MFF Netflix/Amazon Streaming Recomendations: Where to Find the Best Horror of the 21st Century

August 16, 2015

Hello all. Mark here.

I recently wrote about the best horror films of the 21st century and wanted to let you know where you can find some of the movies on the lists.  I searched through Amazon Prime and Netflix (sorry Hulu) and found  the films that were ranked in or around the top 50. Hopefully this makes your life easier as you navigate the black hole that is searching through streaming services looking for something to watch.

We searched Netflix for two hours and this is what we picked! We should have looked at MFF’s list about 21st century horror!

The following top 20 ranked horror flicks on the audience/critic lists offer something for everyone. If you are in the mood for Korean serial killers, pesky ghosts, yuppie murderers or creatures in the mist you are in luck! 

Sidenote: The movies with the bold font have been reviewed by MFF. Probably the greatest reviews ever.

Let the Right One In (Netflix) – A beautiful tale about a vampire in Sweden.

The Host (Amazon, Netflix) – A perfect introduction to Korean horror. If you are into creature features you will love this movie.
