11 TV Shows To Watch This October

TV Shows To Watch This October/Halloween Blog 2017  Petit Belle Chaton


Welcome back to day fifteen of my countdown to Halloween series, where I share all of my favourite Halloween films. Today's post is a little bit different and instead of a film, I'm going to share all of the tv shows that are a must watch this Halloween.


01. Goosebumps.

"...You must beware, you're in for a scare."

 I absolutely adored Goosebumps as a child and if you were a 90's kid like me, I'm sure you watched it and loved it too. My older brother even watched it, so it meant I began watching it very young. Every episode is about something new so you can watch it in any order you like. I remember being so terrified of some of the episodes. Even now, I find some of the episodes incredibly creepy. Admittedly, others are just awful (like the one about the potato!!!) If you want to feel all of those nostalgic feels, Netflix has added all four seasons and the specials to their streaming service, so get watching! I also recently found out that total babe Ryan Gosling is in one of the episodes (Say Cheese and Die S1E15), so keep an eye out for him!

02. Pretty Little Liars

"Two can keep a secret if one of them is dead"
Technically, this primarily isn't Halloween related in the slightest but honestly, this is a pretty creepy show all around anyway and they also have a few Halloween specials that are even creepier than usual. This is also another show that has all seasons on Netflix and if you're one of those rare people that haven't already seen this, you must binge watch it asap! I can't even begin to explain the plot of this, there are so many twists and turns that will keep you completely gripped until the very end...

03. American Horror Story
"All monsters are human."
And talking of binge-watching things on Netflix...this also needs to be on your list if you haven't yet seen it. Every season has a completely different story and theme such as Murder House, Asylum, Coven, Freak Show, Hotel, Roanoke and Cult. If you're a huge horror film fan, you will be addicted to this in no time and your obsession with Evan Peters will begin.

04. The Worst Witch 
"I see everything, Mildred Hubble!"

Like I said before, I grew up in the late 90's and if you did too, chances are all you wanted as a kid was to go off to a boarding school and train to become a witch or wizard in a magical castle... The Worst Witch was one of my favourite shows for this very reason. It also stars Academy nominated Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything) and Una Stubbs, who's most well known for her portrayal of Mrs Hudson in Sherlock.

05. Black Mirror

"Don't come. I don't want you here. I don't know what is up with you, but I cannot have a 2.6 at my wedding."


Black Mirror is one of my favourite shows to exist and I cannot wait until it returns later this year. It's an anthology series with dark and satirical themes that focus on and examine modern society. Every episode will have you gripped from the beginning as you try and work out what the twist is and a lot of episodes will leave you speechless. This is also available to watch on Netflix.

06. Are You Afraid Of The Dark?

"Submitted for the approval of the Midnight Society, I call this story..."
Honestly, this was the best show on Nickelodeon back in a day. If you missed it, it was about a group of teens that met in the middle of the woods and told each other spooky stories at midnight. I was so jealous of their little gang and wanted to do something similar with my friends but they were all too scared to even watch it...sad times. If you loved Goosebumps, you'll love this gem even more and some of the episodes are available to watch on YouTube!

07. Pyschoville

"I did a bad murder."
Created by Reece Shearsmith and Steve Pemberton, this show is the perfect combination of being creepy yet really funny at the same time. I'm not ashamed to admit I'm the biggest Reece and Steve fangirl, I love all the shows that they create together. They just know how to write something that is so incredibly hilarious but also quite sinister at the same time and Pyschoville is a perfect example of this. You'll be laughing but it all feels pretty chilling too and after watching this, you'll never be able to listen to that cheesy Superman song in the same way, ever again... My favourite characters are definitely David and Maureen, they are so incredibly convincing (and terrifying) and I'll always hold out hope for a spin-off show about them. The most impressive thing about this show is that one of the episodes was completely taken in one shot. This is currently still on Netflix and I really recommend you give it a go before it leaves.

08. Inside No.9

"Makes me feel like I exist." 


Also from Reece and Steve is Inside No.9, which I've spoken about on my blog before. It's an anthology series and every episode has a different sort of twist...just like Black Mirror. So if you're a fan of Black Mirror, you'll love this too! A new series of this is expected sometime next year and I cannot wait, until then you have three series' to binge. (2/3 seasons are currently on Netflix)

09. Stranger Things

"Friends don't lie.."
Last year Stranger Things hit our Netflix screens and everyone became obsessed and on the 27th, all episodes from season two will also be added...I cannot wait! If you're someone who loves references to the 80's and movies such as The Goonies and E.T, you will love this.

010. Sabrina the Teenage Witch

"When I'm happy, I eat. When I'm upset, I eat."
Another 90's gem. I spent so much of my time watching this as a kid, it was such a magical show and I also absolutely adored the animated version too! I just need to get the box set and I can finally relive all of the amazing quotes and one-liners.

011. Doctor Who

 “The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don't always soften the bad things, but vice versa, the bad things don't always spoil the good things and make them unimportant.”


Doctor Who will always have a special place in my heart and although it may not be an obvious choice to watch at Halloween, it's always something I watch so much more during the autumnal months and with episodes such as Blink which features the Weeping Angels and The Empty Child with the creepiest little boy in the gas mask, it can actually be pretty scary at times...
