Are you a massive horror fan, unlike me? Then you may be interested to learn that the cult horror-focused streaming service Shudder is now available in Australia.

Originally founded in 2015, Australian horror fans have been jealously watching on as users in the US, Canda and UK have enjoyed this AMC-owned service. Now Aussies can pay $6.99 a month or pay $69.99 a year (which equates to $5.83 a month) to access all Shudder has to offer.

While the catalogue does look a little lite, there are a large number of Shudder Original series and films including Host, a horror film set in a zoom call that has gotten a lot of internet buzz. New Zealand’s Māori–theme supernatural series The Dead Lands is also on the service as well as the anthology series Creepshow, a continuation of the Creepshow franchise, which received a 97% on Rotten Tomatoes.


While this service is not aimed at me, I may just use the free one week trial to check out the budget Japanese zombie comedy One Cut of the Dead. The documentaries series Eli Roth’s History of Horror, Robert Kirkman’s Secret History of Comics and James Cameron’s Story of Science Fiction all seem like interesting watches.

Shudder is out now and is available on Google Play, Apple App Store, Amazon TV, Roku and Xbox One.
