New On Shudder In April 2020: Cursed Films And All The Friday The 13th Movies

All the Friday the 13th movies are coming to Shudder in April.


If you're looking for a bit of a scare and escape from your day-to-day activities, there's no better place to go than Shudder, AMC's horror-themed streaming service. This month, you can binge-watch the Friday the 13th series or check out the new docuseries Cursed Films. Here's everything coming to Shudder in April.

On April 1, Shudder has almost all of the Jason Voorhees movies coming to the service. Every movie in the main Friday the 13th saga is coming your way. If you want to watch Jason on a boat, check out Jason Takes Manhattan. If you want to see Jason get his trademark mask, check out Part 3 of the series. If you want to see someone pretend to be Jason, check out A New Beginning. If you want to see Jason's mother kill people, check out the original Friday the 13th movie. I only know this much about the series because I've written about it many times.

That's not all you should check out. Beginning on April 2, you can check out Shudder's new original series, Cursed Films. The docuseries dives deep into Hollywood myth and lore, uncovering curses placed on certain films. Spoiler alert, there are no curses. However, the series does fully document each myth and why it happened.

In order to celebrate it being halfway to the spookiest holiday of the year--Halloween--each week, Shudder will present Halfway to Halloween, which isn't something to watch. You can call up the Shudder hotline and get recommendations for movies to watch for one hour a week. The streaming service did this last October as well. So if you're spending all your time just trying to find something to watch, why no just ask an expert?

Below, you'll find everything coming to Shudder for the month of April. For more streaming news, check out what's coming in April for Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+.
