Finding a good movie to watch these days is such a hard task. There’s just so much choice and so little time that actually committing to a couple of hours of watching a film seems almost impossible. So a large majority of us waste time watching pointless Youtube videos, scrolling Twitter and Instagram or just binging old TV shows we’re already seen before. But what if we told you that there are quite a few good mystery movies that you can watch almost for free and they’ll be engaging enough that you’ll feel furry immersed in a story and won’t even notice the time passing? Sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? But Amazon Prime actually does have a whole bunch of mystery movies that you can watch for free if you have the membership, and we recommend you start with these.
1. Blow the Man Down
This is a new movie that was released this spring straight to Amazon Prime and it’s about two sisters who are attending a funeral of their mom in a sleepy boring town. Except after the funeral, one of them goes to get a drink to try and drown her sorrows and ends up in quite a pickle. She calls her sister to help her hide the evidence of her crime and in the process, the girls discover that their town isn’t as boring as they thought and has quite a seedy and dangerous underbelly and lots of their neighbours have many skeletons in their closet.
2. A Simple Favor
Who knew mystery movies could also be funny? This gem with Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively is a definite must-watch for those of you who love a solid movie full of unexpected plot twists and really good mysteries that just suck you in, but also wouldn’t mind a funny comedic moment once in a while to lighten the mood. Honestly, this idea of combining a comedy and a mystery in one movie is groundbreaking and we hope it becomes a genre of its own because we want more movies like this.
