If you believe in all the superstition and bad juju floating around and you’re having a quiet one in tonight, (a little too quiet, if you ask us), we’ve put together our five favourite scary movies, and it just so happens that you can watch them all on Netflix tonight.

1) The Green Room (2015)

89% on Rotten Tomatoes

An unsuccessful band witness an act of violence backstage at their middle-of-nowhere show. Stranded in the Pacific Northwest, they become targets for a gang of white supremacists, and have to use their will to protect them from danger. White-knuckled the whole way through, this is original, and wickedly fun scary movie-making at it’s best.

2) The Descent (2006)

85% on Rotten Tomatoes

The Descent follows a daring group of friends as they explore an ancient, undiscovered cave. Inevitably, they become trapped, and the group realise they are being stalked by mutant underground creatures. The harrowing situation leads the girls to turn on each other, and must escape their underground cage, all the while being hunted by bloody thirsty creatures.

3) The Babadook (2014)

98% on Rotten Tomatoes

Our very own film star Essie Davis (Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries), stars in this Australian psychological thriller. After the death of her husband, Amelia (Davis) struggles to cope with her difficult son, and tries to get him to bed by reading him the story of The Babadook. Soon after, she begins to feel a sinister presence in her own home. Seriously freaky — even the trailer will spook you.

4) The Wicker Man (1973)

90% on Rotten Tomatoes

In this U.K. classic, a haunted policeman travels to a remote Scottish island, following an anonymous letter about the disappearance of a young girl. He finds that the people of the island worship ancient gods and perform pagan rituals, including human sacrifice. With a horrifying, trapped feeling running throughout, this one is proof that the oldies can be just a terrifying. If you want the theme without the scream, we can’t recommend the 2006 version of The Wicker Man more. With Nicholas Cage starring as the policeman, it’s a terrifyingly bad remake of the original. Have you ever been even remotely scared when watching Cage in a movie? Exactly. You’ll be fine.

5) A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984)

94% on Rotten Tomatoes

We couldn’t not include this thriller movie classic. Groundbreaking in cinema at it’s time, Nightmare on Elm Street is a must-watch on the checklist of scary movies, and follows the tale of the murderous Freddy Krueger as he stalks children’s nightmares. Trust us on this one — don’t watch this before bed or you won’t want to go to sleep at all.

And if you want a movie marathon, continue your binge with:

Millenium, Honeymoon, Nightwatch, Monsters, The Sacrament, Creep, Reanimator, V/H/S, From Dusk til Dawn, Children of the Corn, The Invitation, Hostel and Blackwater.

Have a freaky Friday the 13th!
