As a modern-day entertainment option, Netflix is one of the most popular. The on-demand streaming service has gone from strength to strength since its initial launch in 1997, offering its community of viewers with some of the top movies, television shows and documentaries from around the world. One genre which has a strong selection to choose from is horror, with Netflix offering an extensive array of spooky treats for fans who are chasing that scare factor.
Horror has an abundance of sub-genres too, all of which are catered for on the most popular streaming platform around. From paranormal entities to zombie chaos and slashers, some hugely appealing productions are now easily accessible via the platform and present viewers with the ideal horror-filled night in. Let’s take a look at five of the best options available to stream on Netflix right now.
Compared to many of the good old-fashioned slasher movies from the past, Hush features the terror and gore fans of the genre so desperately crave. Directed by Mike Flanagan, the movie focuses on the story of a deaf author who is seeking a quieter life of solitude away from the madness of city living. As a result, she sets up base in a secluded wooded area as she attempts to live out the rest of her days in a peaceful setting. From there, though, things start to go wrong as she most definitely isn’t alone.
A supernatural horror movie, directed by Paco Plaza and shot in Vallecas (Madrid) through production services in Spain, which received plenty of plaudits when it was released in 2017, Verónica is an incredibly scary movie which is capable of striking fear into even the most avid of horror movie fans. Involving a Ouija board – which is never usually a good sign – the story takes place during a solar eclipse as a teenage girl and her close friends attempt to summon the spirit of the girl’s father via the aforementioned Ouija board. Unsurprisingly, it doesn’t quite go to plan.
Army of the Dead
If you’ve sampled series such as The Walking Dead and its feast of zombie action, then you’ll probably take to Army of the Dead. Set in Las Vegas, the home of gambling which offers real-life versions of the types of online casino games available at UK best casinos, the movie follows former mercenary Scott Ward (Dave Bautista) as he attempts to assemble the ultimate squad in a mission to steal a cash bounty from the vault of one of Vegas’ top casinos. Their task is made all the more difficult given the fact that the city has been abandoned by the living, with the undead offering a serious threat wherever they go.
Released in 2013, The Conjuring is an American supernatural horror film directed by James Wan with plenty to offer in terms of ghost-themed terror. Regarded as one of the better modern horrors we’ve been treated to, the movie follows the alleged true story of Ed and Lorraine Warren, two paranormal investigators who have managed to establish a solid reputation for themselves. James Wan is the main man in the horror genre for many people and it certainly does his image no harm in this particular creation.
A movie which perhaps deserves more attention than it gets, Cam is a 2018 masterpiece which centers on the story of a cam girl who is left feeling distressed when her invaluable account is compromised by a look-a-like in what is an eerie and odd production. As she attempts to find out who the person is and how exactly she can retrieve her stolen account, the movie takes a number of disturbing twists and turns.
