Best Movies On Netflix Lists

I, for one, understand that just one source of guidance through the minefield of disappointing Netflix movies isn’t enough. So I’ve assembled a few links to other people’s lists of great movies to watch instantly on Netflix.

Of course, I’m starting with the list on IMDB. They are one of the most credible sites for movie information. Just a heads up, though, this list is slightly outdated, so some of the movies are no longer on Netflix Instant, but I would still recommend watching them when you next get the chance.

Also, unsurprisingly, I am providing you a list of must-watch horror movies on Netflix. While I wouldn’t necessarily categorize “Let the Right One In” as horror, I do recommend that you give it a chance. Overall, this is a strong list for those of you needing your horror fix instantly satiated.

This list completely nails it. I’ve seen most of these movies myself and can vouch for them. The films I haven’t seen I’ve either heard good things about, or are a complete mystery to me. Either way, I’m using this list for my benefit as well. You’ll find this list comparable to IMDB’s list on credibility.

This one is a little different than the others. It’s a mini-Academy Awards for Netflix in my perspective. The list is the writer’s favorite movies from the listed categories like Best Documentary or, my favorite, “Best Completely-Random-But-Now-My-New-Favorite Move.” It’s worth a look.

It’s one of the most useful lists here. Maybe you didn’t want to spend money to go see a specific move and were waiting for it to show up on Netflix Instant to finally watch it at home with no extra effort made. These lists keep you updated. I will also be benefitting from this list for the very reasons I’ve just mention.

If the above mentioned links weren’t helpful enough for you, hopefully the rest of the links below can provide you with more information.

Scream Has What Modern Horror Movies Lack

Most horror movies these days are either remakes, sequels or movies made solely to cash in on the Halloween-Scary-Movie craze every year. Scream is an original story with a vibe of excitement and reverence for the history of the horror genre and it’s hard not to start feeding off of that vibe.

Scream is directed by the legend Wes Craven and written by Kevin Williamson, whose love for the classics surfaces in the references to Halloween, A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and more in the dialogue. While most movies these days, and even 17 years ago, were making the killer some unstoppable force, Williamson made the source of murder in Scream memorable with the way they behaved. He made them creepy, clever and someone you may find yourself liking by the end.

While I won’t give away who is responsible for the blood and mayhem of Scream I will say that they’re probably my favorite of any slasher film killer I’ve seen. Their phone calls, especially to their first victim, are just classic. They love terrorizing their victims emotionally just as much as they do physically. They’re much more interesting to watch than a quiet, superhuman Jason Voorhees or Michael Myers. Their reveal at the end is just a perfectly executed moment.

While Neve Campbell plays a great protagonist in Sidney Prescott, her supporting cast gets more of my praise, especially Jamie Kennedy as Randy Meeks. When he discusses who the killer may be in the video-rental store while using past horror movies as reasoning, I am hooked the entire time. Kennedy’s acting in this scene is so entertaining and is topped off with his yelling, “Everyone is a suspect!” in the middle of the store.

I demand that you watch this movie for Halloween.
