Two great films are coming to Shudder later this year...
...Via Deadline, Shudder has acquired North American rights to both director Richard Stanley's adaptation of Lovecraft's Color Out of Space and director Frank Sabatella’s vampire pic The Shed!
For those unfamiliar with either film, in Color Out of Space, which stars Nicolas Cage, "A secluded farm is struck by a strange meteorite which has apocalyptic consequences for the family living there and possibly the world." (You can read our review here).
In The Shed, "A hunter gets bitten by a vampire and runs into a shed to avoid sunlight. Stan, a 17 y.o. on probation, and his supervisor grandpa live next to it. Stan's bullied high school buddy can use a monster." (You can read our review here).
Said Shudder's General Manager Craig Engler, “We’re thrilled to be bringing Shudder members 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.”
Both RJLE Films pics are set to debut on Shudder in the U.S. Canada, UK and Ireland later this year
