Just a few days are left for Halloween now, and it’s time to start planning your Halloween themed party, candies, and costumes. At the end of the day, Halloween is incomplete without watching horror movies and series.
There are so many streaming platforms available now, Netflix isn’t the only one. But if you have Netflix and perhaps you know that it offers thousands of movies and series under scary and horror categories.
The numbers are growing with each week passing by ever since it is competing against other streaming platforms. But that, you don’t have to worry about.
Now, not everyone is fond of watching horror movies on Halloween, some like the concept of episodes which we call ‘series.’ So, sit tight as here is a list of 22 best Tv series on Netflix for Halloween 2021.
Stranger Things – Best TV Series on Netflix
Netflix’s Stranger Things is not an unknown name. The science-fiction horror series is Netflix’s most-watched series. Netflix claimed that the third season of the show has set a record of viewership. More than 40.7 million household accounts had watched the show only during the weekend globally. Everything is great about this show.
The Duffer Brothers have created a sci-fi horror story where the heroes are the kids set in the 80s’. The kid actors who have performed are incredibly good.
All three seasons of ‘Stranger Things’ have fun elements, suspense, gothic background, teenage romance, and exciting action sequences together that hold the series so well, and so does the attention of the audience.
So, on the Halloween holiday, you can surely watch this incredible TV series on Netflix all over again.
The Haunting of the Hill House
‘The haunting of the Hill House’ is a great horror TV series on Netflix to watch on Halloween this year. The series is based on a novel of the same name as Shirley Jackson.
The story takes place in two different periods: One, the time when the five children, along with their parents spent in Hill House and other, in the present day, when all the siblings are grown up but tormented by the spirits of Hill House.
There is a slow process in developing the story. It’s emotional at the same time terrifying and an excellent series to enjoy watching on a Halloween holiday specially at night.
Haunted is a documentary and supernatural drama Tv series that attempts to tell supernatural stories that real people have experienced in their course of life. There are two seasons, each having six- episodes with different horror stories. Netflix has released the second season of ‘Haunted’ this October meant for ‘Halloween.’
Midnight Mass – Best Tv Series on Netflix for Halloween
I believe ‘Midnight Mass’ is Mike Flanagan’s, one of the best works over the years. There are no jump scares or horror images that will make you have sleepless nights.
The content is extremely well curated, supported by excellent screenplay and performances by each actor. After each episode, you will keep thinking about the subject matter. Flanagan has bravely put together faith vs horror.
Here, the scary images are not the vampire sucking blood but the people’s faith on God of the Crockett Island that’s fearsome.
This newly added series is the best to watch on Halloween with your family.
The Haunting of Bly Manor
‘The Haunting of Bly Manor’ is slow, character oriented and takes its time to build the story. You need to keep patience while watching this amazing series.
There are a few scenes that give you a thrill but not more than a horror series, as the episodes go on it unfolds stories. Mike Flanagan’s ‘The Haunting of Bly manor’ has so many layers that finishes with a beautiful heartache.
Yes, it’s a ghost story but the end of the series makes it more memorable. The best thing about watching a Flanagan’s movie or series is it gives a surprising twist at the end.
Penny Dreadful is a British horror-drama TV show, set in Victorian London depicts a psychological and historical supernatural content. It draws characters from history like Dracula, Dorian Gray, Frankenstein, and more so.
The stories are unique yet grim; also you will find a lot of adults and grotesque images, so ‘Penny Dreadful’ isn’t for below 18+. The show comprised of total 27 episodes, so it’s a long series to watch all day and night on Halloween.
‘Bates Motel’ is one of the best psycho-thriller TV series to watch on Netflix. The show is inspired by Alfred Hitchcock’s ‘Psycho.’ The character Norman Bates is an innocent boy who becomes a monster as he grows and subconsciously is played continuously by his mother, Norma Bates.
You have to patiently watch “Bates Motel” to understand the psychology of Norman. He is a complex, unpredictable, and dangerous character to watch. Throughout the five seasons, there are tons of spine-chilling scenes and exciting moments that you can binge-watch on Halloween.
American Horror Story
American Horror Story has been made clearly, keeping in mind about Halloween. There are total of 9 seasons with 100 episodes. These are miniseries, with each season having a different set of characters and storyline. Some episodes are even inspired by real events. Each season have miniseries of different subtitle like ‘Murder,’ ‘Coven,’ ‘Asylum’ and etc.
The best thing about the American horror story is you don’t have to watch in sequence, you can watch any miniseries of season. But this show is perhaps the longest-running horror TV series that is streaming on Netflix.
Like ‘The Haunting of Hill House,’ the French horror TV series is far creepier and frightening to watch. This is an eight-episode season that follows the story of a young horror genre of a writer named Emma, who had a very disturbing childhood. She turned her nightmares into writing books, and now she is one of the best-selling horror authors.
After a tragedy, when she came back to her hometown, she realized that her nightmares do exist, and it has possessed the mother of her childhood friend. Emma and her group of friends keep fighting the evil spirit but does she get rid of Marianne?
I would definitely recommend any horror fan to watch Marianne on the Halloween holiday.
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Sabrina Spellman, a teenage girl who is a half-witch, lives with her two-witch aunt. She doesn’t want to follow the dark lord and his rules, but her destiny desired her to be. On her 16th birthday, she signed the Book of Beast and gained incredible power that she is going to use against the dark lord.
With Halloween coming on its way, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, a not so dark series like The Haunting of Hill House, is an excellent series to watch on Netflix for Halloween this year.
More than horror, the show is revolving around the supernatural element and the presence of Satan, the demon.
Ghoul is an Indian horror series on Netflix based on folklore. The setting and theme of the story are gothic and satirical on the religious aspect. Also, Ghoul is Netflix’s first horror series from India that has got a good response from the audience.
The story follows Nida Rahim, who is a member of the advanced interrogation squad. When a notorious terrorist is being held captivated to interrogate weird incidents start to happen with Nida. Later, she got to know that his body is possessed by a demon to take revenge on Nida’s father’s death.
Sujoy Ghosh’s directorial ‘Typewriter’ is another Indian horror series, set in a quaint town in Goa where a spooky-looking Bardez villa is haunted by a demonic spirit. The villa is owned by an author who is dead, and his granddaughter now staying with her family. She started feeling weird, like the presence of some negative spirit in the villa.
So, what happened in the end and how the story ends, you can watch this Indian series this Halloween at home on Netflix.
Netflix’s ‘You’ is a psychological thriller that tells the story of a bookstore manager who stalks an aspiring female writer. They fell in love, but Joe gets obsessed with his ladylove eventually, the narrative slips into a dangerous turn from a sweet love story.
‘You’ is an addictive show, and while watching it will make you realize that social media world is not safe at all.
It is a great show to watch on Halloween.
Netflix has brought this show for kids on Halloween month. It is a horror collection of series, where an unidentified figure wearing a hockey mask is messing with his Instamatic camera. He is using it as a horror device. It isn’t that scary compared to other horror TV series on Netflix, but an average show that your teenage son or daughter can watch.
The Walking Dead
If you don’t want to spend the Halloween watching scary or grim episodes instead would love to see the zombie-filled city and humankind fighting the odds to survive, then the best I could recommend is ‘The Walking Dead.’
AMC’s ‘The Walking Dead’ is the highest-rated series on Netflix, and recently season 10 is out and streaming. The story is about Rick Grimes and several others who are running away from the herd of flesh-eating zombies. As time passes by, the strangers become family, and they are settling down in a community. The story followed by many tragic events and deaths.
‘Dark’ is a German-language Netflix Original TV series, which is a dark, time travel creepy story. It is a bit confusing as it displays multi-generations on each period of time. The first season of ‘Dark’ highly focuses on unraveling the mystery of time travel where the protagonist discovers a cave in the forest that took him to another period.
This German series is one of the underrated shows on Netflix that you can enjoy watching this Halloween.
I found Hemlock Grove one of the darkest themed TV series about werewolves. It has a surreal setting and atmosphere that invokes a more shaded mode of story and characters struggling with their real identities. ‘Hemlock Grove’ is not for everyone, but on a Halloween night you can binge-watch this series.
Slasher is a horror anthology series on Netflix that tells different stories where a killer continues to kills at every season. There is no story; every season is very repetitive still the setting and atmosphere of each story is goofy and dark. The killer of each season chase, and their killing pattern is brutal.
Slasher would be my last option to watch on Halloween.
One of the most popular vampire Tv series to watch is ‘The Originals,’ where the story centers around the Mikaelson siblings, who are the original vampires. They are the most powerful vampires of New Orleans and dominates the community.
Among the siblings, Klaus is the most notorious and Elijah is the most sensible and powerful vampire. The family has lived for centuries, and they have only one motto ‘family comes first.’ They protect each other from the witch and werewolf’s community.
It is an exciting show to watch which has a story, and each character is equally important and has given space to act.
So, if you are a vampire fan, The Originals is the best Tv series on Netflix for Halloween 2019.
The Good Witch
‘The Good Witch,’ like the name suggests is a delightful and beautiful series of stories about Cassie Nightingale and her daughter Grace who met their neighbor Dr. Sam Radford and his son. Cassie has magical powers that she uses to heal others and spread happiness around her.
One can watch ‘The Good Witch’ and enjoy spreading happiness among themselves as well. It is an elegant and clean show; even children can watch how the mother-daughter duo brings joy with their charming magic in the small town of Middleton.
Like ‘The Walking Dead,’ ‘Black Summer’ is also a zombie apocalypse drama series where the world is on the verge of getting collapse and people are turning into the flesh-eating zombies, survivors’ band together to fight the situation and try to survive and get back to their loved ones.
This is pretty much the story is, and the rest of the series contains numerous zombie attacks, gunfights and etc. It only has one season, and if you don’t watch to binge-watch the long hours of zombie series, the ‘Black summer’ will serve the purpose.
‘The Rain’ is a Danish post-apocalyptic series drama where two siblings are left inside a safe bunker by their father to survive the world. After spending years, both discovered that their father is alive and working in a lab to find the cure of the virus. Soon, tragic incidents turn the brother and sister against each other.
It is a fascinating and unique series to watch, so I am not revealing here the whole story. You can watch this Danish TV series with English subtitles on this Halloween.
So, the above-mentioned list are the 22 best TV series for Halloween 2021. These are not any randomly selected series on Netflix, I have watched many, and among the many, I could say these are the preferable shows for Halloween.
