Netflix's latest film has a unique distinction: It's too scary to finish watching. OK, that's not 100 percent true, plenty of people have been able to brave the entire 106-minute runtime of Veronica, but a number of fans find themselves so terrified of the Spanish horror flick that they're shutting it off midway through; uninterested in seeing how it all plays out. The movie is garnering stellar reviews and has already been described by some as the scariest film ever made, but there are plenty of other movies currently streaming that are too scary to finish.
On the surface, Veronica doesn't seem like it'd be that scary. It's the story of a teenage girl who uses a Ouija board and ends up haunted by an evil demonic presence; a plot synopsis reads like a pretty generic horror movie checklist. Teenager? Check. Ouija board? Check. Demon? Check. The film even features a creepy nun, similar to the demon nun seen in The Conjuring 2. So what makes Veronica so scary?
For one, the movie is directed by Paco Plaza, who also helmed [REC], which is considered by many horror aficionados to be the best example of the found footage genre. So the film has some serious horror pedigree behind it. Veronica is also inspired by a true story, which is a surefire way to make a scary movie ten times scarier. In this case, the film was inspired by the mysterious unsolved death of a Spanish teen, whose health and mind deteriorated after using a Ouija board. Scary stuff, indeed.
But if you were one of the few who was brave enough to watch Veronica all the way through and live to tell the tale, then take a look at these other terrifying movies below that are currently streaming and see if you can manage to make it through them as well.
