While they’re holding a lot of details close to the vest, Shudder did share the title of each tale:

  • “Daddy”
  • “Bride Before You”
  • “Brand of Evil”
  • “The Lake”
  • “Sundown”
  • “Fugue State”

I really loved the documentary of the same name from the same folks, so I’m in for this collection. It looks fantastic. Also: Tony Todd, Rachel True, and Peter Stormare (with a fiddle)!
