Netflix has got you covered with this wide range of terrifying and gruesome TV shows and movies. 

Stranger Things

Quickly rewatch all of your favourite characters – and the truly terrifying Demogorgon in the Upside down – in season 1 because October 27th (tomorrow!) season 2 is being released!

American Horror Story

We doubt you’ll see daylight with the first five seasons of American Horror Story available on Netflix for you to binge watch.

American Psycho

Christian Bale running around half naked, covered in blood and wielding a chainsaw = creepily hot. 

Bates Motel

The origin story of the Hitchcock horror classic Psycho, Bates Motel is making-of-a-murder-esque, chronicling Norman Bates slow dissension into psychosis.


The Archie Comics but very dark and a lot of murder.

The Conjuring

A modern take on the classic haunted house movie. 

The Sixth Sense

Peak Haley Joel Osment being especially cute and creepy as a kid with the ability to see dead people.
