111 Best Horror Movies on Netflix to Watch Right Now

Looking to score some Netflix and chills? The streaming service has enough horror movies to keep you trembling — there are more scary movies on Netflix than there are hours in a month!

Netflix’s current horror movie collection includes chilling originals (1922Gerald’s Game, Bird Box), recent critically acclaimed indie theatrical releases (The Witch), and horror classics (CarrieThe Sixth Sense). There are films from France, South Korea, and Mexico (among many other countries), and they range from comedic to supernatural to straight-up gore. The Tomatometer, too, ranges from an ultra-Rotten 0% to super-Fresh 100%, with plenty of Certified Fresh titles in between.

And hey — just because a Tomatometer score is low doesn’t mean we don’t love the heck out of the movie anyway.

This list has been updated to reflect Netflix’s offerings as of Mar. 31, 2020.
