When a few classmates avoid a tragedy, death itself decides they were supposed to die… and still will. A completely unique take on the teen slasher — well, not completely unique; there were four sequels after all! BTW, Hulu also has Final Destinations 2-4 available if you want to make a whole marathon of it. (Unfortunately not the excellent Part 5!)

The movie so nice, they made it twice! Yes, the cabin-in-the-woods classic is basically just the exact same plot as the first movie, only with more slapstick and splatter. And that makes it one of the greatest horror classics of all time! (BTW, the original is also streaming!)

What’s your favorite scary movie? If it’s the Scream franchise, you’re in luck! Netflix just completed the set with the all-important Part II!

Child’s Play

Child's Play Scary Movies 2019
(c) United Artists/YouTube

Slasher, Family Frights

Pumpkinhead Scary Movies 2019
(c) United Artists/Prime Video

It may have a silly name, but this unique horror tale is no joke! Calling on the help of a revenge demon may seem like a good idea, but in true fairy tale fashion — to go along with the film’s dream-like aesthetic — it turns out to be a real lesson… for whoever is left alive that is.

Agh! Real Monsters!

Streaming on Prime Video and HULU.

Velvet Buzzsaw

Velvet Buzzsaw Scary Movies 2019

When a deceased painter’s hidden work is discovered by the art world, it makes an instant splash — a sticky, red one. This unique blend of high-minded art world satire and mindless gorefest won’t be for everyone, but if you ever wanted to watch a nude, bisexual Jake Gyllenhaal freak out (and who doesn’t??), it is an absolute must-see!

Crazzzy, Mind Games

Streaming on Netflix.


Suspiria Scary Movies 2019
(c) Amazon

It’s rare a remake gives the original a run for its money, but 2018’s high-minded Suspiria turns the witchcraft (by way of ballet) classic completely on its head, adding metaphor while still delivering gore. Oh, and there are THREE Tilda Swinton performances, which we’re pretty sure is a record.

Annihilation scary movies 2019
