New Netflix Horror Movie Suggestions, Feb 2nd 2013

Herner Klenthur

Its time for yet another installment of Netflix Horror Movie suggestions. This is an ongoing and often weekly editorial where we give you suggestions of horror movies to checkout on Netflix. This week we have a whole slew of new suggestions for you to checkout.

So without further ado here are 12 horror movies that you should checkout on Netflix.

An American Crime

An American Crime is based on an appalling true story, this drama follows the grim fate of Sylvia Likens, a teenager who is left to live with Gertrude Baniszewski, a mentally unbalanced Indiana housewife who imprisons and tortures the girl in the basement.

The film stars Ellen Page who is one of my favorite actresses as well as James Franco and Katherine Keener. A very hard to stomach film about true crime and how children can be driven to commit the most horrendous crimes.

XOMBIE: Dead on Arrival.

I know a ton of our long time readers are huge fans of XOMBIE so this one is for you guys. I have not seen XOMBIE myself but it is definitely worth checking out if only to support James Farr and indie horror. If you have seen it sound off in the comments.

After a zombie plague destroys nearly all life on Earth, Dirge — a zombie variant who retains his conscious human mind — does his best to suppress his undead instincts so he can aid Zoe, a girl who has lost her family. The “Flash” cartoon, which originally premiered in a series of popular Webisodes, is collected here alongside other never-before-seen material. The compilation was produced by Oklahoma-based animation impresario James Farr.

Snow White  A Tale of Terror

Snow White A Tale of Terror is in a word fantastic! This Gothic retelling of the immortal fable stars a wickedly wonderful Sigourney Weaver as vain noblewoman Claudia Hoffman, who, threatened by the presence and beauty of her stepdaughter Lilly, tries to dispatch her rival by invoking the black arts.

Grudge 3

Toby Wilkins directed The Grudge 3 and up until now I have not seen it. I am putting it on the list because I think we should all check it out and give it a chance. Toby Wilkins is the genius behind SPLINTER and if there is even a glimmer of that talent showing up in Grudge 3 it should be fun…. or as fun as a threequel to a remake can be. I will be watching it this weekend, let me know if you do and share what you thought in the comments.

Exit Humanity

Exit Humanity has gotten great reviews from some of our writers and you our readers. I managed to get about 15minutes into it before getting bored and turning it off. I admit I was not feeling the best the day I did so based off all the positive comments it has gotten on site I am going to give it a second shot.

A decade after the Civil War, Edward Young returns home from a hunting trip to find that his son is missing and his wife has become a zombie. Edward sets out to find his son among the hordes of the walking dead and documents his story in a book.

The New Daughter

I actually own The New Daughter on DVD but have never watched it. As strange as that might sound I have thousands of movies and many I have not seen yet. This film makes the list because long time site contributor DirtyGirl told me last night its awesome.

Luis Berdejo directs this supernatural thriller centered on John James (Kevin Costner), who moves to the country to get a new start — only to be confronted by a new nightmare when his daughter, Louisa (Ivana Baquero), begins acting stranger by the minute. With unsettling events besetting the South Carolina home, John begins to believe that something on the edge of the forest nearby might have the answers he needs.

American Horror Story / Dexter

Depending on whether you are in the USA or Canada you will be able to watch DEXTER or American Horror Story. American Horror Story is on the American Netflix and DEXTER is on the Canadian Netflix. Although for me DEXTER is the better of the two shoes they are both great examples of genre television and worth checking out.

The Ward

Tim Hannigan who used to write for our site and from time to time contributes to our site to this day got the quote on the poster for John Carpenters The Ward. He really enjoyed it! That said many of our readers thought it was crap so I have been on the fence on seeing this one. It’s now on NETFLIX so it is on my watch list for the week as well.

Master of horror John Carpenter returns to form — and to the director’s chair — for this chilling thriller in which a young woman, Kristen (Amber Heard), is sent to a mental institution with a past as dark and haunted as her own. Terrorized by a ghost, each of the other patients in Kristen’s ward begin to disappear, and that’s just the beginning of her long nightmare. Jared Harris (“Mad Men”) and Danielle Panabaker (Friday the 13th) also star.


The InnKeepers made many of our teams Top 10 lists for 2012 and is billed as a truly terrifying ghost story. It stars genre favorite Sara Paxton and is directed by Ti West one of the few up and coming horror directors that has managed to show some serious talent through multiple films.

In this eerie ghost story, a venerable New England inn closes after a century in business, and the lodge’s two remaining employees are determined to uncover the truth about longtime rumors that the majestic mansion is haunted.

Grave Encounters

I hate found footage films. It is overdone and for me I have had enough and its gotten to the point where I avoid films on that basis alone. I know its narrow-minded but we all have our issues. Grave Encounters is an indie found footage style film that has gotten rave reviews from our community and some of our team. So I would suggest you might want to check it out.

In this horror flick, the stars of a paranormal-investigation TV show spend the night in a derelict psychiatric hospital, hoping to uncover what’s been going bump in the night. As their cameras roll, they find themselves trapped — and hunted.

Steve Niles REMAINS

Steve Niles Remains is basically The Walking Dead if it happened in VEGAS. I believe at one time they planned to make a series around the original graphic novel but unfortunately that seems to have come apart. It is a great zombie flick and one that I have watched 3 times since it landed on NETFLIX.

This horror flick set in a chilling postapocalyptic Reno, Nev., follows the survivors of a bizarre accident that reduced most of the world’s population to zombies. The group holes up in a vacant casino and fights a losing battle against the undead.

The Burrowers

The Burrowers came to mind after Lisa did a great editorial earlier in the week about the 10 best Civil War Era Horror Movies. The Burrowers people seem to either love, or hate but I for one love it.

When the men on a pioneer homestead are brutally murdered and the women and children go missing, a posse sets out to find them, assuming they’ve been abducted by Indians. But they soon discover that the truth is much more horrific.


Last but not least on my list is RAMMBOCK a german horror movie that is a complex love story wrapped up in a truly fantastic zombie story. When it comes to modern zombie movies Rammbock is definitely one of the best!

Hoping to reunite with his ex-girlfriend, a lovesick young man drops in to see her but instead finds a brash teen plumber — and before you can say “the undead,” the twosome must barricade the door against a legion of insatiable zombies.

Which of these movies have you seen and recommend? Which have you seen and think are not worth watching? Sound off in the comments.

        Have seen An American Crime it is a decent movie. Note this movie is based on the actual crime that inspired Jack Ketchum’s The Girl Next Door.

        The New Girl is an okay movie. It stars the young girl from Guillermo Del Toro’s Pan’s Labyrinth

        Have watched both season’s of American Horror Story and it has been uneven IMO

        The Innkeepers is good

        The Burrowers is also good

        Still have 2 movies to watch from the last list then I’ll start watching these. Looking forward to a new list next month.

        Dexter used to be on American Netflix, but I couldn’t get into it. Parts of the story felt like a joke, so stopped watching after season 1.

          Glad you like the series Bob. If you like ZOMBIES be sure to checkout Remains its pretty solid.

          Did you also hate American Werewolf in London? Evil Dead II? Every darkly funny horror movie ever made?

          Dexter is about a serial killer, but it’s exceedingly funny and clever that’s what makes it great. Any horror fan who can’t get into this series is really missing out. It’s the best horror there is on TV, by far.

        I always come to his site to see what to watch on Netflix. I have watched most of the ones on your list… The Innkeepers was excellent… I also hate found footage films, so I did not go near grave encounters 1 or 2. VHS 1 and 2 were ok, kinda scrambled and hard to follow but ok, especially for found footage. I have watched both Dexter and American Horror Story, both well worth watching. I am starting The Ward tight now. Keep up the excellent work!
