Halloween may be a distant memory, but nothing says “horror” like Christmas, with those cold, frosty nights just asking for some frightful scares.
Here’s what’s coming soon to Shudder UK in December 2019
The Head Hunter – 5th December
On the outskirts of a kingdom, a quiet but fierce medieval warrior protects the realm from monsters and the occult. His gruesome collection of heads is missing only one — the monster that killed his daughter years ago. Driven by revenge, he travels wild expanses on horseback looking for the monster. When his second chance arrives, it’s in a way far more horrifying than he ever imagined. Starring Christopher Rygh and Cora Kaufman, directed by Jordan Downey.
Trivisa – 9th December
Three notorious gangsters (“kings of thieves”) who have never crossed paths find themselves in the same restaurant at the same time, and their fates are changed forever. This fictionalized story about three real-life criminals was showered with awards and nominations, including Best Film at the Hong Kong Film Awards.
Iskander: Shadow of the River – 9th December
In French Guiana, a couple have been slaughtered on their boat and their young son is missing. The case falls to a pair of cops who don’t exactly get along: Chloe—a rookie on her first day, newly arrived from France—and Dialo, her Guianese partner, a local cop who knows the territory and its secrets all too well. The clues lead them on a feverish journey through the city and deep into the rainforest, where ancient rituals connect the crime with a disturbing and unsettled past. This four-episode French miniseries is an intense, tropical thriller that’s perfect for bingeing.
Inner Demon – 11th December
In Ursula Dabrowsky’s twist-filled thriller, a teenage girl must fight for survival when she’s kidnapped by an evil psychopath couple with a taste for torment. Samantha soon manages to escape into the woods where she stumbles into a secluded home. But Sam’s story, and her long night of terror, is far from over. This house belongs to someone she’s already met, and there may be another resident living there–one who’s not exactly flesh and blood. Nobody does brutal crime thrillers better than Australia, and this seriously scary story is no exception to that rule.
