It’s only been a couple of months since we last combed through Netflix’s horror offerings to find the best options for a movie night, but since their library is ever-changing, we thought we would dive back in and find some more gems that the streaming service is currently offering!* There is a lot of crap when it comes to horror on Netflix, so we thought we’d help you out by making your search on a Friday or Saturday night just a little bit easier so you’re not stuck watching something like Visions or The Veil. It should be noted that it’s difficult to find a true “gem” on Netflix, so not all of these may be 4- or 5-skull films, but they’re all still worth a watch!
*This is for films on American Netflix as of February 20, 2016.
Our own Chris Coffel wrote a fairly positive 4-skull review of Hellions, and while there may be a few opposing opinions out there, you could do a lot worse than Hellions, the latest film from the director of Pontypool (a film that actually made my last “Netflix Gems” list). The film centers around Dora (Chloe Rose), who must face off with a bunch of mysterious masked children on Halloween while also dealing with a rapidly accelerating pregnancy. It isn’t the most coherent film, but it sure is visually stunning and has several creepy moments.
