It’s officially the eve of Halloween. What better way to celebrate than with some popcorn and spooky night in with your roommates? If you have the stomach for it, stream these following scary movies and TV shows for a hauntingly fun night.
“Hereditary” left audiences in shock this summer, naming it a “new kind of horror.” The story centers around the death of an enigmatic family member and the supernatural fallout that occurs as a result. Ari Aster delivers a masterful psychological thriller that avoids the use of excessive gore but takes advantage of human emotion and grief. Stream it on iTunes or Amazon.
A Quiet Place
In this post-apocalyptic setting, a single noise can get you killed. Hold your breath for 91 minutes as one family survives day by day without making any sound. Though the dialogue is limited, you won’t even notice because the action will keep you at the edge of your seat. Catch the full film on iTunes or Amazon.
American Horror Story
If movies are too much of a commitment, then try Ryan Murphy’s creepy anthology series, featuring some of the biggest names out there: Jessica Lange, Sarah Paulson, Kathy Bates, Lady Gaga, and more. The show, now in its 8th season, plays into a lot of grim, freaky, and offbeat material that always takes unexpected turns each season. Get caught up on Hulu, Netflix, or FXNOW.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
As the sister show of CW’s “Riverdale,” this chilling new series similarly adds an intense sense of darkness to its beloved comic book counterparts. For example, Sabrina’s coven worships the devil, makes human sacrifices (sometimes in the form of cannibalism), and wants Sabrina to sign her soul to The Dark Lord. You can watch the entire first season on Netflix as Sabrina chooses between the witch world of her family and the human world of her friends on her 16th birthday.
It’s the show that everyone and their mothers are talking about. This brilliant series tells the story of four kids, a telekinetic super-girl, and their adventures in the 1980s. As the perfect blend of sci-fi and horror, the show’s second season became one of the most anticipated launches on Netflix. Get ready to spend hours unraveling the extraordinary mysteries of Hawkins, Indiana this Halloween.
This show’s for the bravest of them all. If you can handle gruesome scenes with blood, corpses, and torture, then “Hannibal” is the series for you. Brilliant psychiatrist Hannibal Lector assists a criminal profiler in pursuing a serial killer but becomes a cannibalistic murderer himself. It’s horrific but so beautifully delivered that you’ll still peek through your fingers. Stream it on Amazon Prime.
