Screambox subscription, free trail review 2022

Paushali Banerjee | Streaming Expert

I rate Screambox a 6.2 on 10. Screambox is dedicated solely to horror films. However, like its competitor, it also provides ad-free and unedited material. 

 

When it comes to exclusive material, though, it falls short. Shudder delivers more than twice as much exclusive content as Screambox. Screambox is wrong because the tagline "horror you won't find anyplace else" is false. Instead, it's intended to give the impression that Screambox has deep cuts and uncommon treasures. While the films are obscure, just a few are worth watching. 

 

Only 11 films have an IMDb.com rating of 5.0 or higher (out of 10.0) and a ReelGood.com rating of 50 or higher (out of 100). In fact, the Screambox app library is littered with egregiously terrible horror movies, the kind you watch only out of boredom, curiosity, or search fatigue, and then rage-quit before the credits roll.

 

Screambox compensates for this by allowing you to go in and peruse anything they have without creating an account. As a result, you can form an opinion by reading descriptions and viewing trailers (when available).Screambox app also has several free exclusives available to watch.

Get Started With Screambox Now!

Screambox, like Shudder, Full Moon Features, and Monsters and Nightmares, is a horror streaming TV service. Screambox is dedicated to "horror you won't find anywhere else" to set itself apart from its competitors. It's a horror-focused platform built by fans that provides a terrifyingly good deal for genre enthusiasts.   The Screambox app service includes an on-demand collection of horror films that can be seen without advertisements on various devices. Although there aren't any well-known titles among its selections, and the original programming options are limited, ardent horror enthusiasts may find the films on the site entertaining.

Screambox cost

  • Screambox price is $4.99 per month, but you can save money by signing up for an annual plan for $35.88. 
  • It can be downloaded on mobile platforms (iOS and Android) as a mobile app.
  • It may also be accessed on media streaming devices (Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, and Roku). 
  • It can also be viewed in a web browser. Screambox currently does not have a gaming console app.
  • Screambox free trial lasts seven days.

What features does Screambox offer?

User experience:

 
  • Overall, the Screambox app has a relatively barebones user interface. Furthermore, the design choices are a little perplexing. 
  • Whether you're a member or not, clicking the Screambox logo leads you to a promotional page that tries to sell you on the service. 
  • Browse appears to exist only so that search is not the only option on the navigation bar. 
  • In addition, despite the option to add titles to your list, there is no distinct button area for My List. Instead, you only have access to your list through the single browse page.
  • Similarly, when you click on a title to see its description, the information offered is sparse.

The content you get access to:

 

  • The Screambox app appears to have forced Shudder's content on the homepage to make it appear as if it contains more TV content than it actually has, resulting in a cluttered, chaotic appearance. 
  • Screambox, on the other hand, has five major categories, each with its content lists. 
  • When you do get to one of these content lists, it's equally stripped-down, with only a tiny list description and the names. 
  • Of course, there are apparent season staples like Halloween from 1978, Trick or Treat from 2009, and Hocus Pocus from 1993.

 

Streaming experience:

  • The majority of the video I viewed was in 1080p, with a few 720p flicks thrown in for good measure. 
  • Screambox plans to release 4K content soon. Screambox app titles loaded swiftly during our testing.
  • You'll find the typical playback, volume, and progress bar options on the presently playing screen. 
  • Although there are no fast forward or rewind controls, it is simple to move forward or backward to search for what you want to watch (or to skip over some of the gore). 
  • The audio quality was clean and strong, which is crucial for delivering jump scares in the horror genre.

What does it lack?

Parental controls:

 
  • The content ratings for most of Screambox's movies are designed to exclude younger audiences. However, there are no parental control measures.

 

DVR Storage:

 

  • There is no access to DVR Storage on the Screambox app or the web.

Conclusion

Screambox app is a low-cost service that provides access to new and older films on a no-frills platform. Although it may not be enough streaming luxury for many viewers, Screambox is a service worth considering if you are a dedicated horror fan weary of mainstream films.   Another way to think about the platform's offering is to provide a modest but respectable collection of horror films from hundreds of years ago, all without commercials, for a low price.
