The Best Horror Films Currently Streaming on the SYFY App

The Boy (2016)

M3GAN and Chucky aren't the only creepy dolls in town. Check out William Brent Bell's film about Brahms, a porcelain-faced terror, and the unlucky nanny (The Walking Dead alum Lauren Cohan) tasked with looking after him. It's only been a few years since he debuted, and he's already one of horror's favorite haunted dolls for a reason.

The Invisible Man (2020)

Featuring some of the most nail-biting sequences in a horror film in recent memory, Leigh Whannell's updated take on the classic Universal monster of the same name is tense, inventive, and features one of the most shocking and unexpected kills you'll find in any horror film in the 21st century so far. The story of a woman trying to escape her tech genius boyfriend, it features great performances from Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, and Oliver Jackson-Cohen in the title role... when you can see him, anyway.

The Little Shop of Horrors (1960)

Roger Corman is the king of low-budget cinema for a reason. He shot Little Shop of Horrors in a matter of days, on a shoestring budget, using sets left over from another film he'd just completed, and in the process delivered an over-the-top horror classic that inspired the hit musical remake of the same name. The story of a struggling flower shop and the florist who accidentally breeds a man-eating plant, it's both a great exercise in low-budget ingenuity and a showcase for the kind of over-the-top style that would help propel it to musical glory decades later.

The Mummy (1999)

Sometimes you don't want to go all-out scary. Sometimes you need a little adventure and fun with the frights, which is where Stephen Sommers' delightful Mummy update comes in. Starring Brendan Fraser as a lovable scoundrel and Rachel Weisz as a determined librarian, it's a film full of great gags, wonderful setpieces, and an unforgettable performance from Arnold Vosloo in the title role. And if you want horror, you'll definitely get it, whether it's scarabs in the dark or half-rotted corpses in broad daylight.

Night of the Living Dead (1968)

George A. Romero's classic film about a group of survivors stranded in a farmhouse as ghouls swarm the land around them is not the first zombie film, but it is the one that set the tone for everything that would come after. Tense, creepy, and full of unforgettable moments, Night of the Living Dead remains the yardstick against which all other zombie stories are measured, even after everyone — including Romero himself — moved on to more gruesome forms for their undead monsters.

Siren (2016)

The V/H/S franchise of found footage anthology films has been going strong for more than a decade now, but they don't all keep the same format. In 2016, we got a full-on spinoff film written by future The Night House scribes Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski, and it's well worth a watch. Basically functioning as a feature-length version of the "Amateur Night" short from the first V/H/S, it follows a group of friends as they head out to strip clubs for the night and encounter a succubus. It doesn't keep the same V/H/S format, but it's made in the V/H/S spirit, so check it out.

The Banana Splits Movie (2019)

With its bloody tale of animatronic slaughter, this SYFY Original is the perfect aperitif ahead of Universal and Blumhouse's long-awaited Five Nights at Freddy's movie (hitting theaters and Peacock Friday, October 27). If you grew up with the innocent version of The Banana Splits from the 1960s, then chuck your expectations out the window. This R-rated interpretation is about as far-removed from that childhood nostalgia as one can get.

You Might Be The Killer (2018)

Inspired by an improvisational horror narrative composed on Twitter by writers Chuck Wendig and Sam Sykes, You Might Be The Killer takes its own amusing approach to the slasher subgenre by presenting us with a conversation between two friends, one of whom may in fact actually be the masked killer who's stalking his own summer camp. With a cast led by Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods) and Alyson Hannigan (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), You Might Be The Killer is a fun little detour into a different kind of slasher story.

Curse of Chucky (2017)

As Chucky returns for its third season this month, bringing the titular doll to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, check out the film that helped prove to Don Mancini that the beloved franchise could work in a longer storytelling format. The first Child's Play sequel in almost a decade, Curse introduced fan favorite character Nica Pierce (Fiona Dourif) into the canon, while re-introducing Andy Barclay (Alex Vincent) as a traumatized adult.

Saw (2004)

Gratuitous torture porn or total game-changer? With the tenth installment now playing on the big screen, it's time to revisit the movie that birthed an unlikely franchise. While the original film may seem tame in comparison to the gore that followed in subsequent chapters, the influence of Saw on the horror genre cannot be understated. The twisted machinations of John Kramer (anTobin Bell) and his iconic puppet proxy, Billy, ushered in a new age of stomach-turning thrills.
