Netflix seems to have the hot hand right now when it comes to new horror movie releases on its platform. So many that have been released in recent weeks — from the Fear Street trilogy to the Italian-language A Classic Horror Story — have immediately rocketed to the pinnacle of the streamer’s Top 10 movie ranking. Some of the new titles have been on the smaller-scale, indie-feeling side of things. We’d put something like Aftermath, about the terror experienced by a young couple after they move into their dream home, in this category. Meanwhile, others have been blockbuster material, like Army of the Dead. With all of this in mind, we’d like to offer a closer look at some of the best horror movies on Netflix available to stream right now.

If you’re a fan of the genre, you’ll definitely want to check out some of these if you haven’t already. Especially because it seems like Netflix isn’t slowing down anytime soon, in terms of adding new selections from the genre to its already vast catalog.
