Watching is The New York Times’s film and TV streaming recommendation website. Sign up for our three-times weekly newsletter here.

As the old saying goes, ’tis the season for screamin’. But what if you like your scares year-round? Lucky for you, we’re in an age of niche streaming services like Shudder, which specializes in suspense, thrillers and horror movies and TV shows.

Shudder, from AMC Networks, provides movies that range from gruesome to campy, from silent to chain-saw loud, from low budget to no budget. There’s also a healthy collection of foreign horror films and TV, like the cruel and torturous “Audition” from Japan, the terrifying Spanish zombie movie “[Rec],” the Japanese series “Penance” and the Swedish series “Jordskott.” If you’re daunted by the sheer number of titles, then look into Shudder’s easy-to-browse collections, like their films about the apocalypse or women-led horror movies. That should also help you weed out some of the more lurid and trashy movies on Shudder, which may not be of interest.

Shudder subscriptions are available in the United States for $4.99 a month or $47.88 a year, and in Canada, Britain and Ireland at locally adjusted prices.
