What is Full Moon Features?

Full Moon Features (FMF) is an on-demand streaming TV service that carries mainly horror films and series, but also action, comedy, Eurocult, sci-fi, and softcore erotica films—all with extra cheese. Most of the titles are produced under the Full Moon Studios/Full Moon Pictures umbrella, but Full Moon also licenses movies from Blue Underground, Something Weird Video, and the Andy Sidaris collection.

Is Full Moon Features good?

Horror and cult film fans will love what Full Moon Features offers. Its library alone is worth the price, and the app runs smooth as butter. And the discounted annual subscription and 10 free DVDs/Blu-rays offer (worth up to $170) make it truly an excellent value.

Full Moon Features pros and cons

Pros

  • Affordable pricing
  • Large library including films from Blue Underground and the Andy Sidaris collection
  • Downloads for offline viewing
  • Free DVDs or Blu-rays with annual subscription

Cons

  • No way to search or access watchlist on Xbox One version of app
  • Limited titles available for free DVD/Blu-ray offer

Full Moon Features deals and promotions

Full Moon Features has a discounted annual subscription rate with a sweet promotion attached: new and returning annual subscribers can pick 10 free DVDs or Blu-rays—or the entire 12-movie Puppet Master Collection—from FullMoonDirect.com.

To collect on the offer, just sign up for the annual subscription, and Full Moon Features will email you a promo code for the discs in around a week. Our code arrived as promised, and our Blu-rays showed up in three days. Your mileage may vary depending on your location. Also, you won’t pay a dime for shipping (international orders must pay a $20 shipping fee).

The list of eligible discs, while ample enough, excludes many titles that are streaming on Full Moon Features. So you can’t select Andy Sidaris’s wonderfully turgid action flicks (bummer), Blue Underground’s giallo and spaghetti-splatter titles, or Something Weird Video’s Herschell Gordon Lewis gorefests. But there’s still plenty to choose from, and we’re stoked on our stack. Without the offer, it would’ve cost us $155.50 plus shipping.

When comparing horror streaming TV services, Full Moon Features ranks a close second behind Shudder due to price and catalog quality and size.

We recommend Shudder to serious horror fans who want chills and thrills. Full Moon Features, while dense with horror titles, is best for devotees of cult/midnight/awesomely bad movies of all genres. I have annual subs to both services because they’re so good, and with the annual sub discounts, I pay only $9.74 a month combined. (Note: you’ll have to subscribe to each service separately).

Full Moon Features on Prime Video

You can subscribe to Full Moon Features through Prime Video as a Prime Channel. This is cool if you want to keep all of your streaming TV services in one place. But Prime Channels don’t offer the best experience.

You can’t use the Full Moon Features app with Prime Channels. You’re stuck with Prime Video’s ugly, maddening interface, which doesn’t even show you all of Full Moon Features’ available content (same goes for any other Prime Channel).

We recommend subscribing directly through Full Moon Features so you have the best experience.

Screambox and Monsters and Nightmares are much smaller services, hence the cheaper subscriptions. Monsters and Nightmares has only 55 titles, but they’re from Magnolia Pictures and Magnet Releasing, so they’re all pretty good-to-great. Screambox has about triple the content of Monsters and Nightmares but, uh, we don’t recommend it. To learn more, read our Screambox review.

But now let’s dig into the uniquely entertaining Full Moon Features catalog.

Full Moon Features movies and shows

The Full Moon Features library draws primarily from the Full Moon Entertainment filmography, which includes horror (Full Moon Studios/Full Moon Pictures/Full Moon Productions), sci-fi and sexy sci-fi (Torchlight Entertainment), and family films (Moonbeam Entertainment).

As mentioned earlier, Full Moon Features licenses some films from Eurocult, horror, and exploitation studios like Blue Underground and Something Weird Video. FMF also features special collections like the Andy Sidaris action films, which are gleaming jewels in the Full Moon Features crown (if you like explosions, nudity, and utter nonsense).

Full Moon Features add-ons

Full Moon Features has no add-ons, but it is an add-on. As discussed earlier, you can add FMF on Amazon Prime Video via Prime Channels. It’s the same price ($6.99 a month or $59.99 a year), but remember there are pros and cons to subscribing to Full Moon Features through Prime Channels.

Full Moon Features specs and features

Streams

Full Moon Features doesn’t say how many simultaneous streams it has, but we were able to watch it on two smartphones (using the Full Moon Features mobile app) and an Xbox One (using the FMF app for Xbox One). So it has at least three streams. That’s already better than Shudder and at least equal to Screambox.

Cloud DVR

On-demand streaming services don’t offer cloud DVR, and Full Moon Features is no exception. You can, however, use the Full Moon Features mobile app to download movies for offline viewing, which is kinda like a DVR.

Mobile app

The Full Moon Features mobile app is intuitive, looks good, runs like a dream, and is available for Android (4.1 stars) and iOS (4.6 stars).

We’ve watched five or six movies—online and off, thanks to the downloading feature—on a smartphone and have had no complaints or issues. And the watchlist and resume-watching features sync nicely across devices.

Full Moon Features on Xbox One

We’ve used the Full Moon Features app for Xbox One about as much as we’ve used its mobile app. We’re pretty happy with it except for two things:

  • There is no search capability; you’re limited to browsing the carousel menus.
  • While you can add and remove titles from your watchlist, there is no way to access said watchlist in this version of the app.

That won’t stop us from using the Full Moon Feature app for Xbox One—but it is frustrating.

Downloading movies for offline viewing works only with the Full Moon Features mobile app (Android, iOS), so you won’t be able to download movies to your hard drive.

Pro tip: If you log out of the Full Moon Features app, all of your downloaded content (excluding rented and purchased titles) will disappear and you’ll have to download them again.

Remember to download titles in advance on your home Wi-Fi so you don’t use your mobile data—or get stuck in an area without mobile service. But if you forget, another way to save data is to change your download quality in the app’s settings.

Full Moon Features support
Limited support

The Full Moon Features app supports a variety of devices, so you’ll likely have more than one way to watch. Smart TV users might be out of luck, though.

Night of the Full Moon Features vs. the Smart TVs

Full Moon Features doesn’t officially support smart TVs, but the service provides instructions so you can see if you can watch using your smart TV’s browser.

  • Sign up for the free 7-day trial so you don’t have to pay to perform this test.
  • Open your TV’s internet browser.
  • Navigate to the Full Moon Features site.
  • Enter your email address.
  • On a separate device, look for an email from Full Moon Features and click the link.
  • You should now be logged in on your TV browser.
  • Try playing a movie.

We tried this on an older LG smart TV (model 55UH615A). While we could sign in to FullMoonFeatures.com and navigate the site, we couldn’t play videos. That said, this TV is around six years old. You might get different results with a newer LG smart TV.

If your smart TV browser doesn’t work with Full Moon Features, and that’s a dealbreaker for you, don’t forget to cancel before the trial expires, or you’ll be charged.

Full Moon Features video and audio quality

Full Moon Features streams in 1080p, or full high-definition (HD). If you’re somewhere without Wi-Fi access, you can save data by adjusting the stream quality (you can choose high, medium, or low) in the app’s settings.

We tested Full Moon Features on an LG G8 ThinQ smartphone, the Xbox One (with the Full Moon app and through Amazon Prime Video via Prime Channels), and on an LG smart TV. In all cases, we had no complaints about the picture and sound quality.

As for the interface, Full Moon Features has simple, intuitive navigation via carousel menus. Playback controls include play/pause, 10-second jumps (rewind and fast-forward), skip-to-next, add-to-list, share, and download buttons. It’s simple, but effective.

Final take: Is Full Moon Features worth it?

Full Moon Features is totally worth it. You get heaps of content for $6.99 a month, and the annual subscription deal with free DVDs or Blu-rays is worth way more than its $59.99 a year price tag. By all means, sign up for Full Moon Features now.
