Here is our list of the 10 best disturbing movies on Netflix you should watch if you can stomach a little bit of chill.
One of the most disturbing movies on Netflix, the 2016 American slasher movie Hush stars Kate Siegel, who also co-wrote the script with director Mike Flanagan. Flanagan also edited the movie. John Gallagher Jr., Michael Trucco, Samantha Sloyan, and Emilia “Emma” Graves all appear in the movie. When a masked assassin knocks on her window, a deaf writer who had retired to the woods to live alone must battle for her life in silence.

A MacBook screencast is used nearly exclusively to tell the story of the movie.
American psychological horror thriller Gerald’s Game was released in 2017; it was directed, edited, and co-written by Mike Flanagan and Jeff Howard. It is based on the 1992 novel of the same name by Stephen King, which was long regarded as being unfilmable. In the movie, Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood play a married couple who go on vacation to a remote property. The wife, who is shackled to the bed without the key and with little chance of escape when her husband suddenly passes away from a heart attack, must find a means to survive while confronting her inner demons.

Galder Gaztelu-Urrutia is the director of the 2019 Spanish social science fiction horror movie The Platform, another very disturbing movie on Netflix. The “Vertical Self-Management Center,” a sizable tower, serves as the setting for the movie. The tenants of the tower, who are rotated every month between its various floors, are fed via a platform that slowly descends through each level of the tower while stopping for a set length of time. Because each level only receives the leftovers from the previous one, the people at the highest levels get to consume as much as they like, which inevitably leads to strife.
