Fancy a horror marathon?
This year’s Halloween celebrations have to make up for last year’s sitting-in-the-house-avoiding-others, but there’s always space for some spooky films and popcorn. So, whether you’re going out or staying in on October 31, there’s plenty of times to squeeze in a few of these fantastic films.
Here are our picks from the top streaming services in Denmark, so bust out those skull-shaped sweets you bought on a whim from the shop and start chomping!
1. Fear Street: Part One, Two & Three
For 300 years a string of unsolvable murders have plagued the town of Shadyville (yes, it is really called that in the film) until some teenagers meddle where they shouldn’t and discover the centuries-old evil spirit responsible.
2. Midnight Mass
A mysterious priest arrives on an isolated island community and strange things start happening. Residents begin to witness omens that scare the socks off them, but the priest’s charisma hides a deep, dark truth.
3. Zombieland: Double Tap
There are zombies… everywhere! And the gang face more difficult hurdles than they ever have before. Plus, Woody Harrelson is in this one again, and who doesn’t love him?
4. Hubie Halloween
Hubie Dubois (Adam Sandler) is just trying to ensure that everyone has a lovely Halloween, but people are pretty horrible to him regardless. However, he gets his chance to show them all his worth when he’s tasked with saving Halloween.
5. Army of the Dead
The title says it all really – this one’s not about puppies and rainbows. Basically, a group of mercenaries thinks they’re hard enough to return to Las Vegas and pull off a heist despite an absolute infestation of zombies in the city.
6. Brand New Cherry Flavor
If what you want from your horror films is sex, supernatural kittens, and a whole lot of revenge then this one’s for you. It’s pretty trippy, so prepare to question what’s real and what’s not once you’re done with episode 1.
7. American Psycho
Christian Bale plays the charismatic and intelligent, but also murderous and psychotic Bret Easton Ellis in this classic from good old 2000. He proceeds to do whatever he wants whenever he wants in the most gruesome of manners.
8. The Lighthouse
Lighthouses are inherently creepy (sorry if you don’t agree) – isolated, battered by the waves and by the wind, and inhabited by lonely humans who we imagine don’t have many options when it comes to socialising. Well, take yourself back to the 1890s and imagine being stuck in a remote lighthouse with Robert Pattinson, both slowly losing your sanity. Pretty creepy, right?
Wanna watch a film that makes Scandi people look super creepy and turns Midsommar into an absolute nightmare experience? Well, here you go! You’ll never want to celebrate Sankt Hans Aften again after you’ve seen this film.
10. El Silencio De La Cuidad Blanca (The Silence of the White City)
Ever been to the beautiful Basque city of Vitoria-Gasteiz? Well, you’re going to see it from a whole different perspective in this film as a retired police officer hunts down a serial killer who has been in prison for 20 years.
