It may not be October yet, but Shudder is already getting in the spooky autumn spirit as it finally unveils its new Creepshow series this September, with new episodes then arriving weekly to count down to Halloween. But the horror-focused subscription service isn’t resting on its creepy laurels, with no fewer than four original movies arriving in the coming month, although two of them (one on the 12th, one on the 24th) are being kept closer under wraps for now…)
Here’s what’s coming soon to Shudder UK in September 2019:
The Wrath – 5th September
In this supernatural creeper set in 14th century Korea, a curse is killing the sons of the kingdom’s highest-ranking official. When the final son dies, his pregnant widow, Ok-bun, must face vicious family politics and the vengeful spirit descending on the household. A remake of 1986 Korean horror essential, Woman’s Wail, The Wrath is elegant horror with funhouse chills.
Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire — 19th September
In the final installment of the franchise, guests both past and present will be forced to battle for their souls in Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire, as all is revealed about the infamous Abaddon Hotel and the evil that dwells there. Set one year after the events of Hell House LLC II: The Abaddon Hotel, the hotel is on the verge of being torn down when it is purchased by billionaire Russell Wynn (Gabriel T. Chytry) as the new home for his popular interactive show, “Insomnia.” He invites journalist Venessa Sheppard (Elizabeth Vermilyea) and her crew to record everything happening inside the hotel leading up to the performance, but they soon encounter a more nefarious plot, one that threatens to unleash a veritable hell on earth.
The Borderlands – 23rd September
After reports of strange phenomena in a rural English church, a team is sent by the Vatican to see if what is happening qualifies as a miracle. At first sceptical, and mistrusted by the locals, they soon learn that they may have found something far darker and more potent than they could possibly have imagined.
Creepshow (2019): Season 1 – 26th September
From showrunner Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead) comes a new Shudder Original anthology horror series based on the iconic 1982 film written by Stephen King and directed by George A. Romero.
Each of the six episodes features two stories. In the premiere, those stories are: Gray Matter (based on the Stephen King story, directed by Nicotero), which follows two old-timers in a small, dying town, who brave a storm to check on Richie, an alcoholic single father, after encountering his terrified son at the local convenience store; and The House of the Head (written by Josh “Bird Box” Malerman, directed by John Harrison), which follows Evie, who discovers her new dollhouse might be haunted..
New episodes arrive weekly on Thursdays.
Don’t Knock Twice – 30th September
Hot on the heels of indie sci-fi thriller The Machine, director Caradog James returns with horror movie Don’t Knock Twice – and when it comes to crafting quality genre flicks on a low budget, he’s definitely two for two. Unafraid to back up practical scares with heartfelt sentiment, this indie horror starring Lucy Boynton and Katee Sackhoff is a promising calling card for the up-and-coming British director.
