Shudder, the leading premium streaming service for thriller, suspense and horror, is turning May into Stephen King Month with a selection of the best movies and miniseries from the monarch of horror. These hard-to-find thrillers, including the original IT miniseries, Salem's Lot, Creepshow and Cat's Eye, will be available exclusively to Shudder members beginning May 1, 2018:
- IT - IT rises from dank, dark places. IT preys on children. IT knows exactly what scares you and IT never goes away. This 1990 TV mini-series put the town of Derry on the map and instilled a well-deserved fear of balloons and clowns in a generation with actor Tim Curry's terrifying portrayal of Pennywise.
- SALEM'S LOT - When vampires invade a small New England resort town, one man must face his worst fears to stop the blood-sucking creatures' plan to take over the innocent community of Salem's Lot. Directed by Tobe Hooper of Texas Chainsaw Massacre fame, this 1979 adaptation of Kings best-selling novel presented a fresh and disturbing take on the vampire legend that still delivers the thrills.
- CREEPSHOW - Two masters of horror--novelist Stephen King and director George Romero, team up to terrorize with a spine-tingling anthology, Creepshow. Based on classic horror comics, loaded with special effects and featuring a cameo from King himself, Creepshow is a funhouse ride of campy scares.
- CAT'S EYE - A stray cat guides us through each tale in this Stephen King-based anthology favorite. Heavy on the suspense and featuring a young Drew Barrymore, Cat's Eye offers a quirky take on classic King fare.
"Creepshow, Cat's Eye, Salem's Lot and of course the blockbuster miniseries It, featuring Tim Curry's gleefully malevolent performance as Pennywise, are some of the most iconic Stephen King movies and series ever made," said Craig Engler, general manager of Shudder. "We're excited to have them exclusively on Shudder during Stephen King month, where they can be discovered by new fans and binged again by old fans. It's part of our commitment to deliver the largest, and best, collection of horror, thriller and suspense to Shudder members."
