HALLOWEEN MOVIES ON DISNEY PLUS – 28 DAYS LATER
28 Days is Danny Boyle’s seminal horror film set in the aftermath of an outbreak of an incurable virus in London.
The film introduced the idea of speedy zombies, ditching the slow lumbering ones that had traditionally been seen in horror films ever since George A Romero’s Night of the Living Dead.
The sequel to 28 Days Later, 28 Weeks Later, is also available on Disney Plus as is another great film from the Trainspotting director – the brilliant Sunshine.

HALLOWEEN TV SHOWS ON DISNEY PLUS – BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER
Every single episode of the smash hit 90s TV show Buffy the Vampire Slayer is available on Disney Plus.
An absolutely iconic show which launched Sarah Michelle Gellar into stardom, there are so many brilliant Buffy episodes you can choose to watch for the first time or rewatch.
If you’re looking for something to scare you silly then your best pick is season 4 episode Hush.
In this episode Buffy and the Scooby Gang are left unable to speak after a group known as The Gentlemen steal the hearts and voices of people in Sunnydale.
It’s terrifying stuff, and just one look at The Gentlemen is enough to give you nightmares.
The X Files – another iconic 90s show – is also available on Disney Plus
HALLOWEEN TV SHOWS ON DISNEY PLUS – THE X-FILES
Another 90s classic, The X-Files made Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny household names, spawned an extremely catchy Catatonia song and brought the anthology TV show format back into the spotlight.
While there are over-arching plot threads, one of the best things about The X Files is you can dip into plenty of episodes without seeing any others.
That’s because the majority of The X Files episodes are self-contained stories.
If you’re wondering where to start season one episode Squeeze is a classic monster of the week tale.
While if you’re after something truly disturbing then season 4 episode Home is the one you’re after.
The episode, which has an 18 rating for a reason, was banned from being shown on TV after first airing due to it being so controversial.
Thankfully, if you want to see why it caused such a fuss it’s available on Disney Plus – but be warned, you need a strong stomach to watch it. It ain’t for the faint of heart.
