Spiral is currently available on Shudder and if you are not a subscriber, this is THE film that will make you sign up. Plus let’s face it, there are some amazing classics and other curated collections thanks to the team at Shudder.

I know I have seen a good movie when I keep thinking about it over and over again in my mind. Wondering if I possibly missed anything. That good movie for this year is Spiral. The film stars Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Ari Cohen, Jennifer Laporte, and Lochlyn Munro.

Listen to my review of Spiral:

Spiral Synopsis:

Malik (Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, American Horror Story, Canada’s Drag Race) and Aaron (Ari Cohen, IT: CHAPTER TWO) move to a small town in search of a better environment for them and their 16-year-old daughter (Jennifer Laporte, Web of Dreams). But nothing is as it seems as something sinister lies behind the picturesque homes and welcoming faces of their new neighbors (Lochlyn Munro, CW’s Riverdale).

A horror film for the current age, SPIRAL skillfully dissects themes of ostracization, otherness, and the cycles of societal rejection and hate, led by a breakout performance by Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman.

With Ty Wood and Chandra West. Written by Colin Minihan (writer of the Shudder Original Z and the upcoming new URBAN LEGEND) and John Poliquin (SELFIE), directed by Kurtis David Harder (SUMMERLAND, INCONTROL).

SPIRAL is produced by Minihan, Harder, and John Poliquin for Digital Interference, the celebrated Canadian indie label behind the SXSW sensation WHAT KEEPS YOU ALIVE (released by IFC Midnight), Shudder Originals Z and STILL/BORN, and the cult-hit GRAVE ENCOUNTERS.
