SWEET SWEET LONELY GIRL (Dir. A.D Calvo)
Exclusively on SHUDDER UK from 4th May
The hauntingly elegant SWEET SWEET LONELY GIRL comes to SHUDDER on the 4th May. This stylish gothic thriller features standout performances from its young female leads, rising stars Erin Wilhelmi (The Perks of Being a Wallflower, The Knick) and Quinn Shephard (Hostages) and was praised after its premiere at Austin’s renowned genre festival, Fantastic Fest as a breakout indie hit.
Directed by A.D. Calvo, SWEET SWEET LONELY GIRL explores the friendship between quiet Adele and seductive Beth, which blossoms as Adele takes care of her agoraphobic aunt. As Adele begins to discover that Beth may not be who she says she is, she is sent spiraling down a psychologically unhinged and phantasmagoric path, following in the footsteps of her unstable aunt.
SWEET SWEET LONELY GIRL evokes the atmospheric dread of 70s horror with distinctive nods to the work of Mario Bava and sitting alongside genre classics such as Let’s Scare Jessica to Death and more recently Ti West’s The House of the Devil.
HALFWORLDS SEASON 2 (Dir. Ekachai Uekrongtham)
Exclusively on SHUDDER UK from 4th May
HBO Asia’s wildly imaginative and visually stunning fantasy TV thriller continues on SHUDDER, blending the magic and horror of the films of Guillermo Del Toro, with the action and Eastern spiritualism of the greatest of Asian genre cinema.
In the second season of the acclaimed show, a tenacious researcher, Juliet, embarks on a quest to find an ancient artifact of great power. During her search, she uncovers and unwittingly draws the attention of a secret world of demons known as 'Peesaj' that live amongst mortals in the city of Bangkok...
HALFWORLDS is a high velocity, intense viewing experience created and conceptualised by rising genre filmmaking sensation Joko Anwar.
LAKE BODOM (Dir. Taneli Mustonen)
Exclusively on SHUDDER UK from 18th May
Based on terrifying real life events, LAKE BODOM is an intense, no-hold-barred post-modern slasher that takes everything you know about the genre and injects cutting wit, thrilling twists and 21st century ferocity into it.
Every camper's worst nightmare came true at Lake Bodom in 1960 when four teenagers were stabbed to death while sleeping in their tent. When four teens go on a pilgrimage to the site of the massacre, it appears that history may end up repeating itself.
For anyone who’s become jaded about cookie-cutter stalk n slash films, LAKE BODOM is a palette refresher shot though with deeply dark Nordic style.
