FSR: In Praise of Shudder

As Fessenden embarks on the second annual Shudder Labs Outing in Upstate NewYork with GEPals Peter Phok, Jenn Wexler, Clay MacLeod Chapman, Shudder host Sam Zimmerman and a team of horror lovers, Film School Rejects posts and aptly timed article on the streaming service. What are you waiting for?

Streaming and live-streams, and scares—oh my!

Like any self-respecting content consumer, I subscribe to an embarrassing amount of podcasts. As a result, I’ve heard my fair share of gotta-keep-the-lights-on adverts, but I’ve never been bothered to use a promo code, let alone google or buy a product. That is until I heard Elijah Wood sing the praises of Shudder, a niche, subscription-based streaming service geared to horror nerds. I’ve never opened a search bar so fast.

Shudder has been able to provide more than just recycled titles and low-quality indie fare. They’ve made available films that were otherwise hard to come by through the regular channels; from Larry Fessenden’s Habit to classics from F.W. Murnau. Perusing Shudder feels like being let into a fallout vault, well-stocked with everything from old favorites to genre classics, to challenging new fare.

Shudder Labs is here to kickstart your nightmares!

Screen Shot 2016-06-08 at 4.53.20 PM

Similar to the famed Sundance Labs that have helped foster the careers of such future A-list filmmakers as Quentin Tarantino and Cary Fukunaga, Shudder Labs — which held its inaugural edition earlier this month — invites a group of select filmmakers to attend a week-long retreat with established industry names to take their works-in-progress to the next level. The difference? Shudder Labs focuses its mentorship efforts on filmmakers working in the horror genre, providing them with the guidance of such genre vets as writer/director Larry Fessenden (Wendigo, The Last Winter), Snowfort Pictures CEO Travis Stevens and Lindsay Peters, Industry Director of the genre-centric Fantasia Film Festival and Director of the Frontières International Co-Production Market.

Introducing: the first-ever Shudder Labs Fellows!

Back in February, we told you about Shudder Labs, a new program from the horror-specific streaming service—which is still quite new itself, having launched last summer—designed to help up-and-coming horror filmmakers launch their careers by introducing them to mentors with experience serving in the horror trenches. Since then, the Masters-In-Residence for the program have been announced—Habit director and ubiquitous indie-horror actor Larry Fessenden, The Boy writer Clay McLeod Chapman, Darling producer Jenn Wexler, SFX artists Josh and Sierra Russell, and more—but we’ve yet to hear about the lucky fellows themselves.
