Shudder has sent out a press release detailing the movies and TV shows coming to the premium streaming service in March. Those looking for classics can get their fix with both Gremlins movies and Army of Darkness, while there will also be plenty of original content. In addition to a brand new Critters TV show coming on March 21, Joe Bob Briggs will return to host a weekly double feature with The Last Drive-In starting on March 29.

Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich (March 7): “Recently divorced and reeling, Edgar returns to his childhood home and finds a nefarious looking puppet in his deceased brother’s room. He decides to sell the doll for some quick cash. Girl-next-door Ashley and and comic book pal Markowitz join Edgar for a doomed road trip to an auction at a convention celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. All hell breaks loose when a strange force animates the puppets at the convention, setting them on a bloody killing spree that’s motivated by
an evil as old as time. Rebooting 80s favorite PUPPET MASTER into a gloriously wrong gem, PUPPET MASTER: THE LITTLEST REICH is the goriest good time of the year. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.”

Critters: A New Binge (March 21): “WORLD PREMIERE! This Shudder Exclusive horror-comedy series picks up the tale of the Critters, everyone’s favorite hairy, carnivorous, insatiable aliens from the beloved film franchise. Pursued by intergalactic bounty hunters, the Critters return to Earth on a secret mission and encounter lovelorn
high-schooler Christopher (Joey Morgan, Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse), his crush Dana (Stephi Chin-Salvo, iZOMBIE), his best friend Charlie (Bzhaun Rhoden, Van Helsing), and his mom Veronica (Kirsten Robek, The Edge of Seventeen), whose past will come back to bite them—literally. The series also features Gilbert Gottfried (Aladdin) and Thomas Lennon (Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich).”
