It’s a chilly weekend, it’s October and BoJo is shutting all the pubs at 10pm – so the only thing you can really do this weekend is sink your teeth into some of Netflix’s best spooky series’. We’ve rounded up our top five faves – some old, some new – that you can settle down and enjoy this weekend. Yes, they might leave you with a bit of a fright, but hey! It’s halloween, right?

The Haunting Of Bly Manor

The follow-up series from The Haunting Of Hill House, The Haunting Of Bly Manor features the same cast (SO American Horror Story of them) in brand-new roles. This series has a lot of twists and turns, so you’ll need to put your phone down and pay attention! The general story follows Dani, an American au pair for two kids that live in a haunted house. It’s not ‘jumpy’ as such, just a bit creepy in parts.


Exploring the origin of the phrase “serial killer”, Mindhunter follows two FBI agents that are studying the minds of serial killers in order to create a profile that will help them stop and catch murderers in the future. The Ed Kemper-esque character in this show is seriously weird and helps the FBI by unveiling his chequered past.

The Fall

In this globally talked-about show, Sully from X-Files and Christian Grey from Fifty Shades play cat and mouse. Jamie Dornan is a serial killer who’s being hunted by the Metropolitan Police. He hides in plain sight and a lot of drama ensues.

The Haunting Of Hill House

As we mentioned, The Haunting Of Hill House is big sister to Bly Manor and tells the story of, well, a haunted house. It flicks between past and present and it has some very jumpy moments – so beware! This is not a series for the faint of heart.


Haunted is a reality show where people sit down with their friends and family and tell them terrifying stories from their past. The stories are re-enacted in grizzly detail and creepy clowns make a little cameo – y’know, just for fun.
