October means the start of the Fall season, but it also means that it’s the time of year to enjoy all the exciting, scary and spooky things that come with Halloween. I know that one of my favorite things to do during this time of year is curl up under a nice warm blanket with a big bowl of popcorn and watch horror movies with all my friends. Here are my top three horror movies you should watch on Netflix for your horror movie binge!


1.) The Conjuring

Length: 1 hour and 51 minutes

Genre: Supernatural Horror- Ghost Story

Summary: A family in New England begins to have terrifying encounters with spirits in their new home.

This pick is perfect for people looking for a modern, well-known, and truly terrifying horror movie.


2.) Hush

Length: 1 hour and 21 minutes

Genre: Slasher Thriller

Summary: A deaf writer who lives alone in the middle of the woods is attacked in her home by a masked killer.

Looking for a lesser known but still exciting thriller? Then this movie is the pick is for you.


3.) 47 Meters Down

Length: 1 hour and 29 minutes

Genre: Survival Horror

Summary: Two sisters take a trip to Mexico and end up coming face-to-face with a deadly shark.

If you want to move outside the realm of traditional scary horror movies then this is a must watch for you.
