  1. The Conjuring

Director: James Wan

Year of release: 2013

Runtime: 112 minutes

The Conjuring literally became a franchise after its first part became one of the biggest horror movies of the era. The plot revolves around the ghost-hunting couple Ed and Lorraine Warren, played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. The couple investigates paranormal occurrences and goes out to help Carolyn Perron. Lili Taylor gave an outstanding performance as Carolyn. Her life turns upside down when she finds a ghost haunting her farmhouse. The movie is set in the early ‘70s. The biggest catch is that Ed and Lorraine exist in the real world and are known for their ghostly encounters. Although The Conjuring 2 and 3 are also on Netflix, the first movie remains the best.

  1. Creep

Director: Patrick Brice

Year of release: 2014

Everyone is a little tired of the found footage genre, but this one is an exception. Mark Duplass is chilling as a man who hires a videographer (played by co-writer/director Brice) to record his final days as he has a brain tumor. In a film that was basically put together as they shot it, the protagonist learns that his subject has some truly dark secrets. Note: Creep 2 is also on Netflix.

  1. His House

Director: Remi Weekes

Year of release: 2020

Runtime: 93 minutes

His House tells us that it’s not always a haunted house. Sometimes it’s people. The movie depicts an immigrant couple (Sope Dirisu and Wunmi Mosaku). The couple moves from South Sudan to an English town, where they have to face foes outside and inside their new home. It’s a must-watch original horror that has been basically underrated. Don’t miss it.
