Top 10 Spooky Films on Amazon

I’m a bit of a film buff, particularly when it comes to horror, ghost and supernatural films (and books). I also love, love, love the ‘found footage’ genre of film, think back to the best and original of these in 1999 with the Blair Witch Project. So I decided to list my Top 10 movies…
