While the streamer has more than one classic, we’ve decided that our list of five thrillers would run the gamut of horror potential. From period pieces like “We Summon the Darkness” to the teen slasher “Fear Street,” there’s something on our list for the hardcore fans of the genre and those who just like to dive into a holiday slasher to get their thrills. . chills and scares.
Also on our list is a reboot of a classic starring two CW stars. Horror is usually the genre that many actors start out in or TV celebrities end up starring in. Remember, the ’90s and 2000s were fueled by thrillers starring Hollywood’s most sought-after hunks and female leads. That’s been less the case in the decades since, but it’s still nice to see familiar faces from our favorite TV shows. There’s even a movie with a “Stranger Things” actress on this list.
So, without further ado, here are five horror movies on Netflix to watch on Friday, May 13!
