Friday the 13th is a gift bestowed upon all of us horror fans once, sometimes multiple times a year. It’s an excuse to get spooky, and have an extra mini-Halloween experience if you choose! I would wager the vast majority of us have Netflix now days, whether we pay for it ourselves, or have a profile on an account that somebody else pays for (thanks mom!). With that being said, I thought it would be fun to compile a list of horror films available right now on Netflix for your Friday the 13th viewing pleasure.
The Exorcist – This gem from the early 70’s is a fright night must. When a young girl is possessed by a demon, two priests work to try and free the evil from her body. I’d avoid eating pea soup while watching this one.
From Dusk Till Dawn – Robert Rodriguez directed this cult vampire film that stars Quentin Tarantino and George Clooney. Two bank robbing brothers take hostages and cross the border to Mexico, ending up in a bar that has more then they bargained for.
Dark Skies – Receiving 4/5 stars on Netflix, this sci-fi thriller is one of the highest rated horror movies on the app. When a charming and peaceful suburban family is terrorized by a seemingly deadly alien threat, they do everything they can to keep their children safe.
Re-Animator – What would a horror movie marathon be without a campy cult classic like this one? The H.P. Lovecraft story adaptation brings you a true mad scientist who develops a serum that can bring back the dead.
Children of the Corn – Stephen King’s imagination is brought to the big screen with this 1984 classic. A couple stumbles into a terrifying town filled with murderous children who slay all of the adults as commanded by their leader.
This is just a few horror films that are worthy of any horror movie marathon. Sadly, the Friday the 13th movies themselves aren’t available on Netflix, but there are plenty of creepy classics to keep you on the edge of your seat. Let me know what your favorite scary flick on Netflix is!
