Halloween is kicking off the holiday season and our plan for the weekend is to stay in and get ourselves some chills and thrills with Netflix.
The truth is, Netflix has a bank of countless spine-chilling contents, and no one could ever run out of options. From horror satire American Psycho to the undervalued gem, I’m Thinking of Ending Things that keeps you on the edge of your seat, we curated our Halloween watchlist so that you don't have to spend the night scrolling through grids.
Scroll down to find out what's on our watchlist:
AMERICAN PSYCHO, 2000
Oldie but goldie. Watch Christian Bale plays the self-obsessed Wall Street banker Patrick Bateman who never allow anyone to challenge his status. Even the smallest thing could trigger him to kill. And if you watch a little bit closer, you will realise the movie itself is a giant metaphor of the capitalist world we live in.
I’M THINKING OF ENDING THINGS, 2020
Lucy and her new boyfriend Jake leave the city to visit his parents’ secluded farm. As things get strange and unsettling, we’re moving closer to the truth. From the director of Being John Malkovich and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I’m Thinking of Ending Things uncovers the unfortunate human nature in the most uncomfortable yet beautiful ways.
GOOD TIME, 2017
An attempt of bank robbery backfires, leading to Connie and Nick’s longest night in New York. To say the movie is a roller coaster ride is an understatement, starring Robert Pattinson, the soon-to-be Batman indie darling and Benny Safdie, Good Time triggers anxiety for 100 minutes straight through despair and helplessness.
UNCUT GEMS, 2019
If Good Time is your cup of tea, sit back and click start on Uncut Gems for more anxiety-inducing trial. Directed by Josh and Benny Safdie, the powerful follow-up to Good Time tells the tale of how Adam Sandler’s Howard Ratner and his mounting greed pave the path to his own destruction. And unlike the helplessness in Good Time, Uncut Gems gets on audience’s nerves with loud conversations and extremely disturbing laughter.
SVAHA: THE SIXTH FINGER, 2019
Pastor Park who researches religious cult finds himself whisked into something far more dreadful than he thinks, and everything seems to be connected to the mysterious group "Deer Mountain" and the twin sisters born in the year 1999. The story delves into the parallel values among different religions and evokes a fresh angle to think and question about beliefs, faith, good and evil. Add Svaha to your queue if you love the epic Korean mystery thriller The Wailing.
