the thrill Behind the monsters is a documentary series paying homage to some of the biggest and bloodiest names in the game. The first trailer is here and it sounds like a lot of fun, starring Tom Savini, Heather Langenkamp, Doug Bradley, Tony todd, and other well-known personalities come to share their experience and expertise.
If there is a characteristic of slasher moviesis that the killers themselves are the real stars; with a few exceptions, the guys who wield knives, machetes, razor-sharp fingernails, angry bees, interdimensional torture demons and other creative weapons are what audiences remember most when they leave the theater. They are also the ones who come back again and again, suite after suite. As new Halloween movie, Halloween kills, gearing up for its theatrical and streaming rollout, Shudder teases his latest series celebrating the horror genre. Take a look at Behind the monsters.
