Stream only in August: Amazon Prime Video is removing these masterpieces and cult films from its program

From the trash grenade with Arnold Schwarzenegger to the slimy sci-fi horror by David Cronenberg – you can only see numerous highlights for a short time with your Prime subscription.

On Amazon Prime Video * you will not only find numerous in-house productions such as “Die Weite der Nacht” or relatively current highlights such as the Oscar winner “Parasite”, but also a lot of classics that you may never have seen or have not seen for a long time – or want to look again and again anyway.

For a few days, however, the streaming platform has been listing some of them in the list of films that are only included in the Prime subscription for a maximum of 30 days. In most cases, however, it is not yet specified when exactly the films will be dropped from the range (as of August 7, 2020) – and that’s a good thing. Because that means that it won’t be that time in the next few days.

These masterpieces are about to disappear from Prime
