A Horror-Only Streaming Service Has Landed In Australia
People who are obsessed with horror films and TV series might have found it difficult to find what they're craving on traditional streaming services.
Sure, the likes of Netflix, Hulu, Stan and others have a massive selection of stuff to scare you senseless, but if you're a niche horror enthusiast then there might be a way forward.
Shudder has just launched in Australia and it's a horror-only streaming service.
It was announced that the streaming service was coming Down Under two years ago, however there were a few hiccups that led to it being delayed. But, it's finally here and scareoholics can now soak up everything it has to offer.
Not only does Shudder have original titles to peruse, but also loads of third-party content that every horror-lover will enjoy. You can watch modern slasher flicks like The Guest and It Follows, as well as classics such as Halloween 4 and 5, Maniac Cop and Hellraiser.
The content will be uniquely Australian, which can be a good and bad thing, depending on the way you look at it.

Shudder's general manager Craig Engler says the Australian library won't be the same as the one in America or the UK due to licensing issues.
He added: "This is because films are licensed by territory, so a film we may be able to get in the US may not be available in the UK or Australia. We try to have parity whenever we can but it's tough.
"On the plus side, Australians will get some movies that the US, CA and UK don't get."
You can have a free squiz at the streaming service for seven days if it tickles your fancy. After that, you can either pay month-by-month at $6.99, which will be $83.88 for the year, or you can fork out for a yearly membership, which will only set you back $69.99.
It'll be tough working out whether that will be enough money to justify adding to your already bulging streaming services or whether one needs to go to make way for Shudder. Shudder already works for Apple TV, Fire TV, Xbox, and Chromecast, meaning it won't take more than a download to get it firing on all cylinders on your TV.
