5 must-watch movies on Amazon for October 13, 2021

Bingo Hell

This film is one of the four in 2021’s Welcome to Blumhouse collection. Bingo Hell follows a group of senior citizens who will not allow anyone to disrupt their low-income community. No matter how frightening they are.

As the body count starts to rise, Mr. Big takes over the local bingo hall things take a terrifying turn. The local seniors decide they might be retired, but that doesn’t mean they will allow something sinister to take over their neighborhood.

Also, check out the other three Blumhouse releases, Black as Night, Madres, and The Manor. 

Halloween with the New Addams Family 

With the popularity of the Addams Family, I thought I would add this oldie but goodie to the list. Halloween with the New Addams Family is a Halloween special that aired in 1977. This special brought back most of the original cast from the series.

The story sees some burglars who are trying to get their hands on the Addams family fortune. But, instead, they end up dealing with the weird goings-on at the Addams’ house as they prepare for their annual Halloween party.

The Taking of Deborah Logan

The found-footage supernatural horror film, The Taking of Deborah Logan, was released in 2014. It is the directorial debut of Adam Robital, who would go on to direct Insidious: The Last Key. 

A group of students wants to create a documentary about Deborah, an Alzheimer’s patient. What started as a simple filming project turns sideways as bizarre things begin to happen.

This film holds a 90% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, and other critics have given in positive reviews, stating that this is found footage done right.

The Lie

The Lie is one of the best films I have watched recently. This film is a psychological horror and well worth the watch. Starring Mireille Enos, Peter Sarsgaard, Nicholas Lea, and Joey King. It is a remake of a German film titled We Monsters. 

Good intentions of a father and daughter end in terrible results.

That is all I will say because you don’t want anything spoiled in this one. Check it out if you love a great thriller.


The ’80s gave us many great slasher films and some great horror comedies. Among the horror comedies is House, a movie released in 1986 starring some great ’80s actors, including William Katt, George Wendt, Richard Moll, Kay Lenz, and Felix Silla.

Roger Cobb (Katt) moves into his aunt’s house, passed down to him after her death by suicide. Cobb is an author who is under pressure from his publisher to write his next book. Generally a horror author, Cobb decides to write a novel based on his experiences in Vietnam.

When strange things occur in the house, he reaches out to his neighbor, who just thinks he is crazy. Then he discovers the house that takes things to a new creepier level.

Next. Hotel Transylvania 4 is not coming to Amazon in October 2021. dark
