hudder debuted last Autumn in the UK and Ireland, and aims to be the premium video streaming service for all horror fans and is dedicated to serving both the casual and hardcore fans of horror. It also offers a ton of new premieres and Shudder exclusives every month Including Rob Zombie's 31 and Beyond The Wall .
Shudder says that 80% percent of its 200+ launch selections of Horror, Mystery, Suspense, Supernatural and Thrillers are not currently available on any of the big UK streaming platforms ( i.e Amazon, Netflix and Sky Movies) which will be a big plus for the site. On first glance Shudder looks very nice. The site is sleek and easy to navigate. The current selection, although small, includes so great titles new and old, including some very hard to find films and even the recent Lost Souls documentary we reviewed last month. SHUDDER will be available for a one-week free trial with a £4.99 monthly price point, or you could pay £49.99 for a yearly membership.
he site curators TIFF Midnight Madness programmer Colin Geddes and former Fangoria editor Sam Zimmerman know a thing or two about the horror genre who, along with regular guest curators, handpick the best in modern and classic horror unlocking a treasure trove of terror for SHUDDER subscribers. Colin Geddes has been selecting cutting-edge films for the Toronto International Film Festival since 1998, where he's in charge of the Midnight Madness and Vanguard programs. Sam Zimmerman is the voice of the people in a sorts and is representing the horror community with his years of experience as Web Editor at Fangoria and his more recent role as Managing Editor at Shock Till You Drop.
With such big names on board I can see Shudder becoming bigger and bigger as the months go by. I personally love the site. I have been working my way through a few of the titles over the last few days. The streaming is perfect, the choice is great and I love the Shudder TV aspect as well. If you love horror than this is the streaming service you have been waiting for.
