The Best Horror Movies on Netflix

[ 12 ] October 13, 2010 |

When I was a kid, I’d park myself in front of the TV every October and soak in every monster movie marathon and late night slasher flick that aired. My mom was convinced I’d grow up to be the second Unabomber, but little did she know I’d actually become a writer (though, if you ask her, there’s not much of a difference).

To celebrate what I consider to be the best month of the year, I’ve scoured Netflix for classic horror movies and recent hits alike. If you see something you like, just use our free Netflix coupons and start watching!

The Exorcist (1973)

This classic always makes the top 10 of any Best Horror Movie list, and for good reason. It’s legitimately terrifying. My co-worker Cristina can’t even talk about it. If you really want to freak yourself out, check out the deleted scenes on YouTube.

Scream (1996)

This was the first horror movie I ever watched (well, the first good one; the first one I actually saw was Leprechaun II), and it continues to be my favorite to this day. I still get a little antsy when I’m alone at night and the phone starts to ring…

Dawn of the Dead (2004)

Zombies! Horror purists will slay me for this, but I consider the 2004 remake to be superior to George Romero’s 1978 original. It’s thrilling, bloody and has great performances from Sarah Polley and (believe it or not) Modern Family’s Ty Burrell. A must-see Netflix horror movie.

The Strangers (2008)

Make sure you’re not home alone when watching this one. Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman star as a couple defending themselves against a trio of seriously deranged masked strangers. I learned one very important thing from this flick: look before you fire a shotgun.

Trick ‘r Treat (2008)

This collection of scary (yet funny) vignettes taking place on Halloween night is seriously one of the most unique horror movies you’ll ever see. Both hilarious and twisted, it truly feels like a kid’s movie that just happens to be rated R.

    The Descent is definitely on of my favorite horror flicks. If you’re even remotely clautrophobic, you will freak the eff out. Make sure you see the original cut, not the American cut, which ends all hunky dory.

    Oh! And watching The Strangers has shifted my desire to want to live in a little house in the country. I want neighbours close by so they can hear my blood curdling scream should a bunch of psychos choose to venture past MY white-picket fence.

    I used to love horror movies, but then I had to go and watch The Ring and I’ve never been the same since. Who knew televisions and mirrors could be so scary??
    But if I do ever get over my fear, I’ll be sure to check out some of your picks!

    I hate this. As scared as I am, I’m curious about the deleted scenes you’re talking about on You Tube. Why Andrew? Why?
