Top 10 Best Netflix Original Horror Movies You MUST Watch Today!

Netflix is working hard to enhance their horror movie lineup and is doing a great job by making Netflix original horror movies worth watching. These horror films below combine some great talent from Masters of Horror including but not limited to Stephen King, Mike Flanagan, and Gareth Evans. We could not include the recent Netflix original The Haunting of Hill House because it is a TV series with 10 episodes, sorry. I see the future of Netflix Originals following the major success of The Haunting of Hill House in their future horror film lineups. Check out the full list below, and I hope to update this list in the upcoming year with some new horror films.
