Stay Home, Watch Horror: 5 of the Last Decade’s Best Horror Movies to Stream This Week

Now just over halfway into 2020, it’s difficult not to think back to almost seven months ago and remember the optimism that the start of a new year- and a new decade for that matter- tend to bring. Horror dominated the 2010s, ushering in a modern Golden Age that delivered a wealth of diverse, fresh new voices. Even if you disagree, at the very least, the world felt normal then.

Horror thrives no matter the situation, so 2020 is off to a great start with plenty more on the horizon… if we can get there. But it’s still hard not to miss communal theatrical screenings, box office spectacles, and a busier period not yet impacted by a pandemic. Because there’s no such thing as a flux capacitor to whisk us back to simpler times, we’re instead revisiting some of the decade’s best genre offerings.

Whether filling a blind spot or offering genre comfort food, these five horror movies were among the best of the 2010s and are all available to stream this week.


Train to Busan – Netflix, Prime Video, Shudder, Tubi, Vudu

Just when you think the zombie movie has exhausted itself completely, it finds a way to reinvent itself or offer something different. Directed by Yeon Sang-ho, this movie follows a workaholic, divorced dad on a train to Busan to bring his estranged daughter to her mother for her birthday. Their plans are derailed by a zombie outbreak, forcing the passengers to band together to survive. Yeon Sang-ho changes up the zombie tropes, but what makes this film special is the way it tugs at your heartstrings. It’s not just the dad bonding with and protecting his daughter that infuses this high paced film with emotional depth, but some of the other memorable passengers as well. With Yeon Sang-ho’s sequel, Peninsula, just around the corner, now is the perfect time to revisit or catch up with Train to Busan.


The Cabin in the Woods – Hulu, Prime Video

This horror-comedy by Drew Goddard and co-writer Joss Whedon flipped the cabin in the woods set horror film on its head, offering viewers so much more than they bargained for in the process. It starts with the standard formula: a group of friends embarks on a weekend getaway to a cabin in the woods. Goddard and Whedon go full-on meta when it’s revealed this group of friends has no idea they’ve been selected and groomed to be participants in a ritual by an underground lab. This love letter to the genre delivers one of the most insanely satisfying and gory climaxes of all time. From a zombie redneck torture family to a merman and a killer unicorn, and everything in between, this movie truly has it all.


The Autopsy of Jane Doe – Netflix

Often the best way to deliver maximum chills is through simplicity. Pared-back characters, settings, and even stories to give the scares and atmosphere center stage can go very far in crafting a memorable experience in terror. André Øvredal’s chamber piece sees a father and son coroner team in over their heads when a mysterious Jane Doe arrives at their morgue. She bears no external signs of trauma but inside reveals a vastly different truth that defies science. The further into their autopsy they get, the more they’re inundated with supernatural activity that indicates Jane’s secrets aren’t meant to be uncovered. Just one single location and three characters – one of which never speaks or moves- gives one of the creepiest horror movies of the decade.  


I Saw the Devil – Crackle, Pluto TV, Vudu

One of the most brutal and unrelenting horror films of the decade, and arguably all time. Jee-woon Kim’s I Saw the Devil gives the revenge thriller one severely bleak, grisly facelift. When a serial killer viciously murders a secret service agent’s pregnant fiancée, the agent becomes driven by vengeance. That results in a cat and mouse game that gets so brutal the lines between protagonist and antagonist blur. Visceral and shocking, this is a must for those who like their horror extremely dark.


Evil Dead – Tubi

Talk about one hell of a debut. Fede Alvarez helmed the remake no one wanted of a beloved horror classic and left fans clamoring for a sequel. He made it look so easy, too. A practical effects-heavy remake that honors the original in every way while forging new ground isn’t anywhere close to easy. Jane Levy stars as Mia, the antagonist turned heroine deserving of her own spinoff franchise. Lou Taylor Pucci’s Eric is also a standout as the bookish teacher responsible for unleashing demonic forces upon his group of friends simply trying to get their friend off drugs. Poor Eric takes a beating here. Alvarez’s film is lean, mean, and oh so freaking gory. It rains down blood in the finale, in a torrential downpour no less.
