The Halloween List of Books Films and Series

Halloween Night!

Tomorrow it is the 31st of October, it’s Halloween night! If you have a day off or an evening off, here is a seven item list of inspiration of Halloween related / horror related films, series and books. I am not that fond of horror so the lists are quite mild. If I have not seen a film, series or read a book yet, it is mentioned in the lists in Italic.

The Book List

If you do not want to watch a Halloween related film on tv or watch a series on Netflix; you can also grab a book and test if you will read it – maybe nearly – at once. Or if you have to put it away because it is too scary! Halloween is even a separate genre on Goodreads.

  • ‘Hex’ written by Thomas Olde Heuvelt
  • ‘Diary of a Wimpy Kid | Double Down (#11)’ written by Jeff Kinney
  • ‘Asylum’ written by Madeleine Roux
