What scares you the most? Is it the Nun in the ‘Conjuring’ series, or Ed Kemper from ‘Mindhunter’? Or does a lizard or a spider do the trick for you? No judgement! Some things are inherently creepy! Despite scaring us out of our wits and turning us into a coward who is afraid to go to the bathroom after watching a film, horror genre continues to be a favourite amongst the audience. If you are one of those people who are into such things, then forget movies, these documentaries and docuseries will rattle your soul and scare you so that the next horror film will be a joy ride in comparison. Here’s the list of really good scary documentary movies on Netflix that are available to stream right now:
16. Haunted (2018)
Sitting around a campfire, telling horror stories to each other is something that all of us have attempted to do, at least once. While some allowed their imagination to run wild, there were a select few who claimed that theirs was a true story, that it had happened to someone who never lived to tell the tale! Yes, it can be a bit difficult to believe the authenticity of “true” horror stories. And, honestly, ‘Haunted’ doesn’t try to authenticate any, either. However, if you want some scary stories told to you in the dark, then this is a perfect watch for you.
15. Monster: The Josef Fritzl Story (2010)
If you have seen ‘Room’, the film that won Brie Larson the Academy Award for Best Actress’, then you have an idea what captivity like that can do to a person. ‘Monster: The Josef Fritzl Story’ is somewhat like that, but exponentially worse and highly unimaginable. Josef Fritzl held his 18-year-old daughter Elisabeth as a captive in his house’s basement where he had prepared a special chamber for her. Then, for 24 years, he tortured and raped her, and bore seven children with her. Unbelievable, right? How can a father do this to his own daughter? Watch this documentary and be thankful for the normal family that you have. No matter how much you fight with each other, you are not as unfortunate as Elisabeth.
14. The Devil and Father Amorth (2017)
