  • Slim selection

    I was hoping for a larger selection. They do have some classics available. However I think I’d be better off purchasing the movies I want to see on dvd. I like the concept, it just needs a better selection.
  • New feature

    Shudder has added 10 second back and forward buttons! Thanks Shudder!!!! I also like that when you pause now it stays on the movie. Just keeps getting better.

    I actually cancelled my subscription last month then got a surprise that I was charged for another month. The movies are decent but I don't like being charged when I cancel.
  • A very worthwhile little outfit

    I like niche film genres and horror/suspense is one of my favorites. Shudder is really just getting going but they are scouring the world for unique gems and oddities along with what they can land in the main US/British market. I tried them on a lark about five months ago and I always check them first before going to the big-name streaming services for content. While there are a lot of movies I would suggest they try to land from the older catalog of horror classics I’m still nowhere near caught up with all the things I want to watch that they currently offer.

    I really do not understand shudder anymore. This app started out very promising with much more movies on shudder. Now most of the quality horror and thriller films that were once there are gone. Now in there place we get old, boring, dated movies, too many foreign films, and dramas. Many of the movies are offered on most of the free movie sites anyhow. At this point you can find better and more updated horror on Netflix or amazon. Try putting on films that are actually horror that are from this decade. Also, I watch a lot of foreign films and even I’m getting sick of it. This used to be my favorite movie streaming app but the last year has been pitiful. Please bring back the old shudder soon or I will not be renewing my subscription.
  • I really enjoy Shudder!

    When Chiller ended, there was an empty spot on television. So then I found out about Shudder. I downloaded it in the AppStore and have been watching it ever since. I cast it to my TV, watch on my phone or iPad, and on my Fire Stick. I really enjoy the international shows. I’m a Shudder fan from now on!
  • Yeah I’m in

    I’ve been feasting on an awesome, non double dipping, not amazon prime / Netflix . The reviews are new and the listings are always s heavily debated on fresh review by boards
  • Awesome

    I love this thing. It’s annoying to rifle through all the regular movies in Netflix or something when all I want is a scary movie (it’s almost all I watch). This makes it easy.
  • Chromecast has never worked for me.

    Love the app, but I can’t give it a better review because I’ve never once been able to stream the app on Chromecast. I’m just lucky to have a Roku where I can use the Shudder channel.
  • SHUDDER, a streaming service for horror fans. Much better than Netflix!

    This is an update to my original review (see the text below the line of asterisks), in which I gave SHUDDER 4 stars. I am now giving it only 1. UPDATE: June 2018... If I could, I would give SHUDDER ZERO stars in its current form. After letting my SHUDDER subscription lapse several months ago, I doubt if I’ll be renewing it anytime soon - if ever... Has anyone noticed that SHUDDER’S title now reads, “SHUDDER - Horror and Thrillers”? On the day someone (AMC, SHUDDER’S Parent Company, I suppose) decided that it would be good for their bottom line, apparently - to flood SHUDDER with mystery programming, which included BBC mysteries, for Heaven’s sake - I knew doing so would *not* be good for horror fans, like myself. Why? Because, with very few exceptions, I *HATE* mysteries! They are just *not* “my cup of tea”, so to speak. If they’re yours - fine. My husband loves reading mystery novels and that’s great - but, I don’t. I never have. The problem with SHUDDER as it now exists - is that the people who focus on increasing profits obviously don’t know the first thing about whatever fandom they’re providing a service to, in the first place. They “adjust” the programming into whatever the marketing executives *think* will widen the audience, until the end result is something completely unrecognizable from whatever made it successful in the first place! Then, the fans like me, go away because what made us loyal viewers of the channel in the first place is now almost nonexistent. The programming heads add a bunch of shows and movies that have absolutely nothing to do with the genre we love... The viewers continue to fall off and the profits decline. Next, someone decides that the genre the channel was made for in the first place just doesn’t work, and they let the channel (or, service) die a slow death. In my opinion, this is what has happened with SHUDDER. The mystery fans can always get their mysteries on some other service, like Netflix, etc. Why would anyone assume that a mystery fan, is automatically going want to sit through gory movies like “Basket Case”, “Phantasm”, “The Evil Dead”, “Night of the Living Dead” or “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” after they’ve just watched a genteel cerebral Scotland Yard murder mystery? Those kinds of mysteries don’t usually attract fans of blood and gore and vice versa. Last year or so, SHUDDER conducted a survey asking subscribers for suggestions on attracting more viewers. I didn’t really know, but, as far as I am concerned, adding mysteries and thrillers which absolutely would not be classified as being part of the horror genre and then changing its description from “Horror” to “Horror and Thrillers” (apparently to justify the change) was definitely *not* the way to go. I wonder whether changing the nature of a horror-only streaming service like SHUDDER, from “Horror” to “Horror and Thrillers” by adding programs that have nothing to do with the Horror genre, like mysteries, etc., will work out in the end? Sometimes, there really is an advantage to “doing one thing and doing it well.” Or, at least, “Not throwing the baby out with the bath water.” Will SHUDDER’s gamble to attract more viewers by abandoning its identity as the “First ever Horror-only streaming service”, pay off? Only time will tell... **************************************************************** I have been a SHUDDER subscriber for over a year, now. SHUDDER is a MUCH better streaming service to have - if you are a horror fan - than Netflix. Although SHUDDER does not offer "first run" horror movies at this time [I find the really good ones now are few and far between, anyway], SHUDDER does seem to have more horror movies than Netflix streaming. As a horror fan for 50 years - I'm 54 - most of the time, I can find a horror movie worth watching [that I haven't seen 10 times before] on SHUDDER - again, unlike Netflix. SHUDDER also has exclusives - like Netflix - but, unlike Netflix streaming, SHUDDER'S exclusives are all in the horror genre. I can always find a horror movie worth watching on SHUDDER. Not every movie fits my tastes, but - again unlike Netflix - I can practically guarantee that there is one, in fact, worth watching. Each horror movie comes under a heading. If you like horror comedies, serial killers, ghosts, mutants, mutant animals, sci-fi horror, Asian horror, zombies, even some Hammer horror...the list goes on and on. It's easy to find something to your liking. SHUDDER'S list of horror sub-genres is like a menu at an All You Can Eat horror movie buffet. And, it's cheaper than Netflix. Whether you like horror comedies, supernatural horror, Asian horror, ghost stories, classic horror movies, "creature features", "midnight madness" type of drive-in horror movies, or movies by legendary names in horror, like Romero, Argento, Barker, Fulci, etc., you can always find a horror movie worth watching on SHUDDER. Their collections are curated by horror connoisseurs. I watch SHUDDER using the app on Apple TV. It also plays on other IOS devices, like my iPad Pro. You subscribe through iTunes. I am not sure why, but lately, (as of this writing, on May 25, 2017) I have noticed that sometimes, I can't always get a movie to stream right away from my Apple TV on my Samsung smart TV - but that has never happened before. Sometimes, I have to air play a program from my iPad Pro to my TV screen using "screen mirror". That's the ONLY reason I gave the app 4 stars, instead of 5. SHUDDER is the best streaming service for horror fans. Cheaper...and better. I highly recommend it!
