What We’re Watching: Halloween Edition

From classic horror to familiar dystopias, these are the films and show that are scaring the office silly this Halloween.

Whether you’re in the mood for some light goth vibes, classic horror, or if you’re looking to scare yourself with some dystopia that feels all too real, the Screenhub and ArtsHub offices have some seasonal suggestions for you to watch this Halloween. 


There’s plenty of seasonal treats to stream this spooky season. Personally I’ve been revisiting an old favourite: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, all seven seasons of which are currently on Stan. SBS On Demand is also hosting a bunch of fantastic horror films, in honour of the season, including Bong Joon-Ho’s The Host, Rosemary’s Baby, and gory cannibal slasher Bone Tomahawk. 

For ArtsHub’s CEO Sol Wise, a great horror film ages like a fine wine: he recently introduced Silence of the Lambs to his two (adult) kids, who both loved it.
