6. Wes Craven's New Nightmare

undefined

New Nightmare is beyond meta, telling the story of what happens when Freddy Krueger breaks into the "real" world and starts terrorizing the stars of the Nightmare on Elm Street franchise. Blurring the line between fantasy and reality, it uses Freddy to his fullest potential, creating a dreamlike atmosphere that truly feels like a nightmare come to life.


7. The House That October Built

undefined

Horror movies have gotten so good in recent memory that it sometimes feels like you're getting totally screwed if you're not watching a something revolutionary. That said, sometimes you just want something spooky that you haven't seen before and The House That October Built will certainly scratch that itch. Following a film crew as they uncover a dark underbelly to the haunted house industry, The House That October Built is the kinda movie you forget about 10 minutes after credits, but not the sort of movie you regret having spent 90 minutes of your life on. If you're looking to just click play and conk out for a bit, this is the spook-em-up for you.


8. Gremlins

You probably remember being terrified by Gremlins as a kid, and there's a good reason for that: It's fucking terrifying. If you're looking to take a stroll down memory lane, flip on this Joe Dante classic. It's still just as spooky and hilarious as you remember, though you might be shocked by just how dark it is. Despite my many, MANY, letters, Netflix has yet to put of the far superior sequel, but until they do, this should be more than enough to tide you over. (Please use the comments to discuss how good Gremlins 2 is. Thank you.)



9. The Silenced

If you're willing to put up with some subtitles (or speak Korean) you'll probably enjoy The Silenced. This undiscovered gem tells the story of a girl sent to a school in the countryside, only to discover some nefarious shit going on. Without spoiling too much, I'll say that the the movie slowly reveals more and more crazy shit, without ever feeling like it's gone off the rails. 

10. The Invitation

Some movies, the less you know the better. The Invitation is the definition of one of those movies. Since I don't want to spoil it for anyone, I'll just say that it tells the story of the dinner party from hell. Other than that, all I have to say is that you should go watch it. It's on Netflix so you have no excuses.
