February 2022 on Shudder is shaping up to have some fun horror experiences to embrace in one of the shortest but coldest months of the year. January turned out to have a number of great additions to the Shudder library. This month in the US, Shudder fans get to take a deep dive into Boris Karloff’s work, celebrate a little bit of Black History month with Tales from the Hood, and spend Valentine’s Day weekend with Joe Bob Briggs.

Not to be outdone, all of Shudder‘s regions have originals, exclusives, and new and returning films added to their libraries. It’s called Februscary for a reason, after all.

So, what is on offer on Shudder for February 2022.
