Where does fantasy and horror converge?

Something I often think about is where does fantasy cross into horror or vice versa, I’m yet to reach a conclusion. There are some very dark fantasy productions that could scare the bejesus out of you so how they are classified, I’ll leave to you.

Take Creepshow, the Shudder original series for instance, based on the 1982 horror comedy classic, is still the most fun you’ll ever have being scared. A comic book comes to life in a series of vignettes, exploring terrors ranging from murder, creatures, monsters, and delusions to the supernatural and unexplainable. You never know what will be on the next page…horror or fantasy or both?

In case you don’t know Shudder is another premium service available through Amazon Prime at £5.99 a month or less if you subscribe for 12 months. 

Is Shudder worth the subscription?

If you are a fan of horror/dark fantasy movies, the answer to that question is, undoubtedly, “Yes.” Not only does Shudder have tons of classic and more recent horror movies to watch, it’s also the home to more and more exclusive films and TV shows. If you want to keep up with the best in the horror movie genre, this could be for you. It has new independent films every month from the US and from international filmmakers as well.

Horror fans will find loads of great horror and horror-related movies and TV shows to stream on Shudder. They include classics like Heathers, Hellraiser, and Phantasm. You can also check out more obscure older films like Dead Heat, Chopping Mall, and Sleepaway Camp. Finally, there are some great recent horror moves on the service that you might want to check out, like Found Footage 3D, Pod, and Train to Busan

And of course Creepshow for which they have released the trailer for season three of the record-breaking anthology series, executive produced by showrunner Greg Nicotero (The Walking Dead), which premieres Thursday, September 23.
