Halloween 2018: The six best horror movies you can stream in New Zealand

If there's one night every year you should watch a scary movie, it's Halloween.

This year there's a solid selection of horrors at the cinema to choose from, like Mandy, The Nun and of course Halloween - but getting terrified in the comfort of your own home is pretty special.

Here's six of the very best horror movies you can legally stream in New Zealand on the spookiest night of 2018:

Hereditary

Released this year, this was labelled the scariest movie in years by many critics for a good reason. It's bloody terrifying. (Available on Lightbox)

Apostle on Netflix is one of the best films you can stream in New Zealand.

Apostle

This creepy, slow-burn English folk horror with stabs of extreme ultraviolence from the director of The Raid movies is the newest movie on this list, and should not be missed.(Available on Netflix)

Get Out

Last year's smash-hit satirical horror comedy was adored by critics for being extremely smart - but it's also just flat-out, wildly entertaining. (Available on Neon)

Event Horizon is one of the best horrors you can stream in New Zealand on Halloween 2018.

Event Horizon

Space horror is one of my favourite sub-genres, but you can't always just watch the Alien movies. This late '90s Sam Neill movie is basically a dumbed-down, more violent The Shining... in space! It rules. (Available on Netflix)

Jigsaw is one of the best horrors you can stream in New Zealand on Halloween 2018.

Jigsaw

Sometimes, you don't want to watch a horror movie that's great at all - you just want to see something nice and explicitly gory. This reboot of the Saw franchise delivers in this way, and it delivers good. (Available on Neon)

It Follows is one of the best horrors you can stream in New Zealand on Halloween 2018.

It Follows

You can easily count on one hand the number of horrors released this decade that should make a list of the greatest of all time. This 2014 bone-chiller is definitely one of them. (Available on Lightbox)

Whatever you end up watching to celebrate Halloween, we hope you scare yourself witless!
