Now that summer‘s over, it’s time to get down to business.

Every year, I get excited for October because that’s when almost every network broadcasts a number of horror films. However, because their selections have become repetitive and films are edited to satisfy their advertisers to be shown in a specific amount of time, I’ve decided to use streaming services such as Shudder and Tubi to watch horror (and horror-related) films in their full glory.

Since cutting the cord a few years ago, I’ve spent most of my time watching (horror) films and shows on Shudder, Tubi (a free service with very few ads), Netflix, and Amazon. Each has their own unique selection, but Shudder is a must-have for all horror fans!
