I am back with a new list of the best horror films that you can currently stream on Shudder. Part 2 coming soon.
A new list of the best horror films to stream on Shudder. Please note – some titles may vary as I am Shudder UK/Ireland. Most are Shudder original though so you should be fine. Let’s get to it.
WHEN EVIL LURKS
When Evil lurks has earned its title as my favourite horror movie of the year. A demonic infection is plaguing the rural Argentinian countryside infecting the villagers one by one until the ultimate evil is born into the world.
Rugna delivers a unique possession story and gives absolute zero fucks about your feelings. A nail-bitingly tense superb viewing experience.
The first film that brought When Evil Lurks director and writer to my attention. It couldn’t be any more different than When Evil Lurks but I mean that in the best way possible. Both movies are masterclasses in their sub-genre
A group of paranormal investigators are called to a neighbourhood in Buenos Aries where strange paranormal occurrences are happening.
SPEAK NO EVIL
This one caused quite a bit of controversy when it was released. Personally, I thought it was one of the best Human Horrors we got treated to in a long time. I can understand people disliking the actions of some of the main characters but that’s the main reason I found the film so effective.
A family go to spend a weekend with some people they met on holiday. Knowing very little about who they are, it ain’t long before they regret their decision.
A remake may have already been shot. I’m guessing the writer’s strike had something to do with it being delayed a bit. There’s a lot of untapped material in the original to make the remake its own film while exploring the killers’ murdering antics. The remake will star Scott McNairy and James McAvoy
Thirst is my favourite vampire movie of all time and I don’t say that lightly. From legendary South Korean director Park Chan-wook (Old Boy) and starring the phenomenal Song Kang-ho (A Taxi Driver, Parasite, The Drug King).
An unusual tale of vampirism that takes place when a priest gets infected with bad blood after receiving a transfusion to try and help a plagued village. His Thirst for blood becomes uncontrollable and it’s only a matter of time before he goes against everything he believes and begins to kill people.
TIGERS ARE NOT AFRAID
Tigers Are Not Afraid is a Mexican production written and directed by Issa López. it follows a group of street kids trying to survive the constant violence from the cartels as well as the monsters and ghosts born from the death and destruction of the cartels.
A wonderfully made movie that really hits hard. As well as a creative and unique horror, Tigers Are Not Afraid doubles up as a tragic, yet beautiful drama highlighting the hardship and struggles of street kids in Mexico.
Do you like zombies? Do you like boobs? if so, then Yummy is the movie for you. This was one hell of a fun ride and pure unexpected greatness and often hilarious.
A zombie apocalypse begins when a group of people go to a plastic surgery/breast implant hospital for some boob jobs…and some boob reductions. This was super gory in parts and a great homage to the zombie greats.
Nicolas Cage & Andrea Riseborough star in Panos Cosmatos‘ Mandy. When his wife, Mandy is attacked by a cult, Red (Cage) goes on a RamCage to bring the cult down in a hail of hellish hallucinatory madness.
Any movie that opens up with King Crimson playing in the OST, you know you’re in for a good time.
That’s it for Part 1 of my best horror movie to stream on Shudder. Check back soon for part 2. As always, thanks for reading
