To appreciate fully what the world of film has to offer it’s best to watch a wide variety of what’s out there rather than just focus on one genre. That said, there are times when nothing but a great horror film will do. The horror selection on Amazon Prime runs deep, but a few pages in it starts to be dominated by low-budget obscurities. There’s a lot of cream near the top, however, which offers a generous sampling of what horror has to offer. So here are the 10 best horror movies on Amazon Prime right now.
The Midnight Meat Train (2008)
Run Time: 102 min | IMDb: 6.1/10
Bradley Cooper stars in this grisly thriller about a subway killer committing massacres and the photographer in charge of catching him. Cooper plays Leon, a photographer hoping for his big break who discovers a man has been killing subway riders of the midnight train. As Leon tries to stop the murderer, he pulls his friend, girlfriend, and the police into the hunt. There’s a ton of violence, gore, and a bizarre ending but Cooper sells the hell out of this thing.
Run Time: 127 min | IMDb: 7.3/10
