My Roku TV Guide


This month's theme:

Surprise!

I've decided to kick off the new year with something a little different... I have no idea what you're watching! I've not seen any of the films in this month's selection and have no idea what is in store for you.


Happy New Year and Enjoy! XO

Some quick notes about the Horror Habit Roku Channel:
  • It's free! All content is streamed directly from the public Internet Archive site. 
  • Content changes monthly (on the 1st of every month) and movies will play continuously once you open the channel.
  • Should you leave during a show (so long as it's in the same month), it will pause the film for your return. 
  • If you want to skip a film, simply click on the Forward button. 
  • If the movies here have hyperlinks - follow them! They will lead you to the Horror Habit reviews of the films. 
  • I'm sorry to say that at this time my channel is currently only available in the U.S. When that changes you'll be the first to know! However, other movies available directly on this blog should be available to stream, just check out the Watch It Now links.
  • Last but not least, movies are playing in this order:
#1: Curse of the Swamp Creature (1966)
Deep in the rural swamps of Texas the mad Dr. Simond Trent is conducting experiments on the local swamp people in an attempt to discover the secret of evolution. When a party of oil surveyors comes upon his isolated laboratory he decides to take the final step and turn one of them into a grotesque amphibious creature.

  1. This is pretty cool. Thank you!!! Do you take requests for movies or anything? How do you decide what movies to choose each month? --D.B.

    1. Thanks D.B! I am absolutely open to requests! And so far my movie picks have been based on odd, original, and unique movies that I simply don't see out in the world enough. December's picks are primarily focused on all of the above as well as the winter season. At this present time my picks are also based on server space and legal resources, but my goal is to provide a wider variety of horror. In all, as I type, this is the 3rd week the Horror Habit Roku channel has been open and I am very much looking forward to see where it will go. Input, suggestions - all of it is greatly appreciated. Thank you again, D.B., and thanks again for visiting this channel and blog!

    2. You're doing a great job!! I'm currently watching Silent Night, Bloody Night (again). One movie I've been trying to find around is The Fear (1995). My sister and I watched it when we were younger and it scared the heck out of us. I was probably 6 or 7 when we watched it and I have no idea what it was about now. I would like to watch it again sometime with her though. Once again thank you for this channel.

    3. Thank you D.B.! And what a blast from the past - I've not yet seen the film but seeing that cover image again brought back some very fond video store memories. As soon as I can locate and stream it, I certainly will. Thank you, and I'm so glad you are enjoying the channel! :)

  2. I just finished watching The Woman Despiser in your Completely Out of Left Field collection. Thank you for introducing me to this movie! It was very good and I'm sure I would not have had the pleasure of seeing it anywhere else. Do you know where I might be able to obtain a copy?

    1. Thank you Mayura! It's my understanding that a small production company from Greece (Onar Films) released a limited amount of DVDs recently, but I'm not sure how many are available now or how exactly to order them. The version on my Roku channel can be obtained through the non-profit library Internet Archive: https://archive.org/details/KadinDusmaniEngSubs

  5. I watch constantly.
    Love this lineup
    I think what's on now is a German silent movie, live the coloring, seems to show up better than b/w
    I recommend this channel to roku people I know.
    Hopefully they watch.
    What I love is being able to leave it on while I'm busy and know that if I miss a show it will come back on.
    Turning of the shrew just came on, I was to watch about the first 15 min. or so, now I can finishing watching it.
    Again thank you for what you do
