Netflix have announced ‘Netflix and Chills’ – a slew of new horror films hitting the streaming service this Halloween

Halloween is massively overrated and so is just about every other holiday barring Christmas.

Once you get to a certain age it just loses its appeal, and instead you sit in gorging on Haribo with the lights off. We’ve got no plans this year, but my girlfriend wants to put our flat down on the list of apartments that are welcome to trick or treaters. This is all new to me.

She thinks it’s cute, but I know for a fact I’ll have to remember to buy the sweets and open the door while pretending to be impressed at what they’re wearing.


If, like me, you’ll be sitting in this 31st October waiting to go to bed, you may need something to keep you entertained other than answering the door every five seconds.

Netflix have you covered, as they’ve revealed a host of frightening films to watch on the so-called scariest night of the year.

They say:

Something streaming this way comes… Netflix has a slew of NEW films that will provide all the thrills and chills you need to survive the Halloween season.

Which horror films are on Netflix this Halloween?

These new films include: The Shadow of the Moon (September 27th), In the Tall Grass (October 4th), Fractured (October 11th), Eli (October 18th) and Rattlesnake (October 25th).

The synopsis for The Shadow of the Moon reads:

A Philadelphia detective slowly unravels as he nurses a lifelong obsession with an enigmatic female serial killer whose crimes defy explanation.

Elsewhere, In The Tall Grass is about a pregnant woman and her brother who wade into vast field of grass after hearing a boy’s cry, only to find themselves unable to leave, while Fractured, starring Avatar’s Sam Worthington, tells the story of a man who, along with his wife, takes his daughter to hospital after she breaks her arm. However, after falling asleep in the hospital, he awakes to find the hospital has no record of his wife and child being checked in.

Sounds pretty accurate…

And Rattlesnake is about, you guessed it, a sneaky lil snake that bites a young girl, whose mother then accepts help from a ‘mysterious woman.‘ According to IMDb, the mother then ‘finds herself making an unthinkable deal with the devil to repay the stranger’.

Clearly there’s enough there to be getting on with. To be honest, anything to distract my girlfriend from putting up one of these.

Yes, that’s a Halloween tree, apparently a new decoration people are putting up in honour of the occasion.

Has this Halloween business got out of hans? I blame America – nobody cared about it this much years ago. It’s like Prom.

God I hate the world.

Can you tell it’s Monday?
