The best thing about Netflix, and streaming services in general, has got to be the variety of viewing options they offer. Well, OK, the best thing is the convenience, but a close runner-up has got to be the variety. Whether you're looking for comedy, romance, or drama, Netflix always has something that suits your mood perfectly... even if your mood is to be scared out of your wits, which is why I've compiled a list of the most terrifying movies on Netflix.
Out of all the genres currently offered by Netflix, its horror library is arguably the strongest. There are some all-time classics here, as well as some of the scariest movies of the past few years — as well as a few under-the-radar wildcards that are truly horrifying. There's work here from horror legends like Stephen King, Wes Craven, and George A. Romero. The movies also deal with subjects ranging from supernatural spooks like ghosts, demons, and werewolves, to more down to Earth horrors like serial killers, demented scientists, and a seriously creepy dude from Craigslist; meaning that no matter what you're afraid of, something here will definitely scare you. So take a look below at the 17 most terrifying movies currently streaming on Netflix, and see if you can't find something that feeds your appetite for horror.
