If someone tells me that horror movies are only fun in October, I laugh at them, then stop being their friend. I don’t need that kind of negativity in my life, you know what I’m saying?

For those of you out there who subscribe to Netflix, you may have heard that there are some “secret menus” that you can use to find lists of very carefully selected film genres. These secret menus are, at least in my mind, one of the best ways to discover hidden gems – particularly for horror fans like myself.

To access these categories, simply paste “https://www.netflix.com/browse/genre/###” into a browser window, then replace the “###” with the codes provided below for each category. You’re welcome!
