A sequel to the 2015 movie, the second installation tells the story of two kids who accidentally release a scary doll, Slappy the Dummy, and monsters from the “Goosebumps” book, causing a wave of destruction on Halloween night.



“Haunted Halloween” is an American horror comedy film directed by Ari Sandel and written by Rob Lieber, based on a story by Lieber and Darren Lemke.

“Asih”, adapted from the novel by Risa Sarasvati, is about a ghost that previously appeared in the movie “Danur”. The spin-off is a story about a woman who was disowned after she fell pregnant by her boyfriend. The shock turned her mad and she ended up murdering her own child. Watch the film for more details.



For those planning to watch horror movies at home, the Netflix original “Apostle” is an option. Directed by Gareth Evans who is known for “The Raid”, this movie is a thriller about religious cults in 1905.

It is the eleventh instalment in the Halloween film series, and a direct sequel to the 1978 film of the same name. Directed by David Gordon Green, the movie starts with Laurie Strode who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
