15 Scary Netflix Movies Horror Fans Need To Watch Right Now
Created by Dan Auty on
There has never been a better time to be a horror movie fan, especially with a Netflix subscription. The streaming platform has so many new horror movies and shows just this month alone--whether you're looking for some lighthearted satanic worship in Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, deadly cult infiltration in Apostle, ghostly family drama in The Haunting of Hill House, or puzzling, bleak dread in Hold the Dark.
The sheer number of films available means that the biggest challenge viewers have is deciding what to watch--we've all spent way too much time scrolling through page after page of movies in search of the right thing. With so much content hitting services all the time, it's very easy to miss some great movies, and that's certainly true of horror films.
Netflix may be teeming with horror, but many of these movies arrive on the streaming service with little fanfare and no big stars, and it's easy to presume that most aren't worth a watch, since, let's face it, even the genre's biggest fan will admit that there is loads of terrible horror out there. But the fact is there are some outstanding recent horror movies currently available to stream right now. None of these films had a wide release and most are low budget, but they show that the genre has never been healthier or more diverse.
From ghost stories and monster movies to insane Asian shockers and disturbing Turkish gorefests, here are 15 of the best recent horror movies that you might have missed, all of which can be streamed right now on Netflix. Let's get scared!
