Starting with the movies, this Halloween is the best time to catch recent South Korean horror #Alive which proved to be a worldwide hit when it landed last month. Also don’t miss Martin Freeman-starring thriller Cargo and Day of the Dead: Bloodlines, the second remake of zombie master George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead, both from 2018. Make sure to give The Girl with All the Gifts a go, too, as it’s a vastly under-appreciated take on the genre.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a couple of familiar classics, why not revisit your childhood by watching Scooby-Doo on Zombie Island, which remains the best movie outing for Mystery Inc. What’s more, Netflix has the very first Evil Dead movie up right now. You could stick that on ahead of a bingewatch of all three seasons of Ash vs. Evil Dead, which are also available.
Moving on to the TV side of things, then, Netflix has all five seasons of The CW’s recently-concluded iZombie and original Santa Clarita Diet, the comedy-horror series starring Drew Barrymore. British limited series Deadset, from Black Mirror creator Charlie Brooker, can also be found. Or, alternatively, there’s always the undisputed king of undead TV – The Walking Dead. Netflix currently has the first nine seasons in its library. The tenth will follow at a later date.
