Paco Plaza’s new horror film Veronica recently debuted on Netflix, and you probably read the headlines that indicated the movie was way too scary for many viewers to even finish. The film, based on true events, no doubt saw an uptick in viewership in the wake of those attention-grabbing claims; after all, who could resist such promises?
Inspired by the viral success of Veronica, Netflix just sent over a list of 10 other horror films, currently streaming on Netflix, that viewers couldn’t finish. According to their data, the 10 movies were turned off by large numbers of viewers after at least 70% of the runtime had passed, which they say indicates more than mere disinterest.
“Technically speaking, these are the top horror films that committed viewers just couldn’t finish – they made it halfway through, they made it past the climax, but they just couldn’t survive until the end.”
Here’s the full list:
- Cabin Fever
- Carnage Park
- México Bárbaro
- The Conjuring
- The Human Centipede 2: Full Sequence
- The Void
Mind you, there are of course endless reasons why people decide to turn off movies, beyond them being “too scary,” so we urge you to take this data with a grain of salt.
For what it’s worth, however, The Void (pictured above) rules.
