Shudder Announces Virtual Halloween Event “ShudderFest”; Secret Screening of a Future Shudder Original!

Shudder had been promising one more special treat on the road to Halloween and they’ve come through today with the announcement that “ShudderFest” is coming on Halloween!

“ShudderFest” is a free, day-long, global celebration open to all with star-studded panels and presentations—plus a Shudder members-only secret screening of a future Shudder Original.

This incredible day-long virtual event will feature panels, presentations, conversations and screenings led by legendary genre icons, fan-favorite musicians, and acclaimed directors, writers, and producers, free to all and available anywhere in the world via the shudderfest.com website.
