I love horror movies! Whether rewatching a classic like "Halloween" for the millionth time, laughing out loud at the hilarity of "Tucker and Dale Versus Evil" or even squirming at the so-bad-it's-good "Thirteen Ghosts", barely a week goes by when I don't peruse my collection and pop in one DVD or another. I also regularly troll Netflix, but most of the time, what I find there is either already in my collection or something I wouldn't even touch at a Redbox. Sadly, ever since the demise of FEARnet, there really hasn't been anything I've been able to find that helps me indulge in this guilty pleasure.
Enter Screambox, a new streaming service that has pretty much everything I've ever been looking for in a horror movie service. Classics? Check. Creepy/gross stuff I can only watch once? Of course. Weird stuff I would never have heard of otherwise? Yup! I've only just started checking it out, and I'm already amazed at all the really fun content I've been able to find just in the last few days.
What's really great about these guys is that they make it easy to find your horror niche and then dig in deeper to discover new movies that are right up your alley. Say you like supernatural horror films, well you can pick that as your main category only to have it broken down into smaller sub genres like Ghosts, Demons or Witches, which makes it incredibly easy to find the exact kind of movie you're looking for. Granted, they're still building their database, so if you're hoping to find every horror movie ever made, you're not going to get that right away, but they've been adding content non stop ever since I checked it out, and they told me they have even more coming every week!
Possession AND Demons? Well, if you insist.
Their service is still pretty new, so it's not quite available on every platform yet. I've been streaming stuff to my TV via my Chromecast, but if you have a Roku or an Android phone or tablet, you can download their app on there instead. Their goal is to have it on Playstation, Xbox 360 and Samsung Smart TVs shortly, which will make it all the easier to get content to your TV.
Hopefully, I've piqued your curiosity at this point, so if you want to try them out, follow this link or click on the banner at the bottom of the page to get a free trial to check it out for yourself. If you end up liking it as much as I do, it's only $3.99 a month after that, which is an absolute steal compared to Netflix, Hulu and the like.
Also, we will be handing out some free six month and one year subscriptions over the next week, but they're gonna go fast, so keep an eye on BSR for a chance to win one!
