The hotel’s owner is more than willing to host former prisoners until they get back on their feet – she’s married to a convicted felon who is doing time and she knows how difficult it can be to re-enter society. She’s having a tough time raising on her own her daughter Clara, a diabolically beautiful teenager who is trying to get a bit too personal with Danny. He understands that the kid is looking for a father figure, but he has to help himself before he can help others. This hope for redemption is however soon shattered when Clara is assaulted, forcing Danny to face his old demons again. A Shudder exclusive, starring Rolland Moller, Lola Le Lann, Veerle Baetens, directed by Jérémie Guez.
Bride of Re-Animator – 11th November
In this sequel to Stuart Gordon’s cult comedy horror, RE-ANIMATOR, Hebert West returns once again, ready to have another go at bringing the dead back to life. Aided by his assistant, Dr. Cain, the pair set about making their own Frankenstein’s monster from various female parts they find in the hospital morgue, attempting to make the perfect woman. However, things don’t go to plan when a local sheriff and hospital doctor attempt to thwart the duo’s plans in this screamingly funny parody of THE BRIDE OF FRANKENSTEIN. Starring: Jeffrey Combs, Bruce Abbott, Fabiana Udenio.
Tetsuo – 11th November
This surreal Japanese cult sensation profiles a man who mutates into a metal being. Somewhere between a modern-day nightmare and a techno-fetishist’s ultimate fantasy, this incredible film took viewers on a surreal journey into a dark and disturbing world where self-inflicted body transformations and post-human women form the fabric of a strange new reality. Starring: Tomorowo Taguchi, Kei Fujiwara, Shin’ya Tsukamoto.
The Cat O’ Nine Tails – 18th November
In Dario Argento’s fearsome follow-up to The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, a blind man and a reporter investigate a series of slayings connected to a secret genetic facility. The sleuths quickly narrow it down to nine suspects, including the institute head’s beautiful daughter. But each time they get close to solving the crimes, the killer strikes again. Argento trademarks abound here, including stylized use of color during murder scenes, extreme eyeball closeups, and a Hitchcockian finale on a roof that echoes NORTH BY NORTHWEST. Starring: Karl Malden, James Cranciscus, Catherine Spaak.
Season of the Witch – 18th November
A bored, unhappy housewife takes up an interest in witchcraft after a chance encounter with an occult practitioner. Soon she finds herself drawn to the craft in ways that may be unlocking hidden powers—or perhaps is merely loosening her grip on reality. One of Romero’s most challenging, experimental works. Starring: Jan White, Raymond Laine.
The Baby – 25th November
A social worker tries to rescue an adult baby from his very creepy family in this essential ‘70s cult classic. Ann is determined to help “Baby,” whom she suspects is being kept in his infantilized state by his mean mommy. But the more Ann tries to play miracle worker, the more she puts herself in grave danger. Mommy likes things just as they are! One of the weirdest horror films to come out of the 1970’s (and that’s saying a lot), THE BABY is the kind of twisted delight you flip out over – and then spend the rest of your life showing to friends. Starring: Anjanette Comer, Ruth Roman, Marianna Hill.
