Shudder announced its slate of new films premiering on the platform over the coming weeks. Shudder is set to release a new film every Thursday for 11 weeks, starting this week with Hunted which premiered Jan. 14.
AMC’s horror streaming platform is dedicated to all things scary, thriller and supernatural fiction, and this new lineup holds true to the theme. From bringing life to Mary Shelley’s story in A Nightmare Wakes to the surreal feminist thriller Lucky, there’s a new way to scare yourself every week.
Here’s a full list of the 11-week movie premieres on Shudder
“Hunted” (Jan. 14) – Lucie Debay stars in the upcoming project, which follows a woman who must flee her hunter (Arieh Worthalter) through the woods following what seemed like a flirtatious conversation at a bar. She’s pushed to the extremes in order to survive, but why not get revenge while she’s at it?
“The Queen of Black Magic” (Jan. 28) – An orphanage’s dark past is uncovered when families return to visit the now-ill director who raised them as children. The film, which takes place in rural Indonesia, is written by Joko Anwar and directed by Kimo Stamboel.

“After Midnight” (Feb. 11) – A young man (Jeremy Gardner) wakes one morning to find that his partner (Brea Grant) has vanished, leaving behind only a note to explain her disappearing act. But in her place seems to appear a creature that emerges from the edge of his property.

The couple must endure the psychological terror inflicted upon them by the jokester.
“Slaxx” (March 18) – A clothing company finds itself under attack on account of its less-than-ideal business practices. But the villain doling out the punishment on the company’s is not an angry justice-seeker, but a pair of possessed pants.
