From horror thrillers to comedies, documentaries, and all-time classics, the streaming giant has it all. So with all that said now, here’s the list of really good horror TV shows on Netflix that are available to stream right now.
20. The Haunting of Hill House (2018)
Dysfunctional families, trauma in the form of eerie manifestations, and spooky spirits trapped within the walls of a huge mansion – ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ seamlessly manages to capture these elements of horror in this supernatural show based on Shirley Jackson’s book of the same name. The story follows the Crain family – parents Hugh and Olivia and their children, Steven, Shirley, Theodora, Luke, and Nell who move into Hill House in 1992 to remodel it and then sell it so as to build their own dream home. However, things soon take a turn for the worse when the family experiences increasing paranormal activities in the form of banging walls, unexpected repairs, ceaseless rains, strange noises, and ghostly apparitions. Soon, they face a sudden, tragic loss and are forced to flee the house.
The show uses the format of flashbacks to focus on one Crain sibling at a time and details on how the house had impacted them in the past and still does in the present. After another tragic loss, the siblings are forced to gather again and face their fears head-on in a last attempt to confront Hill House and its hold over their lives. ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ had introduced one of the scariest ghosts in the history of horror. The Bent Neck Lady is something similar to our worst nightmares, something we would never want to face. So, if you really want a dose of good scares and several sleepless nights, this show is for you. You can watch this series here.
19. Haunted (2018)
If you have a knack for getting a real-time view into the world of paranormal activities, then go for ‘Haunted’. It is a documented anthology, featuring true horror stories narrated by people who had actually faced such incidents. Some of the tales revolve around popular supernatural movies based on true facts, while others tell events without much solid evidence to back up their claims. For example, one incident is about an individual who faces a near-death experience and another is about her serial killer parents. Whatever be the true facts behind these stories, the show still makes for an interesting watch, leading to its inclusion on this list. You can watch this series here.
