4 of the Best Horror Movies on Netflix: Queue 'Em Up For Halloween!

It's October and you know what that means; it's Halloween season and what is sad is that you have to go out of your way to find the good horror films on Netflix. But here are four that I rather enjoyed.

Jaws

This is one of those films that literally everyone should see. It is a near perfect film. It's the perfect mix of Horror, Drama, and Adventure. It really is just a truly amazing film and Chief Brody is one of the Greatest Horror Movie Heroes.

Let Us Prey

This is a very remarkable film. I don't want to reveal any more than bad people get what's coming to them.

The Babadook

This is a very old-school horror film. It doesn't rely on blood and guts. It's honestly very good and definitely worth watching. Though it's more about getting over grief than anything else, it's still absolutely terrifying at times though its definitely not for anyone with a phobia of insects.

Hush

This is one of those films that is utterly perfect in its execution. This is a home invasion slasher film about a deaf-mute woman. A year ago If you had told me one of the best horror films ever made would be a slasher film made for $70,000 and released straight to Netflix, I'd have told you that you were smoking crack. But that doesn't change the fact that it IS one of the best horrors ever made.

I firmly believe that along with the original Halloween and Jaws this is another Horror film that everyone should see before making a horror film.

    I recommend:

    www.freedvdcover.com/.../....getdvdcovers.com_.jpg

    Carrie, in which an abused/bullied/tormented social outcast's first period, for which she is shamed and humiliated both at school and home, brings with it superpowers to eventually overcome her tormentors and abusers, by setting the entire town on fire.

    Stephen King said in his book Danse Macabre that Carrie is "largely about how women find their own channels of power and what men fear about women and women's sexuality... which is to say, writing the book in 1973, I knew fully what Womens Liberation implied for me and others of my sex... The book is... an uneasy masculine shrinking from a future of female equality... [Carrie] is Woman, feeling her powers for the first time and, like Samson, tearing the temple down on everyone in sight... and destroying the whole rotten society."

    The poor girl is so beaten, broken, and abused; most people love to see her get her revenge.

    Jaws - boring. Babadook - weird and boring, though it has an interesting meaning.
    Hush is an awesome film, I recommend everyone watches it.
    Let Us Prey looks interesting.

    Watch some Saw films on Netflix!

    I've seen all but the second one.
    Jaws - more of a Summer movie for me - for obvious reasons. xD
    The others - pretty boring to me, but hey... people who get easily startled or are not that familiar with the horror genre will surely love them.

    I propose The Conjuring 1 and 2, Halloween (all of them), Suspiria, The Exorcist.

      my high school psychologist is in Jaws,
      He was on Martha's Vinyard when it was being film and spielberg came up and said to everyone on the beach, "Anyone want to be in a movie, if so, when I say just run out of the water."
      That scene where everyone is running out of the water."
      My high school psychologist is one of the little kids running out of the water

    I have only watched one horror movie in my entire life which was the grudge. My aunty made me stay up until 3am to watch it when I was 6. Never forgotten it since then.

    I'm not able to watch any of those movies. I would spend a week or a month without sleeping Lol
    But they seem good for someone who's actually able to watch them.

    Jaws is truly one of the best films I've ever watched, and I really don't like older movies. No matter how many times I've seen it, if I'm flipping through channels and it's on, the flipping ends! I'll have to check out the other 3, somehow I've missed them, thank you!!!

      Fun fact,
      My high school psychologist is in jaws.
      He was vacationing in marthas vinyard and that scene where everyone is running out of the water he is in that.
      Spielberg came up to people on the beach and asked if everyone wanted to be in a movie, when people said yes, he said, when I say, everyone just run out of the water.
      He was like five or so

    Dead silence was really good but I'm not sure if they still have it...
    I vary much so have a love/hate relationship with horror movies... so I might or might not watch these.

      Jaws, the Perfect mix of Horror, Adventure, and Drama.
      Easily one of the hundred greatest movies ever made

    • 2mo

    Insidious, though the latter half is hit or miss, the first half has its scary moments. You can do without Insidious 2, though 3 has some good moments too.

    The Others is pretty good as well, and lastly I'd probably recommend Let Me In.

    Of the ones you mentioned, Jaws is definitely a classic but so is Alien. The first Alien film is one of the greatest sci-fi horror of all time, very different from the rest which are more action sci-fi films.
    The Babadook was a bore to me, tbh. I saw it because it has some very rave reviews, but I was disappointed all in all.

    Haven't seen Hush or Let Us Prey.

    I don't know if it's on Netflix and I really don't watch horror movies, but I actually liked The Descent. Mainly because of the psychological angle, I guess.

    I haven't seen these except for jaws but I'll give em a shot.

    Though I will add that the new horror movie about that blind guy looks promising

    You know what would be the best horror film ever though?

    Either this

    HELL NO
    https://youtu.be/olEbwhWDYwM

    Or obviously At the Mountain of Madness if it was a real movie :( because let's be honest few do horror like Lovecraft his stuff is really disturbing regarding cthulhu.

    The Babadook was alright, so was Hush. Jaws is a classic. I still need to see the other one.

    The Taking of Deborah Logan wasn't bad. V/H/S had like one or two decent pieces, there was a twist in one of the stories I wasn't expecting.

      Not even Jaws, its not just a horror film,
      Its an Adventure film and a Drama

    • 2mo

      That's horror? I wasn't scared at all. I always assumed it was just action.

  • 2mo

    Jaws is a movie I saw but I'm not at all a horror guy.
    I'm more into realistic movies, for example those based on true facts.
    Favourite movie: Apollo 13.

    Jaws is the classic one here. The only one I recognize the most since I had seen it when I was a kid.

    I think I'm going to check out The Babadook since it's more psychological than the overused gory effects in various horror films, in particular the "slasher" subgenre of horror films.

    Being in a relationship is enough of a horror movie

    I think The babadook can be a hit or miss. Personally I found it to just be plain bad and not scary in the slightest, even made my girlfriend laugh cause of how not scary it was. But not gonna spoil anything here why I think it was bad and really not scary, just fair warning instead, maybe people would enjoy it more if yeah didn't have any expecations like that.

    Did like Hush though, thought that one was alright, not sure I would call it horror really, but probably is in the horror category anyway. Would at least recommend that one yes.

    And haven't seen Let us Pret so gonna check that one out.
