People watch horror movies in all kinds of ways.
Some of us guys know to use them when we want a girl to cuddle up next to us (I remember trying that with The Woman in Black, and ended up being more scared than my lady companion). Many try their luck watching them to prove they’re tough, while I also know plenty of people who refuse to watch a scary movie alone; safety in numbers, I suppose.
But of course, the best way to watch horror, a genre which can sometimes be plagued by low-budget productions or horrendous acting, is to buy into it and give yourself up to the storytelling, the anxiety, and yes, even the jump scares.
No matter how you want to spend your movie night, Netflix has a great assortment of scary tales for your displeasure. With a few selections from various franchises, there are also some blockbusters and indie films worth checking out on the streaming service, too.
So, in no particular order, here are 10 horror movies available on Netflix right now that are perfect for keeping you up all night.
