Netflix has numerous titles to choose from, especially when it comes to the horror genre. Finding the right scary movie to watch can be a challenge, but there are plenty of standout, realistic horror films available to stream. For fans who prefer their scares to be more grounded in reality, “Carriers” and “It Comes at Night” are two horror films that take place during deadly global outbreaks. And those who want something less specific, but still “realistic” — that is, devoid of supernatural happenings and featuring plausible real-life scenarios — can watch “Hush,” which focuses on a deaf woman hunted by a terrifying killer in a home invasion, or “Green Room,” which follows a young punk band fighting for their life after inadvertently rousing the ire of some bloodthirsty Neo-Nazis. Here are seven realistic horror movies to watch on Netflix right now.
Note: Numerous Netflix titles drop off the service monthly, so the availability of titles below may change. Insider has many movie and TV show lists to keep you occupied. You can read them all here.
