    I recently signed up for SHUDDER. Essentially the Netflix for Horror Films.

    For anyone who hasn't, you can get a free week.

    For people who are signed-up, what are your thoughts? Any film recommendations?

    I love it! Mostly because they have a pretty big variety of Japanese horror, which can be hard to find sometimes. I've had it for about a month and a half now and couldn't be happier. I got it because I thought that Netflix was giving me some pretty crappy titles to work with, so I looked at Shudder's collection and the decision to buy was pretty easy.

    My only dislike is that they don't have an app for Smart-TVs (like Apple TV or Amazon Fire) yet, so I have to watch on a computer for now.

    But I agree whole-heartedly - it's a bargain and if you love horror you should at least try the free trial.

    Yeah! I agree. Some obscure titles that can be hard to come by, for sure. I also really enjoyed the Bonus Features they added for 31, and hope they keep adding more special features with the new films they add.

    I wish they had a smart tv app, too. I was using a 1st generation Apple TV, and wasn`t able to access Shudder through it. Apparently with newer Apple TVs you are able to download Shudder through it. But I am just using an HDMI from my laptop to my TV for now.

    Other than that, loving it.

    You should recommend a movie for me to watch!

    Oh cool, I didn't realize they had extra stuff for 31! I haven't seen it yet, so maybe I'll check it out

    For recommendations, I'd probably say "I Am A Ghost" and "We Go On." Both are ghost movies (of course). If the first were a book, it'd be a page-turner; it had me wondering what was going to happen next and what the underlying story was. The second had likeable characters that I enjoyed watching on their journey to find out if we "exist" after death. I'm also going to throw "Reincarnation" in there (it's Japanese). Pretty creepy vibes throughout and a bit of a twist at the end.

    Lately I've been watching slower, indie movies. Just a nice change of pace from the normal high-paced stuff and slashers. Generally, though, I'm up for anything! Any recommendations you wanna give?

    Yeah! Unless it is just on the Canadian version. But even if you don`t like the movie, see the process of it being made is still pretty neat.

    I will add those to my list! Thanks a lot.

    There was a Canadian indie movie I watched last week, called Bloody Knuckles. It is ridiculous...but fun.

    The Strangers is on there and if you haven`t seen it, you must! Its a slower burn, and has that indie feel to it.

    The Shrine is also another neat movie. Not a huge budget, but neat premise.

    Let me know if you want more suggestions. Thanks!!!
