If you’ve been waiting for something seriously special to arrive to Shudder, today is your day. The surging VOD outlet has thrown two new gems in the mix in the form of Dearest Sister and Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th.
Here’s the breakdown on Dearest Sister:
In the film, a young Laotian woman named Nok is sent to care for Ana, a blind relative who’s having ghostly visions. What the ghouls bring are specific premonitions that can change Nok’s life, maybe for the worse. Reminiscent of adult-minded supernatural horror of the ’70s, DEAREST SISTER is an eerie story, rich with insight into class divide in Laos. For many, DEAREST SISTER is the introduction of a terrific new talent in director Do, as well as the cinema of Laos. It’s something scary, and very special, indeed.
And here’s an idea of what you’ll get from this massive near-seven our long documentary about our favorite hockey mask wearing, machete wielding lunatic:
Inspired by the critically-acclaimed book, Crystal Lake Memories: The Complete History of Friday the 13th takes viewers behind the mask on an epic journey into the making of the landmark horror franchise-from its humble beginnings in 1980 at a New Jersey summer camp to the blockbuster release of its 2009 “reboot.” Combining hundreds of rare and never-before-seen photographs, film clips, outtakes, archival documents, conceptual art and behind-the-scenes footage, and featuring interviews with more than 150 cast and crew members spanning all twelve films and the television series, Crystal Lake Memories is the ultimate tribute to one of horror’s most iconic and enduring franchises.
Both films can be viewed right now!
