Screambox Relaunches With More Content, New Interface

Jeff Kotuby

Not unlike the 13 Halloween movies that will likely have a home of some kind on it, Cinedigm is bringing back another subscription-based channel from the dead. Screambox, a horror-focused streaming service, has a new look, just in time for Halloween.

Cinedigm announced the move following its recent acquisition of Bloody Disgusting, a news outlet that covers horror films, television shows, and more. As part of the acquisition, the Bloody Disgusting team will be managing the Screambox subscription-based service going forward. This includes leveraging their knowledge of the horror genre to curate content within the streaming channel. As an additional added value, the Bloody Disgusting TV channel will also be featured within the new Screambox.

“The acquisition of Screambox allows us to leverage our proprietary technology to better manage and operate the channel at scale,” said Tony Huidor, Cinedigm’s Chief Technology & Product Officer. “With the addition of Screambox to our channel portfolio along with our growing investments in the horror genre, we have an opportunity to reach a loyal fanbase of horror fans and solidify our position as a leader in the horror genre within the OTT space.”

Cinedigm also announced it was acquiring new original content to bolster the channel’s catalog of exclusives and digital premieres. Knifecorp, starring horror icon Kane Hodder, slashed its way into homes this past September as a Screambox Exclusive. The highly anticipated 8-part original series The Island will transport audiences to a disease-ridden island off the coast of Europe this October. Cinedigm also recently acquired Brain Freeze, the “zom-com” favorite that opened this year’s Fantasia International Film Festival. Its premiere on Friday, August 13th made it one of the channel’s most-watched films on the platform.

Cinedigm has been very aggressive in its new content offerings over the past year, launching and reviving brands of all different genres. In August, Cinedigm announced it was reviving Robert Rodriguez's El Rey Network as a streaming service. Just two months prior, the company announced it was reviving Fandor, an independent film subscription streaming service it acquired earlier this year. Also in June, the company announced a dedicated Elvis Presley streaming channel was on the horizon.

All this is in addition to the Bob Ross channel that launched back in 2020, which should serve as a perfect contrast to Screambox’s content offerings.
