What To Watch This Halloween – A Spooky Guide For Horror Fans

If you are a horror fan, you must be eagerly waiting for this time of the year. As winter is around the corner, the leaves start changing their color, and the town starts getting decked up with all the wonderful Halloween decorations. In the meantime, you can’t wait to catch something spooky on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and Hulu. Horror is probably the most in-demand genre over the past few years, and the streaming platforms have a lot on their platter every October. In 2021, you won’t find any exceptions. With Mike Flanagan coming up with a new series and Chucky and Michael Myers returning, horror lovers are waiting to have a whale of a time. Check out what’s in store for you this Halloween, especially if you are a horror aficionado.

Midnight Mass

This supernatural horror miniseries on Netflix is created and directed by a man who has gifted the viewers with The Haunting of Hill House and Gerald’s Game. When it comes to horror, Mike Flanagan has truly come out with flying colors. Midnight Mass features Zach Gilford, Henry Thomas, Kate Siegel, Rahul Kohli, Samantha Sloyan, and Hamish Linklater. Releasing on September 24, 2021, this is a miniseries that is right in time for Halloween.

So, if you haven’t yet watched it, now is the time. Midnight Mass is not an adaptation of any famous work by a horror writer. Mike is telling his own story through it. The story revolves around an island community that assembles around a priest, portrayed by Hamish Linklater, just moments before something untoward happens. Midnight Mass is a purely original work and is not a reboot of any kind.

There’s Something Inside Your House

The 2017 novel There’s Someone Inside Your House by Stephanie Perkins became a best seller worldwide. Patrick Brice has adapted Stephanie’s work. The film features Sydney Park, Diego Josef, Jesse LaTourette, Asjha Cooper, and Theodore Pellerin. The film’s premise is quite creepy and can send a shiver down your spine as a serial killer dons masks that make him look exactly like his victims.

Sydney arrives in a small Nebraska town as some kids of her age fall prey to a series of cold-blooded murders. The killer seems to have a unique agenda that you will soon unveil this Halloween. One thing is for sure, though. You won’t forget the twist in the plot well into the 2022 Halloween. The premier for this series was on September 23, 2021, and it was on Netflix by October 6, 2021.

Just Beyond

The horror-comedy series is not R-rated. Everyone every time might not be in the mood for gore or might have kids watching along with them. However, a film doesn’t have to be so to be a perfect watch this spooky season. Just Beyond is for all who want to have some good family time and get a taste of spook as well.

The original anthology series on Disney+ is an adaptation of R.L. Stine’s graphic novels of the same name. The premier of all eight episodes was on October 13, 2021. Seth Grahame-Smith, the author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter brings this show for the younger lot. So, this Halloween is going to be something extra with Just Beyond.

I Know What You Did Last Summer

It has almost been a quarter of a century since I Know What You Did Last Summer started a slasher franchise. The story of a vengeful murderer wreaking havoc on a group of teenagers is back in the form of a series. Relative newcomers play teenagers in the series who clash with each other on a fateful night. After a year, when one of these teenagers returns home, she finds I Know What You Did Last summer scribbled across her mirror.

The secrets held by this group of friends get unfolded in the flashback, secrets that might take their lives. The Amazon Prime series stars Madison Iseman, Brianne Tju, Ashley Moore, Ezekiel Goodman, Sebastian Amoruso, Bill Heck, Fiona Rene, and others. The first episode was available for streaming on October 15, 2021

If these don’t quench your thirst for horror, you can also binge on Halloween Kills, Welcome to the Blumhouse, Paranormal Activity: Next of Kin, and Hypnotic. The list doesn’t end here, of course.
