Amazon must have taken notice of Netflix and Chills and Shudder’s 61 Days of Halloween, because they are now throwing their own hat into the scary streaming ring for Halloween 2021.

Amazon is joining in on the Halloween fun with Prime Video’s Now Screaming, and it’s the first time the streaming service has made such a strong push to reach fans of horror.

Now Screaming is described as a “genre based community focused on horror, thrillers and all things spooky.” @NowScreamingPV will be available on Twitter, TikTok and Instagram, and Prime members will be able to access a curated collection of films on Prime Video.

Fans can find out about new releases and old favorites, the curated collections, and even the history of the genre by following @NowScreamingPV.  Let’s jump in!
