The Shudder streaming service has announced that the horror anthology sequel Scare Package II: Rad Chad’s Revenge will be available to watch as of December 22nd – and along with the release date announcement comes the unveiling of a trailer, which you can check out in the embed above! Genre fans will notice that the trailer is packed with homages to famous (or infamous, in some cases) horror films, including Saw, A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors, and the Wicker Man remake.
Our reviewer The Iceman called the first Scare Package (watch it HERE) “one of the best times I’ve had all year” and gave it a 9/10 review. Scare Package II: Rad Chad’s Revenge immediately follows the events of the original with the survivors attending the funeral of “Rad Chad” Buckley, which quickly devolves into an elaborate series of death traps centered around Chad’s favorite films, forcing the guests to band together and use the rules of horror to survive the bloody game.
Here’s some information on the sequel’s cast and directors, courtesy of Fangoria:
Co-created by Aaron B. Koontz and Cameron Burns, the comedic sequel brings back many of the first film’s most beloved characters, including Rad Chad himself, Jeremy King, Final Girl Jessie, played by Zoe Graham, and Rad Chad’s video store foil Sam, played by comedian Byron Brown.
Additional cast joining in on the madness include Rich Sommer (Summer of ’84), Kelli Maroney (Chopping Mall), Graham Skipper (Beyond The Gates), Maria Olsen (Starry Eyes), and Shakira Ja’nai Paye (the upcoming House Party reboot).
The sequel also features returning director Anthony Cousins, with a sequel to his previous segment entitled THE NIGHT HE CAME BACK AGAIN PART VI: THE NIGHT SHE CAME BACK, with star Chelsey Grant. New directors include veteran actress Alexandra Barreto (Mayans M.C.) with her segment WELCOME TO THE ’90S; Australian filmmaker Rachele Wiggins (Deadhouse Dark) with the segment WE’RE SO DEAD; UK filmmaker Jed Shepherd with his segment SPECIAL EDITION, which reunites him with cast members from Shudder’s sensation Host, which he co-wrote and produced.
Aaron B. Koontz and Cameron Burns produced Scare Package II: Rad Chad’s Revenge with Ashleigh Snead and Alex Euting. Shawn Talley and Farrell Rose co-produced for Paper Street Pictures.
