It's almost Halloween, which means you have to "creep it real" this weekend and have some great Halloween fun. Please be advised that all of the images in this blogs are screenshots I have taken for the blog!
So, for today's Blogtober post, I will be listing a few of my favorite "scary" Netflix shows that I strongly recommend you check out:
I wanted to put this at the top of the list because 1) it is a newer show than the others and 2) it is only on Netflix for a limited time. This show features actress Emma Stone and actor Jonah Hill, but in a way you've never seen them.
This Netflix original show features the two comedic actors playing serious roles. Hill's character Owen suffers from psychosis and Stone's character Annie is addicted to a drug that isn't even available the streets. They both meet at a trail for the drug Annie is addicted to. She claims she only feels happiness when she is on the drug. There is only one season of this show on Netflix "for a limited time."
If you're into creepy creatures and forces beyond your control, you should check out Supernatural. This long-running TV series follows brothers Sam and Dean as they travel around the country searching for their father, who is after the demon who killed their mother and Sam's girlfriend.
There are 13 seasons packed with tons of episodes for you to watch, so you'll likely need a few weeks to get through them all! However, you'll be happy you took the time to watch this show!
DROP DEAD DIVA
This one isn't scary, but is rather kind of creepy when you get to the bottom of it. This show follows Deb, a beautiful and rather ditsy model who wrecks and dies on her way to a tryout. Jane, a successful lawyer, is killed after an angry client finds out the the firm's partner slept with his wife.
Deb also dies and goes to heaven, but she hits the return button and comes back in Jane's body. She then has to live in Jane's body and try not to give away who she is to the people around her.
There are six seasons of Drop Dead Diva on Netflix, and they are so good! Check them out for a funny yet somewhat creepy show this season.
THE WALKING DEAD
What kind of Halloween-themed TV show list wouldn't include The Walking Dead? This TV series follows Rick, a police officer who finds himself recuperating in a hospital after a gun shot wound. He wakes up to find his town is now infested with zombies.
He spends the series trying to find his family and trying to survive the harsh zombie land he and the rest of the world has found itself in. There are currently eight seasons of The Walking Dead available on Netflix.
ONCE UPON A TIME
Fairytales, evil witches, dark magic. What else would make for a better show to binge this Halloween? Once follows the story of Emma Swan, a woman who finds herself in Storybrooke, Maine.
She quickly finds that she is actually living in a town full of storybook characters like Snow White, Prince Charming, Belle, and even Little Red Riding Hood. But the townspeople are cursed by the Evil Queen and must fight against her dark magic and the dark magic of others that are coming after them. There are currently seven seasons of Once Upon a Time on Netflix!
PRETTY LITTLE LIARS
Their frenemy Allison has disappeared, and they are being haunted by a menacing evil-doer who signs their messages "A."
Four girls quickly find it difficult to cover up their secretive pasts, deal with blackmail from A, and navigate their stressful and eventful lives. For a tale that is full of twists and turns that will keep you guessing who A could possibly be and what you will learn about the girls next, check out Pretty Little Liars. There are currently seven seasons of Pretty Little Liars on Netflix.
If you're a fan of crime shows and zombies, this is -- for lack of better words -- the love child of those two genres.
In iZombie, Liv is a young woman who finds herself at a boat party. Things quickly turn ugly and many people are killed, but Liv is somehow alive. She later finds that she is a zombie. She uses her zombie powers, which allow her to harness pieces of a case when she eats...urrr...pieces of the victim. This helps her solve several cases while also looking into what exactly happened to her that night on the boat. There are currently four seasons of iZombie on Netflix!
Those are the seven Netflix shows I really hope you check out this weekend when you're furthering yourself into your spooky settings before Halloween arrives. I hope you enjoyed this list.
