The 10 Best Horror Movies On Netflix Right Now, According to Reddit

Many of us spend more time picking out our next horror movie to watch than actually watching the film. This is why we found it super relatable when u/1urch420 turned to Reddit for help. The innovative thinker asked the community to recommend the best horror movies available on the streamer. Here’s a list of what seems to be the most popular titles so far.

10. Apostle (2018)

A man tries to rescue his sisters from a sinister cult on a remote island in 1905. Because I’m a nerd, I’m happy to see a Michael Sheen movie on this list. However, I’m surprised this is one of the titles that the Reddit community pushed to the front. 

9. Creep (2015)

A videographer answers an ad to record the last messages of a dying man. He soon finds out there is something much more bizarre going on here. This was the movie that made me a little afraid of Mark Duplass. He always seemed nice, but after watching this and Creep 2, I’m reevaluating my stance on him and “Peachfuzz.” 

8. Incantation (2022)

A woman was cursed after breaking a religious taboo six years ago. She’s now desperate to protect her daughter from the fallout. Kevin Ko’s found footage movie left me unsettled when I watched it. So, I’m glad Reddit is showing it some love because it absolutely deserves to be on this list.

7. Train To Busan (2016)

A zombie outbreak catches passengers of a train off guard, leaving them to fight for their lives in tight quarters. This film had no business being so damn good. Not only is it terrifying, and devastating, but it’s a cinematic masterpiece. Bravo to Reddit for getting it on the list.

6. 30 Days Of Night (2007)

A small Alaskan town’s month of darkness leaves them vulnerable to a band of vicious vampires. As kids, most of us pulled up to see Josh Hartnett and walked out terrified. This is one of the few vampire movies of its decade that I believe deserves more attention. You should hit play tonight and see if you agree with the rest of us.

5. The Babadook (2014)

A mother and son must battle the creepy monster from a mysterious book that turned up in their home. We are all still “Babashook” almost 10 years later. Reddit is one hundred percent correct to recommend this one, and I might revisit it myself. 

4. It Follows (2014)

A teen finds herself stalked by a supernatural force after an unusual sexual encounter. This movie brought many of us to the Maika Monroe fan club. It’s also the film causing us to hesitate before swiping right on the apps. It Follows is possibly the most disturbing movie on this list. 

3. His House (2020)

A refugee couple escapes their war-torn country to find themselves battling a different kind of evil in the English town where they try to start over. This was one of my favorite movies of 2020. I am so happy to see people finally giving it some of the attention it deserves. I think it’s one of the best films that has ever gone directly to Netflix.

2. The Strangers (2008)

A young couple having a rough night in an isolated home is terrorized by three strangers. This was my first Bryan Bertino movie, and I still love this unsettling gem. I’m sad I never got merch that said, “Because you were home.” I’m geeked to see this so close to the top spot and am beginning to wonder if this Reddit list was made for me.

1. The Ritual (2017)

College friends reunite for a trip to Europe but find themselves stalked by a malicious force. This movie ends up on many Reddit lists, so I’m not surprised to see it here. It might be the Midsommar similarities that keep the internet talking. However, I was shocked by how many people agreed it’s one of the best horror movies on Netflix. I want to rewatch all the movies on this list to see if I agree. 

Do you think Reddit got it right this time around? Or do you think some scarier titles are currently available on Netflix? Let me know either way at @misssharai.
