Halloween is just days away and there’s only one place to be when the 31st comes around. At home, with Netflix and a bucket of monster shaped chocolate of course. From masked murderers chasing gullible teens to an oddly charming cannibal with a penchant for haute cuisine, the streaming site has a bevy of creepy shows to devour in one sitting. Here are six horror themed shows guaranteed to get you in the Halloween spirit.
American Horror Story’s big hyped up twist has finally been revealed and although many people did predict it in some way or another, the way that Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are playing with narrative and form should be applauded. The first five episodes presented us with talking head pieces to camera and found footage re-enactment. We learn in episode 6 that the talking head pieces were played by the real Matt, Shelby and Lee and that everything that happened in the re-enactment was indeed filmed by actors. It’s a bizarre thing to be shown five episodes of horrific things happening to Matt, Shelby and Lee only to find out that almost everything we’ve seen didn’t actually happen and that, in fact, the rest of the world is convinced that their retelling of events is a work of fiction and that Lee did in fact murder her husband Mason.
American Horror Story had definitely lost its way with Freak Show and Hotel, meaning that the anonymously themed season six had a lot resting on its shoulders to bring the show back to its Murder House and Asylum glory days. So when episode one started and we got the cold open with no familiar title credits and no iconic music instead throwing us straight into a disorientating documentary style narration from Lily Rabe and Andrew Holland it was absolutely clear that this would be a season unlike any that had come before it. At first I as left disappointed by the lack of opening titles and the weakness of the finally revealed theme. ‘My Roanoke Nightmare’ isn’t an instantly recognisable as ‘Hotel’ or ‘Asylum’ focusing on a true story that saw an entire island colony disappear and the popular myth of croatoan surfacing.
Performers of all stripes are always searching for ‘chameleon-like’ qualities in their art.

The Alfred Rosenheim Mansion was available to rent for a cool $1450 (£1006) a night on Airbnb and received positive reviews before it was mysteriously removed from the listings.
