There’s a movie for every different mood. Sometimes you want to watch something relaxing and light so you go for a “feel good” movie like ‘Forest Gump‘. Then there are days when you need some motivation to keep going, so you end up watching inspiring sports flick like ‘Creed‘. But then there are these other days when we have a love/hate relationship with the kind of movies we’re watching. We look for the scariest and the most disturbing movies. We stay up all night to watch them and then wonder why would we scar ourselves this way, threatening our good night’s sleep for the rest of the week.
A sub-genre of horror, disturbing films offer a very different kind of escape to those who enjoy watching these. If you’re one of those people who squirm, twitch and squeal with fear but still enjoy scaring themselves with torturous flicks, then you don’t have to lurk around the deep web to look for these. Netflix has a fair share of anxiety induced disturbing movies that’ll give you the kind of scare you’re looking for. Check out the list below of the most disturbing movies on Netflix and before you press play, make sure you’re buried deep in your blankets and ready to throw up with all your lights turned on.
16. The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016)
The body of the beautiful Jane Doe is discovered by a Sheriff in the middle of a crime scene, what baffles him is how the dead body does not fit the crime scene at all. He takes the body to a coroner named Tommy Tilden to find out the apparent cause of her death. Tommy Tilden is joined by his son who is also his assistant and tries to help him uncover the mystery behind her death. As the night gets darker and darker, the pair dwells deeper and deeper into the strange and disturbing secrets of Jane Doe.
15. Se7en (1995)
Starring Brad Pitt, Morgan Freeman, and Gwenyth Paltrow, ‘Seven’ is by far one of the most gripping, inventive and disturbing films. Most cop movies have a cliched plot where the cops chase an unstable criminal, but this one is something far beyond that with extremely polished acting and deep character development. The story is about two homicide detectives trying to hunt down a psychopathic killer (Kevin Spacey) who chooses and then murders his victims based on the seven deadly sins — pride, covetousness, lust, anger, gluttony, envy, and sloth. As the two detectives get closer to hunting him down, they get closer to something very unpredictable and disturbing. By the end of the movie, you’ll be left with a feeling of absolute depression and numbness.
