If you’re looking for a modern update on the haunted house yarn, you can’t do much better than James Wan’s The Conjuring. Following a family plagued by ghostly and demonic forces in their new home, the film introduces Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga’s instantly-lovable paranormal hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren, who face one of the most terrifying cases of their life.

Wan’s signature style is on full display here, leading to some of the most enduring creature creations and scariest scenes of his career, and while The Conjuring’s legacy has grown into a billion-dollar franchise, 2013 original still stands on its own as a super-scary, self-contained modern horror classic.
The Conjuring 2
Director: James Wan
Cast: Vera Farmiga, Patrick Wilson, Frances O'Connor, Madison Wolfe, Simon McBurney, Franka Potente
Speaking of that billion-dollar franchise, Netflix also has Wan’s follow-up The Conjuring 2 available to stream right now. The 2016 sequel picks up with the Warrens during the investigation of one of their most infamous cases, known as the Einfeld poltergeist, which finds them helping yet another spirit-plagued family, this time in the U.K. While The Conjuring 2 isn’t quite as downright scary as the first film, there are still plenty of wonderful Wan creatures to keep you on the edge of your seat, and of course, Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson are reliably endearing as the Warrens. Bonus, the film’s opening scene also pays tribute to another iconic horror franchise with a nod to the Amityville Haunting.

"Four friends with a long-standing -- but strained -- connection take a hiking trip into the Swedish wilderness, from which they may never return." My favorite Netflix movie. It really convinced me to give other Netflix movies a shot. I usually love any "lost in the woods" movie, and any kind of creature feature is fun. There is clearly something out there, but what is it?
Director: J. D. Dillard
Cast: Kiersey Clemons, Emory Cohen, Hanna Mangan-Lawrence, Andrew Crawford

I’ll always be a little bit stumped as to why Blumhouse didn’t give this one a bigger push, because J.D. Dillard’s creature feature/survival thriller Sweetheart is a striking and gripping genre-hybrid that also has a lot to say. Don’t expect a lot of dialogue though, because in classic Cast Away fashion, the film picks up with Kiersey Clemons stranded alone on a desert island, an excellent performance opportunity Clemons easily rises to that offers plenty of survival thrills on its own before a killer creature comes crawling out of the ocean. As for the creature, it’s got a fantastic design and Dillard shows it off well, making the most of his budget with cleverly constructed set-pieces and scene changes to keep Clemons’ island prison from feeling too small.
Director: Gareth Evans
Cast: Dan Stevens, Kristine Froseth, Michael Sheen, Lucy Boynton, Bill Milner
"In 1905, a drifter on a dangerous mission to rescue his kidnapped sister tangles with a sinister religious cult on an isolated island." This whole film feels like stage theatre performances. Over-the-top acting, and it works. Horror movies dealing with cults usually get a thumbs up from me, and this one was unique it many ways. Highly recommend.
Director: Susanne Bier
Cast: Sandra Bullock, Trevante Rhodes, John Malkovich, Sarah Paulson, Jacki Weaver, Rosa Salazar, Danielle Macdonald, Lil Rel Howery, Tom Hollander, Machine Gun Kelly, BD Wong, Pruitt Taylor Vince
A Netflix sensation, Bird Box follows Sandra Bullock's reluctant mother-to-be who's forced to care for two young children after a devastating invasion takes away everyone's ability to see. Technically, the human beings in this post-apocalyptic scenario still can see if they're so inclined, but to do so is to invite madness and, ultimately, death. It's a clever gimmick that's on par with that of Hush and A Quiet Place, but is it strong enough on its own to carry the movie? Your mileage may vary, Collider cites.
It Comes At Night
Director: Trey Edward Shults
Cast: Joel Edgerton, Riley Keough, Christopher Abbott, Carmen Ejogo, Kelvin Harrison Jr.
"As danger stalks the world outside his isolated home, an overprotective father faces a tough decision when another family shows up seeking help." You will enjoy the feel of this movie, and although you will not fall in love with it. It is still worth the watch. The acting was compelling and the mystery of the "it" in It Comes At Night really keeps you on edge. For some reason, the style feels like a blend of 10 Cloverfield Lane and Children of Men.

Martin Freeman stars in this Aussie zombie drama about a father searching for a safe place for his family amidst a zombie outbreak. Freeman plays Andy, a fairly easy-going guy, who’s forced to make some tough calls when he gets stranded in the Outback with his newborn daughter during the apocalypse. He fights off a few of the walking dead, but the real danger comes from the living (what’s left of humanity after the contagion has spread). Freeman rarely plays the rugged hero type, but he does so convincingly here, and while there aren’t hordes of biters wandering the desert, the isolationist aspect of things makes this horror story feels eerily plausible, Uproxx cites.
Director: Martin Scorsese
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, Max von Sydow
"A U.S. marshal's troubling visions compromise his investigation into the disappearance of a patient from a hospital for the criminally insane." There is a lot of bias here and it is also technically a thriller, but I read the book by Dennis Lehane three times in school. There are plenty of creepy moments, and although I can't recall a jump scare, the island itself is very eerie.
Killer Klowns From Outer Space
Director: Stephen Chiodo
Characters: Debbie Stone, Dave Hanson, Bob McReed

"An alien band of killer clowns descends from the cosmos to harvest scores of small-town victims, cocooning their prey in cotton candy to eat later." A classic, and of course, was introduced to it thanks to my uncle (sounds about right), as cited bu BuzzFeed. As goofy as the film is, plenty of people have always been legitimately freaked out by the character design of these alien-clowns. They have a face only a clown-alien-mother could love.
Director: Mike Flanagan
Cast: John Gallagher Jr., Kate Siegel, Michael Trucco, Samantha Sloyan
Hush falls somewhere in line with films like You're Next, which featured a relatively more complex cast and plot but has the same pro-female survivalist feel, and I Spit on Your Grave, just without the overt sexual violence and exploitation. In that respect, Hush plays things a bit safer than more incendiary films, but it's also purer with respect to the spirit of the terror at the heart of the conflict. There are other tropes here that will irritate you, of course, but most of them are soon remedied. Even the music gets in on the act, playing throughout the movie in a subtle way that makes it almost disappear beneath ambient noise, at times fading out completely. Hush is a worthwhile addition to any horror library, not just Netflix's streaming edition.
As Above So Below
Director: John Erick Dowdle
Cast: Perdita Weeks, Ben Feldman, Edwin Hodge, François Civil, Marion Lambert

Before Ben Feldman played a lovable know-it-all on Superstore, the guy was surviving a terror-filled jaunt through the catacombs of Paris in this horror movie. Feldman plays George, a reluctant sidekick to Scarlett (Perdita Weeks), a young alchemy scholar, and his former girlfriend. Scarlett convinces George a few others to venture into the famous Paris underground in order to find the fabled philosopher’s stone (Harry Potter kids should know all about this thing, we’re not explaining it here). What they find instead is basically Dante’s Inferno come to life as they face down cults, demons, ghosts, and all manner of horrific beings. Let this be a warning, children: Nothing good happens this far below street level. Nothing.
