Shudder has quickly cemented itself as the go to streaming service for horror fans. They have already impressed fans this year with the very well received Horror Noire documentary, resurrecting The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs, and the highly anticipated Creepshow series.
Now the streaming service is looking to dive into a new form of content: Podcasts!
It seems like everyone under the sun has a podcast these days and Shudder is jumping head first into it with some impressive talent.
Shudder is about to get into the podcast game with three new shows featuring names that should be familiar to all horror fans: Eli Roth, Adrienne Barbeau, and Elijah Wood and Daniel Noah.
The official titles for each podcast include: “Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut, an expansion of the television series AMC Visionaries: Eli Roth’s History of Horror; She Kills, a podcast by and about women in the horror genre, hosted by Adrienne Barbeau; and Visitations with Elijah Wood & Daniel Noah, a unique series that invites listeners into the lives and homes of some of the most creative figures working in genre entertainment today.”
Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut, will serve as a companion piece to his recent AMC series Eli Roth’s History of Horror (which is also currently airing on Shudder) and will include “…full, uncut interviews that Eli Roth and his producers conducted for the show. Over the course of twelve episodes, Eli Roth’s History of Horror: Uncut will offer listeners hours of never-before-heard, candid conversations between Roth and Stephen King, Edgar Wright, Quentin Tarantino, Diablo Cody, Bryan Fuller, Catherine Hardwicke, Victor LaValle, Tippi Hedren, Bruce Campbell, Josh Hartnett, Greg Nicotero, and Rob Zombie.” All episodes are currently available on Shudder.
Adrienne Barbeau’s series, She Kills, will debut on March 1st and is described as a “…podcast by and about women in horror. Each episode pairs notable women—actors, directors, writers and journalists—in frank and revealing conversations about female representation and inclusion in genre filmmaking. Guests include beloved stars like land writers, critics and horror experts like Blaire Bercy, Grae Drake, and Dana Schwartz.”
Fans will have to wait a little longer for Visitations with Elijah Wood & Daniel Noah (which isn’t due until Spring) but listeners can expect to hear Wood and Noah talk to “…some of their most creative friends and colleagues for casual conversations at locations of their subjects’ choosing—at their homes, on set, or in their personal workshops—in the ten-episode Shudder Original Podcast, Visitations with Elijah Wood & Daniel Noah. Episodes will feature visits with filmmakers Ana Lily Amirpour, Taika Waititi, and John Landis, writer Dan Harmon, musician Flying Lotus, and fashion designers Rodarte, among others.”
