• video streaming services for horror fans-netflix proxy

    When one wants instant gratification, there’s nothing as efficient as video streaming services. It’s a very comfortable, laid-back way of satisfying our horror wishes. Some of them may lack a bit in the horror choices they offer, but the instantaneous quality of delivery makes them a must-have tool in the arsenal of a horror lover. Obviously, not every streamer is Shudder and because of that, the general ones are of limited interest to horror fans. But the choice in the ones that offer a variety of genres keeps on growing so they deserve to be known too.

    I trust this site will help you in your fear venture in a down-to-earth way, or if nothing else that it will entertain and engage you.

    Focus only on the best horror movies circulating on video streaming services.

    I curate the items in this category to cater to any horror fan that has an active passion for or exhibits major enthusiasm in exploring the horror genre through video streaming services

    List of the Most Popular Video Streaming Services

    * Hulu
    * Prime Video
    * Netflix
    * Crunchyroll
    * Funimation
    * HBO Max
    * Apple TV+

    Now, while some streamers have user interfaces that could be improved, that is unimportant compared to the value they give.

    Let’s focus for a moment on Netflix as an example of what I’m saying. Unless you know what to watch, to find something worth watching takes time, clicks, and patience.

    If you know how an interface could be improved and if you struggle to find a good movie to watch you know what I mean.

    One thing is using Netflix on a TV. I guess the motive is to have only one minimalistic interface that is the same for all devices. Still, it’s an imposition that doesn’t give power to the user.

    When accessed from a computer the site feels like an application, even when accessing it with a desktop computer. The subtle, minimalist interface wastes the opportunity to make, at least the desktop version of the website, to have more functionalities and be of more value to the user.

    I think I see why it is not this way. Because they think it’s more valuable that way, to have a single version for all devices that achieves its objective without frills and thus without additional costs involved. That kind of exempts them from having to have written copy on the site other than the minimum necessary of text.

    What’s more, no need to create taxonomy trees, advanced search features, or even informational pages where they tell exactly what they’re going to release and when, and what are they going to cancel.

    We are 8711

    8711 is Netflix’s code for horror. You may argue that there’s a way of refining searches on Netflix, using the so-called genre “secret codes”.

    You access Netflix’s genre pages by inputting this URL in your browser:

    www.netflix.com/browse/genre/8711

    Where you enter the specific code, instead of 8711 the chief category, after the last forward slash. Even if it works, and it’s useful, you can’t deny that it is inelegant for the platform and a little hassle for the user.

    These are the codes for horror sub-genres (ᔥJames Titcomb)

    I’m Here to Help

    I think that due to the lack of detailed information about the streamers’ catalogs, on the sites themselves, a resource where one can be informed about this was needed.

    Curating horror things from video streaming services may sound counter-intuitive. One can think that there’s no point in curating things that due to licensing deals aren’t permanent. Still, licensed movies endure beyond the circulating time on platforms that offer them.

    There are many ways on the internet to be informed of the releases and pullouts from video streamers, but there isn’t one website, YouTube channel, or similar that is dedicated exclusively to horror on streaming services that I could find.

    Fortnightly, I’ll publish an article curating both what horrors are coming or came to the video streamers and which are the cancellations. Hopefully with a useful amount of time in advance.

    If you use newsreaders, you can register to receive horror video streamers RSS updates as soon as I post them. Otherwise, you can register on the website and in this way automatically join the mailing list. You can even join the mailing list only, without the need to join the site.
