The 20 Best Horror Movies on Netflix UK – Scary Films to Watch Right Now

The 20 Best Horror Movies on Netflix UK – Scary Films to Watch Right Now
Netflix is an ever-changing, constantly growing treasure trove of hidden gems and secret delights (here’s everything new on Netflix UK this month). Sometimes, a teeny bit too secret though.

Who hasn’t sat down to watch a horror movie and found themselves scrolling endlessly, either not being able to find something they’re in the mood for, or not really knowing what half the titles are, or if they’re any good?

We’ve scoured the full current catalogue available to watch in the UK now and picked out the best scary movies. It’s a mix of classic and new, and a range of slashers, horror-coms, mumblegore, monster movies and more to hopefully scratch that itch with ease.

We’ll keep this updated as and when titles drop in and out of the service.

This fairly loose adaptation of Adam Neville’s bestseller sees a group

‘Portal’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Ryan Merriman, Jamie Tisdale, Myk Watford, Heather Langenkamp, Reinaldo Zavarce, Najarra Townsend, Lindsay Seim, Courtney Nightingale, Yan Birch | Written by Peter Dukes, Dean Alioto | Directed by Dean Alioto

What’s that, yet Another horror film featuring ghost hunters? Surely that subject has been done to death by now… In fact it’s so played out that the idea of ghost hunters in horror has led to more horror comedies than actual horror films. However Portal sticks firmly in fear with it’s tale of Steven, an ambitious ghost hunter (Ryan Merriman), who is winning a losing battle against the falling ratings for his show Ghostseekers and his competitors Ghost Trackers – who seemingly having more money, and more clout, to produce a much more successful ghost-hunting show.

Desperate for a hit season finale Steven steals information on a haunted house, the Dalvas House, from his competitors. However the whole thing

‘Investigation 13′ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Meg Foster, Stephanie Hernandez, Patrick Flanagan, Robert Paget, William Alexander, Giordan Diaz, Jesse Ramos, Peter Aratari | Written by Rolando Vinas, Krisstian de Lara | Directed by Krisstian de Lara

With a screenplay penned by Clay Smith and re-written by Rolando Vinas and Krisstian de Lara, the latter of whom directs, Investigation 13 is the story of a group of science students who have found out how to explain paranormal activity through scientific means. They aim to show their findings to a school-board and hope to launch a parapsychology course. The thirteenth investigation takes them to Black Grove Psychiatric Asylum a place where the urban legend of “The Mole Man” exists, an ex-patient of the asylum who many think still resides within the place.

The story sounded interesting enough, and I think there are times when an asylum can be a perfect location for a horror movie. I mean, Session 9 is

Popcorn Frights 2019 Horror Films to Keep On Your Radar This Halloween Season (and Beyond)

  • DailyDead
Bringing a tidal wave of horror onto the shores of South Florida, the fifth annual Popcorn Frights Film Festival sliced its way into Savor Cinema back in August for nine days of eclectic scares and insightful conversations. Co-founded by Marc Ferman and Igor Shteyrenberg, this year’s Popcorn Frights featured more than 70 films (both feature-length and short form) from around the globe, including 10 world premieres of diverse stories ranging from a comic book serial killer to a dog-sized spider and new twists on Frankenstein. This year’s Popcorn Frights proved that horror has found a loving, long-term home in South Florida, and Daily Dead was lucky enough to attend the festival (and serve on its jury). With many of the festival’s films now being released in theaters and on VOD, we thought this would be a good time to look back at the week of killer screenings that left

Frightfest 2019: ‘Spiral’ Review

  • Nerdly
Stars: Jeffrey Bowyer-Chapman, Lochlyn Munro, Ari Cohen, Chandra West, Jennifer Laporte, David LeReaney | Written by Colin Minihan, John Poliquin | Directed by Kurtis David Harder

It’s 1995 and a same-sex couple move to a small town so they can enjoy a better quality of life and raise their 16 year-old daughter with the best social values. But nothing is as it seems in their picturesque neighbourhood. And when Malik sees the folks next door throwing a very strange party, something very shocking has got to give.

Billed by many as the gay equivalent of Get Out, I found Spiral to be more of an interesting look into the pressure of being minority – both sexually and racially – and the toll being “different” can have on mental health than That film. For that’s what, for the most part Spiral presents us with: a man, broken by a hate crime of the past, trying

Interview: Writer/Director Colin Minihan and Co-Star Brittany Allen Discuss Unconventional Casting & Filming in Muskoka for What Keeps You Alive

What if you found out that the person you married isn't who you thought they were? Filmmaker Colin Minihan explores that harrowing question in his new movie, What Keeps You Alive, which follows a violent one-year anniversary between Jules (Brittany Allen) and Jackie (Hannah Emily Anderson).

With IFC Midnight releasing What Keeps You Alive in Us theaters and on VOD platforms beginning August 24th, Daily Dead recently caught up with Minihan and co-star Allen to discuss the unconventional casting process for the role of Jackie (which was originally intended to be a male character), filming near Allen's family's cottage, and the movie's exploration of how well you can really know the one you love the most.

Colin, because I know you wrote and directed this movie, where did you come up with the idea for this?

Q&A: Trevor Henderson Discusses the Found Footage Style of His Fascinating Horror Artwork

If you’re on Twitter and love horror, there’s a high chance you’re familiar with the works of Trevor Henderson, a digital artist who’s been making waves with his inspired, grotesque bits of faux found footage art that contrasts photos of seemingly natural locations with horrifying beasts and otherworldly scenarios. It’s fresh, it’s weird, and it’s constantly fascinating—the sort of art that makes me want, no, need to pick the brain of the artist. So, I got in touch with Trevor to ask him about the appeal of found footage, creating strange monsters, and what’s next for him and his work.

I've seen a lot of horror art in my time, but your work is the first I've seen that consistently takes the form of faux found footage. What is it that draws you to found footage?
