Slasher: Ripper: A Dark and Gory Trailer for the Shudder and AMC+ Exclusive

It’s been a while since we’ve had a good horror series to grab our attention.

Our wait will soon be over, because Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thrillers, and the supernatural, released a new trailer today, and it’s so juicy!

The long-awaited return of a successful franchise is just weeks away with the arrival of Slasher: Ripper.

Slasher: Ripper debuts with a two-episode premiere Thursday, April 6 on Shudder and AMC+, with new episodes released weekly on Thursdays.

Slasher: Ripper takes the franchise back to the late 19th century.

It follows Basil Garvey (Eric McCormack, Will & Grace), a charismatic tycoon whose success is rivaled only by his ruthlessness, as he oversees a city on the cusp of a new century, and a social upheaval that Blood will be seen running red on its streets.

There’s a killer stalking the mean streets, but instead of targeting the poor and downtrodden like Jack the Ripper, the Widow is waging justice against the rich and powerful.

The only person standing in this killer’s way is the newly promoted detective, Kenneth Rijkers, whose unwavering belief in justice may be The Widow’s yet another victim.

Claire McConnell (Star Trek: Discovery), Thom Allison (Killjoy), Daniel Kash (Aliens), and Sadie Laflamme-Snow (The Way Home) round out the cast.

And what a cast it is!
