We’ve rounded up 3 classics so you can mark your calendars ahead of time. So fill up your pumpkin pails because there’s an array of spooky movies to still enjoy on the streaming service from now until Halloween.
This fantasy but appealing horror-comedy flick features action-packed thrills and giggles where a nerdy high school freshman races against time to rescue five-year-old Jacob from the Boogeyman on Halloween night.
When middle schooler Kelly Ferguson, played by Tamara Smart, halloween plans switched from party-going to babysitting, she was afraid this would become the scariest part of her life.
On the night of Halloween, she finds a child in her care who has been kidnapped by the Boogeyman on Halloween night. Kelly then embarks on a mission to save a child who’s been abducted by monsters. She discovers that a secret society of children-protecting babysitters exists who fight magical monsters that really do live under their beds.
2. Vampires vs. the Bronx
Directed by Oz Rodriguez and written by Oz Rodriguez and Blaise Hemingway, Vampires vs. the Bronx is a 2020 American comedy horror film. This movie is a perfect low-stakes horror highlighting current social issues while light-heartedly tickling your ribs. It’s proof that there’s fresh life in vampire stories yet.
In a smooth horror-comedy tone, the film follows a group of teenagers who are forced to protect their neighbourhood in the Bronx when a gathering of vampires invades. Here, pale-skinned monsters are a parasitic force of gentrification, threatening to suck the life out of a New York neighbourhood. With the injection of humour and laugh-out-loud moments, it’ll sweep you off your feet to want more.
3. His House
His House is a 2020 horror-thriller film written and directed by Remi Weekes from a story by Felicity Evans and Toby Venables. This powerful horror feature follows a young couple whose marriage is haunted by shared trauma. The movie sheds light on how refugees at refugee centres are released from detention and assigned a house to live in, which they are forbidden to move out from.
A refugee couple makes a harrowing escape from war-torn South Sudan. The couple begins to struggle to adjust to their new life in an English town that has an evil lurking beneath the surface. At night, be ready to hear humming sounds and odd noises from the inside of the walls of the living room. As tension grows, jump scares are never done lightly in this film. They slowly fill the gap of the couple’s mysterious past.
Whether there really is evil lurking in the town or merely echoes of the real horrors they endured, His House is a terrifyingly disturbing flick that will move you to tears.
