    Horror movies on Netflix

    For a while now I feel like I've been really scraping the bottom of the barrel when I go looking for horror movies on Netflix. Like after I scroll past all the ones I've already watched, suddenly I'm in a barren wasteland of low budgets and terrible scripts.

    So: what are some good horror gems on Netflix? I'll list a few that I've seen, as I think of them, but I'm open to any suggestions. If you're not sure if it's horror, suggest it anyway. Thrillers are fine too.

    in the same boat. I like sci-fi movies but most are low budget sci-fi horror movies with the same plot and horrible acting. Typically involving a team of scientists/soldiers/civilians, etc invading an island/secret lab/underground base and being picked off one by one by some alien/monster/robot/giant animal.

    I'm a sucker for sci-fi, but yeah...that genre's in even worse shape than horror.

    most of the time it is the same genre. Most "sci-fi" has typically been "horror" movies dressed up in spacesuits or tech.

    You guys have way more choice than we do.

    And half of the new horror/sci-fi movies lately are foreign. Might be really good, but I can't understand them.

    Pretty slim pickings, indeed.

    I find that the Netflix Original Movies are generally actually pretty good compared to the "regular" movies they have on there. Maybe they don't want their name associated with garbage. Their TV shows are usually pretty good too. Like Stranger Things.

    Some are good. We don't like Stranger Things.

    yeah generally I don't like horror movies either. There are a few I liked but then they usually ruin it by making a ton of sequels.

    I do like some tv series in the horror genre like The Walking Dead and Stranger Things (previously mentioned)

    As a fan of the old Archie comics, I also refuse to watch the new Riverdale series.
