The best horror movies on Netflix May 2017

It would seem that it is difficult to surprise us with new stories, as well as new heroes. But still, when you start to watch the horrors, for some reason you are scared, as in childhood. And no wonder – the creators of horror films have tried for this. There are characters of these films: zombies, vampires, sea monsters, insect giants, snakes, aliens, bloodthirsty maniacs, who sharpen the knife in anticipation of another victim.

Horror is a great opportunity to get to know all these creatures if until now you had known about them. In comedies, we are forced to laugh, first of all, words and facial expressions of heroes. The militants are impressed by fights, melodramas – sad circumstances, in which this or that character fell. Horror films achieve the desired result due to special effects and naturalistic pictures. The abundance of blood, realistic torture, the expression of torture on the faces of the heroes…

If this is not enough for you, be assured: writers and directors will come up with a whole series of tense or unexpected moments for their cinema to tickle the viewers’ nerves, ask the composers to pick up the appropriate sound line – and now you are trembling with fear at the screen!
