We’re creeping towards Halloween again, and that means it is time to start finding scary movies to watch. With the amount of horror films that get released each year, it is easy to fall behind, and trying to look for the right film can get overwhelming. Here is a list of must-watch movies and TV shows for Halloween.


Stranger Things season 2 begins nearly a year after the first installment, on Halloween in Hawkins, Indiana. Will has rejoined his pals after being rescued from the show’s alternate dimension, the Upside Down. I recently finished watching season 1 of Stranger Things on Netflix and I was hooked from the opening scene. If you haven’t already watched it, I would recommend starting season 1 now. Season 2 of Stranger Things is set to be released exclusively on Netflix on October 27.   

Twin Peaks: The Return

Set 25 years after the original Twin Peaks, the new series focuses on a number of storylines, many which are connected through association with FBI Special Agent Dale Cooper. Twin Peaks is unlike any show on television and if you haven’t seen it yet, you need to stop what you’re doing right now and go watch it. It is by far my favorite TV show of the year (possibly of all time). Seasons 1 and 2 of Twin Peaks are currently available on Netflix, and the new season 3 is available on Showtime.  


An absolute classic! In this highly influential 1922 silent horror film, the mysterious Count Orlok summons Thomas Hutter to his remote Transylvanian castle in the mountains.  After Orlok reveals his vampire nature, Hutter struggles to escape the castle. It is no wonder the film considered an all-time great. I first watched Nosferatu at a film class in college and I couldn’t believe how many themes in this film are still used today. We are proud to have this film in our collection. A must-watch for film lovers everywhere.

Revisit STRANGER THINGS this Halloween


It’s the spookiest time of the year and it is hard for us not to reminisce about one of the hottest sci-fi horror shows of Summer 2016. When the government starts performing some lab tests in secrecy and a small town boy goes missing, we’re usually in for a fishy scenario yet thrilling plot for a show. A mysterious sci-fi horror, with a retro feel, throwing it back to 1983, Stranger Things injected new life to a generally predictable genre. The root of their success was derived from the little things that they did throughout the show. With a constant flow of references to some of our favorite and most memorable 80’s movies such as E.T., Star Wars, Alien, and plenty more, it was hard not to feel a sense of nostalgia and reminisce about the past. With a more than competent cast, beautiful cinematography, and an engaging plot which was well-paced throughout the show, Stranger Things did not disappoint and had fans asking for more.


Now if you felt that there were still some questions that were left on the table unanswered, or if the eight-episode season just seemed too short to fully immerse yourself in the show, worry not because your wishes have come true, my friend. Stranger Things is now approved and working towards a second season, and the producers have mentioned that it would be more of a sequel to the first season rather than a continuation of the current storyline. This should allow for explanation and revelation of some of the mysteries that were left unanswered by the end of season one.

If you enjoyed this thrilling horror series, go check out one of WWMPC’s own thrillers in the form of a mysterious horror film that is Real Killers, where the James brothers are on the loose again, out and about trying to claim new victims.
