With Halloween just around the corner, Mental Floss has compiled this list of the 11 best horror movies streaming on Netflix right now. Here they are:

  1. Scream (1996). Screenwriter Kevin Williamson and director Wes Craven ushered in the era of the meta horror film with this slasher entry about the “Ghostface Killer” targeting a group of self-aware teens who try to survive using what they know about horror movie tropes.
  2. The Witch (2015). This tale of a 1630s outcast Puritan family troubled by paranormal activity tends to be divisive.
  3. The Sixth Sense (1999). Bruce Willis portrays a child psychologist treating a boy (Haley Joel Osment) who claims to see ghosts. The third-act twist will only help you better appreciate Shyamalan’s sleight-of-hand.
  4. Green Room (2015). When a punk band plays a gig in the middle of nowhere, they’re dismayed to discover that all roads lead to a murdering, marauding group of neo-Nazis led by Patrick Stewart.
  5. Train to Busan (2016). A workaholic father and his daughter board a train bound for one of the few territories in South Korea not occupied by zombies.
  6. Carrie (1976). Stephen King’s debut novel gets a terrifying adaptation from Brian De Palma that stars Sissy Spacek as Carrie White, an ostracized teenager is having trouble fitting in at school.
  7. The Autopsy of Jane Doe (2016). A small-town coroner and his son perform what they believe is a routine autopsy on an unidentified female body. Once the exam begins, the corpse begins to reveal an increasingly disturbing series of secrets.
  8. The Conjuring (2013). While the real-life exploits of paranormal ghost hunters the Warrens (played here by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) may be in question, this retelling of one of their famous cases is a roller coaster ride.
  9. Emelie (2016). A couple celebrates their wedding anniversary by inviting a babysitter named Anna to look after their three kids while they go out to dinner. Unfortunately, Anna isn’t really Anna, and her motivations go far beyond picking up a few dollars.
  10. Gerald’s Game (2017). A romantic weekend retreat with her husband turns into a claustrophobic struggle for survival for a woman (Carla Gugino), after he drops dead and she’s left handcuffed to their bed.
  11. The Invitation (2015). This thriller follows a man who is invited to his ex’s dinner party, which takes a turn for the weird.
