If you're like me, you're probably scouring Netflix for all things horror because its fall next week and fall means Halloween. Netflix released potentially their scariest horror series yet called Marianne. It's so scary they even warned viewers not to watch the french series alone. They were 100% right, it's definitely a show that'll leave you sleeping with the light on for a few nights. They even fittingly released the series on Friday the 13th, that in itself speaks for its scariness. If you loved Marianne on Netflix Canada check out these shows that'll also give you a fright.
If you haven't watched Marianne, it's an international show from France that follows a successful writer who is disturbed to find out that the novel series she wrote is actually being carried out in real life. She's then drawn back to her home town with her assistant where things take a turn for the worst. It's, to me, one of the best things you can watch to get in the spooky season mood. Just remember... don't watch it alone.

Typewriter is also an international horror series on Netflix. Although it is categorized as horror, it's much campier. The show takes the childhood innocence similar to Stranger Things and mixes it with eerie hauntings.
It follows three children in Mumbai who set out to uncover the mystery behind an abandoned house that has been inhabited again after thirty years. Things get real creepy.
Chilling Adventures of Sabrina
Rating: 82% on Rotten Tomatoes
The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, while not exactly horror, is definitely still scary. Some would even say "chilling." Their depiction of the devil and the aftermaths of dark magic will give you a spook.
The Chilling Adventure of Sabrina follows teenage Sabrina who is approaching her dark baptism and must choose between staying human or becoming full witch.

Black Mirror is a show that doesn't follow one plot. Every episode has different characters and a different storyline. It shows us the possible after-effects of advancing technology. Some episodes focus more on the sci-fi genre but a lot of episodes are downright horror, gore and all.
The fifth season of the English show is now streaming on Netflix Canada!
Rating: 93% on Rotten Tomatoes
Although Bates Motel wrapped up it's final season last year, it's worth the watch. It's a prequel to the well-known horror movie Psycho. It follows Norman Bates opening up a hotel with his mother, Norma Bates, following the death of his father.
Rating: 6.7/10 on IMDb
Slasher is exactly what it sounds like, a masked murderer slashing people. Netflix's synopsis for the show reads, "Rampaging serial killers leave carnage in their wake as their next victims fight to stay alive in this horror anthology series." If you're someone who loves the Friday the 13th movies this show is definitely for you.
Slasher currently has 3 seasons streaming on Netflix Canada!
