Why Horror SuperFans Are Flocking To Shudder For All Their Favorites

Most streaming on-demand services have a "scary movie" section, but the options are pretty limited when it comes to true thriller and suspense. So, what's a horror buff to do? How are you supposed to find new movies without having to scour Reddit for the latest sites and risk downloading a virus, or without having to buy it on DVD (and even then, they aren't usually readily available)? Well, this is how many felt until Shudder.

What is Shudder?

Shudder is a subscription streaming service that gives you unlimited access to a unique collection of horror, thriller, and suspense films and series. It is niche entertainment at its finest.

Is it only horror films?

No, the breadth of content on Shudder is vast, and is much more than just horror - from the cult classics to the blockbuster hits.

What's the selection like?

Shudder has an ever-growing inventory of films and series, as well as many exclusives you can't find anywhere else. Not only that, you can discover the classics and gems that were once considered lost for good.

The best part is only members can post reviews, which means you'll get access to expert opinions from true fans.

How are the movies and series picked?
