Shudder in February: SKINAMARINK, ATTACHMENT and NOCEBO Deserve Your Love Next Month
As the first month of the new year draws to a close our attention once again turns to February and to what our friends at Shudder have in store for us.
The month kicks off with what has already become a divisive horror flick, Skinamarink. The unconventional if not experimental approach to telling the story of siblings trapped in their own home when all the windows and doors vanish has proven to be a point of dicontent for some. Still, compared to its modest budget it did gangbusters at the box office so there is a lot of interest in this little Canadian horror film that could. Interest from folks that just have to see it for themselves and make their own decisions about it.
Of the other two major additions to Shudder's program next month I have seen Nocebo, starring Eva Green, and you don't want to miss it. I cannot speak for the horror romance Attachment it has been a year since Shudder acquired Gabriel Bier Gislason's queer horror film so maybe they were just waiting for Valentine's Day to roll around for the right time to stream it.
Speaking of Valentine's Day Shudder is hosting a it's fare share of horror-omantic and notorious minded flick just before the dreaded holiday. Patrick Lussier's wicked My Bloody Valentine 3D streams as of the first of the month. Both Nekromantik horror flicks and Jimmy Sangster's Hammer horror flick Lust for a Vampire drop on the 13th.
Action fans won't want to miss Park Hoon-jung's films The Witch Part 1 Subversion and The Witch Part 2 The Other One. The first one was pretty crazy balls so I'll be looking out for the sequel.
Lot's to love from Shudder next month, save some bonbons for them.
