I’m not the type to choose a horror flick for movie night. In fact, the few times I’ve watched horror movies were either because my best friend really wanted to watch one (so I gave in) or I was forced into it one way or another. Still, after having gone through Insidious alive, my tolerance has increased drastically.
With Halloween coming up, I might just give a couple of horror movies a go. You know, joining the spirit and all.
If you’re a horror aficionado, and you just love how Netflix gives you what you want, then take a look at this list of Netflix horror movies. They’re sure to give you one heck of a ride (even if you might have seen some before).
If you’re not really into horror but want to dip your toes in the water, why not give these a try anyway? Make sure you’ve got a nice, supportive person with you – not one who’d think it hilarious to scare you even more.
Netflix horror movies to watch this month – and beyond
The Blair Witch Project
It may not be the highest rated horror movies of all time, but it’s got to be on everyone’s watch list. The “amateur” camera work makes it even more realistic, so make sure to turn the lights off for maximum effect.
A demon living in your intestines. What more can you want? This movie is a horror comedy, so it’s perfect for non-hardcore horror movie watchers.
For the uninitiated, The Babadook might sound a tad weird, maybe silly. But this movie is anything but.
“A single mother, plagued by the violent death of her husband, battles with her son’s fear of a monster lurking in the house, but soon discovers a sinister presence all around her.”
Good luck with that.
Curse of Chuckie
This “old” movie (1987) is Clive Barker’s entry into the world of feature films and revolves around a cheating wife, an ex-lover who’s now a zombie, demons, and then some. Up for it?
The House of the Devil
The title may seem ordinary – of course, there has to be a horror movie with that title, right? – but with an 80s touch, this movie about a college student working on the side as a babysitter and experiencing things that no one would want to…you know where this is headed.
Let the Right One In
I saved this for last because if I were asked what my favorite horror/thriller movie was, then I’d say ‘Let the Right One In‘. It’s got kids. It’s got vampires. And it’s got a touch (Swedish) that’s different from the usual horror flicks.
Have you seen any of these? Which ones do you like best? What’s on your Halloween must-watch list?
