Knock knock. Who’s there?

A new month is upon us and that means one very important thing to users of Netflix – new movies debut for streaming. April is a particularly good month for horror fans, with a lot of good new movies coming. But let’s be honest, Netflix isn’t great about letting you know what’s actually new on the site and app. This is even truer for the new horror movies that hit the site. Unless it’s a big hit, you might miss some horror films that sneak through.

We want to help you out. So we’ve highlighted the new horror films that made the cut. Check it out:

The Babadook (April 14th)

Australian film The Babadook, released last year, is about a mother, her troubled son, and a monster from a children’s book that turns out to be very real. It didn’t do so great in the box office, but it got a lot of hype. Most critics considered it to be the best horror movie of 2014, and a lot of people were upset that it wasn’t nominated at the Oscars. Want to find out if you agree or not? In a few weeks that will be easier than ever.

Starry Eyes (April 3)

Starry Eyes is another movie from 2014 that got great reviews. This one’s about a struggling actress who ends up being recruited by a shadowy Hollywood cult. It’s a great idea that I haven’t seen before, it’s creepy, and the ending is bloody as hell.

The Quiet Ones (April 3)

The Quiet Ones, also released in 2014, is much closer to a more traditional horror movie. Based on a true story, it’s about a professor and students trying to prove that the supernatural is not real, but just a projection of the human psyche. Obviously, this is a terrible idea, and the experiment goes horribly wrong. Remember, kids: obsession and the supernatural don’t mix.

The Awakening

This one is a ghost story from 2011. It’s atmospheric and subtle, kind of like The Sixth Sense. Set in England after World War I, it’s about a skeptical author with a dark past that haunts her.

But that isn’t every horror title – there are too many to feature in one article. So here are the rest of the releases, with the horror titles in bold.

About The Author

I saw 'Mars Attacks!' in theaters when I was five. I still think it's the greatest horror movie for five year olds ever made.
