The Best Horror Movies on Netflix Canada

I think the titles below are the best horror movies currently available on Netflix Canada!

(Listed in alphabetical order.)

Antibirth (2016)

Average Rating: 5.3/10
Reviews Counted: 28
Fresh: 18
Rotten: 10
I adore Natasha Lyonne and Chloë Sevigny and having kids scares me … so naturally I love this horror film!

Army of Darkness (1992)

Average Rating: 6.9/10
Reviews Counted: 47
Fresh: 34
Rotten: 13
This is Sam Raimi’s third film in his The Evil Dead trilogy. Just like the others, Bruce Campbell is the star of this film and it is filled with action, screams and laughs!

Beyond The Gates (2016)

Average Rating: 6.3/10
Reviews Counted: 16
Fresh: 13
Rotten: 3
To be honest I haven’t seen this film but it is high on my to-watch list simply because Brian Orndorf ( called it “a very entertaining and mildly spooky B-movie version of Jumanji.”

Evil Dead (2013)

Average Rating: 6.1/10
Reviews Counted: 178
Fresh: 109
Rotten: 69
This remake of Sam Raimi’s 90s comedy-horror-action masterpiece “The Evil Dead” lacks the humor of Raimi’s film and wasn’t loved by critics. Still a great horror film compared to a lot of the total shit available to stream on Netflix but probably best suited to those who only dig new horror with very little in the campy vibes department.

The Fly (1986)

Average Rating: 8.3/10
Reviews Counted: 57
Fresh: 52
Rotten: 5

I think this classic David Cronenberg film is a must-watch. Definitely my favourite Jeff Goldblum film. I love how disgusting he gets in it!

Green Room (2016)

Average Rating: 7.7/10
Reviews Counted: 206
Fresh: 185
Patrick Stewart is the villain in this film and a young punk band might not get out of his club alive. Need I say more? I highly recommend this film to all traveling musicians!

The Grudge (2004)

Average Rating: 5.1/10
Reviews Counted: 157
Fresh: 61
Alright, this film hasn’t gotten a lot of good reviews but I love it … I can’t actually remember much of it but I dig it because I can remember sleeping with the lights on for weeks after I first watched it. This is another Sam Raimi movie but this one is very different than The Evil Dead trilogy.

Holiday (2016)

I actually can’t find any reviews for this film on Rotten Tomatoes but I think it is super cool. It is an anthology and the contributors include Kevin Smith. I love short horror stories told through film! Especially when one stars Seth Green.

Honeymoon (2014)

Can’t find any Rotten Tomatoe ratings for this independent horror film either. To be honest I don’t remember a lot about it but I remember feeling highly unsettled by it — which is what I’m looking for in a horror film!


Average Rating: 8.1/10
Reviews Counted: 225
Fresh: 218
Rotten: 7
This horror film lured me to the movie theatre with its trailers and soundtrack — which rarely happens! (I’m a homebody.) I think I remember being miffed about the film when I left the theatre but in hindsight, it was different and eerie and I’m into both of those things!

Lake Placid (1999)

Average Rating: 5/10
Reviews Counted: 77
Fresh: 31
Rotten: 46

This creature feature wasn’t well received by critics but it is a total 90s classic — and Betty White is in it! How could you not love it? You’d have to be a monster. 😉

Night of The Living Dead (1990)

Average Rating: 6.3/10
Reviews Counted: 31
Fresh: 21
Rotten: 10
This isn’t George A. Romero’s 1968 classic but nonetheless, if you want to watch zombies, I sure think this beats The Walking Dead! This is one of the first horror films I ever watched so it definitely has a special place in my heart.

Psycho (1998)

Average Rating: 5.2/10
Reviews Counted: 76
Fresh: 28
Rotten: 48
The original Psycho is far superior, that’s for sure but I guess I’m just a huge fan of Vince Vaughn eating candy and being super creepy — so I think this is still a must-watch.

Sharknado (2013)

Average Rating: 6.1/10
Reviews Counted: 17
Fresh: 14
Rotten: 3
Maybe the greatest film ever made … ?

What We Do In The Shadows (2014)

Average Rating: 7.8/10
Reviews Counted: 157
Fresh: 151
Rotten: 6
One of my all-time favourite films and definitely a horror comedy that will live forever. I insist you watch this one — regardless of your feelings about vampire films, as this one is like no other!

I hope you found something on this list that you think is a scream!
Happy Netflixing!!
