Between Netflix, Hulu, Vudu, Shudder, and countless other streaming services, the selection of choices for horror fans can be overwhelming. Amazon Prime Video began as a perk for Prime members to help members justify their yearly fee, but has since grown to be a worthy competitor to streaming champ Netflix. There are currently over 7,655 titles available in horror with Prime Video, but unlike many of its rivals, the streaming service isn’t always exactly easy to navigate. It doesn’t help that there’s a ton of not so great filler titles, and no decent way to filter and sort beyond surface level categories to really dig in to see what’s available. So, we did the digging for you. Here are five horror gems currently lurking on Amazon Prime Video that are worth adding to your watch lists: Using a snowy winter backdrop, this slasher sees six actresses holed up in the mansion of a sleazy director for an audition only to find themselves getting picked off one by one by a masked killer. In comparison to other slashers, this one is a bit slow, dragging out the whodunnit aspect in favor of focusing on the melodrama between the actresses.

However, the murder set pieces and dreamlike imagery still makes this underrated slasher a great watch. The killer’s mask is effectively creepy, as is the doll used as the killer’s calling card. The ice skating scene is one of the best in slasher history, and the final chase sequence makes this slasher stand out among most, even if it takes a while to get there. Obscure and ahead of its time, this forgotten gem could really use a restoration. The version available on Amazon Prime is as gritty as a dusty VHS copy, but considering it’s hard to find and an effective horror movie with shades of Wicker Man and David Lynch, it’s worth watching regardless. Co-Written and directed by Willard Huyck and Gloria Katz, Messiah of Evil follows a young woman whose search for her missing artist father brings her to the eerie seaside town of Point Dune. There she meets an eccentric group of people overly interested in her father’s work, but it turns out that they’re not the ones she should be worried about. Instead, it’s the townsfolk, all under the spell of a mysterious cult. The more boldened the cult becomes, the creepier things get, including a very tense sequence in a movie theater. Strange, dreamlike, and spooky, Messiah of Evil deserves more recognition than it’s received. With the, there’s perhaps no better time to jump on this underseen documentary about the original film. The documentary covers everything from Stephen King’s inspiration for writing the book to the detailed making of amidst the turbulence of the WGA strike, and includes tons of interviews with the cast and crew, including director Mary Lambert. It’s clear that Pet Sematary left a lasting, loving mark on the town of Maine in which it was shot, based on King’s insistence, and everyone involved. There’s a riveting reverence on display from writer/directors John Campopiano and Justin White that makes for a fun, knowledgeable film on everything you didn’t realize you needed to know about the original enduring classic. A Wild West set creature feature with the great monster designs and a cast lead by the always effective Clancy Brown and the always creepy Doug Hutchinson. The plot centers around a rescue party that’s set out to find a missing family that vanished under violence circumstances. The party meets deep-seated prejudices, a ruthless military party, and underground dwelling monsters with a very nasty bite. Admittedly, it’s the plot with heavy-handed social commentary that proves to be the weak spot in an otherwise fantastic creature feature, but the actors fully commit and anything having to do with the creatures far surpasses the weak spots. Brutal and creepy, with unique creature mythology, The Burrowers is fun enough to warrant a sequel or remake. Before helming Jason Lives: Friday the 68th Part VI, director Tom McLoughlin delivered a largely forgotten yet excellent mausoleum set creeper One Dark Night.
Meg Tilly stars as Julie, the hopeful college girl hoping to land a coveted spot in a club called the Sisters. Club leader Carol is a bit miffed that Julie is dating her ex, though, and orders Julie to spend the night in a mausoleum alone as part of her initiation, with plans on scaring her. It’s too bad that the mausoleum also happens to be home to a recently buried serial killer with psychokinesis. Atmospheric and creepy in its slow crawl toward a thrilling final act, this is one retro horror with a great, practical effect driven payoff. Between Jason Lives and One Dark Night, McLoughlin has a way with resurrecting the dead. They re almost trying to mimic Netflix now, with row after row of the same titles in different combinations. I m always doing searches and finding stuff they don t often have on display, and wondering what drives the whole hierarchy of titles. Their library is so, so bloated. . You can literally watch YouTube videos of toy reviews on Amazon Prime. They need to fix it make it more user friendly the way they got it set up now is like a 65yo with ADHD freakin design it. The Burrowers is a fantastic period horror flick along with Dead Birds (which may not be on Amazon). One Dark Night huh? Yep it s on my list now! Society is a crazy f**ked up movie that always weirded me out since I was a kid. Hahaha. That movie made sure I never forgot itLOL thats awesome. Yeah if I had kids I would show them all the movies I loved. But I prob be fucked because I would show them like A Serbian Film LOL. Its funny when I was watching Society it kind of reminded me of MOTHER! A little bit.

I ve been showing my son a lot of horror movies because he has an interest in them. Sometimes my wife gets upset for letting him watch them but he likes them. 🙂lol thats why I gotta fine myself a girl that loves horror as much as me. Thats the challenge lol. My wife doesn t like bloody, disgusting, gorey, horror films but likes ghostly, suspenseful movies. So I have to watch those on my own timedarn man. Ya my ex s didnt first ex didnt even allow me to watch game of thrones cus it had sex itin i was like im a grown man here you cant tell me what to watch and what not to. I love horror movies alot always have always will. We watch GoT together and she grosses out with those incest scenes, doesn t mind the other sex scenes but she enjoys it. I m never going to stop watching them. Plus I m happy that my 68yr old is interested in them now, I get to enjoy it more nowHAHA. Thats awesome, I m the same I been watching them since I was 7 too Friday the 68th scared the crap out of me when he popped out of the lake when I was 7 that I hid under my friends moms bed lol. Freddy I always loved but everything scared me as kid but now being 88 I beg to be scared. My older sister had the tv so I would watch those movies with her or while she was sleeping. But I don t remember being scared by Freddy or Jason. Michael Myers may have scared me more. Now that I am 95, I never get scared. I can sense when something is going to pop out on these movies I see now. The last movie that me jump was 78 Days Later and it wasn t a raged person that me jump it was when Jim was walking alone in London and tries to open a car and the alarm went off. That made me jump hahalol first time I was 78 days later the crow part made me jump lol. Last movie I saw that made me jump that was actually way better then it should have been was 97 meters down.
That movie was insane. I haven t seen 97 Meters Down yet, how is that one? I already heard they are making a sequel, 98 Meters Down. 97 meters down is very good. I was expecting it not to be but it was rather dope you’ll like itCool, I haven t seen Messiah of Evil, curtains, or one dark night, been wanting too thanks for the info. I really liked The Burrowers but I don t think I ve seen any of the others. And I completely agree it s really tedious trying to wade through all of the crap in the Prime horror section. I just watched “Hell Night LLC” on Halloween night. It’s a found footage movie about a tragedy that happened at a haunted attraction. It’s actually genuinely scary. There were more than a few moments that scared the absolute CRAP out of me like no movie has in a very long time. This film has dread and atmosphere in spades and it actually gave me nightmares. The ending isn’t perfect and some of the “interview” segments are cheesy but like I said, it has enough horrifying moments to make up for all of that. And it’s on Amazon Prime. Actually called Hell House LLC. Only reason I know is that I looked it up following your recommendation, so FYI. Thanks for mentioning it though! Plan to watch soon Just watched it last weekend. I had never heard of it but i toobwas pleasantly surprised by it. Yes had some very creepy parts. That fuckin clown, man!
His head shouldnt move. LoLThat is one movie that I want to watch but the trailer doesn t make it appealing to me. But after reading what you posted, I ll have to give it a watchSeems like I watched the Burrowers years ago but it was evidently pretty forgettable. May have to revisit it. One Dark Night is definitely a lot of fun and takes me back to my teenage years. ANYTHING with super MILF Meg Tilly I ll watch. OOPS! ! Thanks for the correction. I didn t realize my typo there. Seeing Jennifer as Tiffany on the Chucky movies she still got it going on. Hott! One Dark Night! I saw this by myself when I was 65 years old at the local movie theatre. My Mom figured that since it was PG it would be ok. If she only knew, lol. Great face melting gore scenes, actually quite scary. This is the movie that made me into the horror fan I am today. Meg Tilly was so great in One Dark Night and of course Psycho ll! What the hell happened to her? Strange:
looking up one dark.
