Top 10 Horror Movies on Netflix This October | prettylittlewriter

 October is here, and my favourite holiday season has begun! 

With Halloween just around the corner, I thought I'd share a little post on my top 10 horror movies that are on Netflix right now.

10. The Babysitter 1 & 2
Am I cheating already with including both of them? I think they come as a pair to be honest, and with the latest one only being released recently, I had to include it! I have literally only just watched these movies today, and I must admit, at first I was skeptical, its a teen horror/comedy that, from the trailer, looked absolutely ridiculous.

But after starting the first one, I was hooked! It's hilarious, with just the right amount of gore and jump scares. I'd put it as a modern combination of Scream & Scary Movie (not quite as ridiculous as SM).
Not to mention you've got the ridiculously attractive Robbie Amell shirtless throughout most of it (I tweeted about him being shirtless, he liked it; life has been made). 

9. Hereditary
This movie freaked me the hell out when I first watched it. I had no idea what was really going on, and there's a car scene which I did NOT expect that I can still see perfectly in my mind (if you watch it, you'll know what I mean).
This movie is thrilling and has the perfect amount of confusion to it to keep you guessing.

8. The Cabin in the Woods
It's been YEARS since I watched this one, but I remember it being brilliant. It's not your typical horror movie. They're all being manipulated by other humans in a lab type setting, which the five friends are completely unaware of. 
Without spoiling it, the ending was impressive. A must watch.

7. Would You Rather
A psychological thriller, will an impressive cast, this is one of my favourite horror movies that I can repeatedly watch. Brittany Snow as the lead actress, she is invited to a dinner where she is asked to take part in a game of would you rather with some other guests to win money. But the game involves some horrific choices, not for the faint-hearted. 

6. Mercy Black
As teenagers, two friends stabbed another classmate because they believed in a ghost called Mercy Black. Fifteen years later, one of the girls is released from a mental institute and goes to live with her sister. The girl starts to question whether Mercy Black was just a figment of her imagination, but things aren't as they seem.

Another brilliant psychological horror movie, it gave me chills just writing this. I wasn't a huge fan of the ending, however, 97% of the movie is brilliant.

5. The Visit
Two kids go to stay with their grandparents, terror ensues. This is meant to be a horror/comedy, but I didn't really find this movie comical in the slightest. The grandma freaked me out so much. There's a scene where she crawls underneath the house that gives me The Grudge vibes; did not appreciate that.
Brilliant concept, and has some great scares.

4. The House at the End of the Street
A girl moves to a new neighborhood with her Mother and starts a relationship with the boy who's sister killed his parents then vanished. 
Without spoiling the movie, it has some incredible twists and turns, and Jennifer Lawrence is brilliant in it. Also LOVE Max Thieriot as the love interest. I would highly recommend this one!

3. Prom Night
This is one I have on repeat every single Halloween without fail. More of a thriller than a horror, Brittany Snow stars again as a teenager who's family were brutally murdered by a teacher who became obsessed with her. This is a remake of Prom Night starring Jamie Lee Curtis, but I honestly prefer this one myself. Whilst at her high school prom, things go wrong as the teacher has escaped from prison. 
I love everything about this movie, the casting (including Idris Elba!), the fashion & ESPECIALLY the music; there are some absolute bangers!

2. Eli
A little boy named Eli is taken to a special facility to try and cure a unique disease where is allergic to the outdoors. He begins to experience supernatural occurrences in the house, and he believes it could be haunted.

Now, this movie is my number 2 for a reason, and without going into any specifics, I just really want you to go away and watch this movie if you haven't already. There are some HUGE twists and turns that you do not expect, and the ending is brilliant. 100% would recommend to anyone!

1. Before I Wake
This one got me emotional. An incredible story, scary, thrilling and heartbreaking, all at the same time.
A young couple take on a foster boy named Cody, after their own son recently died in an accidental drowning. Cody has these incredibly vivid nightmares where he is visited by 'The Canker Man', and whilst he is asleep, the dreams become a reality and the foster parents can see what he is dreaming about. 
I won't go into any more detail, but this is a must watch. I love this movie so much.

This was pretty hard to narrow down to just 10 movies, but having to choose those on Netflix made it slightly easier for me. 

Now, in the words of ghost face, what's your favourite scary movie?
