Must-Watch Horror Movies Streaming On Shudder Right Now

  • Published: 08 October 2019
  • With a lineup ranging from timeless genre staples like Halloween to modern classics that include Mandy and The Wailing, it's not exactly a challenge to find a winner among Shudder's unhinged offerings. The bigger problem is knowing where to start.

    Given the stigma that's generally accompanied the vampire genre since a certain sparkle-skinned seed of night gained pop culture infamy, we'll go ahead and give you a free pass for having likely missed Michael O'Shea's relentlessly bleak The Transfiguration.

    O'Shea's genre-redefining debut follows a desperately lonely young New Yorker with a seriously misguided affection for vampire fiction. Gritty, ponderous, and altogether mystifying, The Transfiguration is at once a daring, wildly insightful examination of inner city alienation, a torturous exploration of post traumatic stress, and an obsessive exploration of a fantasy life taken far past the edge of sanity.

    For the record, The Transfiguration is also a gruesome, bloody exploration of urban decay that's wholly unafraid to dwell in scorched shadows and filthy back alleys. Pitch-perfect performances from newcomer Eric Ruffin and up-and-comer Chloë Levine help ground this moody, profoundly unsettling tale in a heightened state of reality that often feels a little too real for comfort.

    There are horror movies that indulge in the fleeting pleasures of jump scares and blood lust, and then there are movies that seek to expose you to things that will unnerve you in ways you didn't think possible — the sorts of things that stay burned into your brain for months and years after you've seen them. Hagazussa is 110% of the latter school. If you've yet to experience Lukas Feigelfeld's gothic folk nightmare about an isolated woman struggling to maintain her sanity and raise her infant daughter in the wilds of 15th Century Europe, now's the time to dive in. Keep watching the video to see the must-watch horror movies streaming on Shudder right now!

                The love witch is amazing but the point of this movie is for you to decide whether she has powers or not...

                              Also streaming on Shudder right now, I recommend “One Cut Of The Dead”!

                                @lawofgravity1979 Interesting, even before I knew what was going on it was still funny in a way to me, like classic schlock. It turned out brilliant subversion at end though!

                                @John Croucher I thought the same thing too! I was like "what the hell is going on exactly?" And like you said, it all slowly starts to make sense. An incredibly clever movie!

                                Yes! If anyone is watching it and say “why am I watching this” persist! The first 20mins is a hard watch but after that it all comes together and makes it worthwhile and an amazing movie.

                              I saw Darling and was one of the most boring so called horror films I’ve seen. Have to disagree with looper on this one.

                                Shudder is my favorite streaming channel. It's like netflix for horror movies. They have independent shorts, foriegn horror flicks and some rare hard to find classics. One year, they even showed the uncut version of "Devils" (1972)

                                          The Love Witch is a fun little film. You get lost in the cinematography and wardrobe, and forget it's set in the present. Those smartphones got me every time. LoL!!!

                                                @MrUseless247 yeah I feel ya man Netflix been kinda tripping lately they mostly putting out there own stuff than other big movies and shows but yeah on shudder I saw some very very gory shit that is banned from other streaming sites and banned from cable TV like disgusting shit like Contamination, Society, Cannibal Holocaust, and Cannibal Ferox think I would of lost my appetite after watching those horror films lol

                                                @T.R.U. Louisianimal the way Netflix has been the last several months, I might substitute it with something else in the near future. There's so many streaming services, now.

                                                @MrUseless247 there's a lot of stuff on shudder that won't ever be on Netflix and Hulu tho lots of great horror old and new plus the shudder made exclusives are really damn good plus it's only 5 bucks a month

                                                Though, I love horror, I ain't getting shudder. Netflix and Hulu is enough for now, until I decide to switch things up. The rest of the content I'm "missing," I'm stealing.
