Peacock is going all out on Halloween Horror in October. The spooky lineup includes classic Universal Monsters films, new releases Five Nights At Freddy’s House, and various other titles.

We finally decided to choose one Halloween film, because how could we not? The other two include a deeply disturbing thriller and a mystery that borders on science fiction. Here are the three best horror films on Peacock to watch this Halloween.

Game of Thrones‘ Rose Leslie co-headlines Honeymoon as Bea, Paul’s (Harry Treadaway) new wife. The newlyweds enjoy their honeymoon together in a remote cabin in the Canadian woods until Bea mysteriously disappears. Paul finds Bea naked in the field, and he claims that she must have been sleepwalking.

However, it’s clear there’s more to Bea’s story than she tells her husband. After Paul takes Bea back to the cabin, he is troubled by gaps in Bea’s memories and changes in her personality. Is the returned Bea really Paul’s wife? Or is there a stranger in his place?

In 1978, a serial killer known as The Grabber (Ethan Hawke) kidnapped and murdered children with impunity. Finney (Mason Thames) is The Grabber’s latest victim, but he has something that none of the previous victims have: A disconnected black telephone that allows Finney to talk to the ghosts of The Grabber’s previous victims.

Meanwhile, Finney’s sister Gwen (Madeleine McGraw) experiences psychic visions that may point to her brother. But even with supernatural help, Finney is in grave danger and his time is running out.

Halloween (2018)

James Jude Courtney as Michael Myers in Halloween.

Halloween may have the same name as the original film, but it’s actually a sequel to the 1978 film that completely ignores all the other sequels that preceded it. In this new continuity, Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney) has been imprisoned for 40 years, and Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) has never gotten over the ordeal at his hands. Laurie’s unwavering determination to prepare for Michael’s return alienates her daughter, Karen Nelson (Judy Greer), although Karen’s daughter, Allyson Nelson (Andi Matichak), tries to maintain a relationship with her grandmother.

Laurie’s paranoia is proven correct when Michael escapes from the mental institution and commits a new murder. Now, the fight against Michael will be waged by three generations of Strode women uniting to stop him. And Michael never gave up without drawing first blood.
