We all know the horror genre is limited on Netflix but there are certainly some gems here!
Check some Netflix horror movies and tell us which ones you wish Netflix will add in the future.
The Rite (2011)
Anthony Hopkins dared to do a different movie and the result is quite entertaining. One of the best exorcism movies with great acting, The Rite tells the story of a skeptical young deacon, Michael Kovak who studies exorcism at the Vatican. Unable to believe in the existence of God or the Devil, doubtful Kovak crosses paths with the unorthodox veteran exorcist, Father Lucas, who is in the middle of the challenging purification process of the possessed sixteen-year-old girl, Rosaria.
It is a compelling and atmospheric representation of an invisible but yet believable world. It is said that it saved the modern subgenre exorcist horror world!
For me, one of the best, realistic horror/ thriller movies out there! A story about a deaf and mute woman who retreated into the woods to live a solitary life must fight for her life in silence when a masked killer appears at her window.
I mean imagine being in her place in a big isolated house being stalked and threatened by a dangerous psycho creep! You get goosebumps when you see it with your own eyes.
Revolutionary idea to make a silent horror but it turned out to be chilly and with a great premise. You don’t have to scream or slash blood to be a great horror movie.
Watch the living proof!
Don’t Breathe (2016)
It is not ordinary for horror movies to have 30 million viewed trailers… Don’t breathe is an example to imitate and a gem for all kinds of horror. With less than 1h 30 min runtime the intimacy of the film is the main thing that makes it so fresh and interesting as a thriller. Hoping to walk away with a massive fortune, a trio of thieves break into the house of a blind man who isn’t as helpless as he seems. If it was taking place around a city or in a town it would not be half as suspenseful as having it all take place in a house.
Don’t Breath is a gem with a well-developed plot and a stellar cast. It is an absolute thrill ride, from the moment we enter this man’s house there is a tension that does not go away, it never becomes tiring. It holds you at the edge of your seat from the start, as we quickly gain support for these thieves as they get caught up in a bad situation. There might be some plot holes but it is one of its kind.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
People hate remakes. Freddy is back though to give us some scary chills with the specter of a disfigured man haunting the children of the parents who murdered him, stalking and killing them in their dreams.
The movie doesn’t start slow but instead builds up suspense. It just takes a flying leap into the very basis of the movie. Over half of the times Freddy comes on screen it happens by way of the old sharp music and jump tactic, which can be found cool at first but it soon got kind of old and annoying, to be honest. Two iconic elements from the first film were executed very poorly. Despite that, The Elm Street remake managed to actually be scary instead of just plain silly.
Finally a hardcore horror on Netflix. Hostel is sick, disturbing but definitely thrilling and well crafted. It served its purpose and showed the morality of our choices and the dark side of humanity.
When you hear 3 backpackers head to a Slovak city that promises to meet their hedonistic expectations what do you expect to get out of it? Hell! You get what you fokin deserve!!
Ignore the low rating. You got a big stomach? Do you want to see something else besides ghosts? Buckle up!
Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
Ok, I gotta give you something light. Here’s a classic, maybe a perfect classic Rosemary’s Baby. Watch out because it’s an old psychological horror with stunning directing and amazing performances.
A good scary movie must have more than the ability to merely scare, it must have the ability to haunt you in your own head. Rosemary’s baby is a movie where certain scenes become etched in memory. The story is about a young couple trying for a baby, who move into a fancy apartment surrounded by peculiar neighbors.
Not a usual script. Despite its age people, and critics deify it and claim that there aren’t any films that can so perfectly create this kind of a chilling atmosphere that keeps your skin tingling from start to finish. I guess sometimes you have to go old-school…
World War Z (2013)
We’ll close with a classic action/ adventure horror starring Brad Pitt. World War Z is going to be a flick of horror zombie movies. One of the best executions of the idea of a family surviving an apocalypse. During our times, a zombie pandemic isn’t that far eh? Hahaha!
Despite its standard simple scenario, this movie is pure entertainment and it is on way to a sequel. Nice mobility from Brad Pitt and amazing directing from Marc Forster.
I am a lifetime movie addict and cinema is my passion. I’ve been a movie writer for 8 years. My goal is to teach people how to watch movies and how to appreciate them instead of hating them. Some gems are hidden out there but I’m here to show you them all!
