19. Before I Wake

Before I Wake on Netflix begins innocently enough. There’s nothing sweeter than a kind couple taking in a child in need of a happy home. After the death of their son and still mourning his loss, Mark and Jessie decide to become foster parents. But there’s something strange about their new foster son, his dreams are…complicated. What Cody sees in his dreams becomes a reality. This is a beautiful thing when he’s having a peaceful sleep, but nightmares like to haunt him, and these nightmares are not something anyone would like to experience.

18. The Conjuring

Horror fans are very grateful for the Conjuring universe. It has launched many movies and spin-offs of the genre. Some haven’t been the best, admittedly, but there’s no denying that the few hit are amazing, and The Conjuring is one of the best.
