NETFLIX HORROR-THON 2018: FOR THE LOVE OF HANTU HAUNTINGS
Most people wind down after a long hard day with their favourite shows, be it comedy, action or drama. But here in Malaysia, it wouldn’t be uncommon to come across a friend who unwinds to some horror.
That’s how much we Malaysians love scary movies! We don’t need an occasion like Halloween to enjoy thriller flicks because we enjoy scary movies all year long.
However, with the spooky celebrations just around the corner, our thirst for horror is probably going to need a little more quenching; Netflix fans are more likely to put on a horror flick in October, compared to the rest of the year. Netflix found that Malaysians are twice as likely to watch horror titles in the month of October compared to the rest of the year.
Well, you can now get ready for an entire MONTH of hair-raising moments because Netflix is feeding our love for all things scary with 31 Days of Horror!
Board up your windows, light some sage and don’t answer the door because from now until October 31, Netflix will be your home for horror. With original titles like Apostle, Haunted, The Night Comes For Us, The Haunting of Hill House, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina and so much more in store for you, you can expect 31 days of non-stop thrills and chills. Plus, for those who are loyal to killer classics, Netflix has everything from The Shining to Stephen King’s Children of the Corn.
