Now on Netflix Streaming – Horror – Fall 2014 edition
I haven’t done one of these in a long time. I usually try to warn my readers of what not to watch on Netflix, but this time I’m going to list flicks available on Netflix Streaming that would be good choices for fall and winter viewing.
25 Horror Flicks on Netflix Streaming to watch over the winter
In no particular order:
Stake Land (2010)
I resisted watching this for a long time. Finally watched it and it’s a good damn flick!
Event Horizon (1997)
A space ship with a machine to open a portal to another dimension releases the horrors of hell.
Hellbound: Hellraiser II (1988)
An even gorier follow-up to Clive Barker’s Hellraiser. The Doctor is in!
Fright Night (1985)
The original campy vampire flick that oozes personality and charm. Should have never been remade.
Tony Todd’s voice will mesmerize you in this horror/psychological thriller from the mind of Clive Barker.
Fantastically gory Gordon/Yuzna adaptation of HP Lovecraft’s story will have you laughing in between spectacular ‘road kill’ moments.
Dead Silence (2007)
Creepy puppets in this fine James Wan horror film.
Brain Dead (1990)
Psychological horror flick takes you into the mind of a madman/genius.
Evil Dead 2 (1987)
Sam Raimi’s tongue-in-cheek sequel will get your blood pumping…all over the floor, walls, ceiling, face, etc.
House on Haunted Hill (1959)
Dated but a good story worth watching to this day. Creepy ol’ lady, walking skeletons, ghostly shrieks in the night…the perfect old time creepy film.
The Fly (1958)
The epitome of 1950’s sci-fi/horror. A scientific experiment goes awry and creates a half-man/half fly. Awesome giant fly head effect and disturbing ending.
Night of the Living Dead (1968)
George Romero classic zombie flick that changed the essence of zombie movies, books, and television shows forever.
The Dunwich Horror (1970)
Psychedelic adaptation of HP Lovecraft’s story of the same name. Dated feel and a little slow but worth a watch for the Lovecraft fan.
Vincent Price and Peter Cushing make this Amicus Film worth viewing. When a struggling actor tries to resurrect his career, everyone around him begins to get murdered, seemingly by the horror character he plays.
Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978)
A remake worth watching, noted for it’s great creepy music and sound construction. Wonderful characters, great acting.
The Legend of Hell House (1973)
Rody McDowell leads a group of ghost hunters into an abandoned mansion in this Richard Matheson classic ghost story film.
The Crow (1994)
A dark and iconic comic book adaptation makes for a wonderful modern gothic film.
Apartment 143 (2011)
Well made Found Footage film about a ghost haunting in an apartment.
Dead End (2003)
Odd-ball low budget flick about a family lost on a haunted country road. This dysfunctional family generates some comical dialogue on their way to Grandma’s for the Holiday.
Satan’s Little Helper (2004)
Another strange low-budget flick about a serial killer that befriends a young boy on Halloween. A weird tale, not for everyone.
Darkness Falls (2003)
A witch-like ghost torments residents of a small town by masquerading under the Tooth Fairy legend.
The Stand (1994)
Decent yet dated mini series adaptation of Stephen King’s apocalyptic novel about a devastating viral outbreak.
From Dusk ‘til Dawn (1996)
While most remember Selma Hayek’s wonderful snake-dance and Quentin Tarantino’s bizarre dialogue, it’s easy to forget that this is a fun campy vampire flick with great old-school effects by Tom Savini. Directed by Robert Rodriguez.
