A web series to watch for Halloween is definitely After Nightfall; a noir styled series that turns around one question: “Who Killed Troy McLeavey?”. Online you can already watch two seasons of this Australian horror digital series, that starts with the murder of an 18-year-old boy from a small town, where everyone knows each other.

So, watch After Nightfall this Halloween!

#3 CHATTERBOX – ESCAPE THE ASYLUM: AN INTERACTIVE WEB SERIES FOR HALLOWEEN
Directed by Mercedes Bryce Morgan. Written by Ilan Benjamin and Michelle Hantman
In this article dedicated to web series for Halloween, could not miss an interactive project. If you liked Black Mirror: Bandersnatch and all the interactive web series we told you about in these years, meet Chapter 1 of CHATTERBOX: Escape the Asylum. This series puts you in the mind of Jed, a sectioned madman. The two voices in Jed’s head will guide you, allow you to make choices, directing Jed toward disaster or rapture. There are, of course, other patients and, between them, there’s a famous escapist, a religious scholar and an ex-nurse. They all battle mental illnesses, banding together to help Jed escape. But… Can you ever outrun madness? Find it out watching the series!
#4 BONDI SLAYER: AWAY FROM SUNNYDALE, MEET A WEB SERIAL VAMPIRES SLAYER
Created and performed by Victoria Beck. Directed by Jessica Grace Smith
On IMDB the storyline of this web series says “Bondi is a world away from Sunnydale, but it’s got its very own vampire slayer, Riley Fox” and we think you need no more for watching Bondi Slayer. Riley Fox (performed by Victoria Beck, who’s also the creator of the web series) is a 28-year-old atypical Bondi resident, who tries to navigate men, booze and the un-dead. Because, of course, she’s a vampire slayer. She’s a tough, broken, sassy heroine who has been thrust into this vampire slaying world after her sister passed on the mantle. She is a female action hero, struggling to balance her slaying duties with her dysfunctional life in Bondi. She wants to fit in, but she often pushes people away because she believes that, if someone gets too close, they’ll die. And there’s something more that doesn’t help to have a normal life: she loves vodka too much, and there’s a bounty on her head. But stop with the spoilers and let’s watch this web series for Halloween!
#5 SUMMER’S MONSTER: A SCI-FI WEB SERIES FOR HALLOWEEN
Directed By Vanessa Wenzel
And last but not least a sci-fi web series that definitely gives some chills. Summer’s Monster is the story of Summer, Hanna, and Rodger who are trying to uncover the mystery behind Summer’s missing Grandfather. While searching, the group is confronted by an inexplicable find: a monster in the woods. Realizing that it’s not harmful, they discover the monster has been trying to communicate with Summer. As the group grows closer to finding Summer’s Grandfather, the monster reveals its true intentions and the group must come together to save the humankind. Watch it!
