Six Worthy Horror Movies on Netflix

The Night Comes for Us - Netflix

by All Horror on May 22nd, 2019 | |

Like all TV and movie genres, Horror is subjective. While some prefer the epic slash and gore films, others graduate towards a more sinister and generally creepy vibe in their selections.

Classics such as The Exorcist, Halloween (1974), Nightmare on Elm Street all became box office hits and while cinemas currently tend to be overly packed with variations of Super Hero movies there is still plenty of horror to be had on Netflix.

In no particular order, here are a few that you may have missed but worth watching.

Clown (2014)

With plenty of gore and a decent body count, Clown is an utterly disturbing story about a perfect dad who decides to dress up as a Clown for his son’s birthday party.

But unable to take the cursed costume off, he instead goes on a murderous rampage with a taste for children.  A heady mix of being psychologically messed up with plenty of gore.

Bone Tomahawk (2015)

Featuring Kurt Russell, Bone Tomahawk is a mash up of western and horror – a genre with plenty of fans. Russell plays Sheriff Hunt who, along with a posse of cowboys must hunt down a tribe of Troglodytes.

These cave dwelling Troglodytes are a band of cannibalistic murderers whose savagery knows no bounds.

Bone Tomahawk is a disturbing, graphically gore-filled horror, which will inevitably become a cult classic.

Apostle (2018)

A movie that certainly divides opinion, Apostle stars Dan Stevens as Thomas Richardson, who has set out to rescue his sister from a cult on an isolated island.

With nods to the original ‘The Wicker Man’, Apostle straddles the line starting with a more thriller feel before heading into full on horror gore. Think ritualistic killings and drills to the brain.

The Night Comes For Us (2018)

While this technically may fall into the action category of movies, The Night Comes For Us is a non-stop fest of killings, brutal stabbings and violence.

While it lacks the sinister creepy element of traditional horrors, it certainly makes up for it with the unrelenting high quantity of blood spilled over the two hours running time.

Orphan (2009)

Orphan is a disturbing and frequently gruesome psychological horror about two recently bereaved parents who decide to adopt Esther, a nine-year-old Russian girl. Despite her initial pleasant and sunny demeanour, all is not right with Esther.

This is a dark twisted movie, peppered with some light relief and overall, fits nicely into the ‘scary’ category.

The Cabin In The Woods (2011)

If you love movies where idiots go down into the cellar when they should be running out the door, then The Cabin in The Woods is for you. But despite the stereotypical character types, and deliberate use of horror clichés, it is a brilliant blend of horror and comedy.

It is definitely a love-it-or-hate-it movie and horror purists may find it too satirical and less in keeping with the traditional genre. That said, it’s nothing if not original!

So there you have six solid horror movies, all of which are available to watch on Netflix. Depending on your preferred style, you will love some more than others but all, for their own reasons are well worth watching if you fancy a few scares.
