Some psychologists even agree that films and their characters can serve as escape valves to relieve the fears and tensions of daily life. So, why not do yourself a favor and rummage through our top picks of the best horror movies currently available on Netflix.

9659004] Why It Worth a Watch:
It would not be cricket to spoil the killer twist, but suffice to say that Hitch provides a great explanation for the psychotic tendencies shown on screen.

Why It's Worth a Watch: This highly underrated classic is best served with a large portion of salt, but your popcorn works great as an impressively staged dose of cheesy sci-fi fun. And for this author, it is probably one of the best titles of Tobe Hooper.

Who's in it? Simon Pegg and Nick Frost Lead a Killer Cast

Why It's Worth a Watch: It's no easy task to combine comedy and horror in a neat little package, but Edgar Wright offers a harsh homage and self-conscious parody without ever getting into parody areas.

Who is in it? John Jarratt, a mercury horror icon.

Why It Worth a Watch: Since the release of this first movie, Mick Taylor has become something of a horror totem. In the first part, he frightened us and then proved to the audience in Wolf Creek 2 as well as in the subsequent first two seasons of the successful spin-off series that he had no intention of following in the footsteps of Chucky and Freddy , Instead, Mick was just as disturbing and menacing, but with an increasingly sickly sense of humor and a keener mind than his machete.

It breathes new life into the decaying cliché-infused zombie genre with its eye-opening realism and uses the "healed" zombies as a metaphor to explore issues such as guilt and forgiveness.

For fans of: 28 days later 28 weeks later and the aforementioned voracious

Caliber (2018)
