Here are the Best Horror Movies Netflix December 2013. A few good horror movies were added in early December, and hopefully we will see more as the month progresses, but for now here are the newly added crop of horror flicks you should consider adding to your Netflix Instant queue. Keep checking back here for updates as they come in!
[Updated December 29, 2013]
A good modern continuation of the classic 70's slaughterfest with updated gore and all new pretty young victims.
The Leatherface saga continues where the 1974 horror classic left off. When a young woman travels to Texas to collect her inheritance, she discovers that the brutal chainsaw-yielding madman is part of the bequest.
This is more of a teen horror movie; the scares are a bit mild, and all of the characters are of the young and dumb variety, but overall a watchable movie night.
Selma Blair, Tom Welling and Maggie Grace star in this creepy thriller about an island town off the coast of Oregon that's forced to contend with some unwelcome visitors from its past: the spirits of lepers and sailors aboard a ship that the hamlet's forefathers had steered astray on purpose. Those aboard the doomed vessel all wound up lost in the fog forever. Now, they're back from the mist, eager to exact revenge on the descendants of their murderers.
Another in the overused line of "found footage" horror movies, with a few moments worth watching. You won't love it, but I doubt that you will hate it either.
Five students retrace the steps of a group of hikers who famously perished in Russia's Ural Mountains more than five decades prior. It isn't long, however, before trouble besets the new group of adventurers in this found-footage chiller.
Christian Slater sure has fallen in the ranks of actors, but this movie is a bit more watchable than some of the crap he has made recently.
After being bombarded by a meteor shower, the crew of a lunar space station discovers the meteors harbor alien spores, which replicate and mutate into a shape-shifting predatory life form hell-bent on destroying the astronauts one by one.
You know you want to see a movie with Machete killing zombies, right?
When a street drug turns junkies into an army of zombies, Hunter finds himself with nothing but a beat-up car and a trunk full of guns and booze. Eventually, he stumbles across a small band of survivors.
Zombie Ass: Toilet of the Dead
You don't see a lot of Asian zombie flicks, and this one is just damned strange but surprisingly entertaining.
A group of teenagers, on a trip to the woods, is attacked by a crowd of zombies. Unfortunately, one of them has an unusual tie to the undead, and one of them holds the key to their escape.
Finally a new Wesley Snipes movie that is sort of like Blade. Well, not so much, but he does look like a wild west badass, and there are some undead victims. This flick looks cool, but falls a bit short in the plot.
After his nun mother makes an unholy deal to guarantee his survival, Aman grows up to become a mysterious and invincible gunman. But the deal includes a curse: Everyone Aman kills will come back to life in this zombie Western.
Nightmares in Red, White and Blue
This is an AWESOME documentary on the modern American horror film, and is absolutely a must-see for any horror fan.
Horror and sci-fi veteran Lance Henriksen narrates this fascinating look at the history of the American horror film, examining the earliest monster movies of the silent era up to the scariest modern-day masterpieces.
Resident Evil: Apocalypse
These movies tend to blend into one another, but if you like the RE series, you won't want to skip this one.
A virus is attacking the residents of Raccoon City, turning them into the undead. With the help of her colleague, Alice sets out to uncover the truth, even as she fends off an experimental weapon.
The Lair of the White Worm
This is a cult classic with a dry sense of humor and some kinky gore.
Shortly after a Scottish archaeologist digs up a wormlike skull on a country estate, enigmatic recluse Lady Sylvia Marsh, the last disciple of an ancient pagan religion, steals the artifact ... and soon local residents begin to vanish.
This movie was pretty much panned by everybody, but I honestly enjoyed it. It is no Amityville Horror, but it has solid actors and a big budget. This is a case where you should ignore the critics and give it a shot.
A professor invites three insomniacs to take part in a sleep disorder study at an eerie, isolated mansion. The unfortunate guests soon discover that their host is far more interested in the sinister mansion itself and the true nature of its horror.
The Haunting in Connecticut 2
Standard sequel fare here. If you liked the first, you'll probably like the second.
Rebooting the horrific mood of its predecessor, this sequel looses a tide of evil spirits on a happy family moving into their Georgia dream house. After a blood-drenched stranger comes to the door, daughter Heidi begins having frightening visions.
