Love Netflix? This Halloween I’m sure there will be a lot of horror movies streaming on that service. But which movies should you pick? With the thousands of films currently available on Netflix I thought it might be a good idea to put together a blog with some of the better films on offer. If you are looking for something scary, and delightful… check out this list!
With all the competition movies have in the horror genre—it takes a film like “The Babadook” to stand out. The Babadook is no ordinary horror movie. It tells the story of a mother struggling to control her young son who is plagued by visions of a monster he thinks is coming to kill them. He may be right. Genuinely terrifying.
Why does Hollywood have such an obsession with creepy kids? Every single time some young person finds themselves possessed we run behind the sofa. Insidious sees a couple fight supernatural forces when their son enters a comatose state, finding himself becoming the host for ghosts from an astral dimension. Whatever you do, don’t watch it alone. Seriously… Just don’t. If you’re alone this Halloween pick something else to view.
The Exorcism of Emily Rose
If you’re going to make a film about an exorcism, there’s a lot of competition. One of the greatest horror movies of all time was, afterall, about exorcism. This is a very creepy movie, based on a true story, that just takes the creepiness to the next level. “The Exorcism of Emily Rose” is well worth your time, and attention.
The Devil Inside
Over twenty years after a woman murdered three people, her daughter Isabella travels to a hospital for the criminally insane to work out if her mother is suffering from delusions or actual demonic possession. Unfortunately, it’s the latter and it isn’t long before she’s recruiting two exorcists to help her fight back for her mother’s soul. A seriously addictive horror movie.
A horror-comedy which rightfully takes its place on our list because it ignores everything it should do as a horror picture and carves its own identity. A movie that you will probably enjoy more each time you see it. You will see it twice. I can almost guarantee it.
