Half of what makes a good horror film is a good monster. Without a believable, and ultimately scary, antagonist there’s not much for the audience to latch onto. No film studio – not even the amazing Hammer Films – has ever been able to hold a candle to the classics, and probably wouldn’t have ever existed without the Universal monster movies of the 1930s and 40s.
Shudder recently announced their September line up and among the titles listed were two films from indie genre distributor Terror Films. The two films included: the highly anticipated Hell House LLC III: Lake of Fire, plus a fan and critic favorite that seemed to have all but disappeared from digital platforms – Adam Robitel’s award-winning feature debut, The Taking of Deborah Logan. The Taking of Deborah Logan will be released on Shudder beginning September 30, 2019. The official release date for the wider platform release is expected to be announced soon.
