You can check out some of the more obscure entries in the horror genre that were released in the past few years on Netflix. Here are just a few independent and foreign horror films that are worth seeking out if you missed them at the movies.
The Taking of Deborah Logan
A genuinely creepy movie about an old woman who is being filmed for a documentary on Alzheimer’s disease. Her strange behavior begins to seem less like Alzheimer’s and more like demonic possession. Lots of disturbing creepy old lady imagery in this one.

Beyond the Black Rainbow
A trippy Canadian sci-fi horror movie that will remind you of Stanley Kubrick’s films. Set in the 1980s, a mute girl with psychic powers is a captive at a strange research institution founded in the 1960s by the weird Dr. Arboria. What is her connection to the doctor and his past?
Here Comes the Devil
Check out this Mexican horror movie about a couple of kids who get lost in some remote caves, and start exhibiting odd behavior after they return. Their parents suspect something evil has happened to them…why don’t the kids seem like themselves anymore?
