I’ve got a new review over at Horror DNA.
Some disappointing news this weekend. AMC Networks, the parent company of Shudder, is laying off personnel, including key people at the horror-streaming service. While I love the various free services out there, especially the ones offering cult films, Shudder has been producing amazing original content, and curating a fantastic range of horror sub-genres with high quality transfers. It would be a shame to see the site start suffering or go the way of FilmStruck, especially since it appears Shudder is doing well in terms of subscribers. I hope if it sinks, then something somehow as good or greater comes of it, similar to how FilmStruck’s demise gave rise to The Criterion Channel.
