15) Nightbreed: The Director’s Cut (1990)

Clive Barker has one of the darkest minds in horror. (It’s not currently on Netflix, but you should go out of your way to see Midnight Meat Train, based on one of his Books of Blood short stories.) This follow-up to Hellraiser, his directorial debut, was originally a bit of a mess due to rampant studio edits. Netflix has Barker’s preferred cut, which first officially surfaced in 2014, and it’s drastically better than the theatrical version, thanks to a greater emphasis on the characters.

14) V/H/S (2012) and V/H/S/2 (2013)

Found footage horror movies can be hit-or-miss, but when it works it really works. The anthology films V/H/S and V/H/S/2 pack several short films into each feature, drawing on a talent pool that includes everyone from Adam Wingard (You’re NextThe Guest) Ti West (House of the Devil) and Jason Eisener (Hobo With a Shotgun). Not all the entries are great, but the weak entries don’t last very long and the strong ones are tough to forget.
