We have an on going series where we share with you all movies on NETFLIX that are worth watching. The titles listed below are all on the Netflix on demand service and worth checking out for a variety of reasons.
One of the strange issues I ran into while doing this article is that many of these titles did not show up when I searched Netflix I found them by scrolling through the ‘Horror Genre’ on Netflix. So if you dont find these titles look through the genre page and you will find them all easily enough.
Resident Evil Afterlife
If you are a fan of the Resident Evil film franchise you can not go wrong with the latest film in the series. The franchise has gotten weaker and weaker with each film as it focuses more heavily on 3D and splashy CGI but if you like me are a huge fan of the first one and couldn’t be bothered to see it in theaters it wont get much better then free on Netflix on Demand.
Shaun of the Dead
Shaun of the Dead is one of the funniest horror movies of all time and I should hope that every single one of our readers has seen this movie. If for whatever reason you have not you should stop reading right now and go flick on Netflix and watch it instantly. The only movie that was funnier is the original Army of Darkness and the new Dale and Tucker vs Evil.
The Snow Town murders
The first two films I listed are pretty light fare but the Snowtown Murders is most certainly not. Based on a true story of a serial killer it is an incredibly brutal story that is on par with Red White and Blue with how brutal it is. Snowtown murders is a very artistic film which is also incredibly brutal.
I am a big fan of religious horror and where alot of people despised The Rite I found it quite entertaining. I had no intentions of paying money to see this in theaters but out of curiosity I did watch it once it hit NETFLIX. Found Footage films have become the new Hollywood trend but I must confess that the Devil Inside is a pretty strong showing and worth checking out.
Ghosts of Mars
Ghosts of Mars is in a word epic! This is by far my favorite John Carpenter film after The Thing and I just can not help myself. It is everything that movies like Cowboys vs Aliens wishes it could be. Starring Ice Cube and Natasha Henstridge its the story of a group of criminals who team up with the local authorities to fight off an infection that gives you much more then a runny nose.
30 days of Night Dark Days
Steve Niles 30 Days of Night is one of the best vampire movies ever made. I had very low hopes for the sequel especially considering the female lead was recast and no key players were returning. Diora Baird takes over the lead role as she heads to the big city to educate people on the vampires that wiped out the arctic village she came from. Although not as good as the original this is well worth checking out on Netflix. A very polished vampire movie with just enough of the glory of the original to keep you entertained.
Human Centipede 2
Yep after all my babbling about I will never watch Human Centipede 2 I did. I watched it for the same reason I am sure many others did to see what it was all about. I would encourage you to watch it for the curiosity factor but you can probably guess that the Human Centipede 2 movie is a mish mash of gore, carnage and perversion. Human Centipede 2 is messed up.
Alex Turners Dead Birds was just featured in our editorial of the 20 best indie horror movies so it should be obvious we would suggest you check it out on Netflix. Dead Birds is a horror period piece about a group of criminals who hide out in an abandoned house to discover that what lurks within is far more dangerous then they are. Great casting and excellent production values shine in this great indie production.
This one is actually a suggestion from DirtyGirl one of my friends who blogs on the site. I will be watching this movie as soon as I am done this blog post. Midnight Son is directed by Scott Leberecht and is the story of a teen with a rare skin condition that forces him to live a perverse lifestyle of lurking in the dark and drinking blood who meets a new friend and quickly discovers dark gifts.
I love a good zombie movie and Dead Season definitely fits the bill. I am not sure if director Adam Deyoe was inspired by George Romero or not but this strikes me as a quasi sequel to Romero’s Day of the Dead as a group of survivors escapes a zombie infested city to a remote island. It offers a unique concept with a strong but small cast of characters and a well thought out script.
So there you have it 10 horror movies on Netflix on Demand worth watching. Until next time.
