Things just got a little creepier this Halloween, thanks to DStv Now. They’ve put together a special Horror Playlist of the freakiest, most frightening films out there – called Don’t Go In There – to amp up the terror with frights that will find you, no matter where you try to hide.

The Psycho Six

Some of the highlights on the epic playlist of fright-inducing horror flicks includes:

1) Tyler Perry’s Boo! A Madea Halloween, Tyler Perry’s horror spoof sees Madea spending a haunted Halloween fending off killers, paranormal poltergeists, ghosts, ghouls and zombies while keeping a watchful eye on a group of misbehaving teens.

2) Blair Witch, the 2016 sequel to the seminal low-budget horror movie. A young man and his friends venture into a forest to uncover the mystery surrounding his missing sister. Many believe her disappearance 17 years earlier is connected to the legend of the Blair Witch. As the night wears on, a visit from a menacing presence soon makes them realise that the legend is all too real -  and more sinister than they could have ever imagined.

3) The Conjuring 2 sees paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren come out of a self-imposed sabbatical to travel to London to meet an overwhelmed single mother of four who tells the couple that something evil is in her home.

4) Chernobyl Diaries follows a group of young tourists hoping for an adventure off the beaten path. They hire an extreme-tour guide who takes them to the town of Pripyat, Ukraine, once home to workers at the nearby Chernobyl nuclear power plant, but abandoned after the 1986 nuclear disaster. After briefly exploring the ghost town, the tourists find themselves stranded - and worse, they’re not alone.

5) The Woman in Black 2: Angel of Death is set in World War II London, where bombings force two schoolteachers to evacuate a group of children to Crythin Gifford. When the refugees take shelter at Eel Marsh House, they soon come to realise that they are not alone. The longer they remain there, the more the house's evil spirit threatens the children.

6) The Boy is the creepy tale of young Greta, who takes a job as a nanny for an 8-year-old boy in a remote English village, only to find that the child of her new employers is a life-size doll. They care for the doll as if it was human, which helps them cope with the death of their own son, 20 years earlier. When Greta violates a list of strict rules, a series of disturbing and inexplicable events bring her worst fears to life, leading her to believe that the doll is alive.

Start early, watch online.
