TOP 10 HORROR FILMS ON NETFLIX
(That Eddie has seen)
10. Child's Play (1988)
Yeah, this film seriously scared every one of you kids growing up. Be honest. Relive your childhood terrors of that one doll in your room that could easily carry a knife between them plastic fingers.
|Chucky: Taking out more kids than those recalled McDonald's PokeBalls|
Not terrifying but an entertaining collection of stories by the legendary George Romero. Plus, Leslie Nielsen's in it as a creepy dude who likes to bury people in the sand up to their neck. Awesome.
8. Paranormal Activity 1 (2007) & 2 (2010)
I'm not the biggest fan of the acting in these films, but the rhythm definitely does a terrific job of making you remain on the edge of your seat for every scene. Plus, I like it better than all those Japanese rip-offs Hollywood's been spitting out.
7. Halloween H20 (1998)
Not the best Halloween, but it's the best Netflix has to offer. Quench your Michael Myers thirst here and then turn on the television because I'm pretty sure AMC is replaying most of those films all month.
6. Trick 'r Treat (2008)
I finally watched this one a few weeks ago and loved it. It's a decent tribute to "Creepshow" with the storytelling, but this goes one step further by tying everything together. Oh, and did I mention how great the writing is?
5. Let Me In (2010)
Not as scary as some of the other films in the Top 10 but I added it just because it was such a well done film. I wasn't losing sleep after watching this one, but it might have different effects on the more easily scared individuals out there.
4. The Exorcist (1973)
I've always thought of this film as a little overrated in the horror department, but it is in all ways a classic. It scared the dickens out of me when I was a kid and it'll always be known as one of the most influential horror movies of all time.
|90% of you after this weekend. 3 Bags of candy + alcohol sounds better than it looks.|
CLASSIC in every sense of the word. Romero's ancient film that brought the zombie concept to the masses. It was released way back in 1968, yet still we are obsessed with zombies today. And George keeps on kickin' out zombie movies for his people. Good man.
2. The Thing (1982)
Absolutely love this film. So suspenseful yet holds back just to be a dick. Just to keep you on your toes. Plus, they're remaking this one so might as well familiarize yourself with the original before they dirty up the place. Wait, the original was a remake of another film? ... huh?
1. The Evil Dead (1981)
Doesn't get any better than this. If you haven't watched it yet, then boot up Netflix right now. And if you don't have Netflix, then download it because I'm declaring this as required watching for everyone who needs a little more chill in their life. If you can find Evil Dead II, then follow it up with that as well because you'll need it.
And guess what? My Instant Queue on Netflix has filled up with random horror films that I've been meaning to watch for years. So here's 12 more films that you might want to check up on just because I've been too busy to indulge myself:
The Fly (1986)
The Return of the Living Dead (1985)
The Lost Boys (1987)
House on Haunted Hill (1959)
Session 9 (2001)
Poltergeist II (1986)
The Howling (1981)
The Last House on the Left (1972)
Killer Klowns from Outer Space (1988)

Well your mama kept you but your daddy left you
And I should’ve done you just the same
But I came to love you
Any old time you keep me waiting
