So, you’ve devoured what meager horror content there is to be found on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu and the like, yet you still crave more? Well maybe it’s time to invest in that Roku player you’ve been eyeing. The device offers literally dozens of channels geared towards the ghostly and the gruesome, more than enough to keep the cable cord cutting horror connoisseur’s viewing platter full for the foreseeable future. They’re all worth sampling, but the following eight Roku channels represent our favorites for the moment.
By now, Shudder is probably familiar to most horror fans, but this list would be entirely incomplete without it. Shudder’s library of horror films and TV series now number in the hundreds with a fair number of titles being exclusive to the service. What makes the channel special, however, isn’t simply its quantity, but its quality. As noted on their website, Shudder’s content is curated by a panel of “horror aficionados with a deep love and respect for the many peculiar varieties and genres of horror” and it shows. In short, your queue won’t be cluttered with the nearly unwatchable dreck that Netflix users have come to expect, but instead will be populated with classic Hammer horrors, offbeat 80s oddities, and new films fresh off the festival circuit such as We Are The Flesh and Sweet, Sweet Lonely Girl.
