Netflix, of course, is the Internet’s premier cinema hub that’s powered by a vast but often uneven collection of instantly watchable films. For every The Piano Teacher, there's a Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead. The “Horror” section of Netflix’s instant streaming library, though, is surprisingly 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.
