The GM of Shudder, Craig Engler, had an AMA on Reddit just yesterday where he answered the burning questions of several fans. The horror streaming platform, Shudder, has a host of films and tv series that you won’t find anywhere else, and they also release new scary movies almost weekly.
Engler discussed everything from his top 3 horror characters to what he’d love to bring to the channel. He also shared that they’re launching a new docu-series Behind the Monsters this week and the anticipated anthology film Horror Noire, based upon the documentary Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror.
A fan asked about Cursed Films, saying they loved season one and hoped for a second.
Engler responded to the fan’s question, saying that it was discussed in a notes call this morning.
