8 Spooky Netflix Shows to Get You Into the Halloween Spirit

We handpicked a selection of the best Netflix watches this Halloween.

Long gone are the good old days where one used to pick up the scariest movie they can find at the video store, just by looking at the cover and the back, and hoping that it turns out to be a good one. There was no checking ratings on IMDB, watching trailers, etc … you just jumped right in.

Nowadays, with household-staple Netflix, a movie or series that you think is not up to par is switched off within the first 10 minutes, and another one is started immediately. Thankfully, we’ve curated a long list of spine-chilling Netflix viewing for Halloween, so you’re bound to find something you like.

Hold The Dark

After her son gets devoured by a a pack of wolves, a lady hires one bad-ass writer to go hunting for the body and investigate. But when he gets deep into the jungle, it’s far from what he expected. 

 

Creeped Out

 

Creeped Out takes you through series of intriguing, unexplained and paranormal events, with the theme mostly being around children. Each episode is an entirely different world than the next, down to the characters, so you don't need to watch them one by one.

Apostle

 

Set in 1905, Apostle tells the story of a man whose sister gets kidnapped by a loony religious cult, demanding a hefty ransom for her return. However, the cult will soon find out that they’re not just messing with any regular man.

The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell

 

This one's quite an original show, with it partly being a cooking show, as well as a sitcom inside the bewitched home of Christine McConnell, who has attracted hundreds of thousands of social media followers with her hauntingly disturbing confections and the unusual creatures in her home.

The Haunting of Hill House 

The Haunting of Hill House has created a major buzz lately, with recommendations to watch this show coming from left and right. The Haunting of Hill House explores a group of brothers and sisters who, as children, grew up in a house so haunted that it became famous as the most haunted house in the country. The story switches back from them being children to being adults, having to confront with the ghosts of their past.

 

Haunted 

 

You're gonna wanna hide your kids for this one, ladies and gentlemen. As an aspiring writer helps out his sister by watching her home while she's away, the terrifying paranormal activities surrounding it makes him realise that it was the worst decision he's ever made. 

 

Castlevania S2 

 

Back to Netflix for a second season, Castlevania tells the story of a man who is the last surviving member of his clan, and must save Eastern Europe from extinction due to Dracula and his sinister vampire war council.

 

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

A spin-off of the famous Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is set in the town of Greendale where it's always Halloween. Sixteen year old Sabrina has to choose between two worlds: the witch world of her family, and the human world of her friends.
