What is the size of their movie catalog now, over 4000? That means you spent one minute looking at each title Netflix you would be there for almost three days. If it is horror movies that you’re looking for, it’s a daunting task, especially if you’re looking for something new.
Netflix does a pretty good job of letting you know “What’s New” or “Recently Added” (whatever that means), but we’ll take it a step further and list the most recent horror movies that have landed in the genre ribbon over the past few weeks, including one that dropped on Friday.
Also, these titles are taken from the US version.
Horror movies just added to Netflix:
The day turn (2022) falls on August 12.
It’s far from Ray or Dream girls for Foxxbut Day shift brings it back to its action roots. Note that this video is from the people behind it John Wick so expect it to be over the top, gory and humorous.
Foxx is currently working on some children’s material and adult dramas, including the life story of Mike Tyson, so let’s sit back and enjoy his most beloved film since. Baby Driver.
Synopsis: A hard-working, hard-working father who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted 8-year-old daughter. His menial job cleaning a pool in the San Fernando Valley is a front for his real source of income: hunting and killing vampires.
The Wretched (2019)
Sometimes indie films have the biggest impact. From Halloween to Paranormal Activity, tight budgets seem to bring out the best in filmmakers. Take this terrifying supernatural thriller Fucking. Chock full of capricious fearsfoil bones with bursting bubbles and a twist you might not see coming, this movie is as creepy as they come.
The Pierce brothers directed this tense chiller and we look forward to their next effort. But, IMDb hasn’t stopped them for anything yet. We might get a sequel to Fucking if we’re lucky, but that’s just wishful thinking.
Synopsis: A defiant teenager struggling with his parents’ impending divorce confronts a thousand-year-old witch who lives under the skin and poses as the woman next door.
Or: Crazy, Possessed Asians. From the production house a Sam Raimi, Umma it’s an effective ghost film with just a skosh of J-horror. The film did relatively well at the box office, but it really took off on VOD. If you weren’t willing to pay the $20 for early access to this title, it might warm your heart to know that it’s now on Netflix for—for lack of a better word— free of charge!
This is the perfect title for scanners who spend more time looking at titles than viewing them. It’s supernatural, it’s creepy, and it has Sandra Oh!
Synopsis: Amanda and her daughter live a quiet life on an American farm, but when the remains of her estranged mother arrive from Korea, Amanda is haunted by the fear of turning into her own mother.
For those of you who stay away from movies you have to read, you’re missing out Incantation because it is doubled. This has already topped fan lists as one of the best of 2022. While the found footage genre is probably played (ahem Dashboard room!), Incantation actually makes sense in using raw footage.
Of everything on this list except Day shift because it’s not out yet Incantation is by far the scariest. Plus, it comes with a curse if you follow it. Goal!
Synopsis: Six years ago, Li Ronan was cursed after breaking a religious taboo. Now, he must protect his daughter from the consequences of his actions.
The Fog (2007)
The most notorious end probably in the entire film world, The fog he’s not afraid of, well…anything! Even Stephen King, the author of the source material was impressed and hates everything! The bottom line is that there are King adaptations and there are That’s great King adaptations: The Shawshank Redemption, The green mile, mess, and The fog.
Don’t bother with the recent TV series, stick with the original.
Synopsis: A strange storm unleashes a species of bloodthirsty creatures in a small town, where a small band of citizens hide in a supermarket and fight for their lives.
John Carpenter’s Vampires (1998)
Remember when John Carpenter just kept the classics are coming? Then he started doing strange things like Prince of Darkness, Ghosts of Marsand department. Somewhere between these titles, he gave us The vampires. But the great thing about Carpenter is the rewatchability. Even his worst movie, if you think about it, is better than most of the stuff we see today. You can test this theory today on Netflix if you want.
Synopsis: Returning from an ambush that killed his entire team, a vengeful vampire slayer must recover an ancient Catholic relic that, if acquired by the vampires, will allow them to walk in the sunlight.
Blair Witch (2016)
continuation, Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2 has its stans, but let’s admit that they are few. Instead of taking the convoluted route, Blair Witch goes for convenience and basically tells the same story as the first one, but with an update technology. Talk about a prequel. But this one works despite its derivative flaws and actually manages to give us some real scares. Just ignore the twist and focus on the terror.
Synopsis: After discovering a video showing what he believes to be his missing sister Heather, James and a group of friends head to the forest believed to be inhabited by the Blair Witch.
More scary movies on Netflix we recommend
If you have already seen the above movies or are still looking something new, we have some suggestions for you. Chances are you’ve seen most of these, but just in case, let’s remind you of a few that just dropped on the platform.
This update a The Roman king of the same name may have been better than the 1990 miniseries. But that’s because the technology is more advanced now. There are some liberties the director took with the source material, but it doesn’t affect the overall quality of the film.
If you haven’t seen this adaptation of the book, that’s okay because it’s a completely different experience and still manages to stand on its own.
In the summer of 1989, a group of bullied kids band together to destroy a shape-shifting monster that disguises itself as a clown and preys on the children of Derry, their small town in Maine.
Game Over (2019)
Strange. This is strange. But that just makes it interesting. We have to admit we didn’t I looked at him however, so we leave it up to you, dear readers, to let us know if it’s worth any of our time.
Synopsis: A nyctophobic woman must battle her inner demons to stay alive in the game called life.
Brahms: The Boy II (2020)
Did the first really need a sequel? Apparently so, and you can watch it on Netflix right now. Joining the creepy doll madness, boy it was a subtle thriller with a supernatural twist. In this sequel, is the doll alive? He is possessed? What exactly is happening? Don’t spoil it.
Synopsis: After a family moves into Heelshire Manor, their young son soon befriends a life-like doll named Brahms.
