With October now here, those looking to save on the cost of Shudder might be hoping for a Halloween sale or discount. While Shudder hasn’t announced one yet, it is possible to secure an extended 30-day free trial right now, covering you through Halloween.


Shudder is one of the more popular horror and thriller-themed streaming services around and Halloween is understandably a popular time for consumers to give the service a try. Shudder also tends to run a sale around this time of the year. Last Halloween, for example, Shudder was offering 31% of its annual plan, bringing the cost of a full year down to under $40.

While Shudder hasn’t announced a similar deal or promotion for Halloween 2023 yet, it is possible to get a 30-day free trial by signing up to Shudder and using either the HILLBILLY, HORRORHOUND or CAMPFIRE promo codes.


Having 30 days before making the first payment is a great option, and especially when considering the standard Shudder free trial only lasts 7 days. It is also now long enough to ensure you can binge all the horror you can handle on Halloween night. For those wanting to avoid paying for a subscription, they will need to remember to cancel before the extended free trial comes to an end.

For those considering remaining subscribed, the price of a Shudder subscription recently increased to $6.99 a month. Shudder also offers an annual plan for $71.88, which works out to be $5.99 a month on average.

All of the 30-day promo codes listed above can be used regardless of whether signing up to Shudder on a monthly or annual basis.


Some of the new and notable additions to Shudder in October include V/H/S/85 (10/6), The Last Drive In: Halloween 1978 (live on Shudder TV on 10/10), season 4 of Creepshow (10/13), The Puppetman (10/13), Night of the Hunted (10/20), Joe Bob’s Helloween (live on Shudder TV on 10/20), When Evil Lurks (10/27), Hell House LLC Origins: The Carmichael Manor (10/30), and season 5 of The Boulet Brothers’ Dragula (10/31).

John's preferred live TV streaming service right now is YouTube TV although he does tend to switch live TV services multiple times each year to keep up to date with their changes. Outside of live TV, John also actively streams HBO Max (for the shows), Peacock (for Premier League), and Paramount Plus (for Champion's League). However, John is also currently subscribed to Apple TV+, Discovery+, Hulu, Starz, Showtime, and Shudder.
