It’s time again to check out regional release schedules on Shudder and our picks for each. It’s the real March madness, complete with psycho killers.

Shudder originals and exclusives will be presented in bold. Also, we’ll be sticking with the dating system native to a specific region.

Shudder CA

Canada lands a number of originals this month, but if we have to narrow it to one film for the highlight, an entirely arbitrary process, assuredly, then this month’s highlight is Koko-di Koko-da.

As a couple goes on a trip to find their way back to each other, a sideshow artist and his shady entourage emerge from the woods, terrorizing them, luring them deeper into a maelstrom of psychological terror and humiliating slapstick.

It seems very strange in the best way possible and also has an interesting style. Definitely, a film that merits a watch. Directed and written by Johannes Nyholm, the film stars Leif Edlund, Peter Belli, and Helle Andersen. It lands on Shudder on March 18th.

Shudder US

The US wins this month in the total number of available movies being added to Shudder’s catalogue with 26. Narrowing those 26 to a single choice, however, can be pretty tough.

This month, I recommend US audiences give the Shudder original Lucky a try.

A suburban woman fights to be believed as she finds herself stalked by a threatening figure who returns to her house night after night. When she can’t get help from those around her, she is forced to take matters into her own hands.

It is definitely a very timely message of modern horror for women. Directed by Natasha Kermani, the film was written by and stars Brea Grant. It also features Hunter C. Smith and Kristina Klebe. I only recently put Brea Grant on my radar after watching After Midnight, so I am intrigued to see her in a bit more of a substantial role.

Stream Lucky on March 4th.

Shudder UK

Shudder UK doesn’t land as many new selections this month, but some great classic horror is available in the form of The Great Gabbo, Nosferatu, and White Zombie.

Of the three, I would probably watch White Zombie as soon as it gets added to the service. This 1932 voodoo horror film certainty isn’t without it’s problems, but it does have a very fun character for Bela Lugosi and is a nice change of pace from a lot of our current zombie stories.

A young man turns to a witch doctor to lure the woman he loves away from her fiancé, but instead turns her into a zombie slave.

Shudder ANZ

Australia/New Zealand get a number of fun films this month, but for sheer, uncomfortable weirdness you cannot do better than The Greasy Strangler. It’s like if Adult Swim started making slasher films.

Ronnie runs a Disco walking tour with his son, Brayden. When a sexy woman takes the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her love. It also signals the arrival of an oily strangler who stalks the streets at night.

Directed by Jim Hosking, the film stars Michael St. Michaels, Sky Elobar, and Elizabeth De Razzo.

And if you don’t like it you can freely call me a bullshit artist. Stream it on the 30th of March and get some greasy food.

You can also listen to me guest on a High Art Camp podcast discussing the movie.
