Need some fresh options to watch over the weekend? At the end of each week we compile a list of horror movies added to the Amazon Prime Video library, along with trailers and handy links to IMDb for your convenience. This week the streaming service only released six feature films in the horror genre (including a double feature), but unfortunately none of them are free (with ads) for non-Prime members.
