It’s okay... 3/5
This could be a lot better.
A lot of the movies are OLD, but there’s plenty of them that are international and worth checking out.
I hate their tech though. The app always logs me Out and is a pain to log back in. Their software can definitely use some work.
Great app video preview while scrolling is missing 4/5
By Nani ka
Great app for horror and thriller movies. Great selection of movies from different countries. Only thing is missing is the preview of video at when scrolling to a particular video time.
A MUST-HAVE FOR GENRE FANS!!! 5/5
By Scott in Salem, Oregon
If you are a “true” horror fan this is a channel that will satisfy!!
Was going to subscribe, however I can’t cast it to my tv via chrome cast. Sorry, but it’s a no go for me.
A lot of Iconic Titles Missing 3/5
What!!? No Friday the 13th, No Evil Dead, No The Exorcist, no Child’s Play or Last House on the Left? There’s Halloween 1 and 4 but not the most recent movie released in 2018. Those need to be on there. Watched one episode of Creepshow, which I really enjoyed. I’ll try it and see how my experience goes for the duration of the free trial. Thankfully, Jo Bob is on there, which is why I’m a new subscriber, so hold on to him, Shudder...he’s attracting new subs like me.
Oh the pleasures 5/5
By mad dog tim
Such great content. You won’t face the same date as pinhead for decades
More content 4/5
I love watching movies and series on Shudder. Just wish there was more to watch on the app. Also wish there was a better set up for the app on Amazon FireStick.

MORE OF A MOVIE SELECTION WOULD MAKE THIS APP THE BEST APP
Performs as expected. 4/5
Does everything the way it’s supposed to. Solid mix of well known movies, hidden gems, and everything in between. Particularly like the Shudder TV feature.
The Best App Out There!! 👍🏻👌🏻 5/5
Shudder is a Netflix but horror movies thriller suspense and dark drama movies, this is the best Netflix like app out there I even have to say better than Netflix 100% recommend shudder to anyone who is a horror fan a thriller suspense fan or drama or if you’re none of those I still recommend it it’s that good one week free 599 a month after that that’s a hell of cheap compared to Netflix Amazon prime and many others 100% recommend shudder.
Love it! 5/5
Love all selections including the awesome original content! Love A Discovery of Witches show and Creep show! The mix old and new movies is awesome. Already told family and friends to get it!
Only thing I would change is make it where we can throw it up on the tv like Netflix and YouTube do
Love Shudder and want more! 5/5
By jodie in NY
I especially like Joe Bob Briggs- the season was too short! Also, on the app I wish you had 3 channels to choose from just like the TV app on Roku. Really fun, great value! 5 stars!

5 for content 1 for functionality 3/5
By Count Floyd!!!
I couldn’t imagine better content than what Shudder provides. It is well worth the subscription. However, the app is dismal (on all platforms). It doesn’t remember what’re I last left off, thinks I’m still watching content I have finished, won’t set next episode for series and doesn’t include series in “continue watching”
5 stars 5/5
I rated 5 because the concept behind it is awesome im not really a huge horror lover but i do enjoy watching some here and there and this app lets me have that 👋🏽🤓
Great Service for Horror Fans 5/5
Shudder is like Netflix but strictly horror movies and series. Movies are all in great quality, no performance issues, and easy navigation. The service is great if you are wanting to easily watch scary movies. I’ve seen movies that are from the 70s to new 2020 releases. I watch on my phone and my laptop and have never had an issue. Highly recommend.
There are only two problems I have with the service. The number of movies actually available. I’ve watched a good chunk of the movies on the app. To be fair Shudder does regularly upload new movies. Number two is that the reviews people leave for the movies can be toxic.
Good channel 4/5
By 455 hp
The the selection of movies, the more disturbing the better👍. The only complaint is sometimes I have to sign out and sign back in because it seems to forget I have my monthly subscription set up for auto renewal.
Wonderfully spooky app 5/5
I watch on Apple TV and my device. Lots of original and exclusive content but some movies that are available elsewhere. Well worth the low subscription price. I like to subscribe occasionally especially in October but the brutal content can get a bit much after a while. Suggestion: Sam o Lantern is awesome slow tv. We have even watched in foreground. Any chance you could make it longer or create a Sam o Lantern channel for Halloween? Thanks.
Canceled my Membership but was still charged for a full Year 1/5
Having to dispute it through my bank because the support ticket, is t going anywhere so far no response from shudder, really wasn’t all that good and having this on top of the lack of programming is adding insult to injury 1/10 👎🏼
Paying, but can’t access 1/5
Locked me out of my account, let me back in, but I can’t watch anything. I try to “buy” my subscription, but then says I’m already subscribed. Charges my card. So I’m paying them, but they’re not letting me watch anything. I’ve tried contacting them several times for help, but no response. Do not buy this app!!! Do not support this company!!! If I wasn’t required to put one star, I’d give it zero stars!!!!!
I adore this app. Its constantly rotating library brings the best of cult classics and modern indie horror. I originally got this just to watch Joe Bob Briggs on The Last Drive-In but found myself opening the app habitually whenever I wanted to watch a film after work. The only downside is that the catalogue at present isn’t huge and could use some more mainstream classics but in the current market I understand why film licensing can be very difficult for those that aren’t Netflix or Hulu.
Terrible UI 2/5
By Good Gran
Decent movie selection, and I love that it tells you what language the movie is in. However, the user interface is way behind the current technology. There’s no way to remove movies from Now Watching, other than to fast forward to the end, like you’re watching a video in 1992! Crazy, seeing that this is an offshoot of AMC.
Fantastic streaming service 5/5
By Beard of Horrors
Awesome streaming services for true horror heads, and also for people who are casual horror fans. I love that they have the live television options up, that are always playing films in the slasher section, supernatural and etc. I think this is a must have for all the true horror heads out there
Shudder changed the game 5/5
Shudder is by far the greatest and most used app on my phone. From cheesy campy thrillers to bone chilling horror; you will find exactly what you’re looking for. You owe it to yourself to try shudder, you won’t be disappointed!!
HORRIBLE SCAM 1/5
By Angry Forced Subscriber
There is no such thing as a free trial!! You’re card will automatically be charged 56 dollars the yearly rate!! You don’t get to decide wether you like it or not then pay, you don’t get to decide if you want to pay for a month HORRIBLE!!
By K POW2
I had really great hopes for this app.. I guess I watch to many horror movies. I am going to give it a few more months, and hope we get some new content. I really enjoyed Shudder for the first month maybe two. I really don’t watch it any more, just log in to to see all of the same old titles looking back at me..
I’m a horror Junkie 4/5
My only complaint about this app... is the fact that playback resume is glitchy when syncing across the phone app and the other versions (amazon fire, xbox)
By lakeisha briggs
I absolutely love Shudder. I really enjoy the older movies from the 60s-80s.
They are classics. Vincent Price left a huge mark on the horror industry. If you enjoy horror flicks, this is the channel for you.
Enjoy! And the price is less expensive than other apps.
NOT FREE 3/5
By Skynner McGee
If you're expecting "free with commercials", it isn't.
This is a paid subscription service.
Shudder is great good content for a goth kid like me!!
Need to get more movies 2/5
By Big tokes
I like it I got the year subscription and so far I’m enjoying the app. Oh yeah needs more up to date movies and please please please more blood machine episodes it’s mainly the reason why I subscribed in the first place thank you
Top 3 Streaming Service 5/5
Basically if you’re a fan of the Horror, Thriller, Suspense or Sci-Fi genres of movies, you must subscribe to SHUDDER. The bottom line is it’s an amazing value and has the content month after month to keep you coming back!
Keeps repeatedly logging me out 1/5
I’ve went through this over and over with customer care and the app locked me out every time I leave
do it 5/5
i've found the best movies ever on here i wouldn't of found anywhere else. soooo many gems from the 80s, &international goodies .. i am obsessed.shudder is a must if you like horror and thrillers!!!
Excellent content, but app is buggy 4/5
If you like horror, youll love Shudder. What really seperates them from other sreaming services though (i cancelled NF after i got this) is a couple key features:
1) Streaming channels. No longer need to log on with an agenda. Have it on in background and maybe something will catch your interest that you never thought would.
2) Leaving soon section. Very suprized this is the first service i noticed to have this integrated in the app. No longer will you missout on something you kinda wanted to watch.
3) Sense of community. Horror fans are nuts. Many viewing partys to be had online, and Shudder caters to them. They know, and they cater the channels to them
4) Content. Joe Bob is worth the subscription. The selection of movies and series is also great. It isnt overwhelming so you dont get lost in a massive library, and actually, if motivated, i would say its possible to get through everything. As it sits now, my list is about 50 movies, with 5 new movies coming out each week.
5) Constantly updated lists. They have sections that i assume are seasonal. It moved from Summer movies to Halloween hits. Makes it enjoyable to find stuff that fits the mood.
Now the bad:
The App is glitchy. Nothing that cant be fixed, but it is quite noticable. Just minor problems, like items in your list staying there after you remove, and scrolling is sometimes disconnected (movie image does not match movie description). Search function in apple TV app has background same color as letters so its tough to type.
Thats it. Content alone, itll either be your thing or not. Joe Bob says “Check it out”
By Mo Freeapps
For some reason I am being billed 59.60 and I didn’t sign up for an annual contract. I only wanted monthly with the free week.
I also have no way of changing password thru the app - when I try to do this I am never sent the “change PW” email. Only reason I am doing this is because I signed up on iPhone but iPad watching isn’t happening because I CANNOT LOG IN.
I have asked for help 3 times now regarding these issues and get ZERO customer service. So I’m going to post this in the App Store so others are aware.
Also: is there really a need to do like 10 captchas ? Especially when I’m already kind of mad about the other things not working?
10 more captchas later. . .
It’s ok 2/5
This app is supposed to have every scary movie that you want to see so everyone says but it doesn’t and the namebrand scary movies they do have they only let you see maybe one out of how ever many episodes they have of that particular movie this whole app is really full of their shudder original movies I would like to see more Freddy Krueger Jason Michael Myers all the old-school scary movies from the 80s and they should allow you to watch more than one or two of them
Not what I expected at all 2/5
I though Shudder was for horror films that were newer. These movies are all incredibly low budget, from the 70s/80s, or just not good. I only downloaded the app and did a free trial to try it and now I can’t cancel my free trial.
Love shudder!!!! Whether it’s catching an older gem, a shudder original or even catching up on Holliston Seasons 1&2 for the 10th time, it’s always buckets of fun!
Finally a place for horror 5/5
I’ve forever lamented that other streaming apps don’t have any good horror and dropped my Disney+ subscription to take on this. I’d do it over 1000x. I love the sub genre breakdowns and recommended lists.
Service itself is awesome, but please add a “remember this device” or face recognition function 4/5
I really love how I can stream Shudder straight to my TV from my phone with wonderful quality and virtually no delay, but it’s really tiring to manually log into the app again every time I close it, especially because all of my accounts have different passwords that are pretty long and time consuming to type. “Remember this device” or some other quick login function is all that’s keeping this from 5 stars from me
Will not play video on Apple TV 5/5
I love the app itself it’s great. It will play sound on screen mirror. It will not play video I’m pay 50$ for it and it will not play correctly tho. Any help would be nice ty.
Literally stops working every two minutes 1/5
It has so many options to choose from, which is awesome, but I continued having to close it out and restart just for it to play to two more minutes
Pretty good. 4/5
The movie selection is actually really good: B+
- A wide range of random movies even foreign ones, BUT wish it had more of the classics, fan favorites, and popular ones. Add more shorts!! I like those.
It’s pretty easy to navigate: B+
-I think it would be cool if you were able to categorize the type of horror like slasher, creature feature, etc
My only issue. When I try to play a movie/show/short on my tv using the Apple adapter, it doesn’t seem to work.
Gr8 Xcept-🧟♿️ 1/5
Same as other reviewers r saying; gr8 content. Streams well. But THE REVIEWS SECTION! Somebody hire some actual human people 2 monitor the app! Seriously, ALL human people have gone MIA. No1 properly answers emails (u get an autom8ed “ticket” which never comes up ) & no1 has fixed the review disappearance bug. Fix it! Like yesterday.
It was a good app until it stopped working 2/5
I was an early adopter and have had this app since it first rolled out, and everything was great. The original programming was cool, and it was nice to find obscure titles that aren’t always on other streaming services. I renewed for a year about a month ago, and then suddenly the app started telling me that I needed a subscription to watch anything - even though I had paid up through August of 2021. I was running the current version on my iPhone and Apple TV, but still hit the paywall even though I paid. I submitted a trouble ticket to Shudder, but never got a response. So finally I just submitted a refund request through the Apple App Store and got my money back and deleted the app. Kind of a bummer, because I liked it, but if I’m paying for something I can’t use, it’s worthless.
Halloween is the wrong movie. 1/5
I subscribed to watch Rob Zombie’s remake of Halloween(2007) and the movie that played was the original 1978 version.
So i was looking specifically for the lost boys. It popped up like I could watch it on shudder so I downloaded the app and signed up for it just to not find the lost boys. Deleted.
