Prime Video: 5 movies you can’t miss on Halloween 2022

We take a look at some of the best horror movies you can find on Prime Video right now, right on time to get a good dose of scares for the spookiest night of the year.

Halloween is almost here, and to celebrate we’ve been looking for some of the best horror movies you can find on streaming services. We’ve already shown you a few lists, which you can find through these links, but now it's time to see what Prime Video has to offer.

As the service has a ton of titles available, choosing only 5 for Halloween night is pretty difficult. However, we decided to choose only those you can already stream with your basic subscription, and not the hoards of movies available to “rent” on the platform. So let's get ready for some scares, gore, dread and more. Turn off the lights, get some snacks, and choose one of the following movies… if you dare…
