Coming to Shudder | August 2023

The month of August won’t be ultra-rich in new releases for Shudder, but the 2 titles that will be arriving are rather promising. Personally, it’s Bad Things that’s got my attention, which I’ll tell you about in a few days’ time.

Here are the titles coming to Shudder in August 2023.

The premieres
