Movies, by definition, allow us to safely escape into the realms of the unknown. When the lights are out and the house begins to creak, it can be fun to put yourself inside the twisted mind of a serial killer, murderer, movie monster, or sexy slasher. Some of the best movies on Netflix are slasher flicks or serial killer films, and we've put together a list of the best of them. Warning: you may not sleep at night after viewing any number of these. 

The best slashers and serial killer movies on Netflix offer a comprehensive catalog of terror - often of the bloody and gruesome variety. The best slasher movies share many of the same characteristics - the swift dispatching of sexually promiscuous co-eds (Friday the 13th); the whodunit (Identity); gore (Texas Chainsaw Massacre); and the relentlessness of often mysterious figures of death (The Town That Dreaded Sundown).

On this list, you'll find cult-classics, like Scream. Drew Barrymore might only be on screen for about ten minutes of the movie before she's brutally gutted and hung in her own front yard, but her performance is well-worth the watch. If you're into sociopaths and serial killers, definitely watch Ed Gein: The Butcher of Plainfield. It tells the story of the infamous murderer and body-snatcher that inspired the character Leatherface in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. 

So, lock your doors, don’t answer the phone, hit play, and brace yourself. Vote up the best slashers and serial killer movies on Netflix below, and be sure to let us know what you think in the comment section.
