Shudder in May: Gory Heavyweights PSYCHO GOREMAN And SKULL THE MASK Bring May Flowers
We are halfway through April, enjoying everything that our friends at Shudder have brought to us so far in the halfway to Halloween month. With our daytimers already marked for the remaining releases this month it's time to skip ahead a few pages and start checking off the month of May.
What's a 'daytimer', old man?
Moving along. There's a lot to choose from next month. Of the big additions to the lineup we already announced the other day that Canadian horror comedy PG Psycho Goreman will begin streaming on Shudder next month. Counter to that film's funny side of gore is Brazilian horror Skull: The Mask which also has a tremendous amount of practical gore effects as well, albeit leaning towards a brutal kind of violence.
On the first day of May a few classic horror flicks will drop: The Wicker Man, two versions of House on Haunted Hill, 13 Ghosts and Curse of the Demon. During the second week there are some current horror flick joining the ranks: Sator, Climate of the Hunter and from Argentina The Funeral Home.
Also that week is the Canadian Indigenous thriller series Trickster which experienced an untimely and controversial end to its first season. It's on a different level than the cancellation of Kim's Convenience but our national broadcaster who handled both those shows has taken a couple hits this year, for sure.
