One streaming service taking advantage of the quarantine from the coronavirus outbreak is the horror-themed streamer Shudder. The SVOD service posted their latest promotion on Twitter. Instead of the typical seven-day free trial, Shutter is extending their trial to 30-days with the promo code "SHUTIN." The network also posted a still of Ben (Duane Jones) from Night of the Living Dead trying to reinforce his barricade.
