What is Shudder

The paid service has a nearly infinite supply of films for the horror connoisseur and casual viewer alike. It claims to have the “largest and fastest-growing selection of exclusive new releases and genre-defining classics.” They’re not wrong in the scope of their collection. Backed by AMC, Shudder has access to an extensive film library, exclusive releases, and has started creating original content as well, including movies, series, and podcasts.

- Apple TV

How Much is Shudder
Shudder provides endless hours of classic scares and thrills for just $5.99 per month. You can save a little money by signing up for a yearly membership for $56.99 (only $4.75 a month). You can try a 7-day free- trial to Shudder to see if you like it before subscribing. If you cancel before the trial ends, you will not be charged.
What’s on Shudder
Through AMC, the service includes recent hit series NOS4A2, Eli Roth’s History of Horror, and an exclusive uncut version of the series as well. No Walking Dead, however, as the popular zombie franchise is surely worth more to them on other subscription models.
Shudder has several nice features, including comment and review sections below every film’s info page, allowing for fellow viewers’ feedback. Shudder gives the subscriber the feeling of being among like-minded fans. Not only will you find typical horror genres like monsters, psychological, killers, and aliens, but there are collections cultivated for specific sub-genres. Choice collections include:
- Cult Classics
- Queer Horror
- Shudder Essentials
- Horror Noire
- Vengeance is Hers
- Horror 101 – Foundations
Each group of categories has multiple collections within them, so you can genuinely find your specific niche of Horror and thrillers. Perhaps one of the true highlights of the collection is the wide range of international horror films, from a good selection of Japanese and Korean Horror to many of the last few years’ excellent thrillers. And the Only on Shudder category contains nearly 100 titles, showcasing the site’s unique collection’s breadth.
Another nice feature on the website version of the service is Shudder TV. This streaming channel shows curated picks from the site’s collection back to back all day.
Shudder TV can be streamed through the website only, and not through device apps. However, there are several ways to get a browser on your TV. If you have a smart TV, you can open Shudder TV on your TV’s web browser. Other methods include broadcasting between devices, like AirPlay from your Apple mobile device to Apple TV, or via a Google Chromecast. The lowest-tech version uses an HDMI port on your laptop and TV to connect the two and watch your computer on the TV screen that way.
