Set in a post-apocalyptic Glendale, California, the horror-comedy is about Josh (Colin Ford) and a ragtag group of misfits who are searching for his missing girlfriend while fending off zombies. The series also stars Matthew Broderick (Ferris Bueller’s Day Off), Alyvia Alyn Lind (Future Man), and Cody Kearsley (Riverdale). The eight-episode first season was released earlier this week, just in time for Halloween!


The Haunting of Hill House

One of Netflix’s most frightening originals to date, the story flashes between the past and present as the Crain family deals with memories from their old home and the horrors that drove them away from it. The psychological horror stars Carla Gugino (Jett), Michiel Huisman (Game of Thrones) and Annabeth Gish (Halt and Catch Fire). Watch it all in a day if you dare!


Living through your early twenties is hard enough, but Amy (Cara Theobold) and Raquel (Susan Wokoma) have it so much worse as they have the added hurdle of hunting demons. The six-part horror-comedy series is perfect for an afternoon or evening binge.

People share their real-life horror stories, supernatural encounters, and unexplained phenomena in this spine-tingling original series.

The first season has four episodes while the second has eight, making it a quick and easy binge.


In this Netflix Original from Australia, six people return from the dead with no memory of who they were and what ended their lives. All three seasons of the paranormal drama are available to watch, and at six episodes apiece, it would be a great weekend binge.

The dark horror-comedy was cancelled earlier this year, but that shouldn’t stop you from watching all three seasons.

Hemlock Grove

One of Netflix’s first originals, Hemlock Grove takes place in a Pennsylvania town with dark secrets, a twisted past … and werewolves. The horror series, produced by Eli Roth (Hostel), and starring Famke Janssen (X-Men) and Bill Skarsgård (It), had three seasons on the streamer before it was cancelled.

It’s hard to believe that some people haven’t watched Stranger Things yet, considering the worldwide phenomenon it sparked and the launching of superstar careers for its young cast like Millie Bobby Brown and Finn Wolfhard. If you like your scares with a healthy dose of 80s nostalgia and a killer soundtrack, this show is for you. Three seasons are on Netflix right now, and a fourth season is currently in production.
