Shudder Review

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 Xbox, Roku, Android TV, Apple TV, Web Browsers, Android Phone/Tablet, iPhone/iPad, Google Chromecast, and Amazon Fire 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.

TV Shows

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.


Shudder’s library is a deep dive into horror staples with entries such as Amityville 1992: It’s About Time, Dig Two Graves, and 80’s genre classics like Elvira: Mistress of the Dark.

The platform also includes original movies like teen slasher The Ranger, paranormal horror-comedy Deadtectives, and Indonesian thriller May The Devil Take You Too.
