   Halloween is coming and it’s coming fast, and Netflix has been a great help with a variety of horror movies available to watch. But sometimes viewers watch the same movies and easily get frustrated trying to find something new to watch. Here are some of the most unknown horror/Halloween movies on Netflix – the most creepy movies that are worthy to watch.

For viewers who have a love for action packed horror The Invitation is just for them. With scenes of punching and fighting this movie is about a man who gets invited to his ex wife’s home for dinner. When he starts to suspect a dinner is not all she had planned, tensions start to rise. Directed by Karyn Kusama and with a 88% on Rotten Tomatoes, the psychological twister is a great watch.


Now for those looking for some gory glory, the Saw movies are great, but they can get a little tiring so here is a recommendation for something new and fresh. The Eyes of My Mother is about a young woman who witnessed the tragic event of her mother’s death as a young child and as she grows older, she starts to experience some unsettling desires. The Eyes of My Mother changes the game for most horror movies, with the feeling of an American Gothic, this film not only shows the grotesque images but also in an artistic and satisfying sort of way, and this is what makes the movie so unsettling. Directed by Nicolis Pesce, this movie has a 78% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

For those who are afraid of gore or intense scenes but still want to watch somewhat scary, The Witch is a perfect match for you. Being banned from their village, a pilgrim family sets out on their own to find a place to settle down but when they do, the family gets plagued with misfortune. As well as The Eyes of My Mother, The Witch brings out the suspense and artful taste of what mystery can do to the horror genre. Directed by Robert Eggers and with a 90% on Rotten Tomatoes, the historical horror is good for those with sensitive stomachs.


The last movie is the perfect mix of unsettling, action packed, and gory details in the horror genre. Hush is about a deaf writer relaxing in her home secluded from the town. She realizes she forgot to let her cat back into the house, so she leaves the back door open. Only to find out that was her worst mistake because an intruder is trying to get into her house and soon its a chase of life or death. This film isn’t as artistically appealing as much of the others but still worthy of being a fantastic horror as it does have the violence and suspense everyone wants to see in these movies. Directed by Mike Flanagan and with a 92% on Rotten Tomatoes.

These are just some of the films worthy of watching for Halloween but unfortunately do not get enough attention from the public With the spitefully artistic scenes to the action packed chases they all are scary enough to enjoy by everyone. For those who don’t have weak stomachs of course but others who enjoy the thrill of a scary movie.
