Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for thriller, suspense, and horror, has announced its impressive lineup of originally produced and acquired films and series to be featured at this year’s Fantastic Fest, held in Austin, Texas, from September 20–27.

The centerpiece of Shudder’s Fantastic Fest programming is the world premiere of all eight episodes of audiophile nightmare Deadwax, an original short-form series starring Hannah Gross (Mindhunter) and Evan Gamble (Hap & Leonard), created by Graham Reznick (I Can See You, PS4’s Until Dawn) and executive produced by Reznick and Peter Phok (The House of the Devil, Stake Land). The 8-episode short-form series is slated to premiere on Shudder later this year.

Shudder has also announced the acquisition of North American rights for two Fantastic Fest titles: acclaimed Brazilian supernatural thriller The Night Shifter and wild Japanese crime saga The Blood of Wolves. Fantastic Fest will also host the U.S. premiere of the celebrated Argentine horror film, Terrified, which will launch on Shudder on October 11, one of a series of weekly original and exclusive premieres coming to the service now through Halloween.

In addition, genre film fans in New York, San Francisco and Denver will be able to screen Terrified and The Night Shifter at Fantastic Fest’s “satellite markets” at select Alamo Drafthouse locations, along with another upcoming Shudder exclusive, the SXSW noir hit A Bluebird in My Heart.

“Shudder is excited to be returning to Fantastic Fest, one of the world’s great showcases for genre films, bigger and better than ever before,” said Aurelie de Troyer, VP of Global Acquisitions for Shudder. “Not just to screen standout films from the global market and our newest originals series, but also to be on the lookout for mind-blowing future acquisitions to share with Shudder members.”
