Thanks to the combination of creative storytelling, state-of-the-art visuals, and exceptional actors, Netflix has established a name for itself in the horror genre. 

A thrilling mix of suspense, terror, and the unknown greets us as we explore the shadowy reaches of the streaming behemoth’s most recent additions, demonstrating that Netflix is still a top choice for people looking for an adrenaline fix while lounging in their own homes.

New Horror Movies on Netflix

In light of this, we’ve compiled a list of the new horror movies on Netflix right now. This list is constantly changing and will give you access to both contemporary and classic horror films to satisfy your scream needs.

1. Resident Evil

Inspired by the well-known video game, Milla Jovovich and Michelle Rodriguez play the heads of a commando squad tasked with invading “the hive,” a massive subterranean genetics lab run by the formidable Umbrella Corporation. 

A deadly virus has been released there, killing everyone in the lab and raising the evil Un-dead from the dead. Before the virus poses a threat to the entire planet, the team has just three hours to shut down the lab’s supercomputer and close the establishment.

2. Choose or Die

Kayla (Iola Evans) is motivated to play an old computer game from the 1980s because she is curious about it and her family needs money. The game has a $100,000 cash prize that hasn’t been claimed yet. 

But the game is more than just a straightforward horror campaign that meets choose-your-own-adventure. It has the power to distort reality and compel Kayla to make terrible choices that have an impact on actual people. 

Kayla and her friend Isaac are compelled to play the game, so they attempt to figure out how to end it permanently because, after all, it’s just code.

3. Ouija: Origins of Evil

Unaware of the risks involved, a widowed mother and her daughters in 1967 in Los Angeles added a new stunt to boost their seance scam business: they invited an evil spirit into their home.

By 2016, Mike Flanagan had established himself as a resolute horror director, but once he took on a prequel to a critically panned film about an evil Ouija board and produced one of the scariest films of the previous ten years.

In Ouija: Origin of Evil, Elizabeth Reaser plays a fake psychic named Alice Zander, whose two daughters, Lina (Annalise Basso) and Doris (Lulu Wilson), conduct seances for paying clients in the 1970s.

4. The Babysitter

A popular cliché involves a young child developing a crush on their attractive teenage babysitter. The Babysitter, an original Netflix film, flips that notion on its head by having the attractive babysitter simultaneously be a member of a Satanic cult. 

The cult will do whatever it takes to stop Cole from disclosing their secret because they have brought their ceremony into their home. 

It’s more ridiculous, extremely bloody, and a sort of throwback to the campy horror of the 1980s than it is a “scary” horror movie.

5. Fear Street: Part One – 1994

From beginning to end, the first film in Netflix’s Fear Street trilogy is an absolute blast. This R-rated horror film, which heavily references Scream, is set in the town of Shadyville, where residents go on frequent violent killing sprees.

In this 1994 movie, which is set in the 1600s, a group of teenagers are targeted by a gang of masked killers while they attempt to understand what’s going on and how to survive it. There are rumors that it has to do with a witch’s curse from that era. 

This differs from many other slashes of its type because it revolves around a queer romance, and there’s enough comedic relief to keep this from being too scary.

6. Fear Street: Part Two – 1978

Although it would be easy to lump all the Fear Street movies together because they make such a satisfying whole, each one stands out on its own because of its distinctive style and singular effectiveness. 

Regarding the sequel, 1978 transports viewers to yet another Shadyside massacre, although this time it was influenced by the horror summer camp craze of the 1970s and 1980s. 

1978 explores the background to the Nightwing murder scene from the first movie while focusing on the tale of two estranged sisters who, despite their differences, manage to find their way back to each other.

7. Fear Street: Part Three – 1666

Fear Street Part Three: 1666, the trilogy’s last movie, wraps everything up by going back in time to the curse’s beginnings. If you’re looking for some period horror with a lot of action, this is your best option. 

It’s amazing how author-director Leigh Janiak, staying true to her horror roots, developed a unique visual language for each film. 

Accordingly, 1666 is the most sinister of the three, exploring the decaying social structure concealed by the Shadyside curse. However, Janiak maintains a firm control over her tone while never completely losing the playful vibe that makes her trilogy so enjoyable.

8. Vampires vs. The Bronx

One of those contemporary horror films with such a clean, smart take on a tired genre is the delightfully titled Vampires vs. The Bronx. You’ll wonder why it didn’t come out sooner. 

The main plot: A group of young people from a Bronx neighborhood learn that a group of bloodsucking vampires controls the real estate company that is acquiring nearby companies. The idea is brilliant since the main effect of gentrification is to rob a community of its identity. 

However, Osmany Rodriguez, the director, also has a great time doing it. There are unavoidable parallels between Stranger Things and Attack the Block (2011), but more in terms of the toughness and attitude of the latter film. 

9. Creep

Director and co-writer Patrick Bice, who starred in the 2014 original, plays a videographer hired by an odd man named Josef, who claims to have a brain tumor and wants to record a video diary for his unborn child before he passes away. 

Duplass does a fantastic job of balancing a likable and scary character, keeping you wondering about his ultimate plan the entire time. 

You know the answer by the end of the film, of course, which is why it’s so amazing that the 2017 follow-up Creep 2 does an equally good job.

10. #Alive

At the height of the pandemic, Netflix released a brand-new horror movie that was both topical and well-versed in the well-worn zombie clichés. 

The zombie survival thriller #Alive, set in the tech era, is deeply rooted in our sense of global isolation during the pandemic lockdowns. 

The action-packed Korean horror film picks up quickly, following a young man’s attempts to survive—and remain sane—in his newfound confinement after a zombie outbreak leaves him stranded in his apartment by himself.
