12 Creepy '90s Movies On Netflix, From ‘The Faculty’ To ‘Ghost’
It's now the beginning of spring, which means that we're just about as far from Halloween as can be. But if you're a fan of the spooky, horror never takes a day off. You know that there are still scares to be had even though the temperature is going up outside, and if you're anything like I am, then you also know there's nothing scarier than the things that frightened you as a child. Thankfully, there are a lot of creepy movies from the '90s on Netflix that should satisfy your need to be scared at the most joyous time of the year. So what kinds of movies am I talking about?
Well, there are some gory horror movies, some psychological thrillers, and some movies that you might not immediately think of as falling into the creepy category. There is even one movie whose backstory is arguably creepier than what's on screen. There are also a lot of masters of horror represented here, with efforts from the likes of Stephen King, Wes Craven, and Robert Rodriguez. And these are films from throughout the decade, so regardless of your age (provided that you're a millennial), you're likely to find some horrific memories here. So take a look at these 12 films, the creepiest '90s movies on Netflix.
1. The Crow
This dark superhero movie has a more disturbing tale behind the scenes: Star Brandon Lee was killed on set when he was accidentally shot with a prop gun.
2. The Faculty
Is it not every kid's worst nightmare that their teachers are evil aliens? No? Just me?
3. Stir of Echoes
After watching this supernatural thriller, you'll want more than just six degrees of separation from Kevin Bacon.
4. The Haunting
An overnight stay in a haunted house where not even Liam Neeson can save you? No thanks.
5. The Prophecy
The way Christopher Walken speaks is always a little spooky, but when he's playing an angel at the center of a heavenly civil war, the creep level definitely kicks up a notch.
Practically everybody wants to lose a couple pounds, but not like this.
7. Wes Craven’s New Nightmare
This meta horror film featuring Freddy Krueger will have you questioning what's real.
8. From Dusk Till Dawn
Although the movie is probably best known for Salma Hayek's bikini-clad snake dance, the vampires in this are pure nightmare fuel.
9. Leon: The Professional
A story about a 12-year-old Natalie Portman learning to become a vicious killer may not be a horror movie, but if that's not a disturbing concept than I don't know what is.
10. Scream 2
It may not be the original, but there's still plenty to be scared of in this slasher sequel.
11. The Relic
Being bored on a field trip would be the least of your worries at the museum from this creature feature.
"But this is one of the greatest love stories of all time!" you say. OK, sure, but just imagine if your loved one was killed and then started communicating to you through Whoopi Goldberg. That's got to be the creepiest thing of all time.
