Here's all the best spooky movies and TV shows to watch on Prime Video this Halloween

With Halloween just a jump-scare around the corner, finding the perfect movie to get us all in the spooky mood can be quite a task.

Luckily for you, we’ve curated the top ten picks of bone-chilling TV shows and movies available on Prime Video for you to binge during the scary season.

Whether you’re into slasher flicks or something mildly haunting for all your scary cats out there, these are the best movies to get your heart racing.

Goodnight Mommy

You’ll never look at your own mother the same way after watching Naomi Watt’s new truly terrifying redo of a 2014 Austrian chiller.

Goodnight Mommy begins when a pair of twin brothers arrive at their Mother’s country home to discover her face covered in bandages—the result, she explains, of recent cosmetic surgery. As her behaviour grows increasingly erratic and unusual, however, a horrifying thought takes root in the boys’ minds: the sinking suspicion that the woman beneath the gauze isn’t their mother at all.

Full body chills!

Candyman

This supernatural slasher film is one of the best flicks to come out of 2021.

With a screenplay written by the genius Jordan Peels, this remake tells the story of artist Anthony McCoy, who begins to look to superstitions as inspiration for his upcoming exhibition.

While down the rabbit hole, McCoy discovers Candyman, a terrifying urban legend of a killer who murders anyone muttering his name.

This film will undoubtedly have you clutching your pearls with some truly terrifying yet visually stunning sequences exploring this utterly creepy mythology.

Halloween Kills

Before you watch the final instalment, Halloween Kills is an absolute must. Especially witnessing scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis grace the silver screen as OG final girl Laurie Strode.

Halloween Kills follows on from the 2018 movie, as well as the first Halloween film, released back in 1978, but ignores all the sequels in between.

According to director David Gordon Green: "If the first film was somewhat retelling the origin of Myers and getting us up to speed with where Laurie had been all those years, then part two is about the outrage of Haddonfield.

"Mob Rules was our working title for the film. It's about a community that is united by outrage, and divided in how to deal with evil."

Happy Death Day

Think Groundhog Day meets Scream. This black comedy horror film will have you equally terrified and hysterically laughing.

For those unfamiliar with the premise, Happy Death Day tells the story of college student, Tree, who is murdered on the night of her birthday.

However, there’s a catch - each day, Tree wakes, relieving her birthday again and again, at which point she sets out to find her killer.

It’s sprinklings of a classic who dunnit murder paired with razor-sharp (literally) wit that is easily one of the most entertaining horror films made in recent years.

Get Out

This acclaimed horror movie, which is the brainchild of Jordan Peele, is an absolute must-see.

Get Out centres around famous photographer Chris, who travels to upstate New York for the weekend to meet his girlfriend Rose's family.

However, upon his arrival, Chris begins to question if Rose's family's overly accommodating nature is some failed attempt to accept their interracial relationship. But of course, in true Peel fashion, this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Get Out addresses the myriad levels of racism in modern America that’s met with incredible acting and striking imagery that will make your literal jaw

The Purge TV series

This series brought the epic franchise to the small screen, and we’re so thankful they did. The Purge follows a bunch of different characters from all walks of life, set in a dystopian world in 2027, where the government has sanctioned a 12-hour period legalising all crimes, including vandalism, theft, arson, and murder.

Also, throw in a terrifying death cult who use the ‘national holiday’ as their chance at revenge, and all hell breaks loose.

So this Halloween, make sure you head to Prime Video for the ultimate scary movie binge. While these are just our top picks, Prime also has countless other titles that will quench your blood thirst for horror this month.
