Turn on all the lights and lock the front door.
And, ah, switch on the Netflix… if you dare.
According to Paul Tassi at Forbes, there are 10 movies on the streaming service that are just so goddamn terrifying people can’t finish them.
You see, last week Tassi wrote about Netflix’s latest horror offering, Veronica, a movie that’s apparently so freakin’ scary people are switching it off midway.
Veronica is Spain’s chilling answer to The Conjuring and it’s based on a creepy true crime case.
The movie tells the story of a young girl called Veronica who, along with her siblings, tries to summon her dead father’s spirit through an Ouija board.
Of course, this is a terrible idea. Instead of summoning their dad’s spirit they summon something far more sinister.
During the seance, Veronica passes out, and when she comes to, she’s a little different. She starts to notice spooky things going on around her and the supernatural activity escalates over a three day period until, well, all hell breaks loose.
The movie is freaking people out all over the world.
Tassi, however, didn’t find the movie all that scary and didn’t believe people were switching it off midway. So, Netflix sent him a list of all the similarly spooky movies that their data shows that people aren’t able to sit through.
Netflix figured out that people are scared of the movies – and don’t just hate them – because they turn them off once they’re already 70 per cent through the movie.
So get out the popcorn, here are the scariest movies on Netflix. (Luckily for the sake of your knickers, not all of them are currently streaming in Australia):
1. Cabin Fever
Cabin Fever is, you guessed it, set in a cabin in the woods.
