Happy April everyone! April is one of my favorite months because it’s my birthday, it’s Easter which means a tone of animals shaped like chocolate for some reason, and IT’S MY BIRTHDAY YOU GUYS! It’s also halfway to Halloween and Shudder is celebrating the month in style.
Unfortunately, for me, I’m in Canada so I don’t always get the great content that you American’s do with Shudder. But what I love about Shudder is how much content they still manage to get for us up north folks. I’ll include which ones are coming to us Canadians below.
Shudder is spending the month of April celebrating HALFWAY TO HALLOWEEN! And the content is insane.
Check out below:
TODAY – April 1st
Basic Instinct (1992, Paul Verhoeven)

Lizzie (Chloë Sevigny) is a social outcast, living a claustrophobic life that’s ready to boil over.
