Netflix, by its very nature, is full of crap: How many hours have you lost scrolling through its menus, dead-eyed, feeling nothing, while you try to sift through everything that's bad, everything you've already seen twice, and everything bad that you watched twice already anyway?

We did the hard work for you. Here are eight hidden gems on Netflix you won't regret hitting play on right now.

Tucker and Dale vs. Evil

There's nothing quite so enjoyable as a well-balanced horror-comedy, and Tucker and Dale vs. Evil is nothing if not a funny horror movie. It's a genius conceit: two harmless hillbillies accidentally terrorize a group of young sexy people lost in the woods who think they're actual killers.

Monty Python's Flying Circus

The show responsible for changing comedy forever, and giving your dad nine out of ten of his favorite jokes, is streaming now. You already know how the dead parrot sketch goes, but it's nice to laugh along.

Enemy

Denis Villeneuve has made some pretty amazing blockbusters in his still relatively short career. His best still might be the smaller, quieter Enemy, which will give you a lot to think about, and a whole new reason to be terrified of spiders.

Brick

Last Jedi director Rian Johnson's debut is cheap, clever, and above all, really, really well-acted. This is how a filmmaker makes their mark from the start.

I Am Not a Serial Killer

One of the very best horrors in the past few years, I Am Not a Serial Killer follows a sociopathic boy determined not to bend to the will of his more subconscious violent desires. Oh, and Christopher Lloyd plays a shapeshifting murderer. This movie has it all.

Grand Designs

There are a lot of British home improvement shows on Netflix, but none better than Grand Designs, which sees a never-ending parade of well-meaning yuppies live out insane architectural fantasies, guided by a snarky British presenter who is not afraid to question a lot of their decisions.

Locke

More than a one-room thriller, this is a one-man thriller. Taking place in near real-time on a car trip to London, Tom Hardy plays Ivan Locke, whose life unravels during a series of phone calls during his drive.

Coraline

Henry Selick, the man who directed The Nightmare Before Christmas, makes a nightmarish (see what we did there?) and gorgeous vision of Neil Gaiman's young adult story. A perfect Halloween movie, and a testament to what the dying art of claymation can do.
