Josh and Renai begin looking for help but no doctor seems to know what has caused this. With even stranger things happening around the house Renai becomes sure it is haunted leading the family to move again. This solves nothing though.

4. Geralds Game

There’s no question as to why this is one of the best horror movies on Netflix. You shouldn’t expect a plethora of scary monsters in this one. This is more of a psychological horror that will leave you in awe. Netflix knocked it out of the park with this one.

Geralds Game Movie Description

Trying to make their marriage more adventurous, Gerald (Bruce Greenwood) and Jessie (Carla Gugino) take a trip to a remote lake house. While there, the two end up wanting to spice up their sex life so they try out a kinky sex game. While in the midst of this game, Gerald ends up unexpectedly dying. This leaves Jessie handcuffed to the bed. With little water and food it isn’t long before she begins hallucinating. With no way to notify someone, she must find a way to escape before her seemingly inevitable death.

5. The Ritual

Because of this movie we are never going hiking anywhere near a forest. Nothing good can ever come from hiking and getting lost in a forest and this movie proves that!

The Ritual Movie Description

Four college buddies decide to reunite after the death of a close friend of theirs. Together they have decided to hike through the Scandinavian wilderness. However, this trip takes a dark turn when the friends go down the wrong path leading them to a strange forest of Norse legend. In this forest, an evil lives that will now terrorize this friend group. No matter where they turn, it will follow, and they are all in extreme danger.

6. The Witch

If a horror movie is set far in the past it is automatically scarier than any of the ones set in the present. Just like babies and dolls automatically make a movie more scary. If you haven’t seen this it’s worth the watch!

The Witch Movie Description

A farm family living in New England during the 1630s now fears the worst when the youngest, Samuel, vanishes into thin air. The family blames Thomasin (Anya Taylor-Joy) the older girl who was watching Samuel when he disappeared.
