With Halloween quickly approaching the desire the binge-watch horror films is upon us. There is no better time to sign up for Shudder, AMC’s horror streaming service that they debuted in 2015. At New York Comic-Con this weekend, I got a chance to talk with Shudder representatives at their booth on the show floor.
Rest assured there is no better place for horror fans to get their fill of classics, and hard to find rarities than on Shudder. They provide the largest library of horror films, and new movies to their queue each week. Thanks to the service, I was able to see the cult-classic Society as well as the late Herschel Gordon Lewis’ original splatter-fest, Blood Feast.
Featuring collections like A-Horror, Foundations of Horror, Monster Mash, and Slashics, there is literally something for everyone. They have collections dedicated to classic directors like Mario Bava, Lucio Fulci, and Dario Argento, as well as guest collections from modern-day masters of macabre like The Witch director Robert Eggers and Fred Dekker (Monster Squad/Night of the Creeps). Coming soon, Shudder will have exclusive rights to Sadako vs. Kayako, a Freddy vs. Jason style mashup between the monsters from The Ring and Ju-On (The Grudge), respectively. The film is directed by Koji Shiraishi, acclaimed director of Noroi: The Curse and The Slit-Mouthed Woman.
Go to Shudder.com and get a 7-day free trial of their service and explore their collections. Then it’s just $4.99 a month, or the better option of $49.99 for the year. That’s barely over $4 a month for the best in horror streaming. Shudder is available on Roku, Google Play, chromecast, and is available on the App store.
