If you’re in the mood for a good scare, you came to the right place. While it’s easy to find big-budget or well-known films to freak you out, this list of truly terrifying options includes more than few under-the-radar diamonds in the rough — all of which are available to stream right now in the Amazon Prime Video library.

The following 32 films span the horror genre from psychological to supernatural, from the gory to the occult. There’s a little something for everyone in this unsettling sampler. These movies aren’t for the faint of heart. What they are is terrifying — and obscure enough that you can introduce them to your circle of friends. After all, misery loves company, right? Nothing says “you’re my BFF” like frightening the daylights out of someone.

Since this list focuses on lesser-known masterpieces of scary cinema, you won’t find icons like The Shining or Poltergeist. What you will find is more than two dozen really frickin’ scary films that any horror fan should watch. Read on for the best Prime Video horror movies streaming now (and find even more in their “Screaming Now” collection).
