We’ll start with a movie from the April drop. Invisible Life one you possibly overlooked due to subtitles, but it really is something you should give a chance.
Two sisters are separated by a lie, but will do everything they can to find each other. At the same time, they search for their dreams in 1950s Rio de Janeiro.
4. Friday the 13th
Okay, so the first movie isn’t on Amazon Prime Video, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Friday the 13th Part III and Part IV are both on the streaming service. They’re not terrible sequels to the original movies.
If you haven’t watched them yet, give them a shot. If you have watched them yet, why not watch them again and see if they’re as good or as bad as you remember?
Not the original, but the 2011 remake of Footloose made its way to Amazon Prime Video at the end of April. Now is the time to put it on.
This is one that the family can enjoy together. It’s a fun tale of a boy who heads to a town where music and dancing are outlawed. He’s going to fix that situation with his love of both.
The 1980 horror movie is now on Amazon Prime Video, and certainly one worth watching. Inferno follows Rose, a poet who learns that her apartment was once the house of Three Mothers. She pleads with her brother to see her, terrified by the news. However, when he gets there, she’s already dead.
This is a thematic sequel to Suspiria, the second story in Dario Argentino’s Three Mothers trilogy. You don’t need to watch the first movie to follow the story, but it is worth it.
1. Daughters of Darkness
The 1971 movie, Daughters of Darkness, is also on Amazon Prime Video now. If you’ve never heard of it, stop what you’re doing and put the movie on right now! It’s a must-watch for all.
Daughters of Darkness follows newlyweds who stop at a French hotel on their way to England. They meet a beautiful woman who has supposedly been ther efor 40 years. However, she’s never aged. When she introduces herself as Countess of Bathory, the newlyweds can’t help but question things.
