The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)
And honestly, the way Netflix discovered it is pretty clever.
Maybe too clever? I don’t know. Somehow whenever I think of numbers, it doesn’t account for those other variables — the kinds we can’t really measure. This is especially the case for the entertainment industry — particularly regarding media, such as literature, television, artwork, and of course, film.
You can’t quantify quality, basically.
One person might like this movie, and another person might hate it. So when I heard that Netflix was able to come up with the top ten scariest films they’re currently streaming based on a percentage, I wanted to take it with a grain of salt.
I, however, was pleased to see that there IS some truth to this idea that Netflix came up with!
After all, it gave rise to the phenomenon of one recent film streamed on Netflix sweeping the media landscape like wildfire: Veronica. A Spanish film with a 100 percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes….and it honestly does deliver some pretty decent scares on top of the fact that the story’s based on real events.
Netflix decided to research their own data due to the fact that social media went crazy over how many viewers seemed to not be able to finish that film successfully. It was just too scary for them. So some execs over at the streaming giant thought it would be cool to come up with their own top ten list of films that just couldn’t be “finished” due to the amount of horror within the content.
Needless to say, that list is below. And you can catch all the trailers of these films here for your viewing pleasure (or pain).
