Horror Movies on Netflix in April That Will Scare the Bejesus Out of You
The vicious news cycle can be scary, so if you need an even scarier distraction, there’s no better place to find it than in Netflix’s horror selection. The streaming service’s bone-chilling collection has everything from timeless classics to brand-new originals. Whether you’re looking for zombies, monsters, or ghosts, you’ll find your pick of the macabre on Netflix, no summoning circle required. From Child’s Play to Gerald’s Game, here are the best horror movies that you can stream on Netflix in April – they’re pretty spooky, so you might just want to keep the lamp on or watch them in broad daylight.
The Evil Dead
Sam Raimi’s low-budget horror cult film takes us to a remote cabin in the woods where a group of kids turn into zombies. If you’re hooked onto the supernatural story, the good news is that there are two more sequels to indulge in.
Mia Farrow leads this classic horror film based on the Ira Levin novel. In it, she’s a pregnant woman who begins to suspect that she might have a demon child.
Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street
Simultaneously get your musical and horror fix with Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street. Johnny Depp plays the titular character, who’s out for vengeance and enlists the help of a meat pie baker (Helena Bonham Carter) to carry out his unsavory plans.
Train to Busan
This Korean zombie movie is about a dad and daughter who take a train to Busan and find themselves amid a zombie pandemic. It’s a smart movie about class, but we also get lots of bloody, heart-racing sequences, too.
In the horror fantasy Wildling, a young girl escapes confinement under a man claiming to be her protector against the child-eating Wildling. Once in the outside world, she uncovers the terrifying truth.
The Girl With All the Gifts
Starring Glenn Close, The Girl With All the Gifts is a post-apocalyptic horror about a world overcome by a fungal disease that turns people into zombies. The only hope for the future is a group of children who get flesh cravings but are able to think for themselves.
Killer Klowns From Outer Space
Love a scary cult movie with a comedic twist? Killer Klowns From Outer Space serves up just that, with its plot revolving around a group of murderous aliens who look like creepy clowns.
