Was eyeing up Shudder before I noticed the Arrow channel.

Edit.

99p for the first month. Fuck it I'm driving in.

Is there somewhere I can view the full Shudder UK catalogue without having to sign up?

Yeah it's on Amazon. At least on the PS4 you can look through the catalogue without signing up

EDIT - having said that I've no idea if shudder has more stuff outside of its Amazon channel in the UK.

Shudder is decent, but I find myself subbing for a month or so, watching everything I want to see, unsubscribing, then coming back later when they've added more stuff I want to see.

I enjoyed this until the ending which I thought was absolutely awful and unnecessarily mean-spirited. Really killed its comedy vibe.

I swear, as I was scrolling the page and Summer of 84 was brought up, the actual words I was thinking of typing in regards to the ending were "unnecessarily mean-spirited." To me, the film could have been a new generations Goonies. You could have done a few of these films with that cast. But that ending depressed the fuck out of me. It was nasty and short sighted.

I only see about 300 titles on Amazon Prime for Shudder and many of those are on Netflix and even YouTube. If that's their full selection then that's shite.

Yeah much like all the Amazon channels there is only a couple 100 titles much like Arrow. It's basically get the free trial then watch what you want. Maybe then sign up for a month when they put more stuff up. It's not like Netflix or Prime where there's a ton of shit. Then unsub asap.

I tend to watch stuff in small doses so I can see me getting plenty of time out of them. Lots of stuff I'll probably rewatch as well.

This is a decent thread that I've read and to be honest I'm not a big Horror fan, and it's a genre I usually avoid. Having said that, I love Us and Get Out. Is there anything else out there similar that I would like, or just smart horror films in general? Keen to expand my horror horizons. Not a love of slasher or gore so none of that. Cheers

A Quiet Place should tick those boxes

Maybe smart is the wrong word. I like the aforementioned films, and as Scorch recommended, A Quiet Place, I've seen that and enjoyed it. I suppose I mean psychological thriller/horrors rather than slash/gore titles.

I'm well aware that there are plenty of smart slasher/jump scare/gore horrors, they're just not my cup of tea that's all.

The Babadook is highly rated. I didn’t think it was that scary. Obviously The Shining and Doctor Sleep fall into that category as well. Krampus maybe? And Trick R Treat as well

Pontypool is wonderful. 

I mean Black Christmas was mentioned a page ago which is absolutely a slasher film buy also some of the best psychological suspense you will ever see.
