    I recently got netflix and was curious if people here can recommend good horror movies that are on the instant stream? I've already seen rare films like the video dead, the keep, and The Stuff on there.

    There definitely are some rare flicks on there not available on DVD. Two i can think of off the top of my head are Open House and Dark Tower.

    There are plenty of great movies on there, but as I'm watching it right now, The Video Dead is not one of them! ;)

    Technically, it's immaterial anyway- Korngold's already seen it.

    And, forever: The Video Dead > Night of the Creeps

    (In fact...: The Video Dead > Hello, Mary Lou: Prom Night II > Night of the Creeps)

    (Aw, screw it:

    The Video Dead > Night of the Comet > Rabid Grannies > C.H.U.D. > Vamp > Waxwork > The Stuff > From a Whisper to a Scream > Dolls
    Dolls > Hello, Mary Lou: Prom Night II > Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: You Better Watch Out > Motel Hell > The Kiss > Night of the Creeps > The Initiation
    The Initiation > Ghoulies 2 > 976-Evil > Society > Street Trash > April Fools Day > The Church > Night of the Demons > Cheerleader Camp > The Beast Within)

    I've only been a member of netflix for a few months, but these are a few films that I've seen for the first time and have been impressed with:

    Bloody Birthday
    Blood and Lace
    Rape Squad
    The Baby
    Terrorvision
    Monster Dog (which I've seen before but this print is so clean that it's like seeing it again for the first time!)

    Bloody Birthday is just about Top on my Instant Queue. I have no idea what to expect.

    I personally highly recommend From a Whisper to a Scream. The Terry Kiser (Dr. Crews from Friday the 13th Part VII) story has a hugely dragging middle but the rest are really interesting, brutal, nasty, smarter than you'd expect. It's an anthology flick and worth seeing alone for the death scene at the end of story #3. Definitely not something you see very often.

    I watched From A Whisper... It didn't make my cut. But another film that I enjoyed on Netflix was a werewolf movie simply called "Mom".

    I know it dragged a lot but the good moments were way too good for me. I mean, the 4th story does Children of the Corn better than any of those films (it's the strongest of the 4), the 1st story was kind of like Deranged-Part 2, and the 3rd story is what Tales from the Crypt's "Food for Thought" episode should have been.


    Same here.

    Blood Games is another great one on Netflix that isn't available on DVD.

    The Initiation of Sarah (1978) is pretty good for an old creepy made for TV flick. Watched several times on Netflix and eventually I tracked it down on video.

    Bloody Birthday is great. A lost gem for sure. Some of the lines the kids say are down right amazing.

    I watched Whisper and Rape Squad yesterday. Rape Squad had a very 1970's vibe to it, but Whisper I liked a lot. Pretty damn dark and the kills were brutal.

    Good god, the canadian version of netflix is abysmal! my wife wanted to sign up, so we did. $7.99 isn't hard to take, so i guess if she even watches a couple of movies/episodes a month, it will be worth it. but...shit. i tried searching through what they have available. its that same sense of dismay that i would have walking into a blockbuster. each genre section consisting of about 30-40 mildly successful mainstream films from the past 10 years, with perhaps...2 or 3 classics. virtually nothing of interest, anywhere. my wife wanted me to pick something we could watch, so i spent about half an hour looking. in that time, the most interesting thing i could find to watch was Piranha DD. ugh.

    Netflix's layout is abysmal in general - it's not that it's lacking selection. The "front page" selection is horrible to start, and you really have to start watching movies for it to start queuing more suitable selections for your tastes. There are a lot of good titles on there, you just have to use the "search" function instead and manual type in a title and see if it's there. It's a pain, but it's really the only way as you have to "learn" your Netflix. And it's quite easy to get American Netflix if you're in Canada if you do want more selection.
