For obscure films and classic TV
Criterion Channel offers an $11-a-month service that grants access to more than 1,000 classic and contemporary movies, including a lot of international and art-house titles. “You can really get lost in here.”
Tubi takes viewers back to the ’80s, when local channels brimmed with sci-fi, martial arts, horror, and heavily edited erotic thrillers that were meant to compete with cable TV’s programming. “For a mix of Oscar winners and Jean-Claude Van Damme without spending a dime, search no more.”
Shudder was once devoted to horror classics, but the $4.75-a-month streaming service owned by AMC Networks has branched out into thrillers and current horror flicks.
Mubi is an “oddly curated” platform that streams only 30 little-known titles at a time, swapping in one new movie each day. Customers can either subscribe for $11 a month or rent movies à la carte.
