"The Amityville Horror" (2005, rated R, 99 minutes): The 1979 original is scarier, but currently unavailable on Netflix. As remakes go, this one isn't bad -- especially since it features a young Ryan Reynolds. Rachel Nichols (pictured), Melissa George and Chloë Grace Moretz also star.

"The Babadook" (2014, rated R, 93 minutes): You might call this one a psychoanalytic horror film, as the story starts out familiar (a widow's young son discovers a children's book with a curious character who mysteriously appears on his bookshelf) and dives further into its twisted, haunting symbolism.

HBO: "The Conjuring" (2013)

"The Conjuring" (2013, rated R, 112 minutes): There's a reason why James Wan's 2013 horror film managed to created a franchise that includes a sequel, "The Conjuring 2" (also available on HBO) and two spin-offs: it's truly terrifying.

"XX" (2017, rated R, 80 minutes): Directed by a group of talented women (Roxanne Benjamin, Karyn Kusama, Annie Clark, Jovanka Vuckovic), this film is actually a four-part anthology of short horror films that take traditional horror tropes and retell them from a female point of view.
