Fear the Streets Trilogy

Year of publication: 2021
Director: Leigh Janiak

We’re cheating a bit here. The Streets of Fear Trilogy is a horror movie trilogy, which is why we cram the trilogy into this entry, but they work extremely well as a whole. You have little chance of finishing the first entry and stopping there, and so is this gripping neon-colored slasher.

Taking more inspiration from Scream, Street of Fear: Part 1 introduces us to Deena, played by Kiana Madeira, her lover Olivia Scott Samantha Fraser of Olivia Scott Welch has moved to neighbouring Sunnyside. However, the couple find themselves caught up in a curse that has plagued Shadyside for centuries, and now they must team up with friends and family to rid the city of terror once and for all. The first film was set in the ’90s, while the sequel harks back to the ’70s and 1660s, revealing more and more of Shadyside’s curse. It’s a can’t-miss trilogy and definitely one of the best horror movies on Netflix.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Year of publication: 2022
Director: David Blue Garcia

This Netflix film is the ninth installment in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series and is a direct sequel to the original film released in 1974. Sally Hardisty, the sole survivor of the Leatherface massacre in the 1970s film, returns, while John LaRocuet reprises his role as the storyteller. Add more blood, guts and Gen Z, and in short, it’s pretty much Netflix’s killer. With a quick 81-minute runtime, it’s definitely worth a look.

Director: Peter Soworth

Not a terrifying pilot, blood-red skies spotted a hijacked plane while a mother with a rare disease was on board with her son. But the twist (or bite?) comes when there’s a vampire on the plane, and it’s the hijackers who should be fearing for their lives.

Peri Baumeister plays the grieving mother Nadja, while Carl Anton Koch plays her son. Expect a surprisingly emotional movie, high-rise buildings, creepy tensions, and of course, a lot of blood…

Year of publication: 2017
Director: Mike Flanagan

Stephen King’s popularity led to an adaptation that many thought could not be made into a movie. The recent stabbing of another Mike Flanagan film proved those naysayers wrong. It’s perhaps King’s most faithful adaptation, bringing to life a macabre tome largely about a woman locked in bed, alone, in the middle of nowhere. That woman is Jesse (Carla Gugino), and her husband Gerald (Bruce Greenwood) takes her to a quiet resort for a weekend of side dishes and $200 worth of steaks.

Her stock gave up, and she was handcuffed to a bedpost with an unfamiliar dog… oh, and a crawling red-eyed demon lurking in the shadows at night. Carla Gugino’s stunning performance builds on layers of horror from Jesse’s past, right down to the tingling tail you’ve never seen before.

Fear Street Trilogy

Year released: 2021Director: Leigh Janiak
We’re cheating a bit here. The Fear Street trilogy is, well, a trilogy of horror movies, so we’re cramming three into this one entry, but they work as a singular whole piece incredibly well. There’s almost no chance of you finishing the first entry and stopping there, such is this gripping neon-colored slasher. 
Taking more than a pinch of inspiration from Scream, Fear Street: Part One introduces us to Kiana Madeira’s Deena, a teenager from Shadyside whose lover, Olivia Scott Welch’s Samantha Fraser, has moved to the neighboring Sunnyside. However, the pair get mixed up in a curse that’s haunted Shadyside for hundreds of years, and now they must work with friends and family to rid the town of the horror once and for all. The first movie takes place in the ’90s, while the sequels go back to the ’70s and 1660s, revealing more and more about the curse of Shadyside. This is one trilogy not to be missed, and is absolutely one of the best horrors on Netflix.

This Netflix movie is the ninth installment in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise and serves as a direct sequel to the original film, which was released in 1974. The character of Sally Hardesty, the only survivor of Leatherface’s killing spree in the ’70s movie, returns, while John Larroquette reprises his role as the story’s narrator. Add in some more blood, guts, and Gen Z-ers, and that’s pretty much the Netflix slasher in a nutshell. At a brisk 81 minutes in length, it’s well worth a watch.

Year released: 2021Director: Peter Thorwarth
Not one for fearful flyers, Blood Red Sky sees a plane hijacked while a mother suffering from a strange illness and her son are onboard. But, the twist (or bite?) comes when it turns out there’s a vampire on the plane – and it’s the hijackers who should fear for their lives. 
Peri Baumeister stars as Nadja, the afflicted mother, while Carl Anton Koch plays her son. Expect a surprisingly emotional film with some high-altitude scares, pulse-pounding thrills – and, of course, lots of blood…

Starring Krysten Ritter as a witch named Natacha, Nightbooks follows a young boy named Alex (Winslow Fegley) who has a talent for writing spooky stories.

Based on J.A. White’s novel of the same name, Nightbooks is scary but in a kid-friendly way – more implications than showing gore. How did the director achieve that balance? Well, you can find out, in our interview with David Yarovesky.

Gerald’s Game

(Image credit: Netflix)
Year released: 2017Director: Mike Flanagan
Stephen King’s hot streak brings with it an adaptation many said was unfilmable. This recent stab, another Mike Flanagan film, proves those naysayers wrong. This is perhaps the most loyal King adaptation, bringing a tome shuddering to life that consists mostly of a woman chained to a bed, alone, in the middle of nowhere. That woman is Jesse (Carla Gugino), whose husband, Gerald (Bruce Greenwood), drives her to a peaceful retreat for a weekend of nookie and $200 steak. 
His ticker gives up and she’s left handcuffed to the bedposts with a strange dog for company… oh, and a creeping demon with red eyes that lurks in the shadows when night falls. Carla Gugino’s stunning performance piles on the layers of horror from throughout Jesse’s past, until the sting in the tail you won’t see coming.
