The IFC Center’s new monthly Shudder programming series, “Shudder Showcase at IFC Center,” returns this October with some of Shudder’s most eagerly anticipated original films. This coming month, the program will play host to four exclusive preview screenings on Tuesdays throughout the month of October, leading up to Halloween.
The October line-up gets things off to a shuddersome start with the latest installment of Shudder’s V/H/S/ series, V/H/S/85, on Tuesday, October 3rd at 7pm. It continues with Brandon Christensen’s The Puppetman on Tuesday, October 10th at 7pm, followed by the Camille Rowe-led Night of the Hunted on Tuesday, October 24th at 7pm.
The month rounds out with the long-awaited fourth film of Stephen Cognetti’s popular Hell House LLC franchise, HELL HOUSE LLC: ORIGINS on Tuesday, October 24th at 7pm. The sneak screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Stephen Cognetti, moderated by Shudder’s VP of Programming Sam Zimmerman.
The IFC Center’s Shudder Showcase October sneak screenings are a highlight of AMC Networks’ FearFest, the company’s “monster-sized” horror and genre programming event, with over 700 hours of films, series and specials curated by Shudder. The events expand across AMC Networks’ entire portfolio of networks and streamers.
“Shudder Showcase at IFC Center” launched in August with a screening of BAD THINGS, a Tribeca Film Festival favorite, with director Stewart Thorndike in person for a post-screening Q&A. The Showcase continued with Norwegian Chiller NIGHTMARE in September. Each screening is hosted by Shudder’s VP of Programming Sam Zimmerman with free popcorn for Shudder subscribers, audience giveaways, and more.
