Thanksgiving Horror Movie Binge Watch List (Amazon, Shudder, & Netflix)
It’s here….Thanksgiving. Once you finished stuffing your face with turkey and pie while listening to your family members talk and talk about things you really might not care about. Well, if you are like me. You want to retreat to the comfort of your sofa and binge watch some good horror movies.
To save you time in sorting through the hundreds of possible choices, we wanted to put together 3 binge watch lists for this long Thanksgiving weekend. The first list is for Amazon. While I tried to get movies that are “free” with Amazon Prime; some of the selections are in the buy/rent category. The second list is for Shudder. And last but not least is the list for Netflix.
Hope you enjoy. Feel free to connect with us on Facebook and share your favorite holiday binge watch list.

Synopsis: Leatherface is a prequel to the Texas Chain Saw Massacre. It’s the story origin story of how the killer we all love so much came to be. The movie features a teenage Leatherface who escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnapping a young nurse, and taking her on a road trip from hell, while being pursued by a lawman out for revenge.
I will be the first to admit that I was extremely skeptical about the film. I really thought that they were going to mess this one up. But I really got it wrong. Leatherface is a well done horror movie that gives us a believable origin story to one of the greatest killers in the horror genre. It’s definitely worth the roughly $6.99 to rent on Amazon.
