Best Horror Movies to Watch on Netflix For Halloween
Bird Box -2019
Starring Sandra Bullock and John Malkovich, the movie takes place in an apocalyptic world where a mysterious phenomenon causes people to kill themselves. The only way to escape death is to go blind…
It - 2017
This 2017 film is one of the few remakes that is actually as good as the original version... and might actually be better! Stranger Things star Finn Wolfhard plays alongside a group of youngsters, with Bill Skarsgard playing the role of terrifying clown Pennywise. The movie is supported by brilliant performances.
Hereditary - 2018
ThIs movie follows the story of a family who go through two traumatic losses. After the death of her mother and her daughter, Annie attempts to communicate with her late daughter, sending her entire family into a spiral of distressing & horrifying events.
The Silence Of The Lambs - 1991
Probably the best psychological thriller of all time. FBI agent Clarice Starling seeks the help of Dr Hannibal Lecter, former psychiatric psychopathic serial killer, to help her find another serial killer.
American Psycho - 2002
Christian Bale plays Patrick Bateman, a creepy Wall Street businessman... who just so happens to be a serial killer. The movie moves back and forth between sarcastic humour and gruesome murder. Bale, as always, gives a flawless performance to sublimate Bret Easton Ellis’ controversial book.
A Quiet Place - 2018
Husband and wife John Krasinski and Emily Blunt play parents of a cute family that survives in an apocalyptic world where hideous monsters, very sensitive to noises, kill and eat people. Nonstop suspense for the entire 90 minute runtime.
Yet another horror movie including possesed tapes. Watch one, something will start to haunt and kill you. Ethan Hawke finds films in his attic and tries to find the truth behind them. Enough suspense and jump scares to keep you awake for way too long after watching it.
Insidious - 2011
Demons! If you're afraid of the devil or demons or ghosts or anything paranormal, this movie is perfect for you. The story is simple: parents try to rescue their son from the supernatural evil forces that have taken over him.
Mother! - 2017
A disturbing psychological thriller about a newly successful writer, played by Javier Bardam, who prioritizes his fans over his pregnant wife, played by Jennifer Lawrence. Creepiness and craziness, the movie will leave you with a “what just happened?!” feeling.
Happy Death Day - 2019
Being hungover is no fun: headaches, stomachaches, exhaustion… but imagine having to relive that same hangover every day. Pure nightmare. Now imagine having to go through this day everyday while being chased by a serial killer who will always get his way to you, and every time he kills you, you wake up to do it all over again.
Candyman - 1992
Old school but still effective. Even though a questionable remake is coming out, the 1992 version could probably still traumatize the current generation. The pitch is simple:
‘If you say his name five times while looking at the mirror, it appears in the reflection and kills you...’
This classic movie needs no introduction. Netflix has landed Alfred Hitchock’s most famous movie just in time for Halloween.
Hush - 2016
Some consider it the best horror movie of 2016. Jump scares and negatives spaces, this movie does the job. It takes place over the course of one night, when a deaf woman tries to escape a killer who broke into her house. Watch it alone in the dark - it will be even more effective.
Red Dragon - 2002
Prequel of the most terrifying thriller ever, The Silence of the Lambs, Red Dragon is less celebrated but just as good as the first movie of the saga. The movie follows Edward Norton’s character, an FBI agent who is tasked with meeting Dr Hannibal Lecter years after putting him in jail, to help him track down a serial killer. Yet another legendary performance
