100 Great Horror Films to Stream in the Quarantine Era

Going into 2020, few could have predicted the real life horror film we would soon be living in. Many of us are now confined to our homes, and it doesn’t seem like that is going to change much in the immediate future. Thankfully, there is plethora of streaming content out there to soothe horror fans during these troubling times. Below is a carefully curated list of 100+ horror films that I recommend seeking out in the coming weeks/months. All are available to stream at no additional cost– provided you have a membership for each streaming service in question.

Should money be a significant issue, I recommend prioritizing either Netflix or Amazon Prime. Netflix carries a solid selection of contemporary horror gems, and Amazon has a diverse range of horror hits from throughout film history. Serious horror enthusiasts should also consider investing in a Shudder membership (TIP: They’re currently offering a 30-day free trial using the promo code “SHUTIN”). If you can deal with ads, Vudu, Tubi and Crackle are great free streaming options as well. Finally, if you don’t find the film(s) you’re looking for here, consider adding a Showtime and/or Starz channel extension to your Amazon account. The latter in particular has quite a few horror classics.
