In this age of online video, there’s only one thing that really keeps us awake at night: the thought of missing something on a subscription streaming service. In the case of Amazon Prime Video, it’s Mike Flanagan’s breakout horror Oculus, which departs this week, or such modern gems as John Wick and My Scientology Movie, also set to disappear into the night in the coming weeks.
From Vivien Leigh and Grace Kelly to Louis Theroux and Jim Carrey, this is your last chance to stream the following on Amazon Prime Video:
Oculus – 25th October
Before Mike Flanagan made Gerald’s Game and Hush, Karen Gillan starred in his inventively shot horror flick about an evil mirror. Trust us: it’s way better (and scarier) than it sounds.
Gone with the Wind – 1st November
Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn. If you’ve never seen this epic drama, starring Vivien Leigh, what are you waiting for?
Cloud Atlas – 1st November
Adapted from the best-selling novel by David Mitchell, Cloud Atlas is an exploration of how the actions of individual lives impact one another in the past, present and future. As one soul is shaped from a killer into a hero, an act of kindness ripples across centuries to inspire a revolution.
Goodfellas – 1st November
“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster…”
The Mask – 8th November
Jim Carrey’s rubber face is put to perfect use in this 90s fantasy thriller, about a timid blank clerk, Stanley Ipkiss, who discovers a magical mask containing the spirit of the Norse god Loki – and finds himself transformed when he puts it on.
Dial M for Murder – 8th November
Grace Kelly and Ray Milland star in this Hitchcock classic, which sees a former tennis pro plan to bump off his wife.
Limitless – 9th November
Bradley Cooper is on brilliant form in this smart thriller about a writer who discovers a drug that allows him to use all of his brain. Cooper brings an irresistible charm to the perfect pill-popper and a sympathetic desperation to the sober loser, while director Neil Burger and DoP Jo Willems (The Hunger Games) have a whale of a time with the visuals.
My Scientology Movie – 11th November
A masterful piece of non-fiction filmmaking, Louis Theroux’s My Scientology Movie is hugely entertaining and extremely troubling viewing.
Mustang – 12th November
Turkish-French director Deniz Gamze Erguven makes a stunning debut with this emotional coming-of-age drama, which was nominated for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
John Wick – 20th November
“People keep asking if I’m back and I haven’t really had an answer. But now, yeah, I’m thinking I’m back!”
