As we all know Halloween is approaching and there’s nothing wrong with celebrating it until the 31 of October so for all the horror movies fans, here are some of the best ones that are worth watching on Netflix this Halloween.
This movie is based on Stephen King’s best seller novel and it’s an absolute terrifying classic. The 1980 mystery/psychological horror directed by Stanley Kubrick will leave you baffled, it’s a true masterpiece since Stanley Kubrick has been known to leave many clues throughout his movies to always keep you second guessing.
This movie is based on one of the most terrifying serial killers ED GEIN who’s been also known as “the butcher of painfield” , this 1960 horror/mystery is also a classic in my opinion because it has too many scenes that you just can’t forget and you tend to always remember them when the movie gets mentioned. also being based on a real life serial killer who collected his victims skin to make trophies out of them is a plus.
THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS
Doctor Hannibal Lecter is one of my favorite characters as Anthony Hopkins portrayed a psychopath serial killer in the most brilliantly terrifying way. This 1991 drama/mystery is based on based on a real person, but he wasn’t a serial killer. In 2013, Thomas Harris (author of Silence of the Lambs) revealed that the inspiration behind Lecter was a Mexican doctor who was convicted of not only murdering his partner, but chopping him up. It was in the early 1960s when Harris met the doctor at Topo Chico Penitentiary in Nuevo Leon, Mexico, while working on a story for a magazine.
The omen is a movie based on the story of the son of Satan, an evil child who’s called Damien, who gets adopted by a rich family. one of the iconic scenes of this movie would be the one in the beginning where you see that during the course of his birthday party the nanny attempts suicide from the house roof while shouting THIS IS FOR YOU DAMIEN. four parts of the movie where made.The Omen is a British-American horror film franchise beginning in 1976:
The Omen 1976
Damien: Omen II 1978
Omen III: The Final Conflict 1981
Omen IV: The Awakening 1991
A movie that’s based on the notorious serial killer Henry Lee Lucas and his partner in crime Ottis Toole, what differentiates this movie from other killer movies is that it only shows the criminal mind and that’s it, so no police chase or investigations only the sick ideas of a killer.
The saw movie series that started 2004 would be your perfect choice if you’re into gore bloody psychological type of of movies although the plot twist and the events might get you confused if you watch the movies in their exact order so here’s the right order to watch them.
Saw II (2005)
Saw VI (2009)
Saw III (2006)
Saw V (2008)
Saw IV (2007)
Saw 3D (2010)
The babadook is an Australian movie based on Monster by Jennifer Kent. this supernatural psychological horror would give you a real good scare and it would stick in your head for days after watching it.
This movie is about a demon that haunts children might be one of the good horror movies that are actually scary but although the first part was spot on the second part was not that scary.
The movie IT is based on one of Stephen King’s novels , and with 700.4 million USD in the box office i can tell you that it’s a movie worth your time but not if you’re afraid of clowns because this clown turns your worse fear into reality.
Of course no horror movies list should exclude the conjuring franchise well at least conjuring 1 and 2 since they are obviously the best, but i guess conjuring 2 was the only one that actually gave me a good scare and endless nightmares, these two are based on true stories about families that were haunted by actual demons and the whole stories are based on true files and recordings that get played at the end of every movie.
