There’s nothing better than watching a decent horror movie. A horror movie that forces you to sleep with the light on after watching it. A horror movie that latches onto your deepest, primal fears, pokes and prods at your psyche, strangles you with fear and raises your heart rate to palpitation levels. These types of horror movies are rare, and that is what makes them so special.
The following is a hand-picked list of the best horror movies on Netflix you should – no, need to – watch over Halloween that are available on the service in the UK. They are the titles on Netflix that will induce fear but as you will see, fear takes different forms. Sometimes it’s foreboding, sometimes it’s mixed with comedy, other times it’s bloody and brutal.
And then there’s that other fear: the fear that you have missed off some damn good movies from a list. If that’s the case, then let us know in the comments below.
