NEW YORK, NY - January 14, 2021 - Shudder, AMC Networks' premium streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, today announced its unbeatable lineup of eleven new Shudder Original and Shudder Exclusive films set to premiere on the service over the next eleven weeks: Hunted, The Queen of Black Magic, A Nightmare Wakes, After Midnight, Shook, The Dark & the Wicked, Lucky, Stay Out of the F**king Attic, Slaxx, Koko-di Koko-da and Violation that together span five countries on three continents and range from dark comedy to survival horror to period psychological thrillers.

"2020 set a new standard for Shudder Original and Exclusive films with more than 40 premieres, including two, La Llorona and Impetigore - submitted by their home countries for Oscar consideration, and another, the Zoom-based Host, capturing our unique quarantine moment better than any other film released last year. 2021 is set to be even bigger with films from both established horror masters and exciting new voices premiering nearly every week. First quarter is just the beginning as we continue to grow the best library of exclusive horror in streaming," said Craig Engler, Shudder's General Manager.
