Now Streaming On Shudder: Takashi Miike’s ‘Audition’

One of the best things about the horror streaming service Shudder is the depth and breadth of its catalogue. It features not only low-budget films that have been overlooked, but also classics of the international horror canon.

Takashi Miike is an incredibly prolific director, having helmed more than 90 films since he began his career in 1991. One of his most well-known movies is 1999’s Audition.

Get Out looking to hit #1 this weekend

If you’re a fan of horror films, this is a big weekend, as one of the most anticipated genre films in quite a while is hitting theatres. Will it make any impact at the box office? Here’s our prediction:

Get Out is the new thriller from Blumhouse and Jordan Peele, who is best known for his work as one half of the comedy duo Key and Peele. The trailers for this clearly socially conscious film have been absolutely stunning, and should be big drivers in getting a diverse audience to check out the film this weekend. Combined with a current 100% fresh standing at Rotten Tomatoes and its clear that Get Out is the film to beat. Look for a first place debut with $29 million.

Rings is the third entry into a franchise that began back in 2002 with The Ring. At the time, the film, about a haunted video tape that killed its viewers seven days after watching its contents, was a fairly big hit at the time, but that was 15 years ago and its fair to say few have been clamouring for a new instalment. Rings hasn’t been screened in advance for critics, and that’s never a good sign. On that note, look for a second place debut with $11.5 million.
