The best horror movies on Sky Cinema and NOW

When it comes to the horror classics this Halloween, there’s one place to go: Sky Cinema. You won’t find a silent 1920s flick here, nor many foreign gems, but from The Shining to Evil Dead, there are scares aplenty.

Don’t have Sky? A NOW NOW Cinema Membership costs £11.99 a month and gives you access to all of the Sky Cinema catalogue, both live and on-demand – and, as such, you can expect the usual suspects, from critically-acclaimed genre stalwarts to a splattering of modern gems.
