Are You Brave Enough To Watch The 10 Scariest Movies On Netflix?

Guaranteed to make your heart pound

If you're looking for a good scare, Netflix has 10 suggestions that will probably do the trick. That is, if you haven't already braved every one of these flicks.

First reported by Forbes, Netflix determined these movies to be the scariest they offer by looking at the number of viewers who turn off the movie after getting through 70 percent of the cinematic adventure. By Netflix's analysis, a person is likely to turn off a movie long before that point if they just aren't enjoying it, so the only logical reason to not reach the ending is if the horror becomes too much to bear.

Of course, there may be some holes in this science. Some of these films may be turned off because they are more sick than they are scary, or more gross than they are horrifying, but the fact remains that most viewers, for whatever reason, ominously disappear before the final scene.

Without further ado, and in no particular order, here are the movies horror fanatics should immediately add to their Netflix queue — if they dare:
