Check out everything that will be streaming on SCREAMBOX for the rest of the month:

  • As Asian horror films continue to break-through in the US and find success in both the box office and streaming, SCREAMBOX will debut some of the best out there: from the visionary creator of The Grudge, Ox-Head Village is a twisted mystery sure to leave viewers guessing. In the vein of Battle Royale and Black Rat, Signal 100 pushes the boundaries of the genre. 
  • After the first season left viewers on the edge of their seats, SCREAMBOX is bringing back the second season of the pandemic thriller “The Island.”

“The acquisitions of SCREAMBOX and Bloody Disgusting over the past 2 years have solidified our position as a leading industry force in horror,” said Chris McGurk, Chairman & CEO of Cinedigm. “We look to build on this success and super-serve the huge horror enthusiast base with more key titles and podcasts similar to the breakout film Terrifier 2. This includes the upcoming theatrical release of The Outwaters, the “Mayfair Watcher’s Society” podcast and a broad array of catalog titles on SCREAMBOX. Expect more announcements soon as we continue to invest in horror to further propel the Company’s rapid growth within this genre.” 

Fans can look forward to these titles and so much more as SCREAMBOX looks to make 2023 its biggest year yet.
