Here’s some news that all fans of classic horror will might dig: Shudder is bringing an exclusive collection of Stephen King classics to its streaming service beginning tomorrow May 1, including the following:
IT – This 1990 TV mini-series put the town of Derry on the map and instilled a well-deserved fear of balloons and clowns in a generation with actor Tim Curry’s terrifying portrayal of Pennywise.
SALEM’S LOT – When vampires invade a small New England resort town, one man must face his worst fears to stop the blood-sucking creatures’ plan to take over an innocent community. Directed by Tobe Hooper (Texas Chainsaw Massacre), this 1979 adaptation of King’s best-selling novel presented a fresh and disturbing take on the vampire legend that still delivers the thrills.
CREEPSHOW – Two masters of horror – novelist Stephen King and director George Romero – team up to terrorize with a spine-tingling anthology. Based on classic horror comics, loaded with special effects and featuring a cameo from King himself, Creepshow is a funhouse ride of campy scares.
CAT’S EYE – A stray cat guides us through each tale in this Stephen King-based anthology favourite. Heavy on the suspense and featuring a young Drew Barrymore, Cat’s Eye offers a quirky take on classic King fare.
