7 things to stream on Netflix this Halloween
Whether your slightly old and have a somewhat weak heart, or you're a young, courageous buck trying to show your mates that you can take a good horror film, Netflix has got you covered this Halloween. We spent an afternoon scouring through its extensive library to give you the options to maximise your fright night.
Scary movie checklist: Ominous name? Check. Terrifying young girl? Also check. Demons. Yup. This is why The Chosen makes its way to the top of our list. In brief, a young girl finds her life in the hands of a child stealing demon (ya see!). Her mother and 19-year-old uncle are the only ones who are able to save her, but to do so must select six other blood relatives for a deadly sacrifice. I’m sure you’ve gathered, this is one of our rather heavy recommendations.
He Never Died
Gore central! An immortal character, who needs human flesh in order to survive had tried his best to stay clean, but now has been cast back into society and not in a good way, but by a gang of thugs and his estranged daughter.
This TV-show is slightly more light-hearted than some of our other recommendations. As a spin off of the tween-targeted Vampire Diaries, this one might be better for watching with your missus, so she (or you) don't get too freaked out and have to sleep with the bathroom light on. Netflix has both complete seasons available, so it's perfect for a Halloween binge.
From Dusk Till Dawn
Yes, we all remember that scene from the original film Roberto Rodriguez's 1996 original film, but now extended into a TV show we can get more from The Gecko brothers. Wanted for multiple murders, after a messy bank robbery, the third season of D-2-D involves the pair finding themselves in the vortex of the culebra world and from that assembling a team to take down the forces of hell as well as some new enemies they have formed.
An absolute horror classic. A realtor goes on the lam with nothing but a wad of cash and hopes to start a new life, however finds herself at the infamous Bates Motel. Alfred Hitchcock’s masterpiece will guarantee a good ol' Halloween scare.
In an attempt to film paranormal activity, three friends trespass into an abandoned castle. Yes you guessed it, the place is haunted and all hell breaks loose, terror and madness galore.
If you fancy a touch of nostalgia with your scares, then watching mid-90s Courtney Cox, David Arquette, Drew Barrymore and Neve Campbell screaming about the place being chased by ghostface should be added to your List. The killer's costume still makes a surefire, easy-to-make Halloween outfit.
