There’s no better month to watch horror films than October, and Netflix has rounded up a big selection of them for you. So grab your significant other, a bowl of popcorn and a blanket to huddle under—then get ready for a good old fashioned Fright Night.
Here are the spooky films that Netflix will be showing this month:
“They Look Like People” (2015)
A fellow visits a friend in New York City and then starts getting phone calls that something really really bad is going to happen. MacLeod Andrews stars as a guy who thinks humanity “is being secretly taken over by evil creatures.” So when you get in your Uber ride in NYC, make sure you pay close attention to who is driving.
“The Amityville Horror” (2005)
Bad things happen to a family after they move into a big old creaky house that was the scene of a mass murder. Shouldn’t the real estate agent say something during your walk-through? “Oh, and by the way…”
“The Human Centipede” (2009)
Two young girls. Their car breaks down on a rainy night. They knock on a door for help. A demented surgeon answers the door. You see where this is going, right? (The trailer proclaims it to be “100% medically accurate.”)
“Would You Rather” (2013)
This is one dinner party you do not want to be invited to. “You must make a decision!” Eeek.
She cannot hear. She cannot speak. She is alone. Oh, wait. Make that “she is not alone.” And there’s the guy with the mask in the window. He’s not there to fix the plumbing.
“Scream 2” (1997)
Courteney Cox, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Neve Campbell and others in the sophomore installment of the hit franchise. Hello Giggles says “Like the original, but with more gore.”
“The Lazarus Effect” (2015)
A team of researchers brings a dead dog back to life. Then, since they didn’t learn from that mistake, they repeat the process on a member of the team who died in a lab accident. Let’s just say she’s not quite the girl she used to be.
“The Awakening” (2011)
In post-WWI England, there’s this haunted boarding school, see? And an author decides that maybe it’s not really haunted. Guess what? It really is. But you knew that.
“The Taking of Deborah Logan” (2014)
A film crew making a documentary about a woman with Alzheimer’s finds out that it’s actually a case of demonic possession. Oops.
“The Nightmare” (2015)
More than you ever wanted to know about something called “Sleep Paralysis.” Ever heard that expression about “things that go bump in the night?” Those things are in the movie. Welcome to the scariest place on earth… your bedroom. (I’d like to take credit for that last line, but it’s in the trailer.)
Here are some more scary “flix” to watch on Netflix this month:
“Queen Of The Damned” (2002)
“The Rite” (2011)
“The Unborn” (2009)
“The Silenced” (2015)
“The Vampire’s Coffin” (1958)
“The Exorcist” (1973)
