Mumbai, October 2020.

The world has been under a lockdown for better part of the year due to the covid 19 pandemic and everyone is looking forward to getting out of their shells to do something fun. Halloween is just the right occasion! Since it’s still not very safe to go out and attend Halloween parties, global content leader and premium OTT player Lionsgate Play, has launched a digital watch party #SpookParty for its viewers so that they can celebrate Halloween from the comfort of their homes.

This spooky season is the perfect time to grab some popcorn, clump with friends and family and get ready to scream your head off at some of the scariest movies that Lionsgate Play has for you. With all the choices available, it’s difficult to choose the movies worth watching but Lionsgate Play has got you covered with the best Halloween movies to watch that everyone in your circle will love.

Here are the best Halloween movies by Lionsgate Play:

1.       The Midnight Meat Train- A photographer's obsessive pursuit of dark subject matter leads him into the path of a serial killer who stalks late night commuters, ultimately butchering them in the most gruesome ways
