Netflix is a pretty amazing cultural phenomenon. What started out as a DVD-by-mail business almost 20 years ago has grown into a massive entertainment platform that is pretty hard to ignore if you're a member of modern-day society (because nobody wants to be the only person who isn't talking about Stranger Things, right?). And no matter what your cinematic preferences, there are inevitably some oddly specific Netflix movie recommendation categories that you'll enjoy. 

One of my friends used to describe having a Netflix account as "having a friend with the world's biggest movie collection and the world's worst taste in movies." Nowadays, though, there are a ton of high-quality movies and TV shows to enjoy on the site, some of which are Netflix exclusives. But there are still plenty of weird movies that you've never heard of (but might enjoy checking out), and Netflix's recommendation system brings them to the forefront. Are foreign sci-fi and fantasy movies your jam? Netflix has got you covered. Having a craving to watch some science and nature documentaries? Look no further than your computer screen. If you can dream it, you can stream it. So without further ado, here are some of the most on point Netflix movie recommendation categories ever.

Deep Sea Horror Movies

If you just can't get your fill of evil sharks, this category is for you.

Oddballs & Outcasts

I'm totally down to watch any of these comedies. Good job, Netflix.

Jazz And Easy Listening

Although the title would imply that Netflix is a radio station from the 1980s, this category actually contains some cool music documentaries like What Happened, Miss Simone?. 

Critically-Acclaimed Comedies From The 1980s


Yaasss. All about this.

Kids Faith And Spirituality

VeggieTales, though....

Satanic Stories

Some of these movies are great, but I just don't know if I want this category title in my browser history.

Comedies Starring Jerry Lewis

Netflix, don't tease me with a category if you're not going to follow through.

Creature Features

There is also the category Goofy Creature Features. Really.

Conspiracy TV Shows

I never would have thought of this title, but it's actually a pretty good way to sum up all of these mind-bending shows.

So even if you consider yourself picky when it comes to your taste in movies, there is definitely at least one recommendation category on Netflix that was made just for you.
