It’s almost hard to believe, given how much streaming dominates the conversation, but Netflix’s shipped-to-your-house disc service is actually still alive and well here in 2018. Yes, the company is still sending out those red envelopes with discs inside, and their rental offerings naturally differ greatly from what Netflix offers on their streaming service.
In any event, Netflix just revealed their 13 most frequently rented horror movies over the years, offering up the Halloween-appropriate list over on the Netflix blog this week.
“Which scary movies have DVD Netflix members rented most over the years? Here are the top 13! Perhaps you’ll find a new horror flick to add to your queue for a Halloween movie night.”
- 13. The Rite
- 12. Paranormal Activity
- 11. 28 Weeks Later
- 10. The Haunting in Connecticut
- 9. Shaun of the Dead
- 8. Drag Me to Hell
- 7. The Last House on the Left (2009)
- 6. The Crazies (2010)
- 5. Daybreakers
- 4. Red Riding Hood
- 3. Zombieland
- 2. The Wolfman (2010)
- 1. Cloverfield
In particular, we’re pretty surprised to see the 2010 version of The Wolfman ranking so high, as the film’s box office failure spelled the end of dark, scary Universal monster movies. Go figure!
