Here at Escapologic, we’re big fans of all things horror. All you have to do is take a brief look at our range of escape rooms to find inspiration taken from some of the best horror movies in the game, from ‘Saw’ to ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.
Of course, there’s no better time to indulge in a horror movie than Halloween, which is why we’ve been researching which streaming service is the best for horror movies this year, and has the most available to stream right now.
Our results are as follows:
The top 10:
1. Amazon Prime - 1,069 horror movies
2. Shudder - 461 horror movies

7. Disney+ - 100 horror movies

There’s no surprise that Amazon Prime comes out on top, with Shudder second - a horror, thriller and supernatural specific streaming service that was launched in the UK back in 2016.
Our research shows that Halloween is the perfect time for the unique, cultish, wacky and original to thrive, with sites such as ARROW, Cultpix, Classix, BFI Player and Mubi all making the top 10.
