Shawn has been infatuated with the post-apocalyptic genre since he wore out his horribly American-dubbed VHS of the original Mad Max as a child. Someone over at Amazon HQ is clearly a fan of the genre, because there are an unusually abundant number of quality films on the service that will make you double-check that the doors are locked at night when you’re done watching.
This one is slightly better, a slow-burn Western that stars Kurt Russell, Patrick Wilson, Matthew Fox, and Richard Jenkins as a posse of men who hunt a group of indigenous savages. Drew Goddard’s dissection of the entire horror genre is so great because it’s also a wonderful scary movie on its own terms.
With a great cast that includes a pressure Chris Hemsworth, Richard Jenkins, and Bradley Whit ford, The Cabin in the Woods is endlessly rewatchable thanks in large part to a razor-sharp script from Goddard and Joss When, bringing some of the wit that we saw in their collaborations together on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel to the big screen.

Make sure you’re in the right mental place before watching ARI Aster’s 2018 debut film, a movie that will rattle you to your core.

Robert Atkinson stars as a passenger aboard what is essentially a prison ship to the edge of the universe. One of the best things about Bong Jewish winning multiple Oscar for his brilliant Parasite (also on Hulu) is the exposure likely led more people to his other works, including The Host, one of the best monster movies ever made.
In fact, this story of a creature in the Han River also stars the leading man from Parasite, the wonderful Song Anglo. Clearly inspired by gore masters like Lewis and Argent, but with his own hillbilly horror style, Zombie was a filmmaker who felt like he had a loyal following from his very first shoot.
Ti West makes the kind of the slow-burn horror movies that simmer their way to explosive final acts. His best to date remains this 2009 genre flick starring Jocelyn Donahue as a college student hired to babysit by a creepy couple.
Clearly, there’s something wrong, but West delays the payoff until the very end, allowing tension to build with each passing scene. After the success of Scream, writer Kevin Williamson became one of the hottest voices in Hollywood and this 1997 offering became nearly as popular as Craven’s film.

Clive Barker’s Books of Blood is being adapted for Hulu in October, but one of the best stories from that anthology was already made into an underrated film back in 2008.

Amazon’s horror selection is even better if you have the Shudder add-on, but they do have exclusive streaming rights to ARI Aster and A24’s excellent Midsummer, the story of a vacation gone horribly awry.

The twist at the end of this 2004 thriller dominated the surrounding conversation, but don’t lose sight of how effective and well-made it is before M. Night Shaman upends it in the final act.
