Netflix's Best Horror Films

Netflix's Best Horror Films ...

The Rental is expected to have its own license at the beginning of this month, although it does not make this list, so it's worth a look. Other notable features include Black comedy horror The Trip (2021), psychological thriller Coming Home in the Dark (2021), Mike Flanagan's Hush (2016), the Fear Street Trilogy (2021), and supernatural Western The Wind (2018). Veronica is a Spanish supernatural horror film set in the studio.

Scroll down for the best horror movies currently on Netflix that include 70 or higher Metacritic scores. Note that some of them are particularly dark and should be addressed with long caution.

Under The Shadow (2016)

Under The Shadow, a remarkable psychological horror novel, has doubled as an allegory for larger social themes, such as oppression. Set in Tehran in the 1980s, after a series of air raids known as the War of the Cities, it follows a mother and daughter as they await them for help. With the echoes of The Babadook as well as its own own fresh ideas, Under The Shadow is an excellent horror novel.

1922 (2017)

This horror drama based on the novella 1922 is a slow-burn with a mesmerizing performance at its core. Thomas Jane, who you'll also know from Boogie Nights and 2004's The Punisher, gives one of his career finest performances as the ever proud Wilfred James, a farmer who makes the absolutely wise decision to murder his wife with the help of their teenage son. The consequences are harrowing on multiple levels (if you don't like rats after this).

Cam (2018)

This smart psychological horror is partially based on Isa Mazzei's experience as a camgirl (or webcam model) but there isn't yet a documentary, following Alice Ackerman, a young camgirl who one day discovers an exact replica of herself has taken over her show. This unique thriller, flashing red with the threat of technology, is a must-have feature.

The Bronx vs. Vampires (2020)

In more ways than one, Vampires vs. the Bronx is a unique comedy-horror. Set in the New York area, Miguel Martinez, a big-hearted kid, is raising money for his local bodega. But some new designer clothing stores are threatening to move in. Vampires vs. the Bronx is a fresh, entertaining twist on the genre.

Calibre (2018)

This gruesome thriller set in the Scottish Highlands is far from an idyllic getaway. Prepare for a full-on nerve-wringing nightmare that their protagonists are eager to wake up from. Vaughn and Marcus embark on a weekend hunting trip, but after a night of drinking, they discover themselves faced with difficult events. Calibre is delivering a slick package of grim, gripping drama. Let the full force of this one sink you.

It Follows (2014)

The inventive horror film that still doubles as an allegory for STDs. It Follows trains its lens on a supernatural entity that lives in the periphery, constantly pursuing its prey at a slow, zombie-like pace. Our heroine Jay (played by modern Scream Queen Maika Monroe) is trapped at the center of this anxiety pool, facing a terrifying stalker. A modern classic, with a cracking John Carpenter-inspired original score.

Berlin Syndrome (2017)

Cate Shortland, who plays Clare Havel in excellent indie films, never met a cat-and-mouse relationship in his apartment. While the film is slower at times in its confined setting, The Berlin Syndrome is assuredly delivering a gripping thriller.

Raw (2016)

Julia Ducournau, a vegetarian in her first year of veterinary school, is filmed containing raw meat and a severe rash over her body. The film combines identity in a viscerally powerful and symbolic way, and is a must-see from Netflix's indie bench.

His House (2020)

A horror that strikes... close to home. Explanation of its supernatural shortcomings through a spooky human tale, His House follows Bol and Rial, a refugee couple from Sudan, who struggle to adapt to their new life in an English town. Don't expect straightforward jump scares -- His House plays into the past's psychological specters, adding even further corridors of torment. A heartbreaking, powerful piece.

The Exorcist (1973)

Haven't seen what's widely regarded as the best horror film of all time? 1973's The Exorcist features Ellen Burstyn as Chris MacNeil, a well-off actress who grows into a deity, and who they will call? A couple of Catholic priests to conduct an exorcism. The Exorcist was so good it became the first horror film to be nominated for the Best Picture Oscar.

Platform (2019)

The Platform, which is based on a platform that delivers food to people on every of its many levels, is devoured as the platform lowers down levels. This dystopian thriller takes incredibly painful, sometimes grumbling turns from the start.

The Nightingale (2018)

A warning: The Nightingale depicts extreme graphic scenes of violence and rape. This harrowing story will be explored, with a few minor details on the screen. Jennifer Kent, who directed the famous The Babadook, is a force to be reckoned with.

Creep (2010)

If you're looking for further proof the Duplass brothers are actually evil, here's an easy sell. Patrick Brice (also the director and co-writer) appears on a Craigslist page for Josef (Mark Duplass), who wants to film his supposed unborn child. I often enjoy horror films that are extremely difficult to unnerve, because they're very difficult to pull off. And I've got to give him Mark Duplass. He's absolutely crazy.

Gerald's Game (2017)

Mike Flanagan brought us this deft adaptation of Gerald's Game, based on Stephen King. Jessie, a woman who goes on holiday with her husband at an isolated lake house in Alabama, is immense. It becomes a matter of survival and escape, as a result of Flanagan's melancholy-suffused horror.

(2020) Call

The Call, a South Korean adventure that revolving around, and a phone call, is found in a closet in her childhood home. It's a mystery, and the caller, it turns out, is living in the same house 20 years earlier. It's a must-watch as well as a wild cat-and-mouse chase that alters the past and present.

Marvel, Netflix, DC, and other Marvel movies will release in 2022.
