We live in a world of streaming services. Everywhere you look there’s another company looking to get some of your money every month.

If you’re a horror junkie, Shudder is the perfect streaming service for you. It has all kinds of classic and exclusive horror movies and series that are tailor-made for you.

Whether you like psychological horror designed to creep into your mind and make you feel uncomfortable or you prefer a bloody slasher film filled with blood and guts, there’s an exclusive or original on Shudder for you.

7. 31

31 is far from Rob Zombie’s best movie. It’s far from the best horror movie out there in general. But with all that said, it’s much better than people make it out to be, and it’s totally worth checking out if you have a Shudder subscription. The premise of being forced to survive while a gang of psychopathic clowns chases you with the intention of torturing and murdering you is twisted enough to tickle the fancy of any die-hard horror junkie!

6. The Witch In The Window

This movie provides an interesting twist on a tried and true horror movie formula—a family moves into an old house that’s haunted by a vengeful spirit who makes their lives miserable. What makes this one different, though, is that evil spirit becomes stronger as the house is repaired. So the “improvements” Simon (the homeowner) makes could actually be he and his son’s downfall.

5. Therapy

Normally, I’m not a big fan of found footage films. I’m also not a big fan of foreign movies. However, there’s something about Therapy that I really enjoyed. The movie centers around the two police officers, Jane and Simon, as they uncover what happened to a group of tourists. They uncover footage that seems tame enough, but as the film progresses, things escalate, and it ends up being a pretty dark movie.

4. Satan’s Slaves

This is actually an Indonesian film written and directed by Joko Anwar. It’s one of those movies that no one talks about enough, because it’s really quite fantastic. It tells the story of a mother who passes away to a strange illness. Once she’s gone, her family’s problems are just beginning, as evil entities start to terrorize and possess the family. If you like demon horror, this is the film for you.

3. Lake Bodom

I love slashers and I’m not afraid to admit it. But the one thing I love more than a straight-up slasher flick is one that manages to subvert your expectations and do something different. That’s exactly what Lake Bodom manages to execute to perfection. You think you have the film, which centers around a group of teens camping out Finland’s Lake Bodom, all figured out, and then it goes somewhere completely different. To put it simply, this is a must-watch for all horror fans.

2. Prevenge

Here we have another straight-ahead slasher film. Well, actually it’s a pretty standard dark British comedy. Okay, so Prevenge actually is not cut and dry at all. This movie is as messed up and violent as it is hilarious. Our killer is actually being controlled by her unborn child, which is a premise that’s both creative and twisted.

1. Mayhem

This film stars Steven Yeun, who you may recognize as Glenn from AMC’s The Walking Dead (Shudder is actually owned by AMC as well). He plays a character named Derek Cho who is wrongly fired from his job. All of his former colleagues have come down with a virus that makes them act on wildest impulses, and he, along with a former client (played by Samara Weaving), must fight their way to the executives to exact revenge. Mayhem is absolutely insane, and it never lets up on violent entertainment.
