Nouveautés Shudder Septembre 2023 - Une

Coming to Shudder | September 2023

On 28 August 2023

It’s the start of the fall programming season on the platforms, and it’s showing. September will be a rich month on Shudder in terms of both new productions and resurrections. 

It all kicks off with the terribly bad Perpetrator, which we told you about earlier this week. 

Here’s the full list of September releases on Shudder.


Perpetrator (Jennifer Reeder) | Starting on September 1st 

Jonny Baptiste is a reckless teen sent to live with her estranged Aunt Hildie. On the event of her 18th birthday, she experiences a radical metamorphosis: a family spell that redefines her called Forevering. When several teen girls go missing at her new school, a mythically feral Jonny goes after the Perpetrator.
