Shudder In May 2020: New Horror Movies, TV Shows, And Originals Than You Can Handle

Enjoy Pinhead and all his skin-ripping antics in two Hellraiser movies, and a whole lot more coming to the horror streaming service.


Who doesn't love curling up on the couch to watch a horror movie? And AMC's Shudder has nothing but scary flicks on its streaming service. Coming in the month of May are plenty of new movies, TV shows, and original content to keep you up at night. Check out everything arriving in May below, along with a few recommendations.

On May 25, Turbo Kid arrives. This bizarre 2015 film takes place in a post-apocalyptic wasteland in the far future of 1997. A comic book fan takes on a superhero persona in order to save his friend and take down a crazed overloard. It certainly does sound like the plot of an '80s, and if you watch the trailer--which you can see below--it has a lot of '80s-style special effects, like saws going into people's chests. It looks like a total blast.

Now Playing: Best Shows And Movies To Stream For May 2020 - Netflix, Hulu, Shudder, Amazon Prime Video

If you're looking for something a bit more classic, both Hellraiser and Hellbound: Hellraiser II arrive on May 11. If you're unfamiliar, the films follow a mysterious puzzle box. If someone opens it, cenobites are summoned and torture people in horrific ways. What are cenobites? Well, they're demons from hell that are dressed like they are going to the most violent S&M convention of all time.

Finally, every Friday in May at 9 PM ET / 6 PM PT, a new episode of The Last Drive-In With Joe Bob Briggs airs. Each week, the titular host presents two creature features from the vaults. Occasionally, Briggs pops up and offers some insight into the films or other pieces of wisdom. There will be 10 episodes in this season, which kicks off on April 24.

Below, you'll find everything coming to Shudder in May, and for more streaming news, check out everything coming to Disney+, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Hulu for the month of May.

And speaking of things you should be watching, consider listening to GameSpot's weekly TV series and movies-focused podcast, You Should Be Watching. With new episodes premiering every Wednesday, you can watch a video version of the podcast over on GameSpot Universe or listen to audio versions on Spotify, Stitcher, Google Play, and Apple Podcasts.
