Hear that, horror fans? That's just the sound of the popular horror streaming service, Shudder, finding even more ways to send a chill down our spines with the release of their first ever scripted podcast, Video Palace...
...Since it's launch, Shudder has wowed horror fans with an ever growing list of horror films/TV, ranging from classics, to original works, and everything in between, as well as the relaunch of Joe Bob Briggs Monstervision. Now, the service is moving into other forms of media, launching a ten-part, scripted horror podcast series entitled Video Palace. The series is produced by Nick Braccia and Michael Monello (The Blair Witch Project). Directed by Ben Rock (20 Seconds to Live, ALien Raiders) and written by Rock and Bob DeRosa (Killers), Video Palace chronicles a young couple's investigation into the origins of a mysterious VHS tape and the infamous video store from which it came.
From the Press Release:
“Shudder is the preeminent destination for fans of horror and suspense, and we’re thrilled to launch our first scripted podcast for our members,” said Craig Engler, General Manager of Shudder. “With Video Palace, Nick Braccia and Michael Monello have created a mysterious, compelling and unique story that will draw listeners in from the opening moments and keep them hooked.”
All episodes of Video Palace, along with 5 extended interview scenes, are available now on Shudder exclusively for its members. Episode 1 of Video Palace is also available to non-members on Apple Podcasts and other platforms, where subsequent episodes will be released weekly.
