Amazon Prime Video welcomes October with loads of horror films – just as it should be! But there are also other blockbusters and a film that has won four Oscars. Here are five new streaming tips on Amazon Prime Video.
The Conjuring 1 + 2
Almost a classic: Just in time for the spooky season, Amazon Prime Video is switching The Conjuring: The Visitation and The Conjuring 2 free for all subscribers. If you are still looking for a few horror flicks for Halloween, you are on the safe side with these films. In the The Conjuring series you accompany the two demonologists Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorrain Warren (Vera Farmiga), whose scariest assignments are processed in the films.
The Warrens really exist, by the way – whether their scary stories are true is up to your imagination.
Stream the first two parts of The Conjuring from October 15, 2021 on Amazon Prime Video.
And on with creepy blockbusters: The remake of the Stephen King horror film IT from 2017 also comes to Amazon Prime Video, but initially only the first part. If you know the story or even the book, you know that you should see both films for the full story. In ES, a small US town is plagued by child abductions and murders that seem to repeat themselves every few decades. A group of outsiders wants to uncover the secret – and in the process discovers a horrific creature that only they can subdue.
Stream ES (2017) from October 24th on Amazon Prime Video.
Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse
Apocalypse Now is one of the most famous film classics worldwide. How bizarre and crass the shooting was and how the one-off war film became what it is now can be seen in this award-winning documentary. Hearts of Darkness: A Filmmaker’s Apocalypse was directed by Francis Ford Coppola’s wife Eleanor and shows the infamous filmmaker and actors at their nerve-wracking work.
The documentary won two primetime Emmys, among other things.

It is arguably one of the best biographies ever and a must for anyone who appreciates Queen’s music: Bohemian Rhapsody shows Freddie Mercury (played by Rami Malek) before and after the merger of Queen. The film grants an intimate glimpse into the chaotic life of Mercury, who, in addition to his insane success, also got to know the downsides of such a career.
Stream Bohemian Rhapsody on Amazon Prime Video now.
In addition to our streaming tips, October on Amazon Prime Video is also richly filled: Don’t just appear The Revenant and the Kubrick classic Eyes Wide Shut on the streaming portal, too, sneak a few not so well-known or completely new horror films in the selection. Come and see, it’s worth it.
