New LGBTQ Horror to hit streaming platform Shudder

Need a new horror to look forward to?. check out the official press-release for Spiral

There is so much great stuff on Shudder these days. It took a while for their library to build up but man, they’re a horror fans dream come true. And Spiral looks to be another horror we should be looking forward to. Check out the press release and trailer below. I hope you enjoy it.

Don’t trust the neighbours in the Shudder Original SPIRAL, starring Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman


The new acclaimed queer horror from the writer of WHAT KEEPS YOU ALIVE and the producers of HARPOON, Z and STILL/BORN

Official Selection of FrightFest, Brooklyn Horror Film Festival,
BFI Flare: London LGBTQ+ Film Festival

A same-sex couple move to a small town to enjoy a better quality of life, but nothing is as it seems in their new neighbourhood

Available on AMC’s horror streaming service Shudder in the US, UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand September 17th

“A thrilling blend of Polanski and Peele” 

SciFi Now

“Unnerving Psychological Horror at its best” 


“The most emotionally scarring, horrifyingly realistic, and intelligently conceived take on queer horror I’ve seen to date”

Wicked Horror

“Through a phenomenal performance, chilling atmosphere and a terrific script, Spiral builds an experience that is as terrifying as it is depressingly timely”  


Malik (Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, American Horror Story, Canada’s Drag Race) and Aaron (Ari Cohen, IT: CHAPTER TWO) move to a small town in search of a better environment for them and their 16-year-old daughter (Jennifer Laporte, Web of Dreams). But nothing is as it seems as something sinister lies behind the picturesque homes and welcoming faces of their new neighbours (Lochlyn Munro, CW’s Riverdale). 

A horror film for the current age, SPIRAL skillfully dissects themes of ostracisation, otherness, and the cycles of societal rejection and hate, led by a breakout performance by Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman. 

With Ty Wood and Chandra West. Written by Colin Minihan (writer of the Shudder Original Z and the upcoming new URBAN LEGEND) and John Poliquin (SELFIE), directed by Kurtis David Harder (SUMMERLAND, INCONTROL). 

SPIRAL is produced by Minihan, Harder, and John Poliquin for Digital Interference, the celebrated Canadian indie label behind the SXSW sensation WHAT KEEPS YOU ALIVE (released by IFC Midnight), Shudder Originals Z and STILL/BORN, and the cult-hit GRAVE ENCOUNTERS.    

Spiral hits Shudder on the 17th of September. Check out the trailer below. Enjoy
