If you are one of those people who enjoys strong emotions and who doesn’t mind a quick nap at night, here is a list of horror movies that you can find on Netflix and which are definitely only for the bravest.
Directed by Remi Weekes, ‘His House’ is one of the best horror films of 2020. The story is about two South Sudanese refugees who flee to England to have a chance at a better life.
As they try to get used to their new home, they discover that something supernatural from their homeland has followed them to Europe. In ‘His House’ the terror is caused not only by paranormal entities, but also by the xenophobia of the locals and strong feelings such as guilt, pain and abandonment.
The ‘Way of Fear’ Trilogy
Based on the popular book series of the same name and written by RL Stine (the same author of ‘Goosebumps’), the ‘Fear Street’ trilogy tells one story, which takes place over 300 years in a small town in the United States. called Shadyside.
In that place, gruesome murders occur from time to time in such inexplicable ways that most of them go unpunished. Each footage takes place in a different time period, but in all of them, the protagonist’s goal is very clear: find the identity of the wizard Shadyside before he finds them and kills them all.
Director David Blue García brings a remake honoring Tobe Hooper’s original by focusing more on primitive fears than the supernatural, with Leatherface being more aggressive and predatory.
Jessica Biel completes this horror story with a spectacular performance, as she makes the audience feel her fear and desperation to escape from a psychopath and save her life.
The footage is reminiscent of ‘The Wicker Man’ from 1973, because in a similar way to the story, ‘Apostle’ follows Thomas Richardson, a man who follows in his sister’s footsteps to a mysterious island.
The girl has been kidnapped by a dangerous religious sect, who demands a ransom for her. When Thomas enters the heart of the island, he finds that something very dark and disturbing is going on there, in which he must fight to save his sister and his own life.
For a time, it was thought that this Stephen King saga was unlikely to be adapted into a series or film, until Mike Flanagan came along and proved otherwise.
The director of ‘The Haunting of Hill House’, ‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’, ‘Hush’ and ‘Doctor Sleep’ successfully handled the story of ‘Gerald’s Game’, to reveal all its frightening potential.
The film tells the story of Jessie and Gerald, a married couple who travel to a cabin in the middle of the woods to get a second chance at their relationship.
There Gerald proposed to his partner to handcuff him to the bed, something he accepted. Everything seems to be going well until the man dies of a heart attack, so from then on the fight for Jessie’s survival begins.
Netflix is famous, among other things, bringing horror films and series from around the world to Western audiences. This is the case of ‘May the Devil Take You’, an Indonesian film that takes horror to another level.
The story is about Alfie, a girl who along with her stepsisters visit an old house in the middle of the forest to try to find answers about her father’s illness.
What they don’t know is that a supernatural power dwells in that place which has close ties to their family’s dark past.
It tells the story of a girl named Alice who is dedicated to creating shows for adults on the Internet. One day when he tries to access his account, he discovers that someone has been using his profile: a replica of himself.
From then on, the events that occurred during his live video made it clear that a paranormal entity was trying to sabotage his work.
