Best horror movies on Netflix for September 2018

For horror junkies, it’s always the perfect time to bully your nearest and dearest into streaming some spooky flicks. I’ve rounded up the strangest, squirmiest and most terrifying films you can stream on Netflix.

Editors’ note: This guide contains movies with sexually explicit (or strong) language and imagery that aren’t suitable for readers under 18.

The Witch

Metacritic score: 83  Stream on Netflix starting September 17

If you weren’t lucky enough to catch The Witch in theatres, at least you can finally check it out at home. For a first film, writer and director Robert Eggers knocks this one out of the park. Set in the 1600s in New England, The Witch follows a deeply religious family living alone near a forest after being kicked out of their Puritan settlement. Anya Taylor-Joy’s performance is an absolute must see.

The House Next Door (2017)

Stream on Netflix

This Tamil language horror film, also titled Aval, starts off in the romantic style of a Bollywood love story and then very quickly changes it’s tone to something much darker and sinister. It stars the very charismatic Indian actor, Siddharth, as a happily married brain surgeon with some interesting new neighbors. Netflix has it’s fair share of gruesome low budget American horror films with production stills I can barely stomach to look at, so I’m always on the hunt for a more serious and well made horror film to jump out in their catalog. And I found The House Next Door to be just the film I was looking for.

Veronica (2017)

Stream on Netflix

Veronica is a Spanish horror film about a 15-year-old girl who begins experiencing paranormal events after she and her friends conduct a seance with a Ouija board. The film is loosely based on a true story (if you believe that sort of thing). Also, it’s absolutely terrifying. I gave it a first watch it during the daytime while multitasking (a poor choice for a subtitled film, FYI) and yet the film kept demanding my attention. I just kept yelling “NOPE!” at my television. Good luck, friends. Maybe by next month I’ll be able to watch this one again in the dark, but I’m not counting on it.

The Nightmare (2015)

Metacritic score: 68  Stream on: Netflix | Amazon

Big red flag warning to the scream junkies, this isn’t your typical horror film. The Nightmare is actually a horror documentary that focuses on the experiences of eight different people who suffer from sleep paralysis. If you didn’t think a documentary could give you bad dreams, try watching a film about other people’s night terrors. Both the interviews and the recreations of what people experience during sleep paralysis are pretty bone chilling.

Seven (1995)

Metacritic score: 65  Stream on: Netflix | Amazon

All right fine, it’s technically a crime thriller! But Seven (also know as Se7en, 7, or 6+1) is a truly freaky movie and a worthy addition to this list. David Fincher’s film follows two detectives as they investigate a serial killer targeting victims who embody the seven deadly sins. Visually, the film is fairly graphic and definitely not for the squeamish. Isn’t it time you finally found out the answer to the age-old question “What’s in the box?”

The Ritual (2018)

Metacritic score: 57  Stream on: Netflix

Horror junkies tend to be divided when it comes to big bads; some really appreciate the nuance of a metaphorical evil and others want a tangible creature to terrify them. (Feel free to debate among yourselves where non-corporeal ghosts land.) The Ritual uses that divide to its advantage, starting off with some intentional misdirection, and, without giving too much away, delivering a satisfying ending for actual monster lovers. Plus anything set in a forest is just super creepy, right?

Dig Two Graves (2017)

Metacritic score: 67  Stream on: Netflix | Amazon

After her brother drowns, the young Jacqueline is confronted by three strange men who offer to help bring her sibling back to life for a steep price. This eerie film weaves together the past and present and tells a chilling tale of family secrets and blood vengeance. Dig Two Graves is beautifully shot given its low budget, and a quick, easy watch. You can add it to the growing list of independent films that prove you don’t need jump scares to get that lurking, chilling feeling after you watch them.

Beyond the Gates (2016)

Metacritic score: 59  Stream on: Netflix | Amazon

I don’t know when or where we’ll actually hit peak nostalgia. I’m not even sure it’s a threshold that can be reached. So you may as well enjoy this ’80s throwback, Beyond the Gates, which follows two brothers who’ve returned home to clean up their missing father’s VHS rental store. There, they find a VCR board game their father was playing before he disappeared. It’s a bit like Jumanji meets a neon-lit slasher film, though you might want to mitigate your expectations a bit. It’s not the best-performed horror film I’ve ever seen, but there’s a lot of violent bloody fun to be had…….Read more>>
