Hulu is popular, but Amazon Prime is also a potential treasure trove for horror freaks, and the folks at Flick Connection have put together a Top 10 list of scary movies currently available there.

Official Synopsis: With the previous success of my Top 10 Horror movies on Netflix lists I want to recommend the Top 10 Horror Movies on Amazon Prime Video. There are some pretty good horror flicks to be had on Amazon Prime currently but these are some of the best. The movies to watch on this list only get more frightening the closer you get to number one. At Flick Connection, we love Horror movies but Amazon Prime does a poor job of letting you know what to watch on Prime Video so we like to provide weekly videos that help you figure out what to watch on streaming services.
If you’re having trouble finding good horror movies on Amazon Prime, this list as well as my previous list should tide you over for quite a while! Watch these movies at your own risk. These are great movies to watch with someone who gets easily scared or to watch by yourself with the lights off. If you’ve seen any of the films on this list, let us know. If you think Amazon Prime has scarier movies to offer please share them in the comments section below.
