Okay, so here is the thing, I don’t think we can be friends unless you have seen these films.
The Netflix Horror section is really hit or miss, but these are a few of the hidden or less talked about films that really nailed it.
Opinions may vary on these projects, but that’s expected, you can’t please everyone after all. I personally loved everything I’m going to suggest and maybe you will too.
At the very least, you won’t have to scroll through Netflix for an hour finding something to watch this Halloween. So, there is that.
My Netflix (Canada) Horror must sees:
Train to Busan
I can’t stress this one enough. WATCH THIS GODDAMN MOVIE!
This is one of the greatest zombie films of all time. Seriously. It is a zombie movie on steroids and then bitten by a radioactive Dwayne Johnson.
A Horror Purist may dislike it due to the fact that it breaks the zombie rule that states: ZOMBIES SHOULD NEVER RUN!
I am not one of the people who believes that though, so if you’re like me, check this one out immediately.
Home invasion movies are some of my favourites, mainly because they do so much with so little, this one is a great example.
I can some this entire movie up in a few words: A deaf woman being stalked in her home by a killer.
That’s it. Seriously, that is the entire premise, but they pulled this off like a masterclass of horror.
This is the definition of a slow burn film, but holy shit is it ever worth the wait till the end.
I don’t want to say too much about this one because it really is a ride that involves mystery almost the entire journey.
Beautifully shot, powerfully acted, and explosively ended.
The Girl with All the Gifts
Another rule breaking Zombie film that does an incredible twist of the genre. This one oozes with originality, and has child actors that talented beyond their years.
If you are looking for a zombie double header, this pairs well with Train to Busan even though they are quite different.
Based on the Novel by some unknown horror author named, *checks notes* Stephen King… Hopefully this guy blows up after this one.
All kidding aside, this story is brilliant and pairing it with Carla Gugino’s performance was almost too much of a good thing.
I really loved this one for a number of reasons, it felt like the perfect storm that hit the small screen like a tidal wave.
Would you Rather?
Buckle up, this one is the horror equivalent to binge drinking on an empty stomach, and then having to work a 12 hour day.
It really pushes the envelope to how far you would go for an ultimate goal, but it also has some truly disturbing shots through out the movie.
For the best experience watch with friends and discuss after for social commentary… Or watch alone and ride the wave of twisted body horror.
This Netflix original was a cut above the other horrors they put out every couple of months.
If you are a fan of The VVitch this movie might also be your jam too. Period piece horrors usually take a longer time to deliver, and this was no exception, but it delivers!
It had all the style of a Grimm’s Fairytale and all the gory splatter of a 90’s horror flick.
Mom and Dad
This movie hit me in the face like a sledgehammer and kept on going. It was a strange tale that reminded me of a surreal version of The Crazies meets a 90’s sitcom.
It had all the family tropes that you would expect, but with some surprises that come out of left field.
Anna and the Apocalypse
As far as British horror musicals go this might be my favourite one that has ever existed.
The songs are hilarious, the gore is over the top, and it just hits you with as much weird as you can handle without being too ridiculous. Which in the case of a horror zombie musical is pretty hard.
This movie doesn’t need more accolades because it goes without saying that it was one of the best horror films of the decade.
Toni Colette is actually a force to be reckoned with and she will forever have one of the strongest acting performances on screen for the genre.
The dinner scene…. Dialogue, acting, directing, and just…. It’s perfect, okay? Literally perfect.
Jane Levy and Fede Alvarez team up for the second time to drop the home invasion genre on it’s head with some major authority.
Violent, jumpy, greatly acted, a sinister villain, and somehow there is still more to love. If you haven’t seen this one by now, watch it tonight.
The 2014 best horror movie and supernatural powerhouse filmed on a generous indie budget. Hot damn, this movie was directed to utter perfect and is a slow burn in its finest form.
It is haunting, effective, heartbreaking, and unless you lack all empathy, you will feel kind of lost once you’re finished it.
I loved this movie and it’s one I’m always excited to talk about. Seriously, this one rocks beyond words.
One thought on “I’m concerned if you haven’t seen these films on Netflix (Canada)”
Thanks for sharing! I didn’t know Train to Busan was on Netflix, gotta give it a watch.
