We love horror anthologies here at AIPT. Unsurprisingly, we were excited to hear that Scare Package will be debuting on on Shudder on June 18. The movie is a series of seven scary stories. Chad, the owner of Rad Chad’s Horror Emporium recounts the tales to a new employee. Each one will tackle a different trope and illustrate the rules of horror. The cast includes Noah Segan (Knives Out), Baron Vaughn (Mystery Science Theater 3000) and pro wrestling legend Dustin Rhodes.
Led by a diverse group of up-and-coming genre filmmakers, Scare Package features the directorial debuts of actors Segan and Vaughn. Emily Hagins (Netflix’s Coin Heist), Anthony Cousins (The Bloody Ballad of Squirt Reynolds), Chris McInroy (Bad Guy #2, Death Metal), Courtney and Hillary Andujar (production designers of The Girl On The Third Floor, Bloodline), and Aaron B. Koontz (Camera Obscura, the upcoming The Pale Door) round out the collection of filmmakers.
“We are delighted to introduce a new generation of horror voices in this smart, funny, gory, ode to horror that is Scare Package,” said Emily Gotto, Shudder’s Director of Global Acquisitions & Co-Production.
“People say this often, but we mean it: This truly is a movie made by horror fans, for horror fans. And we have the tears, sweat and 40+ gallons of blood to prove it. So, to be able to partner this love-letter with Shudder was a dream come true and hopefully can be a wild and hilarious distraction in our newly confined times,” said producer and segment director Aaron B. Koontz.
