Best horror movies on Netflix

Whether you want to take a break from the holiday cheer with something terrifying or you’re just one of those people who loves watching horror movies all year, here are the 10 best horror movies coming to Netflix in December 2021.

Final Destination movies

We’re excited to kick off this list with three staple films from the Final Destination franchise. While never critically acclaimed, these movies still have a fanbase, given their outlandish premise. Plus, they tend to be entertaining to watch. Only three films from the five-film series are streaming on Netflix (for now). Luckily, you don’t really need to watch them all in order to get the gist.

  • Final Destination 3 (2006) – Death returns to pick off more teens in one of the most entertaining entries into the series (this movie features the infamous tanning bed scene).
  • The Final Destination (2009) – Despite the name, this was the fourth film, and it features the ridiculous race-car crash opening sequence, the pool death and the escalator death.
  • Final Destination 5 (2011) – Death returns to pick off the final survivors. For now, this is the last movie in the series and starts with the bridge premonition. It also contains the LASIK eye surgery death.

Pet Sematary (1989)

The original Pet Sematary adaptation is now available to watch on Netflix. Considered one of the scariest Stephen King books and movies, watch this horror classic about pets coming back from the dead and find out why people love Church the cat so much.

Premonition (2007)

This supernatural thriller starring Sandra Bullock centers on a woman who finds out her husband died in a car accident. But somehow, when she wakes up the next day, he’s alive and well.

The Fourth Kind (2009)

The Fourth Kind is one of those movies that people say either terrified them or they found it boring. It’s a psychological sci-fi horror billed as a “true story” revolving around a series of disappearances around Nome, Alaska. Dr. Abigail Tyler (Milla Jovovich) could be on the verge of blowing the unsolved cases wide open when she finds evidence of alien abductions.

Tremors (1990)

Apart from Friday the 13th, the other noted horror movie starring Kevin Bacon is the cult ’90s monster movie Tremors. Forget Dune, Tremors has some of the creepiest worm monsters on film. Bacon and Fred Ward star as small-town residents Val McKee and Earl Bassett who intend to skip town, but before they can leave, they discover a series of mysterious deaths linked to unnatural seismology readings.

The Whole Truth (2021)

New to Netflix this month is the original Thai horror film The Whole Truth about a pair of siblings who stumble upon a strange hole in the wall of their grandparent’s home. This discovery leads to a series of horrifying incidents that reveal sinister secrets.

Two (2021)

Another new Netflix Original coming out on December 10 is Two. Billed as an arthouse horror film, Two follows two people who wake up and find out someone has sewn their abdomens together.

The Guardian / Thiên Than Ho Menh (2021)

Releasing December 16, The Guardian is a Vietnamese horror movie revolving around a backup singer who finds herself living a parallel life after the shocking suicide of a young pop star. But is she being helped by occult forces?
