The Boulets have some ghoulish goods in store for us! The queens of darkness have produced a scripted television variety show to celebrate Halfway to Halloween. Waiting for October is something none of us have mastered, The Boulets have heard our anguished pleas and will give us a much-needed dose of spooky fun this April. We know and love The Boulets from their reality TV competitions The Boulet Brothers': Dragula and most recently The Boulet Brother's: Dragula Titans. This time, the Boulets draw inspiration from classic variety shows of yore and have invited their friends along for the ride. “We’re so thrilled that our first scripted project with Shudder is celebrating all things Halloween!,” said the Boulet Brothers (Dracmorda & Swanthula). “Like most of our fans, we have a difficult time waiting a full year to celebrate our favorite holiday, so we’ve pulled together an incredible group of actors, writers, and musicians to make this special the best Halloween special you’ve ever seen – even if we’re only halfway there!” Take a look at some of the guests confirmed so far:

Calling to mind the era of classic retro holiday variety shows, the program will be hosted by The Boulet Brothers, and will feature scripted skits, musical performances, and guest appearances from an impressive lineup of stars including David Dastmalchian (Dune, Suicide Squad) who co-produced the special, Kevin Smith (Clerks, Tusk), Emily Hampshire (Schitt’s Creek), Taran Killam (SNL), Matthew Lillard (Scream film series), Jorge Garcia (Lost), Steve Agee (Peacemaker), Barbara Crampton (Re-Animator, Chopping Mall), Felissa Rose (Sleepaway Camp), Katya (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Derek Mears (Friday the 13th, Swamp Thing), Satanic doo wop band Twin Temple, and Kendra Onixx, Koco Caine & Melissa Befierce (The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula). Additional guests to be announced.

With more guests to be announced! Holy moly, this is going to rule. The Boulet Brothers’ Halfway to Halloween TV Special will premiere on Shudder, AMC Networks’ premium streaming service for horror, thrillers and the supernatural, and AMC+ on Tuesday, April 25. Produced by The Boulet Brothers (through their production company Boulet Brothers’ Productions) in association with David Dastmalchian’s newly formed production company, Good Fiend Films. The Boulet Brothers are set to embark with the cast of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula: Titans on a national tour kicking off in early April.
