HALLOWEEN NETFLIX SUGGESTIONS
If, like me, you're forgoing the shrieks and thrills of a night out this Halloween and instead choosing to curl up under a blanket with some spooks and chills then these Netflix suggestions might just come in handy.
Dexter is one of my favourite tv shows of all time, it's edge-of-your-seat intense and so addictive! It follows quiet and unassuming blood splatter analyst Dexter Morgan, who moonlights as a serial killer who only targets murderers. It's definitely scary at times and it's a really good one to marathon.
02. American Horror Story
The great thing about American Horror Story is that it's an anthology series which means that each season is in a completely different setting with totally different storylines so you don't have to watch them in any particular order. I started with Asylum but my personal favourite, and the scariest in my opinion, is Murder House.
This is a new Netflix original series which is a loose sequel of the classic horror film franchise. A cyberbullying incident leads to a murder which stirs up memories of a crime spree from the town's past. It's a clever, self-aware slasher series centered around a group of teenagers with a whodunnit mystery at the centre. Definitely one to have you hiding behind the blanket.
04. The Babadook
The Babadook is a terrifying psychological thriller which favours real stomach-dropping horror over tired jump scares. Troubled widow, Amelia, is finding it impossible to deal with her son Sam's intense fear of monsters but when a creepy children's book turns up in the house, Sam's obsession begins to turn sinister. I'm not the biggest horror film fan but I thought this was brilliant and so different from anything else I've seen. It'll have you sleeping with the lights on for sure.
This one is for those of you who prefer laughs over scares but really anyone will love this comedy-horror. I hesitate to even call it a horror but it does have zombies in so I guess it counts. Zombieland follows an unlikely group of zombie apocalypse survivors as they try and make their way in the new world and decide what to do next. This is one of my favourite films and I could watch it over and over. It's pretty hilarious and Woody Harrelson is just excellent.
As I said earlier I won't be going out for Halloween so I'll most likely be snuggled up with Netflix or a spooky read. If you prefer reading over watching then look out for tomorrow's post on my top five Halloween book recommendations!
