5 Netflix Original horror movies to watch this Halloween

It’s time for Netflix and Chills with a range of their newest spooky original content offerings, perfect for All Hallows’ Eve…


IN THE SHADOW OF THE MOON 

In 1988, Philadelphia police officer Thomas Lockhart (Boyd Holbrook), hungry to become a detective, begins tracking a serial killer who mysteriously resurfaces every nine years. But when the killer’s crimes begin to defy all scientific explanation, Locke’s obsession with finding the truth threatens to destroy his career, his family, and possibly his sanity. Dexter’s Micheal C Hall stars in this one and is in top form as he unravels and his obsession with the killer grows…

IN THE TALL GRASS 

When siblings Becky and Cal hear the cries of a young boy lost within a field of tall grass, they venture in to rescue him, only to become ensnared themselves by a sinister force that quickly disorients and separates them. Cut off from the world and unable to escape the field’s tightening grip, they soon discover that the only thing worse than getting lost is being found. Based on the novella by Stephen King and Joe Hill. This is a fresh departure from Netflix’s usual thrillers with enough scares to keep horror fans scared and satisfied…

FRACTURED 

Driving home after a tense holiday weekend with his in-laws, Ray Monroe (Sam Worthington), a well-meaning but overwhelmed family man, pulls into a rest area with his wife Joanne and daughter Peri. The trip takes a turn for the worse when Peri is hurt in an accident and the family rushes to a nearby emergency room. After being sent away for further testing Peri and Joanne vanish and all records of their visit disappear. The hospital staff are dubious, they know nothing of his family. Ray has to save his family, before it’s too late. A twisty, enjoyable horror.

ELI 

ELI is the story of a young boy (Charlie Shotwell) plagued with an unknown, debilitating illness that requires him to live completely sealed off from the outside world. After exhausting every option, his parents (Kelly Reilly and Max Martini) put their trust – and his life – in the hands of a doctor whose experimental, cutting edge treatments at her clean house facility may hold Eli’s last hope. As he undergoes the tremendously intense process that could potentially cure him, he begins to be haunted by experiences that make him question who he can trust – and what exactly is lurking inside the house. You’ll never guess that ending.

RATTLESNAKE

Katrina (Carmen Ejogo) is a single mother driving cross country to start a new life with her young daughter Clara (Apollina Pratt) when their car breaks down in the middle of nowhere. As Katrina changes the tire, Clara wanders off the desert road and is bitten by a venomous rattlesnake. Desperate to save her daughter’s life, Katrina accepts the help of a mysterious woman, but after she miraculously heals Clara, Katrina is asked to repay the good deed by killing a stranger in exchange for the life saved. How far would you go to save a loved one? Katrina doesn’t have long to find out.
