Some people need a simple RomCom to get them back to 100% while others need an adrenaline pumping action flick; there are others who are looking for adrenaline but not from action – from the scare! There’s no time like October to amp up the scare factor in your life with Halloween!
Netflix has upped the horror factor this October. This might be because Netflix found that people are more likely to watch a horror movie in October compared to any other time in the year. What’s more, Malaysians are twice as likely to do so.
What did Netflix do exactly? The company has lined up 31 days of hair raising, pulse stopping shows which will help quench your thirst for horror and shock you out of your seats! From classics such as The Shining and Stephen King’s Children of The Corn to all new Netflix originals, the month of October has been filled to brim with shows that will turn you white as a ghost!
