Here's Johnny! Netflix is stepping up its game with horror films, just in time for Halloween, by including Stephen King's The Shining.

The 'Netflix and Chills' lineup will include some cult classic films, along with some hair-raising new shows.

Halloween just wouldn't be Halloween without a scary Stephen King film, so why not a true terrifying classic like The Shining? Jack Nicholson is already a pretty scary guy, add in a haunted hotel, terrorising spirits, a psychic child and halls filled with blood, and you've got a good idea why you shouldn't go into room 237.


Plenty of Netflix original additions are definitely ones to watch for.

It all kicks off with Creeped Out (4 October), a kid-oriented anthology shows of freaky stories. There's also some horrific poetic justice to be found in Malevolent (5 October).

In mid-October things get busier the additions of the cult-themed Apostle, the novel adaptation The Haunting of Hill House and with The Curious Creations of Christine McConnell think Bake Off for horror fans as the wickedly talented baker and artist, Christine McConnell welcomes audiences into her terrifyingly delicious home to create delectable confections and hauntingly disturbing decor with the help of her colorful collection of creatures.

If real-life accounts of the paranormal are more your thing Haunted (19 October) gives us a look into a collection of first-person accounts from people who claim to have seen supernatural events.

However,its towards the end October that Netflix releases the big guns - a whole host of big-name originals.

For all of you obsessed with the 90s series Sabrina The Teenage Witch, you'll be excited to know the Riverdale-based series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina will finally make its debut.

Along with this Castlevania's long-expected second season arrives at the same time.

It's not ideal that we have to wait longer for the originals, but hopefully they'll be worth the wait - and there is plenty of terrifying tales to keep you going in the meantime.
