We have selected the best horror movies currently on Netflix for you. Reason enough for us to comb through the not infinite, but sometimes inscrutable widths of Netflix for horror movies. These movies make any evening a scary pleasure.
28 Days Later
Two years before Snyder’s “Dawn of the Dead”, Boyle (Trainspotting) initiated a true renaissance of the zombie movie with this cult horror. Since 28 Days Later there are not only the slowly hobbling undead but also the fast-paced and much more terrifying zombies. The bicycle courier Jim (C Murphy) soon made the acquaintance of them after waking up after an accident in a hospital and wandering through an initially deserted London.
The Babysitter (2017)
Horror and humor also work without zombies: In this splatter from Netflix, twelve year old Cole’s wet dreams suddenly turn into a nightmare: everything starts well. The parents are out of the house. Cole is alone with his attractive babysitter Bee (S Weaving). But then he secretly sneaks out of his room to watch what the babysitter is up to when he should sleep. And suddenly the beautiful evening turns into a struggle for survival for Cole.
In a youth hostel in Bratislava, US backpackers Paxton (Jay Hernandez) and Josh (Derek Richardson) get caught up in a club of wealthy business people who torture and kill tourists for money in an old building. The bloody gore horror of “Saw” comes here in a much more everyday guise and therefore all the more frightening.
The Cabin In The Woods
The debut of Drew Goddard, who had previously written the screenplay for Cloverfield, quickly became a cult horror movie. Joss Whedon co-wrote the script. For five friends, the weekend trip to a lonely hut in the forest turns into a horror trip with an unexpected twist. Nerdy humor with moderate jump scares.
But now the fun is over: In Ritual a hiking excursion in northern Sweden turns into a horror trip for four long-time friends. After one of the four men gets injured, they decide to take a shortcut through a forest. Abbreviations are always fatal in a horror movie anyway, and then also through a gloomy forest. Big mistake! Once in the forest, of course, it’s too late. The British horror movie is not only worth seeing because of the conflicts that break out between the men, but above all because of the creative and gruesome monster creation.
