From Dusk Till Dawn
"The horror and crime thriller genres collide in this new original series from Robert Rodriguez, based on his cult grind house classic about bank-robbing brothers on the run, a lawman bent on bringing them to justice, the devout family caught in the cross-fire, and an ancient evil eager to feast on them all". Having seen the original movie I was really looking forward to this series, we are about half way through the first series and really enjoy it.
"One cannot quench his all-consuming thirst. The other cannot take the beast clawing it's way out. In the sleepy Pennsylvania village of Hemlock Groce, two young men struggle to accept painful truths: about family, themselves, the mystery of the White Tower - and a terrifying new threat so powerful it will turn them from predators into prey." I have not watched this series yet but I think it sounds very intriguing. I'm a fan of Eli Roth and have this in my list of things to watch.
American Horror Story
"Exploring human kinds unsettling capacity for evil, this darkly twisted drama plays upon the power of supernatural fears and everyday horrors". I love love love American Horror Story I'm a huge fan and really hope Netflix gets the new series Freak Show next year. I would recommend anyone looking for something totally different to get stuck in, you won't regret it.
Some movies also on the Halloween list are Carrie, Hostel:Part 3, Saw:The Final Chapter, Texas Chainsaw, You're Next, Drag Me to Hell, Insidious:Chapter 2, Quarintine 2, Sinister, The Haunting in Connecticut 2, The Posession.
There is plenty on offer for the kids too, I know my girls love to watch Ruby Gloom a bit of a goth cartoon about Ruby a young girl who can find happiness in anything and her friends. Also available are the Dreamworks Spooky Stories, Wallace & Gromit the Curse of the WereRabbit, The Addams Family, The Little Vampire and many more.
Recently the girls watched Frankenweenie and loved it.
We are all big fans of anything Tim Burton in this house so this movie was a must see. It's all in black and white but that didn't put them off in the slightest. The movie is about a young boy Victor who loses his dog, his best friend, unexpectedly and uses the power of science to bring him back to life.
Another family favourite I loved watching it as a kid and I still love it now so it's great that my girls are really into it. At this stage you should all know what it's about and if you don't then I demand you go and watch it right now!!
With so much on offer why wait til Halloween to get stuck in, head over to www.netflix.com/Halloween now to view Netflix's Halloween Favourites.
