Dim the lights and ready yourself for ten terrifying tales in High Definition on your PS3.
What better film to watch this weekend than the original slasher movie from acclaimed director, John Carpenter that spawned an entire subgenre of horror films? An exercise in terror, Halloween takes us into the world of Michael Myers, a killer driven by an insatiable bloodlust who has been locked away for years inside a psychiatric hospital. Now, years later on Halloween night he has come home to continue his killing spree.
Dawn of the Dead
The original zombie masterpiece from director George A. Romero has never looked better in stunning High Definition, which makes it the perfect choice for Halloween viewing. The classic tale of four survivors that take refuge in an abandoned shopping mall surrounded by the walking dead comes complete with multiple versions of the film including the director's cut and numerous documentaries like the superb Dead Will Walk and Fan of the Dead.
An American Werewolf in London
When two American students touring the English countryside are attacked by a vicious wolf under a full moon, their lives are suddenly transformed forever. Featuring groundbreaking Academy Award-winning make-up by Rick Baker, this cult favourite perfectly blends the macabre with a touch of twisted humour. And best of all on this must-have Blu-ray Disc is the feature length documentary, Beware The Moon, which features hours of interviews and anecdotes.
Prepare for jawsome fun with Piranha 3D, the 2010 remake of the infamous 1978 Joe Dante directed creature feature. Set in the fictional town of Lake Victoria, Piranha 3D pits an unlikely group of strangers against scores of prehistoric man-eating fish that have been released into the sparkling waters after a sudden underwater tremor. Horrifying, hilarious and eye-popping in stereoscopic 3D, this zany film will have you clinging to the edge of your seat.
Tucker & Dale VS Evil
It's hillbilly horror with a twist in this festival favourite that's part Shaun of the Dead, part Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Tucker and Dale are best buddies on a weekend vacation in a crusty mountain house who are mistaken for murderers by a group of paranoid college kids. A gut-busting tale of misunderstanding, Tucker & Dale VS Evil is probably the most fun you'll have getting scared this Halloween.
The Evil Dead
In an apparently forsaken cottage, Ash and his friends discover a tape recorder. They turn it on to hear the voice of Professor Knowby, who has successfully translated The Book of the Dead. His words awaken the spirit of evil, possessing them one at a time and turning their weekend getaway into a nightmare as Ash begins his relentless battle against an all-powerful evil that takes many forms. We dare you to watch it alone.
A Nightmare on Elm Street Collection
Featuring not just one film, but all seven Nightmare on Elm Street movies including the hugely underrated Wes Craven's New Nightmare and the original 1984 hit that put both Craven and its star Robert Englund, on the map. This bulging box set comes complete with a fiery furnace full of behind the scenes extras including Freddy's hilarious 1988 MTV appearance and two full episodes of the short lived but fan favourite Freddy's Nightmare's TV series.
