Scariest Movies to Stream on Amazon Prime Video You Must-Watch

Amazon Prime Video’s horror section isn’t its most robust feature, but there is still a very strong presence when it comes to horror films across the decades.

Throwing in a little bit of the old alongside the new makes it an underrated platform for fans looking to catch up on some scares, as well as sporting some of the all-time classics that anyone new to the genre would have on their must-watch list.

While we’re looking forward to it developing further, these are some of the creepiest, cringiest, and outright scariest the service has to offer.

Train to Busan (2016)

The zombies here are among the scariest in recent memory, and the fast pace, social commentary, and solid characterization makes it feel like a season of a TV series packed into a feature-length film.

Suspiria (2018)

Its lean into the perfectionism demanded of students of many vocations creates an upsetting and surreal backdrop that manages to still pay some fanservice by including easter eggs and a delightful if brief cameo from the star of the original film, Jessica Harper.

When a Stranger Calls (1979)

In conjunction with its highly underrated sequel When A Stranger Calls Back, the story thrives as a commentary on the long-lasting effects of trauma.

The Wailing (2016)

Ruminating on the kind of evils that can’t be quelled by a good guy in a cape, The Wailing is one of the best horror movies ever made, but it’s not an easy ride.

Daniel Isn’t Real (2019)

Utilizing the classic fear of lack of possession to tell a story about a troubled, lonely young man, this is one of the better horror films released in recent years.
