It’s never too early to think about the joys of summer–and Shudder plans to provide plenty of “chills” for the steamy months ahead.
The horror streamer this week revealed a slate of a dozen offerings–collectively called the Summer of Chills–sure to please fans through August, as reported by collider.com. A highlight of the event will be the exclusive showing on June 8 of the previously lost George A. Romero film The Amusement Park. Check out the movie’s trailer on this page.
Shudder general manager Craig Engler said the Summer of Chills “offers something for everyone, with a fantastic lineup of new premieres every week–on top of the best library of curated streaming horror films anywhere.” So, without further ado, here are the Shudder summer sizzlers:
