Shudder is currently running a promotion that lowers the cost of its annual plan to under $40, a saving of 31% compared to the usual cost of a yearly subscription. With Halloween right around the corner, this deal makes now a very good time to give Shudder a try.


The standard price of a Shudder subscription is $5.99 per month. For this monthly fee, subscribers get ad-free and unlimited access to the entire Shudder catalog. Like many other services, Shudder also offers an annual plan. The price of the yearly Shudder subscription is $56.99, which breaks down to around $4.75 per month.

However, Shudder has currently discounted the annual subscription by 31%, bringing the actual total that a new subscriber pays to $39.32. Although the main Shudder website has yet to start advertising the promotion, it can be accessed via this Shudder Halloween page. Alternatively, new customers can simply sign up through the main website and apply the HOME promo code on the payment page.


Shudder has been preparing for this year’s Halloween with a “The Home For Halloween” marketing campaign, which likely explains the HOME promo code this year. According to Shudder, Halloween 2022 will be “Shudder’s biggest-ever,” with “11 original and exclusive movies premieres” being released. Some of these have already been released in the buildup to Halloween, but others haven’t yet, including V/H/S/99, which premieres on Shudder on October 20th.

At the discounted price, new customers are saving around $17.67 compared to the usual cost of the annual plan. This also breaks down to roughly $3.27 per month, which is almost half the cost of the standard monthly subscription. While both the monthly and annual plans typically come with a seven-day free trial, this discounted subscription doesn’t. As a result, subscribers will be expected to pay the full $39.32 when signing up.

In reality, and if only wanting access to a service like Shudder for the Halloween period, then it is likely to work out much cheaper to just sign up for the standard monthly plan and then cancel the subscription after Halloween. However, if a home sees value in retaining access throughout the year to a wide library of horror and supernatural content, including plenty of Shudder Original movies, shows, and podcasts, then this is one way to significantly save on the cost of a subscription.


Considering Shudder officially started its sixty-one-day The Home For Halloween celebration on September 1, the promo code should be good up until around November 1, 2022.
