The critically acclaimed legal thriller Dark Waters is a thought-provoking feature film based on true events, and even all these years later, people are still eager to know if is available to stream on the streaming platform Netflix.

Dark Waters is available to rent on multiple platforms

Haynes has been in the spotlight once more for his work on the incredible Netflix film May December. Going through his filmography and want to watch Dark Waters? Well, unfortunately, you can't watch it on Netflix U.S. At this time, the drama is available to rent on the following platforms:

Though any of the mentioned platforms are satisfactory to use, I'd personally recommend signing up for Amazon Prime Video if you don't have an account already. Yes, Dark Waters is a little bit more expensive on that site, but the library Prime Video offers is better than the others. Along with Prime Video Originals and classic movies and shows available for free with a subscription, you can also rent or buy new movies as soon as they're released on VOD.

Additionally, we recommend Prime Video because of its add-ons. If you're a fan of shows and movies streaming on Max, you can access that platform through Prime Video. Same thing goes for MGM+, AMC+, Mubi, Starz, Paramount+, and even more! On top of that, Prime Video offers Freevee, which has another library for you to check out. All in all, Prime Video is a good investment if you love movies and shows.
