Shudder's originals are surprisingly good
Final Verdict

Shudder’s original shows, movies and podcasts are this streaming service’s main attraction. Fans of the genre will enjoy perusing Shudder’s sizable collection of little-known horror indie flicks, underappreciated gems of the past and ”so bad they’re good” B-movies.
