The Number 1 Horror Movie on Netflix is Hilarious and Nasty: “I hope they make a sequel”


An unexpected little horror film made it’s way to the top of the Netflix charts today and it’s a holiday miracle to behold. Sleeper festive hit There’s Something in the Barn is the most-watched horror film on the platform today, if that’s what you wanna call it. More of a horror-comedy in line with Gremlins, but gorier, this fun flick is finding new fans even though Christmas is long past.

In the holiday horror comedy, Bill (Martin Starr) moves his American wife Carol (Amrita Acharia) and children Nora (Zoe Winter-Hansen) and Lucas (Townes Bunner) to Norway where he’s inherited a family estate. While Bill dreams of turning the adjourning barn into a bed and breakfast, his family struggles to adapt to Scandinavian life. Lucas discovers a mischievous barn elf from ancient folklore living in the barn with a set of rules the family must follow. When Bill dismisses Lucas’s warnings and fails to follow sacred holiday traditions, the elf plots to get rid of the American intruders at any cost.
