Halloween might be over, but with the cold winter months forcing many people to spend their nights indoors, there has never been a better time to watch some scary movies. Thanks to popular streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and HBO Max, it has never been easier to access some of the scariest movies from around the world. Whether you’re stuck inside on a snowy evening or taking a break from an upcoming project while you wait to secure documents from Rapid Permits and Engineering, here are some of the scariest movies you can stream right now to help pass the time.
1. Creep (Netflix)
Creep is a cult classic indie horror film that tells the story of a terminal cancer patient who hired a filmmaker to follow him throughout his daily life in an attempt to make a documentary for his unborn son. While the film might be fairly predictable for some more serious fans of horror, there is no denying that the movie is deeply unsettling and will leave viewers on the edge of their seats the entire time.
2. The Conjuring (HBO Max)
The Conjuring franchise revolutinized the modern genre of horror. Following Ed and Lorraine Warren, real life paranormal experts who solved hundreds of cases of hauntings and exorcisms before their deaths, The Conjuring tells the story of a family dealing with paranormal activity in their home that ultimately threatens their lives. While the entire franchise is streaming on HBO Max, many critics consider the first film to be the best and scariest movie in the series.
3. Fresh (Hulu)
Equal parts romantic comedy and terrifying horror film, Fresh follows a young woman as she meets, falls in love with, and is eventually abducted by a man she met at a local supermarket who turns out to be a cannibal. This terrifying film is not for the faint of heart (or weak of stomach), but has been praised by critics and horror fans alike as one of the best recent horror films.
4. Barbarian (HBO Max)
Praised by critics as one of the best modern horror films of all time and widely considered to be the scariest movie of 2022, Barbarian tells the story of a double-booked Airbnb that leads to a terrifying sequence of events. Full of twists and turns that will leave the audience on the edge of their seats until the credits roll.
5. Sinister (Netflix)
Sinister is one of the most unsettling horror films of the last decade. Following a jaded true crime writer looking to write his next big hit, this film features terrifying imagery and clever jump scares to leave viewers unnerved for the film’s entire run time.
