I really have to say that I dig Shudder. Although I have subscriptions to, sadly, about every streaming source out there, Shudder is pretty much always my fallback. NOW, we are getting the classic Universal Monsters as well!!!
From the press release:
Shudder, the AMC-backed thriller, suspense and horror streaming platform, continues to makes waves with its fright-filled Halloween rollout as it announces the Shudder premiere of the legendary Universal Monsters films (releasing today)!
The selection of films includes Dracula (1931), Frankenstein (1931), Bride of Frankenstein (1935), The Mummy (1932), The Invisible Man (1933) & The Wolf Man (1941). Together, they comprise some of the most influential horror films in history.
