The odds are pretty good that you’ll have some downtime today.
To get your mind off the sci-fi-esque narrative unfolding outside, what better way to celebrate the eerie holiday than curling up with some good old-fashioned horror flicks.
These are 6 awesome horror films that you can stream on Netflix for Friday the 13th.
Bird Box (2018)
Did the mixed reviews lead you to skip Netflix’s 2018 original the first go-around? Now’s your chance to watch the sensory-depraved thriller starring Sandra Bullock as a woman who survives the apocalypse.
Child’s Play (1988)
Chucky really is our friend to the end. If you’re a horror junkie, you’re no doubt excited for the TV reboot of the classic franchise starring your favorite gruffy-voiced serial killer doll that’s slated to come this year from Syfy. Brush up on the fundamentals today with the 1988 film that started it all.
The Craft (1996)
This 1996 flick is the perfect mesh of moody ’90s-era spooky films and melodramatic teeny bopper fun. A modest hit in when it was first released, watch this cult movie about a girl with a telekinetic gift who befriends a group of wannabe witches when she transfers to a new high school.
Green Room (2015)
Although “Green Room” isn’t a horror in the supernatural sense, the monsters are real in this movie about a touring punk band that plays a gig at a small show populated by violent Nazis. There’s not a second in this suspenseful thriller where you won’t be on the edge of your seat.
Rosemary’s Baby (1968)
This classic, unpredictable motherly nightmare stars Mia Farrow as a pregnant mom-to-be who noticed very strange things unfolding around her as she awaits the birth of her baby. A fun-to-watch classic for its suspensefully unraveling plot, dark humor, and glimpses of late-’60s high-society New York.
The Witch (2015)
Based on actual testimony from the Salem witch trials, this A24 production gets an A+ for the verisimilitude of its old-timey dialogue and the fear colonials must have felt when they were convinced of being in the presence of witches.
