Finished Creep? Creep 2 does the impossible – improves on the original. A self-proclaimed serial killer (Mark Duplass, who also co-wrote the screenplay) lures videographers to his remote home in the woods, and you can guess the rest. With an absurd mix of laughs and horror, this low-budget found-footage psychological horror is a gem.


This quirky psychological horror is partly drawn from co-writer Iza Mazzei’s experience as a video cam (or webcam) girl. Yet Cam is not a documentary, following Alice Ackerman, a young camera girl who one day discovers that an exact copy of herself has taken over her show. Flashing red with the threat of technology, this unique thriller is a great feature to start playing.


Vampires Vs The Bronx (2020)

Vampires vs. The Bronx is a unique horror comedy in more ways than one. Set in New York’s Bronx, it follows young Miguel Martinez, a kid with a big heart who helps raise money for his struggling local bodega. But it’s not just the new designer clothing stores that are threatening to move: the hideous pale shorts are eating people and their property. A commentary on gentrification with goofy charm, twists and thrills, Vampires vs. the Bronx is a fresh, entertaining take on the genre.


Set in the remote Scottish Highlands, this suspenseful thriller is anything but an idyllic holiday. Get ready for an intense nightmare from which the heroes are desperate to wake up. Vaughn and Marcus go on a boyfriend-hunting weekend, but after a night of drinking, they encounter events they never could have planned. Caliber lives up to its name by providing a slick package of dark, gripping drama. Let the full force of it hit you.


A masterfully crafted horror film that quietly doubles as an STD allegory. You read that right: It Follows trains its lens on a supernatural entity that lives on the periphery, constantly stalking its prey at a slow, zombie-like pace. Our heroine, Jay (played by modern-day scream queen Mikey Monroe), is trapped in the middle of this troubling pool, confronted by a terrifying stalker. A modern classic with an original score inspired by John Carpenter.

Prior to Black Widow, Kate Shortland had made a name for herself directing excellent indie films, including Berlin Syndrome. This psychological horror film stars Teresa Palmer as Claire Havel, a young Australian who goes backpacking to Berlin to meet the man who is holding her captive in his apartment. A cat-and-mouse game ensues between the kidnapper and the captive. While occasionally slow in its limited setting, Berlin Syndrome certainly makes for a gripping thriller.


The horror that strikes… close to home. Revealing its supernatural evil through a horrific human story, His House follows Bol and Riyal, a couple of refugees from Sudan who struggle to adapt to their new life in an English town. Don’t expect a simple jump scare – His house plays with the psychological ghosts of the past, adding even more corridors of torment. A heartbreaking, powerful piece.

After watching this film, you may have a new favorite director – Yulia Dukurnova. Raw follows Justine, a vegetarian freshman in vet school who succumbs to peer pressure, eats raw meat and ends up with a rash all over her body. The film tackles questions of identity in an extremely powerful and symbolic way, and is a must-see on Netflix’s indie bench.


Spanish sci-fi horror film Platform comes from Netflix’s impressive collection of international films. Its concept story focuses on a tower that delivers food to people on each level via a platform. Those in first place get the best and richest spread, which is devoured as the platform descends through the levels. Social commentary runs throughout this dystopian thriller, which takes shocking, occasionally gruesome turns all the way to the bottom.

Warning: Nightingale depicts extreme naturalistic scenes of violence and rape. With that in mind, continue with this gruesome story and you’ll see an important piece of history rarely told on screen. The Nightingale follows a young convict seeking revenge in the Australian bush in 1825. Jennifer Kent’s second film as the mighty Babadook is a force to be reckoned with.

Blumhouse Productions

If you’re looking for more proof that the Duplass brothers are actually evil, here’s an easy sell. Patrick Brice (also director and co-writer) plays a videographer who answers a Craigslist ad for Josef (Mark Duplass), who wants to make a movie for his presumed unborn child. I usually like horror movies where the performances are nerve wracking because they are incredibly difficult to pull off. And I have to hand it to Mark Duplass. He is, in fact, very creepy.


Ahead of his flawless run of The Haunting of Hill House, Mike Flanagan brought us this clever adaptation of Stephen King’s novel Gerald’s Game. Carla Gugina is wonderful as Jessie, a woman who goes on vacation with her husband to a secluded lake house in Alabama. When Jessie finds herself handcuffed to a bed with no one to help her escape, it becomes a matter of survival and escape. Another chapter of Flanagan’s melancholy-filled horror that turns into a quiet triumph for his haunted characters.


Two movies called “The Call” were released in 2020. Watch the South Korean, time travel thriller that revolves around, yes, a phone call. Twenty-eight-year-old Seo Yeon finds a phone hidden in a closet in her childhood home. It rings – and the person who called turns out to live in the same house 20 years earlier. Last-minute twists and wild cat-and-mouse chases that twist past and present make this a must-watch.

Like some of the other titles on this list, this excellent psychological horror film subtly serves as an allegory for larger social themes such as oppression. Set in 1980s Tehran, during a series of air raids known as the War of the Cities, it follows a mother and daughter who are haunted by a mysterious evil in their home. With echoes of The Babadook as well as fresh ideas of its own, Under The Shadow is a great horror film.

One of Stephen King’s most successful film adaptations, this horror drama based on the novel 1922 is a slow-motion entry with a mesmerizing performance at its core. Thomas Jane, who you also know from Boogie Nights and 2004’s The Punisher, gives one of the best performances of his career as the proud Wilfred James, a farmer who makes the smart decision to kill his wife with the help of their teenage son . The consequences are horrifying on multiple levels (if you don’t like rats, you really won’t like them after this).
