We’re not gonna lie; we love a good horror movie. The anticipation of what is going to happen teamed with the adrenaline pumping through our bodies is a feeling like no other. Are we right? If you’re with us and looking for the next scare then be warned; there are some horror films Netflix viewers were too scared to finish. You might be tempted to give them a go, but don’t say we didn’t warn you.
You can get easily confused, as there are two movies on Netflix called Veronica, both of them are Spanish-speaking thrillers that came out in the same year. However, while the first one is about a therapist in a secluded house in the woods, the other gained much more attention from the audience. It’s about a young teenage girl from a broken family that mysterious things keep happening to her. We can’t reveal more because of spoilers, but it will be hard for you to finish this movie.
Here we have a 2015 horror that started as a group of three friends taking a trip to Jerusalem to learn all about zombies and religious mythology, yet somehow ends up unearthing an exorcism from way back in 1972. Cue plenty of demonic takeovers teamed with the group of friends trying to make it out of the city and to safety, and you have JeruZalem. To top it off, the majority of the film is filmed from one of the leads’ point of view which only adds to the tension.
You know a film is probably going to be scary when it’s based on a true story. In steps Cabin Fever. The movie follows the tale of friends who rent a cabin deep in the woods to celebrate graduating college. It’s almost the perfect start to any good horror film. However, things soon go south after the one of the group refuses to help a hermit they have accidentally shot as they soon discover they have contracted a deadly virus. Will they be able to stop it all before it spreads? They don’t have long to find out.
This movie all starts with an earthquake at the bottom of a small lake but soon turns into a school of piranha escaping into the waters of the world. Of course, this is all right at the beginning of spring break when anyone and everyone will be heading to the lakes to cool down and party. The local law enforcement is forced to make a tough decision about whether to close the lake and miss out on income or let the party goers do their thing. It can only end one way. We’re not sure water-based horror movies have ever had a happy ending, have they?
Okay, maybe these horror films Netflix viewers were too scared to finish might be a bit too much for us to handle after all. Not unless we have a huge couch and bowl of popcorn to hide behind before the role of the opening credits.
