Overlooked Horror on Netflix

Netflix is great for TV series but after having it for a long time it can be hard to find good quality, entertaining movies. A lot of good/decent films can definitely be overlooked because lets be honest, sometimes Netflix is pretty hit and miss. I'm going to tell you about the 5 horror movies that I almost didn't watch, but glad that I did!


American Mary

A medical student who's piling up debt jumps at the chance when she's offered a lucrative opportunity to perform extreme body-modification surgeries.

This is probably one of the more well-known films of this group. Surprisingly I had never really heard anything about it before Netflix. One night as I was trying to find a movie that could serve as decent background noise I chose this one and went about my business. However, I noticed I kept stopping to watch the movie. It's a pretty dark and gory movie but I find it pretty unique concept for a film. If you enjoy gore and weird movies I think you would probably like this!

Dead End

Deadly consequences arise when Frank and his wife opt for an unfamiliar route through the forest and stop to pick up a mysterious hitchhiker.

I had actually never heard of this movie until a few months ago. Someone said it was a very creepy movie that is way underrated. I didn't really expect it to be scary but after watching it I was pleasantly surprised. Dead End is an EXTREMELY eerie movie in my opinion. There aren't really any jump scares or monsters, the atmosphere and the characters really make it quite terrifying. Even though it is horror and a lot of awful things happen it's not 100% serious either, but I like that it's still pretty creepy. The only place I can really find it is on Netflix, I definitely recommend checking it out!


V/H/S

When a group of petty crooks goes in search of a rare VHS tape, they come upon a corpse surrounded by stacks of horrific and bizarre videos.

I had heard a LOT about this movie online, mostly on Tumblr. Everyone was saying how scary it was and after seeing tons of screen shots I had to finally see it! I'm not a big fan of the whole "filming with a home video camera" that a lot of horror movies are doing these days but I thought I'd give it a chance anyway. I thought it was going to be one long story, but it's actually split up into multiple different stories containing multiple creatures and murders. It's a very eerie and creepy film that I actually really enjoyed. It's not a movie that I could watch multiple times but I think it's definitely worth watching.

Grave Encounters
The stars of a paranormal-investigation TV show spend the night in a derelict hospital, hoping to uncover what's been going bump in the night.

This was another movie I had heard a lot about online. But it was, once again, a movie filmed on video cameras and I wasn't too eager to watch. Boredom got the best of me one night so I clicked on it and I ended up really enjoying it! It was pretty scary movie! There was a couple of jump-worthy moments and overall was definitely an interesting movie to watch.



 Absentia

Seven years after her husband goes missing, Tricia almost has him declared dead -- but now she suspects a sinister force caused his disappearance. 

Absentia was probably my least favorite on the list but I still feel like it's worth mentioning. It was a very odd movie and the way the filmed it was pretty different to me and I'm not sure that I really liked it. But it was definitely creepy at times and had an eerie "alien abduction" feel to it. I thought it was a pretty decent horror film though overall!



Have you seen any of these films? What did you think about them? What are some of your favorite overlooked horror movies on Netflix?

  7. I've seen all of these, and American Mary is definitely one of my favorites for some reason. I know it's not really scary, but something about the atmosphere of it (and Katherine Isabelle haha) just really makes me crave it every time I'm in a movie slump.

  8. I really want to watch VHS because I've heard great things about it! One of my favorite horror movies ever is the human centipede (the first one, not the second one)!

  13. I've watched all of these except American Mary. The blurb turned me off but it's in my list so maybe I'll give it a go. I liked Dead End and VHS but wasn't crazy about Grave Encounters,the first or the second one. It's been a while since I watched Absentia but I do recall liking something about it.
    I recently watched these again - Mulberry Street, Identity, House Hunting, The Ward, Beneath the Darkness, Unearthed, Wicked Little Things and An American Haunting, and Black Death.
