Is AMC’s Horror-Movie Streaming Service Shudder Any Good? 16 July 2015

AMC Shudder

 

Good news, fear fans: AMC’s horror-centric video on demand streaming service, Shudder, is in open beta. Adrenaline junkies can now sign up and instantly stream as many horror movies as they want for a 14-day free trial period. After that, it’ll cost $4.99 per month, or $49.99 per year. In addition to the online movie library, there’s also Shudder.tv, which is basically a streaming channel with a never-ending lineup of horror movies. Let the streaming (and screaming) begin!

Free trials are great, but is Shudder worth paying for?

The curated collections are really cool.

More than anything on the service, curated collections illustrate the general philosophy that seems to underpin Shudder.

There’s no search function. Yet.

According to an official press release, additional features and enhancements, including search, will be added during the open beta phase. For now, however, horror aficionados must find appealing movies either through the home page—which advertises recently added movies, as well as featured collections and staff picks—or through the site’s sorting and filtering functions.

The selection’s off to a good start.

Depending on personal taste, Shudder’s beta selection is pretty promising. Classics like Nosferatu sit alongside newer hits like Let the Right One In and A Tale of Two Sisters.

Of course, more subscribers would theoretically mean more money to license more movies. Considering how limited our other options are, we’re inclined to urge anyone who loves horror to give Shudder a chance. Because we deserve better than Netflix, and if nothing else, Shudder kills Netflix on selection.
