Shudder is a streaming video service specializing in horror, thriller and supernatural fiction titles. The service has a vast library of both classic and contemporary films as well as new, original programming such as Wolf Creek, and Slaxx. Shudder also benefits from content courtesy of AMC including Eli Roth's History of Horror and fan-favorite zombie survival series The Walking Dead. The platform is available to users in the U.S., Canada, the UK, New Zealand, Australia, and Ireland.
Shudder is available at a subscription rate of US$5.99 / month. However, a subscription of US$56.99 / year upfront works out to $4.75 a month for those who are confident in their unwavering appetite for quirky slashers and genre-bending sci-fi.
We recommend adding Shudder as a channel through Amazon Prime Video for maximum flexibility.
We tested Shudder and other subscription streaming services for more than 100 hours. Shudder is compatible with Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Google Chromecast, Roku, Android TV, iPhone/iPad, Android Phone/Tablet, Mac, Windows, Xbox, LG Smart TV, Samsung Smart TV, Sony Smart TV and VIZIO Smart TV.
Shudder has growing collection of original, international content from full length features to episodic and documentary-style programming. Horror-themed anthology shows such as Creepshow and the upcoming Deadhouse Dark appeal directly to the platform’s target audience and set it apart from other providers.
Original movies including Dogs Don't Wear Pants, Blood Quantum, and South Korean demonic possession flick Metamorphosis further differentiate Shudder’s niche programming from its more mainstream competitors.
Shudder strives to be the go-to platform for the appreciation of legacy and original horror and thriller content. Cursed Films dives into the stories behind Hollywood movies reported to have been “cursed.” The Last Drive-in with Joe Bob Briggs explores behind the scenes details of the titular host’s favorite B-movies. Sci-fi series Missions and the neo-noir Deadwax round out the collection.
