What’s new on Shudder in May 2023

Horror is dominating the media landscape right now. At the movies, M3GAN rang in the new year with a bang (and a few kills), while Knock at the Cabin and Scream 6 have been #1 hits. Recently, the latest Evil Dead movie, Evil Dead Rise, premiered to better-than-expected grosses and critical notices.

Streaming is now different, with Skinamarink making waves for its quiet, creepy atmosphere and Hulu’s Clock getting widespread attention for its unique approach to horror. What better way to celebrate the genre than with Shudder, the most recognizable horror streamer around? In May 2023, their programming includes some French horror classics, new episodes of its original series Slasher: Ripper, and the debuts of the 2023 films Consecration and the Sundance hit Influencer. Summer may be upon us, but it’s always time for a good horror movie.

Here’s an excerpt from DT”s review of the film: “What you’re left with is a confused climax that wastes all of the goodwill that was built up at the beginning. Smith clearly is influenced by horror movies of the past, and it’s not too much of a stretch to believe that Consecration could have joined The Wicker Man and Midsommar as classics in the ‘isolated community horror’ subgenre.

But the story lets all involved down by being unfocused and unsure of what it wants to be. What was initially promised as a deep exploration of the violent nature of faith, or even a high-class copy of The Omen, turns out to be a whole lot of hokum. I’m usually fine with that, but it has to be backed by a confidence in what the movie is trying to do. That’s what is missing in Consecration, and that’s a sin even God can’t forgive.”

What time is the Super Bowl today? Full event schedule
what time is the super bowl 2023 teaser image

Tonight is the night, it's game time, and the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Kansas City Chiefs at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. You could say this one is for all the marbles, this year anyway. It's likely that you know all the details behind Super Bowl LVII as a big sports fan, but there's one minor detail that everyone should know, and that's the all-important Super Bowl time. When will FOX -- this year's Super Bowl host -- be airing the event, and when can you expect to see the Eagles vs Chiefs live stream available if you're planning to watch the Super Bowl online for free this year.
What time is the Super Bowl today?
Super Bowl LVII is scheduled to start at 6:30 PM (EST) tonight and will be airing first and foremost on FOX and through the FOX Sports App. You'll also be able to watch the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show, featuring Rihanna this year, through those same channels.

The good news is that, maybe every year from now on, it doesn't matter what channel the big game is airing on if you want to watch it online. It's totally possible to tune in, for free, and legally this year. We'll tell you exactly how to do that, but you should also know, you're not locked into any particular method -- you can stream using whatever app works best for you, whether that's YouTube TV, Sling TV, or our top pick, FuboTV.
What time is the Super Bowl Halftime show?
While it's impossible to accurately predict what time the Super Bowl Halftime Show will kick off, because the length of the game determines true times, we can infer based on the schedule. Kick-off for the game begins at 6:30 PM (EST), and the first half is estimated to last about 90 minutes, give or take a few minutes for delays and stoppages. That means, the Super Bowl LVII Halftime Show should begin sometime around 8:00 PM (EST), with a performance that lasts about 13 minutes long, featuring Rihanna and other surprise guests.
How to watch the Super Bowl live stream online
In line with online streaming opportunities in general, you have quite a few choices as to when and where you can tune in. (Just note that none of them is NFL Sunday Ticket.) You’re not locked into any particular service. You may use Hulu with Live TV, Sling TV, YouTube TV, and many more, or even our top pick, FuboTV. Some services may require an active and premium subscription, so if you choose one that does, make sure you're all signed up before the big game. You don't want to miss out on quality sports because you're busy fumbling with streaming services, their apps, and setting up new accounts. Be sure to install the necessary apps on the devices you want to watch from, and make sure you're signed into an account too.

Best horror movies on HBO Max
Georgina Campbell crawls up a metal staircase in Barbarian.

While there’s never a better time to watch all our favorite horror films than October, HBO Max’s prolific lineup of genre titles is worth sinking your teeth into all year round. And like any streamer, the door is always rotating, with new titles landing on the platform from month to month while others leave. 

That being said, it can be hard to keep up with all the greatest scary flicks HBO Max offers, which is where we come in. As devotees of all things mad, macabre, and cringe-inducing (housed safely under the label of “a movie”, of course), we’ve put together this list of the best horror movies on HBO Max you can watch right now.
