Netflix Watch Instantly Top 5

Deliverance
"Four suburban friends take a canoeing trip down a Georgia river, but what starts as a lighthearted adventure becomes a voyage into the heart of darkness when redneck locals descend on the foursome and force them to kill or be killed. Jon Voight, Burt Reynolds, Ronny Cox and Ned Beatty star in this terrifying, enthralling, existential action epic that earned three Academy Award nominations: Best Picture, Best Director and Best Editing."

Billy Jack
"American Indian Vietnam War vet Billy Jack (Tom Laughlin) -- a character first seen in the motorcycle flick The Born Losers -- roams the American Southwest using his martial arts skills to protect the downtrodden and punish the bigoted. The victims of Billy Jack's wrath here are the ignorant townsfolk who hassle the minority students at the progressive school run by Jean Roberts (Delores Taylor, who earned a Golden Globe nod for her performance)."

Black Christmas
"Terror reigns inside a sorority house a few days before Christmas break as a series of menacing phone calls -- and the discovery of a dead girl's body -- transform yuletide cheer into fear. Margot Kidder, Olivia Hussey and Andrea Martin ("SCTV") co-star as just a few of the petrified sisters at the mercy of an unseen stalker in this 1970s horror gem from director Robert Clark, who told a much happier holiday tale with his 1983 classic, A Christmas Story."

Quarantine
"While on assignment shadowing firemen, a Los Angeles news reporter (Jennifer Carpenter) and her cameraman (Steve Harris) get trapped in a quarantined apartment complex with a vicious unknown killer. With all forms of communications cut, the news crew keeps the cameras rolling as they search for a way to escape rabies-infected zombies. John Erick Dowdle writes and directs this frenzied horror film that also stars Johnathon Schaech."

1984
"This movie adaptation of George Orwell's eerie, dystopian tale -- filmed during the year for which it's named -- follows the "reeducation" of two people who break the law in a totalitarian state by falling in love while Big Brother is watching. The film turned out to be Richard Burton's last, but it's also notable for its intriguing technique of shooting specific scenes from the novel on the exact dates they were specified in print."
