List Rules Vote up Shudder's best gorey flicks.

You've finished watching your Halloween horror list (again), and now your horrible heart is pining away for its next creepy fix of scary movies. What do you do? Thankfully, there's a fairly new streaming service in town, and it's all horror, all year.

Shudder is a horror-only online streaming channel which offers classic horror films, a few hard-to-find-movies, and exclusive Shudder content. It has something for every type of horror movie junkie, from slashers to hillbilly monsters to Korean zombies. The beta version of Shudder only debuted in 2015, but already the service has welcomed a respectable following by responding to a needed niche in the family of streaming channels. You might even say Shudder is its own "little online shop of horrors" (cue zombie groans): visit Shudder's website to sign up for a subscription or subscribe through your Amazon Prime account. Either way, you'll have access to more than 500 horror flicks just waiting to scare you silly through Halloween month and the rest of the year.

Having limitless horror movie options might seem terrifying, but here's a list of some of Shudder's choicest offerings to help you fight the perfect flick for a frightfully good evening...even in December.
