There are some movies that just shouldn't be watched before bed. These films are so scary, so disturbing, and so unsettling that if you watch them right before turning in, you'll end up unable to fall asleep. Your mind will race, your heart will pound, you'll see threats in the shadows, and every creak you hear will set you on edge. In other words, watching these types of movies before going to sleep is a big mistake. So as a warning, I've compiled a list of 32 horrifying Netflix movies you should never watch before bed.
The films on the list are quite diverse, but they all have one thing in common: they will keep you up all night. Some of them are classic horror movies dealing with supernatural entities, hauntings, killers, and other terrifying threats that are looking to invade your bedroom. There are also a number of spooky documentaries on the list; docs that deal with true crime stories, horrifying medical conditions, and kidnappings. And since these are all real things that happened, they can't be shrugged off with the old standby of "it's just a movie," possibly making them even scarier than the horror films. But whether you're more scared of creepy docs or traditional horror movies, I guarantee you'll find something below that will keep you up all night if you watch it before bed.
