Wondering What To Watch This Halloween?

If you enjoy being scared then we’ve got you covered, with some of our favourite Fears gathered safely together in one place on Channel 4 streaming. The FILMFEAR collection features popular hits and cult movies old and new, from the UK, Hollywood and around the world.  

For a classic combination of action and suspense, there’s no way of tiptoeing around A QUIET PLACE PART II. This blockbuster horror/sci-fi sequel features an A-list cast with Emily Blunt and Cillian Murphy, plus some of the most terrifying creatures ever put on screen!  

If you want to discover the hottest new name in scary movies right now, then look no further than our double-bill of HEREDITARY and MIDSOMMAR. Both films come from the twisted mind of writer/director Ari Aster, and he’ll lead you down some very dark paths indeed. Expect demons, creepy cults, ancient evil and Florence Pugh!

For many of us when we think of horror, there’s one name that springs to mind – Stephen King! The master of literary chills has always been popular with filmmakers, and you’ll find a pair of his creepy yarns in the FILMFEAR collection – unforgettable monster-mash THE MIST and the tale of a haunted hotel room 1408.

And for those who like to be on the cutting-edge, FILMFEAR presents two premieres that represent the future of scary movies. You won’t have seen anything like Julia Ducournau’s brilliant, bizarre TITANE and Prano Bailey-Bond’s slippery, sinister CENSOR – visionary filmmakers twisting horror into new shapes. Both of these films – and their bold creators – are backed by our own Film4 Productions.

FILMFEAR has been scaring our audiences silly for six years – it’s such a beloved part of the horror landscape that it even has a place on the big-screen, with a festival of previews and premieres at the renowned Home cinema in Manchester.
