Thread: The Best Horror Movies Currently Streaming
Platforms
  1. PC
  2. Xbox
  3. PlayStation
  4. Nintendo
While this is my opinion I am going to try and signal boost movies that OTHER people like and I don't because I want this to serve as a good recommendation list for anyone as best as I can. But I'll be sure to note the difference between films I'm a fan of and ones I'm not because for some people it might matter what someone so immersed in the genre prefers, then again you can be so immersed your taste becomes detached from what mass audiences would like. Well... whatever...

I'm starting with Amazon Prime because they have my favorite selection.


Movies I Legit LOVE

City of the Living Dead


This is my favorite horror currently streaming on Amazon Prime. It's Italian horror, it's especially gory, great atmosphere, surreal, it has zombies and other supernatural occurences. Good for people who can handle poor dubbing and movies that don't make a ton of sense.

Lifeforce

This is about space vampires, it has some really cool imagery and creepy shit in the first half and the second half goes full blown insane. The practical effects and general look of this film are so top notch, it has a fun score that admittedly feels a bit more like an adventure film score than a horror film score and it does play out a bit like a dark adventure.

An American Werewolf in London

This is from John Landis, dude who gave you Trading Places, Coming to America, Animal House and the Blues Brothers (and Max Landis unfortunately). This is a horror film from him that is the absolute best werewolf film ever made. The comedy is there but it's pretty pitch black. Absolutely love this movie and to be honest you're going to think it's better than the two movies I put above it and I won't fault you for it.

Hellraiser
Hellbound: Hellraiser II


The first two Hellraiser movies are awesome sadistic horror. If you like stuff about Hell and you like hard to watch violence involving chains and hooks digging into people check it out. The sequel goes fully nuts in the second half with a great visual representation of Hell that's unique.

Deep Red

Italian Giallo horror from Dario Argento, it's a murder mystery and a lot of damn fun, great score.

Gamera 1, 2 and 3 (the '90s ones)

The Heisei Gamera trilogy isn't traditionally what I'd call horror but the site I'm using for this list does so whatever, these are the absolute best Kaiju films in the business alongside the original Godzilla and Shin Godzilla.

Phantasm

Really cool surreal/sci-fi horror with inspirations from Dune among other things.

Phenomena

Another Argento flick, this one is a bit less giallo as it has more supernatural elements, the score is still fun but they also sometimes just blast metal music over kill scenes haha, see Jennifer Connelly for I think her first role? as the star of the film.

Slugs

Really fun natural horror flick that feels like a gruesome throwback to older creature features.

The Church

This one had Argento on as producer or something but the director went on to do the amazing Cemetery Man. This film is about a Church built on the bodies of a massacred village and it goes PROPER NUTS with the supernatural shit.

The Stuff

This is a comedy that's too gross to not be put in horror about the newest food craze that you probably don't want to be eating. The practical effects are awesome and sometimes awesomely hilarious.

The Crazies

The original Romero version is a great film and a big step up for me from his more revered Night of the Living Dead.

Humanoids From the Deep

Roger Corman schlock about gross creatures that rape our women and murder our men. It's a bit of a Jaws rip-off but instead of a mayor worried about tourism it's all about some cannery being put in town. The finale is great.

Bad Taste


Peter Jackson's (The Lord of the Rings) first film is about a crew of nerdy scientists taking on an alien invasion and it is one of the grossest and funniest horror movies you'll ever see.

Contamination


This is one of those Italian horror flicks that may throw you guys, I love it, it's a goofy James Bond-esque story about a drug cartel type who is smuggling weird alien eggs that make people's chests explode (yes, it's an Alien rip-off). Lots of fun practical effects in a very silly movie I don't expect all of you to enjoy lol.

The Descent

This is a really well done film from Neil Marshall who'd go on to slum it directing the best Game of Thrones episodes because his career went down the tubes after the totally underappreciated Doomsday. This one is handled dead serious, it's an all-female cast without feeling one bit woke and has as much drama to it as horror, just incredibly well done.

Hatchet
Hatchet III
Hatchet II


These are like if the Friday the 13th movies were as bad as your parents pretended they were, absolutely hilarious as well.

The Being

I've been waiting for the blu release this week to re-watch this but I remember a fun ass silly '80s horror about an alien.

Midsommar

Artsy horror about a religious cult and a bad break-up. I related to the main character's anxiety problems and the cult has some fun stuff going on, I get why people don't like it, though.

The Ring

I prefer the remake to the Japanese original, come at me, bro.

The Collector


Sort of like a Saw film with a house full of traps, really well filmed and fun.

Chopping Mall

Really silly and awesome '80s movie with gay robots patrolling a mall and killing anyone still inside.

Child's Play


Classic slasher that doesn't quite live up to the status it's given but is still a fun time.

Children of the Corn

Fun film that will make you reconsider having children.

Society

Body horror of the weirdest type. Also stuff about social classes in society if that matters to you.

HBO MAX


Films I LOVE

Day of the Dead

Probably my favorite zombie movie.

A Nightmare on Elm Street

Absolute classic, best Wes Craven film.

Poltergeist

The ultimate haunted house film (not my favorite, though)

Scanners

David Cronenberg movie about telepathic people at war, really cool thriller with some horrifying gore.

Rabid


David Cronenberg film about a weird pseduo-vampire causing a zombie outbreak, fun as hell.

A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge

Totally underrated sequel that's dripping with atmosphere... but also homoeroticism...

Godzilla

The classic original.

The Shining

What will probably be most peoples favorite of this list even if they watch everything. Great film but a little dry for me compared to the ones above it.

AVPR: Aliens vs. Predator - Requiem

You guys will probably hate this but it's so insane I love it.

Jason Goes to Hell

Similar to the above entry, just complete insanity.

Doctor Sleep

This is a really well done sequel to the Shining that hews closer to King's work than Kubrick's which may put off Shining fans but it certainly has its nods towards that for you guys. That said if this isn't the extended cut I'd wait to watch it.

Bram Stoker's Dracula

Classic tale with an all-star cast and the director of the Godfather trilogy behind it. Very classy.

From Dusk Till Dawn


This is the ultimate SLEAZY vampire movie haha, total coincidence I put them near each other in the list.

Godzilla vs. MechaGodzilla

Probably my favorite Showa era film besides the original.

The Brood

Another great Cronenberg flick that's best watched not knowing what you're in for.

Rodan

No Godzilla in this one but still lots of fun.

The Collection

Great sequel to the Collector that ups the ante.

Godzilla vs. Hedorah aka Godzilla vs the Smog Monster
Destroy All Monsters
Godzilla vs Gigan
Godzilla Raids Again
King Kong


If you like big monsters you'll enjoy these, but they aren't the best... well... King Kong is like the original so you gotta give it credit for that.

Saw VI
Saw III
Saw 3D
Saw
Saw V
Saw IV
Saw II


I think the Saw franchise is loads of fun but it's not for everyone.

Movies I LOVE

The Beyond
City of the Living Dead
Zombie
The House by the Cemetery


The best movies by Lucio Fulci are all in one place... these are violent, surreal nightmares with awesome scores/atmosphere.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
Halloween


These two are the ultimate slasher films.

Hellraiser
Hellbound: Hellraiser II


Ultimate sadistic horror.

The Howling

Second best werewolf movie.

Re-Animator

Lovecraftian horror comedy with an amazing Jeffrey Combs performance.

Pieces

Totally awesome slasher that feels like an Argento type flick but nastier.

Halloween III: Season of the Witch

Totally underrated sequel that is about an evil mask-making company.

Deep Red

Classic Argento giallo/murder-mystery.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

Totally underrated sequel that goes more a completely different tone from the original, this time it's over the top and funny.

Tenebre

Another great Argento giallo/mystery.

Street Trash

One of the most absurd and gross movies you'll ever see.

Basket Case

Another of the most absurd movies you'll ever see, lots of laughs.

Humanoids From the Deep

The Creatures look cool and dumb and they rape your women.

The Hills Have Eyes

Wes Craven original is absolutely harrowing.

The Fog

Great atmospheric Carpenter film.

Phenomena

Argento flick with supernatural elements.

Mandy
Color out of Space


These two recent Nic Cage starring, violent and visually astounding films need to be seen by everyone.

Dead Heat

Buddy cop movie with zombies.

BTW I watched Creature on Paramount+, it's the uncensored version, I would assume all versions are since they probably use the same one as each other but can't say for sure. I CAN say for sure that probably none of you will like it as much as me, it's a big rip-off of Alien and the Thing and my love for those makes it easy to enjoy but some people aren't going to want a lesser version of those two films, even with a fun eccentric performance by Klaus Kinski thrown in.

You must get different choices in the US. The Descent (which is absolutely brilliant) is not included in Amazon Prime in the UK.
