When it comes to horror or scary movies there are really 2 different kinds but below you will find both mixed as my criteria for being on the list is the “scare” feature. If you feel “it” while watching a movie then it does not matter whether it is a scary movie or a horror movie. It is important for you to understand that I never look for Oscar material when it comes to horror movies. I just look to see if it delivers some moments where the viewer might jump in the sofa. So without any further ado here are the best horror or scary movies.
The Exorcist: This is of course the best scary movie on Netflix as it is an unnerving masterpiece. Almost a guaranteed that you will sleep with the lights on if you are watching it just before bedtime.
Interview with the Vampire: Not exactly a movie that makes you jump but the performance by the cast is truly amazing as their performance made the unbelievable characters a reality.
Hannibal: The sequel to Silence of the Lambs. Hannibal is chased by his only surviving victim. Once again Anthony Hopkins shows his superb acting skills.
The Skeleton Key: What makes this one of the better scary movies is the acting as Kate Hudson and Peter Sarsgaard is a bit above the average cast in a horror movie. The story is not amazing but it does have some twists making it entertaining.
Jeepers Creepers: A pretty scary and creepy movie that gets better later in the movie. The CGI is pretty good making the pictures terrific and late to forget. A very entertaining movie whose script is cleverly written for a horror movie.
Paranormal Activity 2: Pretty much like number 1 so if you liked that movie then you should watch this one.
Psycho: Remake of the original one but as Netflix does not carry the original one we have to settle with this one.
Scream 2: The Sequel to the very popular Scream 1. This movie will guaranteed scare you more than once. Turn off the light and sit down and watch this one in the dark.
An American Haunting: Good acting making this scary movie ok for entertainment. Not the best scary movie out there but with limited good horror movies on Netflix Instant Watch it has to do.
Scream 3: This is one of those scary movies that uses tricks and effects to make it scary but if you are just looking for a scary movie and not a Oscar winning script then this is good enough. Not as scary as number 1 or 2 but it will still make you jump a couple of times.
