Best horror movies and series streaming on Stan
Wolf Creek is one of Australia’s quintessential horror movies. The film follows a group of tourists who break down in the middle of the desert and are hunted down by a sadistic serial killer.
Wolf Creek was so popular it spawned a sequel and an original series on Stan.
The new sci-fi horror series From terrified me from the trailer alone. The series takes place in a nightmarish town that traps everyone who enters and is surrounded by a forest full of terrifying nocturnal creatures. No, thank you.
From is made by the producers of Lost so you just know you’re in for as big a mystery as you are for thrills.
Scream is a classic. You can’t go past it. The slasher film to end all slasher films, Scream follows a series of murders that takes place in the typically quiet town of Woodsboro, California.
The killer’s identity is hidden behind a Ghostface mask, but this is a small town so it’s always someone you know.
Sinister has everything needed to be one of the scariest movies of all time and, according to science, it is just that.
The film, by Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson, follows a true-crime writer who discovers a box of 8mm tapes detailing the murders he’s writing about. After watching them things take, well, a sinister turn.
I had happily avoided clown movies my entire life until the IT remake came along in 2017. I have to admit it was pretty good, even if I watched half of it through my fingers.
IT takes place in the summer of 1989 where a small group of outcast kids band together to take down the shape-shifting supernatural monster that is terrorising the children of their town.
