What is Halloween without some horror thrillers to binge on? I can suggest something even better – horror anthologies. According to the default definition, “the anthology is the screened version of round-the-campfire ghost stories: episodic, enticing and new at every turn”. It is time to revisit some of the greatest horror anthologies ever made in history.
