26 Awesomely Terrifying Horror Movies You’ve Probably Never Seen

About six years ago, I was sitting in the house I shared with three (messy) dudes wallowing in a post-college-graduation funk. The three messy dudes were out for the day and I was alone, which meant I had free reign of the television — something that NEVER happened. I turned on Netflix instant streaming (which was fairly new at the time) and decided to look for the one thing my roommates would never want to watch with me: horror movies.

What I found in the scant selection Netflix offered in 2009 was the often-ignored Showtime gem of a series: Masters of Horror. These hour-long films first aired in 2005 but if you didn’t have premium cable chances are you missed them. Directed and written by some of the greats in the genre, Masters of Horror has become an October tradition of mine. You can watch both seasons on Hulu, and after I blew through them in less than a week I thought I’d share them with you!
