The streaming service Shudder has picked up North American streaming rights to two horror films: Color Out Of Space and The Shed. Both projects are from RJLE Films and are set to debut on the streaming platform in the U.S. Canada, UK and Ireland sometime this year.
Shudder is an American over-the-top subscription VOD streaming service that specializes in featuring horror, thriller, and supernatural titles. The platform is owned and operated by AMC networks.
Color Out Of Space is a sci-fi horror film directed by Richard Stanley. The project stars Nicolas Cage as Nathan Gardner. The story centers around his and his family’s lives, which turn upside down when a meteorite lands in their front yard. They find themselves battling a mutant extraterrestrial organism that infects their minds and bodies, transforming their peaceful, rural life into a living nightmare.
Alongside Cage, the film also stars Joely Richardson and Madeleine Arthur.
Produced by Daniel Noah, Lisa Whalen, Elijah Wood and Josh C. Waller of SpectreVision, the film had made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival.
The Shed stars Jay Jay Warren, Cody Kostro, Sofia Happonen, Frank Whaley, Siobhan Fallon Hogan and Timothy Bottoms. The picture is directed by Frank Sabatella and marks his second feature. The movie follows Stan, played by Warren, and his best friend Dommer (Kostro), who have both dealt with bullies their entire lives. They meet a sick turn in their lives when Stan discovers he has a murderous vampire living in his shed. Amidst the monster’s bloodshed and destruction, Stan has to figure out a way to destroy it, but his friend has another plan.
In response to the recent horror acquisitions, Shudder General Manager Craig Engler stated: “We’re thrilled to be bringing Shudder member Stanley’s masterful adaptation of one of H.P. Lovecraft’s most influential stories—as well as another unforgettable Nicolas Cage performance—and Sabatella’s inventive new take on the vampire genre. The first half of 2020 has been the most successful in Shudder history, and these two great films will be part of an already-strong second half of the year, alongside titles like Scare Package, The Beach House, La Llorona, Scare Me and our upcoming original documentary on the history of Queer Horror.”
