Best of Netflix

Our favorite picks of what’s currently streaming, updated every month:

Rebecca. This is a wonderful (and spooky!) remake of the Alfred Hitchcock movie from 1940 based on a 1938 gothic Daphne du Maurier novel. It’s perfect for a date night!

#Alive — What would you do if your balcony overlooked the end of the world? This Korean horror movie is about a man trying to survive a zombie pandemic from his apartment building. You might be thankful for your own cozy quarantine when you watch this movie and realize at least Coronavirus isn’t creating fast-moving zombies.

The Haunting of Bly Manor. This is a big premiere for Netflix, season 2 of last year’s super successful The Haunting of Hill House. This season is a riff off of one of the most famous horror stories of all time, The Turn of the Screw by Henry James. It’s about a nanny who uncovers a series of disturbing secrets in her new employer’s mansion. In addition to horror, it’s being referred to as a “gothic romance” so we’ll probably get some sexy scenes as well. 

Vampires vs. The Bronx — This Netflix original stars a trio of young boys as their neighborhood becomes gentrified by vampires. It’s the perfect movie to watch with a horror lightweight who can’t handle too many scares, or as a little appetizer before something really scary. 

American Murder: The Family Next Door — If you haven’t seen this Netflix original documentary about Chris and Shannan Watts and their daughters… run, do not walk to your couch. At least, if you are a true crime fan. This doc was R-I-V-E-T-I-N-G but also terrifying. If you watch it, Chris Watts is going to be living rent free in your head for awhile. Know that.

The Babysitter: Killer Queen — This is the sequel to 2017 Netflix original The Babysitter. It was a modern camp classic about a boy (Cole) with a crush on his babysitter… who turns out to be a cold-hearted Satanic killer. You know, normal high school stuff. Equally funny and scary, Killer Queen follows up with Cole two years after the first film ends. It looks like fun!

1BR — A woman tries to start a new life in Los Angeles, but something in her apartment building isn’t right. Is it just LA or is there something wrong? This Netflix original is getting great reviews in the horror community and should definitely be on your to-watch list if it isn’t already.
