There’s never been a better time to be a horror fan. Thanks to the Internet, you can see every scary movie you'd ever want, whenever you want. Unfortunately, not every horror film is a home run, but that’s life. Luckily, Netflix has plenty of above-average horror films streaming on their site right now. Whatever your preference, there are plenty of decent movies to watch while you’re all alone at night.

Not every horror film can be a groundbreaking piece of existential terror, but there are plenty of movies that are not bad but not brilliant either, and sometimes that’s what you’re in the mood for. Your brain can’t take a constant barrage of art that’s considered by critics and fans across the board to be absolutely perfect - that’s why every once in a while you need to watch a movie about Turkish cops accidentally driving into a Hell dimension. Who cares if it’s the same basic plot as Event Horizon? It’s still fun to watch.

If you’ve got Netflix you can stream these pretty good but not great horror films right now, and you totally should.

    Though this film sticks to a simpler narrative, it manages to take the well-known trope of the scary clown and reinvent it once again.

    Kristy looks like it's going to be a casual Lifetime movie of the week, but it's actually a solid survival movie that takes place on an empty college campus during Thanksgiving break. The movie takes a little while to start, but once everyone starts trying to hit each other with cars and set each other on fire, you'll forget all about those snoozy conversations that permeate the first half hour.

    If you aren't wary of inviting strangers into your home now, then you will be after watching this film. Though the characters could have been provided with a bit strong backstories, Emelie still does a good job of tapping into some seriously nightmare-inducing fears.

    Who doesn't like movies about creepy clowns getting their revenge on teens? Horror comedy is always kind of hit or miss, so just go into this movie knowing that there will be moments where you feel the bottomless pit of a joke that fails miserably - but that's fine because the movie has some really interesting scenes.
