September is going to be big on the niche streaming service Shudder, as announces a smattering of new content that includes season 2 of SYFY’s anthology Channel Zero as well as the streaming premiere of the acclaimed and aptly titled revenge drama, Revenge, from director Coralie Fargeat. AMC’s service plans to add nearly 20 new titles to its catalog next month, some of which are from such acclaimed filmmakers as Andrew Niccol and Park Chan-wook.
In the realm of streaming services, there are those like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon that aim to be everything to everyone. Then there are those, like Shudder, whose plan is to pin its fortunes on providing as much content as possible within a single genre: horror. So far, the service has landed series like Neil Gaiman’s Likely Games, as well as other exclusive content such as Beyond the Walls, Missions, and Black Lake. It’s also the home to some exclusive movie content, like Steven Yeun’s Mayhem and one of the best horror films from 2017, the Turkish cat-and-mouse thriller Cold in Hell.
In addition to landing the critically acclaimed Revenge, viewers can follow that up with Park Chan-wook’s vengeance trilogy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance, Oldboy, and Lady Vengeance. Viewers looking for something other than bloody retribution can check out the month’s genre outlier with Niccol’s elegant late ‘90s film Gattaca, or Liquid Sky, another sci-fi flick with a very different vibe.
