October has arrived, Halloween is near – and our screens are filling up with horrors.

Now is the perfect time to enjoy losing yourself in a scary film or creepy TV show.

There’s a truckload of new releases, too – in part thanks to cinemas finally reopening around the UK.

Some of these Halloween film and TV picks are downright terrifying, while others are more of a mystery, and some a tad comedic.

But they’re the ideal way to embrace 2021’s spookiest season.

The best new horrors and thrillers watch for Halloween 2021

Candyman (2021)

Still in UK cinemas in early October, the 2021 reversion of Candyman is a fresh approach to the eerie urban legend.

It was written by Jordan Peele, the director behind Get Out and Up – which you can rent on Amazon Prime.

Where to watch: The cinema

Halloween (1978)

OK, so there’s nothing ‘new’ about the 1978 horror classic Halloween, starring Jamie Lee Curtis.

But it is new to Netflix this month, arriving on October 1.

Where to watch: Netflix UK

Halloween Kills (2021)

Perhaps you should catch up on the entire Halloween back catalogue (there are 12 films, if you’ve time) – or the 2018 reboot entitled Halloween.

Its follow-up Halloween Kills, is out in cinemas across the UK from Friday, October 15. Michael Myers is back again for another slasher massacre.

Keep your eyes peeled next year for the sequel, Halloween Ends.

Last Night In Soho (2021)

An epic trailer makes a lot of promises that Edgar Wright’s new horror, Last Night In Soho, will be worth a watch.

Starring Matt Smith, Thomasin Mackenzie and Anya Taylor-Joy, it’s a tale of the swinging 60s, time travel-fuelled obsession and the (probably deadly) consequences.

After many pandemic delays, the film is scheduled to be out October 29.

Locke & Key (Series 2)

More supernatural and mysterious than goosebump-inducing, the second series of Netflix’s Locke & Key is back on October 22.

Where to watch: Netflix UK

Night Teeth (2021)

One for teens and young adults. Disney Channel darling Debby Ryan stars as party-loving vampire.

Expect lots of vampire drama and a human getting caught up in the mix. Oh, and Megan Fox is in it.

Where to watch: Netflix UK

Antlers (2021)

A stellar cast makes up Antlers, a 2021 horror/mystery release delayed by the pandemic.

The trailer is sufficiently unsettling. Keri Russell stars as a schoolteacher who becomes increasingly concerned about one of her pupils, who appears to be embodied by a terrifying create.

Its release date is billed as October 29, so it should be out in UK cinemas then. Watch this space.

Where to watch: TBC

You (Series 3)

The deeply disturbing murderous psychopath Joe (played by the very charming Gossip Girl star Penn Badgley) and his equally (more?) murderous partner Love return for the third series of You.

Unfortunately for everyone who knows them, it looks from the trailer that having a baby and settling down in the California suburbs hasn’t changed their psychotic ways one bit.

Series three drops on October 15.

Where to watch: Netflix UK

I Know What You Did Last Summer (2021)

An Amazon series based on the 1997 stalker thriller I Know What You Did Last Summer.

Sadly, no Sarah Michelle Gellar or Freddie Prinze Jr in the remake (that we know of). Out October 15.

Where to watch: Amazon Prime

There’s Someone Inside Your House (2021)

Slasher flick There’s Someone Inside Your House stars Sydney Park (of The Walking Dead fame) as a student who’s recently moved from Hawaii to a tiny town in Nebraska.

Worse still, she arrives at her new high school to find a killer on the loose, with a mission to murder all of her classmates and reveal all their darkest secrets. Who could it be?

The film lands on Wednesday, October 6.

Where to watch: Netflix UK

Bingo Hell (2021)

An unexpected addition to the upcoming horror-esque releases for October, which is free to watch with Amazon Prime.

Bingo Hell is a Welcome To The Blumhouse film, featuring a senior woman, Lupita, fights to keep her favourite Oak Springs bingo hall – and its patrons – alive.

There are a number of movies in the series, also on Prime, including Madres and Black As Night.

Where to watch: Amazon Prime

Happy Death Day 2U (2019)

2017’s Happy Death Day is humorous rather than horrifying – but that’s the point. College student Tree is forced to relive the day of her death over and over and over.

The black comedy’s sequel, Happy Death Day 2U, poor Tree enters another time loop – this time with her group of friends. It’s a very similar story, but an easy, entertaining watch.
