Happy Summer from everyone at 52 Weeks of Horror! July marks the over-the-hump point to the December holidays, and as such, Shudder comes bearing the gift of horror with their Summer of Short Series. Featuring a vibrant mix of fantasy, horror, thriller and dark drama, each multi-episode series comes from acclaimed directors and producers across the globe. Get a taste of up-and-coming genre talent representing the best in the contemporary horror festival scene. This month’s shorts include: Korean series “Aftermath” and “Doll House,” British director Kieron J. Walsh’s “Rapt,” and French director Gabriel Galand’s “Horla”.
Also fresh on Shudder in July is a new exclusive, KUSO. Broadcasting through a makeshift network of discarded televisions, KUSO depicts the aftermath of Los Angeles’s worst earthquake nightmare. Viewers travel between screens and aftershocks into the twisted lives of the survived, experiencing a hallucination that feels like David Cronenberg meeting Ren & Stimpy in the directorial debut of Steve Ellison (better known as acclaimed musician Flying Lotus). It also features Hannibal Buress (Neighbors, Broad City), Anders Holm (Workaholics, The Mindy Project), Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Eastbound & Down), and musician George Clinton.
