As all passionate and in-the-know horror fans will attest to, it’s a task to catch the best new entries into their beloved genre. Aside from the disappointingly unsuccessful, though otherwise superb, The Cabin in the Woods, the year’s top scary movies have been relegated to extremely limited releases (meaning, folks outside of major cities like Los Angeles and New York were screwed) and/or Video On-Demand outlets that only certain cable providers offer. Recent horror knockouts like Kill List and The Loved Ones? Nope, far from easily accessible. And it’s too bad.
But there’s always that old online faithful known as Netflix, the Internet’s premier cinema hub that’s powered by a vast collection of instantly watchable films. And in the “Horror” section of Netflix’s instant streaming library, the assortment is top-notch. Frankly, trimming the numerous sub-categories down to the following list of The 25 Best Horror Movies Streaming On Netflix Right Now was quite the arduous mission, one that left several worthwhile films behind. You know what means, though? You’re about to experience nothing but terrifying, first-class virtuosity. Now have at it.
