See What's Inside – Watch. Scream. Repeat

What Is Screambox?

Screambox is the leading streaming service for real die-hard horror fans.

More than 100,000 Screamers have already joined and discovered exclusive content not available on any other subscription streaming service — and that number is growing faster than a pile of dead bodies after a high school prom.

What’s the Draw?

There are a lot of reasons, but here are the top three we hear from subscribers.

  1. We’re 100% Fan Focused

    Screambox is an independent streaming service built by horror fans for other fans. We are not a vanilla, corporate entity, which means we can offer both top horrors and thrillers that mainstream audiences know, as well as programming that other services won’t touch.

    More than 70% of Screambox titles aren’t available for streaming on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, or Shudder — with new content added every week.

    We talk to our subscribers regularly and they consistently tell us that they stay with Screambox because we offer such a unique and diverse selection. As a horror fan, you probably own the big names already — movies featuring Freddy, Jason, and the like — but to be able to discover and watch these underground films is the real treat.

  2. Accessibility — Watch Anytime, Anywhere

    You can watch 500+ movies and shows on more than 80 million connected TVs and 100 million mobile devices in the US. Subscribers can view content on any connected laptop, tablet or phone, or stream content using PlayStation, XBOX, Roku, Amazon Fire, Samsung TV, Apple TV, iOS, LeEco, or Android*. You can even subscribe directly via Amazon Channels.

  3. The Best Price on Earth (or the Fiery Pits of Hell)

    For less than the cost of renting a movie at your local video store (if you can still find one), you can watch unlimited, commercial-free movies and shows spanning all your favorite horror genres: from slashers to inhuman monsters, supernatural suspense to psychological thrillers, and even a number of extreme titles that were never released outside of independent theaters and festivals.

    Screambox delivers the films fans are dying to see — at a price everyone can afford:

    Plus, you can cancel at any time to avoid future monthly or annual charges. Find our APPS on Google Play or the Apple app store.

Shudder Trial & Subscription Plans

The Shudder TV channel is essentially an endless stream of randomly selected Shudder-owned content that anyone can watch for free via their website. However, to get access to their on-demand content and originals, you have to buy a Shudder subscription.

Shudder gives you full access to its entire catalog for free for 7 days by default – but you may be able to extend your trial if you can dig up a Shudder promo code. (I was able to extend my trial to 30 days by using the DAILY DEAL promo code, which I found on Reddit.)

Once you hit the big red “Start Your Free Trial” button, you can choose between two different subscription plans: a $48 annual plan and a $5 monthly subscription.

The monthly plan adds up to $60 over the span of the year, so if you’re a horror fanatic then it makes sense to go for the upgrade and save $12.

On the other hand, the style of horror that Shudder peddles is definitely not for everyone – so you may want to go with the monthly for a while to get a feel for it. You can always switch your subscription later if you decide that you want to pay $48 for a full year.

Device Compatibility

You can find the Shudder app lurking in five different app ecosystems: iTunes, Roku’s Channel Store, Microsoft’s app store, Google Play, and Amazon’s app store.

Expect some bugs and spontaneous crashes if you plan on using any of the Shudder apps. Right now, the Shudder app for iOS / Apple TV is the only one with decent ratings.

  • Google Play – 2000 reviews, 3/5 stars
  • Apple App Store – 1000 reviews, 4/55 stars
  • Roku Store – 2800 reviews, 3.5/5 stars
  • Xbox One / Microsoft – 3 reviews, 3 stars
  • Amazon App Store – 142 reviews, 3 stars

With over 700 titles and counting, Shudder has managed to stockpile more than twice as much horror content compared to the world’s largest on-demand video platform.

Because Shudder is backed by AMC, it likely has significant resources at its command. Like the titular monster in The Blob, it has been gobbling up movie and TV show licenses since its inception in 2015.

Shudder Originals & Exclusives

In addition to amassing a large vault of content from other producers, Shudder has also hatched a sizable batch of originals – but are Shudder’s home-grown horror flicks and shows actually any good? Let’s take a look at the trailers and find out what the critics are saying.
