Netflix and Amazon Prime offer a wide variety of content to watch. But having so many options leads to excessive confusion. These are movies that we recommend you watch if you have a rating of 8 or higher, so you won’t get lost in the chaos.
There are some horror movies that are rated high enough, but most of them are not rated as high as they should be. You should watch anything above a 6 rating if you are a fan of horror movies.
