But for quick and easy scares for no cost, it could be just the thing for a Halloween night in.
We round up the best horror movies on IMDb TV UK:
Wes Craven’s hugely entertaining horror franchise balances laughs and genuine scares.
What We Do in the Shadows
Taiki Waititi’s vampire comedy is moving, clever and mercilessly quick, but most of all, it’s bleeding funny.
Richard Kelly’s enigmatic, mind-bending fusion of teen movie, horror flick and sci-fi thriller is an instant cult classic.
The Night Eats the World
This impressive French horror stands out as a zombie apocalypse tale with brains.
Leigh Janiak’s assured debut condenses all the alienating scenes from a marriage into an understated, atmospheric horror.
A thoroughly modern monster movie.
28 Days Later meets The Blair Witch Project as a mysterious virus turns the inhabitants of an apartment building into a horde of frenzied, bloodthirsty ghouls in the original 2007 found footage phenomenon that spawned a hit franchise and US remake.
Sean Bean is superb in this horror drama that more than lives up to the darkness of its title. He plays an envoy for a bishop in plague-stricken England in 1348, trying to track down a necromancer believed to be causing the disease. Accompanied by Eddie Redmayne as a naive monk, this mud-smeared medieval tale never irritates in its ambiguity. Quite the opposite.
This collage of The Shining conspiracy theories is a bonkers yet fascinating study of how art finds meaning with its audience.
The Crazies (1973)
Putting the “gory” in “allegory”, Romero’s film shows the madness of the Vietnam war in all its viral contagion.
The Crazies (2010)
Timothy Olyphant makes for a charismatic lead in this scarily effective remake of a Romero classic.
This supremely suspenseful babysitter-from-hell horror marks out Sarah Bolger as a talent to watch.
Hideo Nakata’s chilling, imaginative horror is as unsettling as it is influential.
A Dark Song
Gripping, unrelenting and unique, you’ve never seen a haunted house movie like this.
The Dark (2018)
The Dark is an admirably unique spin on the undead that doesn’t quite overcome its structural issues.
This ambitious micro-budget sci-fi will blow your fragile little mind.
A seminal horror from the disturbed mind of maestro Clive Barker.
Veronica (Winona Ryder) is part of the most popular clique at her high school, but she disapproves of the other girls’ cruel behaviour. When she and her new boyfriend, JD (Christian Slater), confront clique leader Heather Chandler (Kim Walker) and accidentally poison her, they make it appear a suicide.
This abduction thriller gives erotomania and psychopathy several new twists.
I Am Not a Serial Killer
This coming-of-age horror is a creepily charming treat.
