Where to Stream

An American Werewolf in London

When you’ve had your fill of comedies, documentaries, and action movies, sometimes the best thing to do is shake things up with a good scare. Netflix understands how real the hankering for horror can be, and they’ve got a ton of some of the spookiest cinematic endeavors available to stream. Whether you’re trying to keep it classic with flicks like The Shining and The Fly or explore how the genre has changed with A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night and It Follows, the possibilities for skin-crawling, creepy fun are endless.

Horror is a big umbrella, and this streaming giant gets it – the sub-genres for the ‘Horror’ category attempt to collect all of your favorite kinds of flicks: cult horror, teen screams, monster movies, and horror comedies are just a few of the seemingly endless selection. You’re sure to find the right title to elicit a scream-laugh, creepy cringe, or provide the perfect nightmare fuel.

Scared about where you should start? We’ve sorted through Netflix‘s extensive catalogue to find the best of the best. These are the top 20 horror movies on Netflix, listed by their IMDb ratings.
