20 Hidden Horror Movie Gems To Watch On Netflix

14. The Taking Of Deborah Logan (2014)

Eagle Films

This indie horror tells the story of a documentary crew of college students who are making a doc about Alzheimer’s disease using the eponymous elderly lady as a case study.

But what starts off as a poignant attempt at getting to the heart of the disease and what it means to the sufferer’s loved ones quickly turns into a terrifying series of events that may reveal that disease may not be the culprit of Deborah’s real problems.

The film is achieved using the now tired found footage approach but it finds ways to make the style interesting, bolstered by a genuinely unsettling atmosphere, effective jump scares and a terrific central performance by Jill Larson.
