What’s better than an Amazon Prime Video subscription? An Amazon Prime Video subscription paired with your all-time favorite horror streaming service: Shudder.

In this guide, we’ll walk you through how you can watch all your favorite ghosts, goblins, and gore content straight from Prime Video.

How can I watch Shudder on Amazon Prime Video?

Amazon Prime Video has a feature that allows you to subscribe to and access Shudder content through the Prime Video platform in order to watch content from both services in the same place. This makes for an upgraded viewing experience, especially if you crave a good scare every so often.

To see Shudder’s library of TV shows and movies directly in your Prime Video library, all you need to do is subscribe to Shudder through Prime Video at a small additional monthly cost. While you’re not getting any discount on Shudder by subscribing through Prime Video, you do get all your content in the same place, which makes it much easier to scroll through all your watching options at once.

What is there to watch on Shudder?

Shudder is the go-to streaming service for horror, thrillers, zombies, and all things creepy. While Amazon Prime Video has its fair share of spine-chilling content, nothing compares to Shudder.

With a growing selection of Shudder originals like Creepshow, The Mortuary Collection, and Revenge, and an on-demand library of thousands of movies and TV shows, you’ll never run out of things to watch. Another great thing about Shudder is they are constantly coming out with new releases. You’ll find old and modern classics alike, from the legendary Halloween slasher franchise to the elevated-horror film The Babadook, and everything in between.

Is it worth getting Shudder with my Prime Video subscription?

If you crave a good horror or horror-related movie or TV show more than just once in a blue moon, the monthly subscription would likely be money well spent. Why go to the movies when you can just dim the lights, grab a blanket, and send popcorn flying across the room during jump scares… all from the comfort of your own home?

That said, the best way to find out if Shudder is worth it for you is to try it first for yourself. Luckily, Shudder offers a free trial, so you can see if it’s worth the money before committing.

Do Shudder and Amazon Prime Video offer free trials?

Yes. Amazon Prime Video and Shudder both offer free trials. Amazon Prime Video offers a 30-day free trial and Shudder offers a 7-day free trial. Try them together and see if it’s a match made in heaven for you.

Do other streaming services offer this feature?

Certainly! If you're looking for more streaming options, you can expand your content library by adding special access to platforms like Paramount+ and Starz as add-ons to your Amazon Prime Video account. This allows you to enjoy a wide range of shows, movies, and exclusive content - all in one convenient place.
