Shudder in July: ARCADIAN And HUMANE Featured Next Month
Shudder's lineup for the month of July features two new feature films, Arcadian and Humane, more of The Last Drive-in and a healthy dose of rep titles in the Shudder Resurrected programming. 
Our own Josh caught Benjamine Brewer's monster flick, Arcadian, when it premiered at SXSW earlier this year. You will find his full review here
... by the time the shit hits the fan, we know and care for these characters and equally important, we understand that they care for each other. While it may not display quite the same level of scares as The Descent, Arcadian definitely takes a page from that film’s care and character building. Brewer’s confident direction, the vast unbroken Irish desolation, and an effective score all support the action on screen which is, for my money, some of the best monster action in years.
Our own Kurt caught Caitlin Cronenberg's debut thriller, Humane, at Calgary Underground this year. You will find his full review here
Apocalypses in Canadian cinema tend to occur in slow motion, and have a subversive touch of quiet absurdity. The two undisputed classics of the genre are Don McKellar’s Last Night, and Bruce McDonald’s Pontypool. Caitlin Cronenberg aims for that lofty territory with her debut feature film, Humane.
More on both titles and the full lineup follow.

HUMANE takes place over a single day, mere months after a global ecological collapse has forced world leaders to take extreme measures to reduce the earth’s population. In a wealthy enclave, a recently retired newsman has invited his four grown children to dinner to announce his intentions to enlist in the nation’s new euthanasia program. But when the father’s plan goes horribly awry, tensions flare and chaos erupt among his children.
