What’s better than enjoying a late-night fright from the comfort of your own living room? All horror movie enthusiasts know that there’s a lot of garbage out there when it comes to the thriller genre. That being said, most of us know that we must sift through the trash to find those hidden gems. Lucky for you, we’ve saved you some time and energy and gone through Netflix to put together a list of must-see horror films.
Those who haven’t heard of the smash-hit Netflix Original, “Bird Box,” may as well have been living under a rock for the past couple of years. Award-winning actress Sandra Bullock plays a woman who survives the apocalypse, which begins when people start to see something and, in turn, lose their minds. “Bird Box” has become one of Netflix’s most-streamed movies, and for a good reason!
The Blackcoat’s Daughter
Anthony Perkins directed this excellent, disturbing film starring Kiernan Shipka, Emma Roberts, and Lucy Boynton. Shipka and Boynton play two girls that were left at their boarding school during winter break. Things gradually start going wrong on a supernatural level, and the two are sucked into their worst nightmare. Meanwhile, Roberts has her own plotline, working her way to the school. The two arcs meet in a memorable final act.
As Above, So Below
The 2014 horror film, which was written and directed by John Erick Dowdle, is presented as a found footage of a documentary crew’s experience as they explore the Catacombs of Paris. Though critics gave the film mixed reviews, we think it deserved a better fate.
“Cargo” stars Martin Freeman as a man who has just lost his wife to disease and who is also staring down his own violent fate. He has 48 hours before he turns into one of the walking dead roaming Australia, the same pressing time in which he must find a suitable safe refuge for his baby daughter.
The Girl with All the Gifts
This is the best zombie movie you have probably never heard of. We’re glad to be the ones to let you in on this masterpiece. The less you know about this movie, the better; trust us when we say it’s worth the watch!
