Shudder Announces Comic-Con At Home Panels

Learn more about your favorite horror TV shows and movies during this year's SDCC event, Comic-Con@Home.


Comic-Con's annual San Diego event may be canceled, but the show must go on. Virtual panels are slowly being announced, and after seeing the success of the recent FunimationCon virtual event, Comic-Con@Home could be a great SDCC replacement. And AMC's horror-themed streaming service Shudder just announced two panels for the virtual event.

The virtual event will take place July 22-26, and it will be free to those who plan on attending. Shudder revealed what is has coming to the event. The first is a panel about horror television featuring various showrunners from TV shows like Channel Zero, Netflix's Locke & Key, Creepshow, NOS4A2, and Chucky--the Child's Play spin-off.

Secondly, a panel revolving around queer voices in horror has been announced. Director Sam Wineman--who is helming an upcoming documentary on LGBTQ horror film history on Shudder--will be one of the guests on the panel, alongside creators of Hannibal and Child's Play, and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina's Lachlan Watson. Check out all the details of the panels below.

Shudder's Comic-Con@Home panels:

  • Scary Good TV with Horror's Top Showrunners: Nick Antosca (Channel Zero), Meredith Averill (Locke & Key), Don Mancini (Chucky), Greg Nicotero (Creepshow) and Jami O’Brien (NOS4A2) offer their unique insights on why horror TV is having a moment and what it takes to create the kind of terrifying shows that keep viewers coming back episode after episode. Moderated by screenwriter/educator Tananarive Due (executive producer, Horror Noire: A History of Black Horror).
  • Shudder Presents "Horror is Queer": Discover why horror cinema is (and always has been) queer with Sam Wineman (The Quiet Room), director of Shudder’s upcoming documentary on LGBTQ horror film history, and a panel of leading voices: Nay Bever (co-host, Attack of the Queerwolf podcast), Bryan Fuller (creator, Hannibal), Don Mancini (creator of the Child's Play franchise), Lachlan Watson (actor, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), and, serving as moderator, writer Jordan Crucchiola.

Comic-Con@Home runs July 22-26, and times and dates for these Shudder panels will be revealed at a later date.

If you're interested in Shudder, the streaming service has plans starting at $57 an annual subscription (comes out to $4.75 a month) or $6 a month. The streaming service features movies, TV shows, podcasts, documentaries, and original content all revolving around the horror genre.
