Rob Zombie’s Latest Horror Flick ’31’ Coming Exclusively to Shudder Streaming Service
Rob Zombie’s latest horror film “31,” which got a limited theatrical release last month, is arriving as an exclusive on the subscription horror streaming service Shudder in December. It’s one of 60 titles that Shudder is adding next month as the service aims to establish itself as a darker and scarier alternative to Netflix.
“31” is the story of five carnival workers that find themselves kidnapped and subjected to a sadistic game that pits them in a last-man-standing type fight against a horde of killer clowns. The movie first premiered at Sundance earlier this year, where it received mixed reviews.
Some of the other titles included in Shudder’s December catalog refresh include John Carpenter’s “The Fog,” Michael Powell’s “Peeping Tom” and David Cronenberg’s “Dead Ringers.” Most of the movies added to the service in December are not available on any other streaming service.
Shudder, which is run by AMC Networks, launched in beta last summer. The service is available on the web as well as on mobile devices and on Roku streaming devices, and costs consumers $4.99 per month. Shudder is also available through Amazon Channels, the subscription video services platform operated by Amazon, as well as Ellation’s recently-launched video subscription bundle VRV.
