If you’re in the mood for something scary, there’s nothing like the thrill of a good horror movie. The tingles, goosebumps, and heart-pounding horror of poltergeists and witches is only one flavor of horror, though. There’s also the side of horror that welcomes lovable characters with a dash of terror, like sexy vampires or ghosts that play on your sympathy. Whatever kind of mood you’re in, here is a list of some of the best horror movies that can be found in the ever-changing Amazon Prime library right now.

Political corruption, murders, time travels, mystery islands, and secret spies, this selection has some of the best new thriller additions to the Netflix catalog. They are all 6 episode long or less, which make them perfect to binge-watch during the weekend.
Listening to “Sur Le Quai” from Les Parapluies de Cherbourg, one couldn’t help but step in the shapes of the cobblestone streets and waltz along with the strings and the twinkling melody.

Through his lifetime, he worked closely with French New Wave film director Jacques Demy.
Horror is a genre that requires a lot from its readers.

It would be an understatement to say that Netflix’s “You” is a hugely popular show. With three successful seasons now and a fourth one on the way, the Penn Badgley starring thriller seems to be going strong with it not losing steam anytime soon.
