BELOW IS THE U.S. LIST. FOR THE U.K. LIST CLICK HERE

20. Dead End (2003)

Best Horror Movies Netflix UK & US
On Christmas Eve, Frank (Ray Wise) and his family are heading to the in-laws when they take a shortcut through the woods. It takes them onto a seemingly endless road, where time and space lose their grounding and a haunting presence seeks to destroy them. ‘Dead End’ is smart, creepy and atmospheric.

19. Slither (2006)

Good Horror Movies Netflix
A small town is taken over by a slug-like alien plague, turning residents into zombies and all forms of mutant monsters. This is wild, disgusting horror fun from director James Gunn (former Troma man and now directing ‘Guardians of the Galaxy’). In fact it’s a lot like a Troma film, well-made on a decent budget. Or like a good version of ‘Nights of the Creeps’. Starring fan favourite Nathan Fillion (Joss Whedon’s ‘Firefly’), Michael Rooker shows once again he’s willing to do anything for his art.

18. The House Of The Devil (2009)

Pitch-perfect homage to ’80s VHS horror (it was even released on VHS, in 2009). An ’80s college student takes a strange babysitting job that coincides with a full lunar eclipse. Gradually she realises her clients are keeping a terrifying secret. Bright young things Jocelin Donahue and Greta Gerwig catch the eye but the show is stolen by Tom Noonan, proving his eerie, uncanny showing in ‘Manhunter’ more than two decades previously was no fluke.

17. Pontypool (2008)

Best Horror Movies On Netflix UK & US
What if a virus could spread through words? Get caught in a verbal loop, or hear the wrong thing and madness locks in. When the only option is to ‘shut up or die’ that’s a problem for one mouthy local DJ and his staff, holed up in the radio station as chaos erupts outside. It’s a fascinating concept that’s hard to imagine but really smartly done. Just don’t ask me to explain the last 10 minutes…

16. Daybreakers (2010)

Good Netflix Horror Movies
In 2017 a plague transforms most of the world into vampires. Faced with a dwindling blood supply, they farm the remaining humans and look for a new system to continue their existence. Meanwhile a secret team of vampires, including Ethan Hawke, uncovers a way to rescue the human race. The movie presents a fascinating look at a vampire living in a vampire world, with all the social problems and dangers that might entail. It’s a great bit of world-building and with Ethan Hawke, Willem Dafoe, Sam Neill as the leads you have three of the most watchable actors around.

15. Re-Animator (1985)

Gory horror-comedy based on the work of H. P. Lovecraft about a dedicated med-school student who becomes involved in bizarre experiments to re-animate dead tissue. Jeffrey Combs gives one of the best performances in horror cinema as the ‘mad scientist’ – it should have made a star of him.

      Thanks for the heads up. It’s available in the UK but not the US. To avoid confusion I’ve now split the US Netflix and the UK Netflix into two different lists.

    In my opinion the best Netflix horror movies (right now) are Devil, A Tale of Two Sisters and The Frighteners :)

    Horror is my favorite genre, whenever a new one comes out I go to the cinema to see it. Although the old horror movies on Netflix are much better than the new.
