To help you, dear reader, to fully get into the mood of this date that we love so much, we continue with our series of articles with tips on films and series that are very suitable to be watched and celebrated on this occasion of scares and chills, but also a lot of fun. Continuing with this year’s column, we now bring tips on the second most popular streaming when we think about the format: Amazon Prime Video. Here we will be focusing on great horror movies for you to watch on the date. Check below 10 works of the genre that we selected for you to start the marathon by getting into the Halloween spirit.
We start the list of Halloween tips on Amazon Prime Video with a production that is one of the flagships of the platform for this Halloween. Released exclusively on the company’s streaming service, it is the long-awaited Hollywood remake of the 2014 Austrian cult film. In the plot, a mother and her two twin sons live on a rural property far from the city. The boys, however, begin to suspect that there is something very wrong with their mother after she returns from facial surgery showing strange behavior. Even more so when she needs to wear a mask for healing, preventing the little ones from seeing her face. The new version features the Oscar-nominated Naomi Watts in the role of matriarch.
the cult classic The Mystery of Candyman is completing 30 years of its premiere in 2022. To celebrate this man who is considered one of the icons of the genre and one of the most important horror villains (due to his social theme) nothing better than watching this tribute at the height, which mixes remake and continuation, and that Amazon brings exclusively on its platform. Respectful of the concept and creative, the production has the involvement of Jordan Peele – the king of horror with current content.
Speaking of Jordan Peele, here’s another tip of a director’s movie for halloween. Leaving the world of comedy, the filmmaker changed genres when he made his debut as director of this horror feature that, not only scared audiences around the world, but also became one of the most beloved films of recent years, embraced by audiences and critics alike, reaching until the Oscars. skin it changed genre, but did not leave aside the humor, and managed to stand out precisely for taking a vein of “social terror” for itself, improving it and raising it to another level. The topic here is racism.
Take the time to watch:
It’s rare when we get a remake of a beloved production that actually works. This is the case with the reimagining of one of the most popular horror films of the 80’s, Killer toy – the story of the scary doll Chucky. The original 1988 film was so successful that it spawned no less than six sequels and is currently catching the attention of fans on the small screen, with its own TV series. Before that, however, a new idea was tried on top of the character, which may not have pleased everyone, but was undoubtedly quite creative, following a different path from its predecessor.
Just when we think there is no more creativity in the slasher subgenre (teen movies in which a masked killer chases young people), behold, some talented filmmaker keeps pulling rabbits out of the hat. Here, for example, what the filmmakers do is take the slasher formula and combine it with that of “repetition time” films, brought by Time Spell (1993) – the kind in which the same day is repeated endlessly. In this case, each time the protagonist is murdered, she returns to the point of origin, needing to find a way to put an end to this nightmare. A good choice for anyone looking for a “lighter” horror film.
Following the reverse path of the item above, The witch it’s nothing light, quite the contrary, it promises to give you nightmares, being recommended only for those with a very strong stomach. At the same time, it may not be recommended for those who enjoy a more usual and “easy consumption” film. The feature, although much worshiped by moviegoers, is not for all tastes and audiences, since it has a narrative considered a little slower. Even though, The witch is a find and revealed the filmmaker Robert Eggerswhich seems to have managed to extract nightmares and put them on film.
Produced by trendy Guillermo del Torothis film is based on the series of books by the author Alvin Schwartz. The footprint here is almost juvenile, something like the writer RL Stine would write. However, they are works with great “Halloween” value contained in them. Precisely for this reason, this first film adaptation of some of the books is extremely appropriate for the date. the fans of Stranger Things will notice similarities and will certainly embrace this story about a group of teenage friends facing supernatural threats and frightening monsters.
So far, all the tips in the article have been from newer productions on Amazon Prime Video. But younger horror fans may be tired of knowing and having seen these movies. For them and for the nostalgic fans who want to see it again, here we bring you the recommendation of a true timeless classic – that everyone needs to watch at least once in their lives. Rosemary’s Babyin Roman Polanski, is one of the most celebrated and influential films of the genre of all time, and raises the fear of pregnancy, present in all women, to maximum power. Is it a masterpiece that speaks?
It’s almost impossible to make a list of recommendations for Halloween without some production that has the touch of Stephen King – after all, the author is considered a true master of horror, in addition to being one of the most adapted writers for cinema of all time. Here, our selection was for a film that fits more into the genre of suspense than horror itself, as it does not have supernatural elements in its narrative. The plot is so powerful that it has even been taken to the stages of Broadway and also in Brazil. King plays with his own persona when telling about a famous writer who ends up suffering a car accident in the snow and falls under the care of his biggest fan – which becomes a huge problem for the subject.
Finishing the list of tips, we have another exclusive production on the Amazon Prime Video platform, which brought the feature to Brazil. A clear example of “terrir”, this film has many similarities with the British style of humor, that is, a drier and more uncomfortable humor, especially the films of Edgar Wright. What many may not know is that the film is based on a video game. In the plot, a straight-laced new sheriff arrives in a cold, snow-covered small town. He needs to investigate strange happenings in the place and deal with the eccentric residents, to say the least. Occurrences may be linked to the legendary figure of the werewolf.
