6 Movies and TV Shows You Must Watch This Halloween on Netflix

Halloween is the time of year when we dress up as ghouls and ghosts, eat more candy than we should, and scare ourselves silly. Fond of treating instead of tricking? Binge-watching horror on Netflix might be right up your alley.

Horror has seen a return to popularity on the small screen with the likes of Stranger Things, American Horror Story and The Walking Dead. As for movies, we’ve had brilliant films like What We Do in the Shadows, It Follows and Ouija: Origin of Evil. You’ll have plenty to browse on Netflix.

Here are six movies and TV shows you must watch this Halloween on the popular streaming service.

1. The Sixth Sense (1999)

Horror films had become something of a joke by the late 1990s, caught under the awesome shadow of the late Wes Craven and his Scream franchise. But this quiet, slow-burning ghost story became the sleeper hit of the year for M. Night Shyamalan.

It’s hard to believe it’s almost twenty years old, but it’s still as spooky as it was when it first came out. If you only know its famous line, “I see dead people,” then take the time to creep yourself out with The Sixth Sense this Halloween.

2. Hellraiser (1987)

Doug Bradley’s Pinhead became a horror film icon. So why not treat yourself to the film that started it all with Hellraiser?

Based on Clive Barker’s novella The Hellbound Heart, the film revolves around the notorious puzzle box and the Cenobites, a race of sadistic beings hellbent on dispensing pain wherever they go. Be warned: it’s not for the faint of heart.

3. The Awakening (2011)

If ghosts and specters are more your thing than Cenobites, you could do worse than this period-set haunted house story. Set in 1921, The Awakening sees a ghost hunter visit a boys’ boarding school to debunk their paranormal stories. As you might imagine, things don’t go according to plan.

Fans of the 1995 BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice will recognize the boarding school as Mr. Darcy’s Pemberley. It also stars Dominic West as an irritable teacher.

4. Under the Shadow (2016)

Set in 1980s Iran following its revolution, this quiet, understated horror film explores the terror of living in a war-torn state while showing the perils of living in a haunted apartment. Genuinely tense and packed with suspense, this indie horror will have you wondering who – or what – keeps moving the stuff in your house.

Film critic Mark Kermode dubbed Under the Shadow the best film of 2016.

5. Stranger Things Season 2 (2017)

Season 1 of Stranger Things was a surprise smash hit for Netflix, filling our screens with a mishmash of references to 1980s film, television, and games.

Season 2 promises to be just as thrilling, with psychic Eleven wandering in the Upside Down. Will now returned from this weird phantom zone, isn’t all he appears. There is something with lots of legs that wants to break through into the world. And his friends dress up as Ghostbusters. The new season begins on October 27.

6. Penny Dreadful (2014-2016)

This touching (but often horrific) tribute to Victorian Gothic brings together legendary characters like Dracula, Dr. Frankenstein, the Wolfman, and Dorian Gray.

Held together by the glorious Eva Green, each of the three seasons gave breathing space to story lines involving the misfits and outcasts of horror. Witchcraft, vampires, werewolves, and immortal manmade beings jostle for airtime in the thick atmosphere of Victorian London.

The stellar cast also includes Timothy Dalton, Josh Hartnett, Rory Kinnear, and Dr. Who’s Billie Piper. Be warned that Kinnear’s Frankenstein’s Monster steals pretty much every scene in which he appears.

Whichever of these amazing horror titles you choose, make sure you install the SURE Universal remote to control Netflix from your phone!
