    So I've been on Shudder about a month now and so far, so good. A good varied selection from newer stuff like Lake Mungo to titles like Slaughter Hotel and Burial Ground, which I watched this weekend. I've only watched on Apple TV so can only speak for that but the streaming quality has been excellent.

    The real question will be after my year is up will they have added enough new titles to make it worth renewing. We'll see but so far it's a thumbs up for me.

    I've been a member for about a year and a half. I get an email each week with their new stuff. Content has not been an issue at all. I use a Roku and my IPad and both have been excellent quality.

    Last year, a few of Shudder's most mediocre movies made it to blu-ray: Found Footage 3D, Dead Shack, Don't Grow Up. I wasn't expecting more since they lead with some of their weaker titles.

    It looks like several more will be making their way to physical media from October - December:

    October 8th:
    Ruin Me DVD
    Gwen Blu-ray or DVD
    Last Ones Out DVD

    October 15th:
    The Noonday Witch Blu-ray

    November 12th:
    Small Town Killers Blu-ray

    December 3rd:
    Christmas Presence DVD
    Boar DVD

    I have no idea how they chose which ones are getting blu-rays, but go figure, the only one I want to own is DVD only (Ruin Me). How disappointing and random. I can't imagine the movies they did select for blu-ray flying off the shelves.

    Still no Lake Bodom or Downrange, but this gives me hope. Of course, I guarantee those will be DVD only as well.

    Where's "Terrified" ?!?! Creepiest movie I've seen in years. Really hoping that comes to disc.

    I don't know if we have a dedicated Shudder thread, but I watched "Belzebuth" over the weekend. Yeah, skip it...

    ^ I watched Tigers Are Not Afraid on Shudder over the weekend and thought it was pretty great! It reminded me a lot of The Devil's Backbone.

    It might help to not approach it as a horror movie though. There is definitely a supernatural element, but it's not really the primary focus of the movie.

    It's also incredibly short, I think the credits were rolling before the 80 minute mark.

    Tigers is on my list. It got a one-off theatrical screening at the local micro-cinema here.

    Caught Tigers at a film fest last year and it is nothing short of amazing, powerful, and absolutely shattering. Was my second favourite film from last year. Highly, highly recommended!
