Weekend watchlist: 10 most haunting horror and thriller flicks to catch on Lionsgate Play


The Halloween season is here and with the long weekend approaching, it’s indeed the best time to enjoy some horror and thriller guilty pleasures in peace and (creepy) quiet.


PLDT Home customers can easily watch many of these blockbusters on Lionsgate Play by simply activating their free Lionsgate Play vouchers online until June 1, 2023. With every activation, PLDT Home customers will not only enjoy a scare-fest — they’ll also get the chance to win special prizes including a 65” LG OLED TV as part of the monthly raffle promo.


So, get your Lionsgate Play app and popcorn ready. Here are 10 of the spookiest flicks to make the next few days of vacay a weekend-long — yikes! — nightmare!


Saw (movie series)

There are now nine Saw movies in the psychological thriller franchise featuring the serial killer Jigsaw. With the titular character testing his victims’ will to survive and skill at sawing off their limbs to find the key for their restraints, the Saw series takes you to witness the poor victims’ horrifying self-mutilation to save their loved ones. Lionsgate Play features Saw II, Saw IVSaw VI, Saw: The Final Chapter, and Jigsaw.


Scream 4

The Scream franchise that started in 1996 produced one of the most popular Halloween costumes in history — Ghostface. In this fourth installment, Sidney Prescott from the first film’s set of protagonists returns to Woodsboro where the Ghostface Killer once terrorized. She is keen to promote her self-help book and to meet some old friends — and perhaps including an old friend.


The Grudge 2 and The Grudge 3

The sequels to the supernatural horror The Grudge follow the curse that’s born when someone dies in extreme rage or sorrow. The curse is an entity created where the death occurs and is passed from one victim to another. In The Grudge 2, the protagonists become haunted by Kayako (who was killed in a horrific manner in the first movie) all while trying to put an end to the curse. The Grudge 3 is set after the events of the second installment, with Kayako’s ghost attacking the protagonist in an asylum. The curse from the original film continues with new characters becoming possessed.


The Mist

Based on the novella by Stephen King, The Mist is a science-fiction horror film released in 2007. It revolves around a group of people from a small town in Maine who gets trapped in a supermarket following a power outage. An unnatural mist descends on the town and conceals monsters as tension rise among the survivors. Not only is this film chockful of scares — it also shows how the fear of the unknown and desperation can wreak havoc on one’s emotions.


Open Water 2: Adrift

A treat for fans of psychological thrillers, the story revolves around a group of friends who jump off a yacht to swim, but with no one having lowered the ladder for them to get back. Two people and a baby are on the boat until only the baby is left aboard. Hysteria, fighting, and deaths occur while they tread water and try to figure out how to survive. Lionsgate also features Open Water, the original film based on the true story of divers finding themselves marooned in shark-infested waters.


The Perfect Student

The crime thriller begins when a student is brutally murdered on campus and her body is thrown into the ocean. The police suspect her roommate Jordan, but well-respected criminology professor Nicole Johnson believes someone is trying to frame her student. She begins her own investigation to prove Jordan’s innocence. After she gets Jordan released, the professor finds herself in danger with doubts beginning to surface around the crime.


The Messengers

Produced by Sami Raimi mostly known for his horror and superhero genre work, this film features a family that moves into a house in North Dakota where a family murder had occurred. Supernatural things manifest in the new homeowners’ midst – with ghosts of the mother and her children appearing and black crows attacking. The new family soon discovers the horrifying secret of the farmhand that will put their entire family in danger. Lionsgate Play also features the prequel Messengers 2: The Scarecrow.


Wrong Turn   

A man crashes his car on his way to a job interview and meets some others who are on a hiking trip. The group splits up with some venturing off into the woods — only to meet a group of mountain dwellers who now find them a threat. Expect suspense and gory chills in the backwoods as a fight for survival ensues.


Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2

The sequel to one of the scariest movies ever made features four young fans researching mythology and mass hysteria. They go on tour in the woods where the first movie was filmed, and various strange things happen as they descend into a night of murder, madness, and perception-bending supernatural horror. Scared out of their wits and questioned by the police later, they have their accounts contradicted by film footage that shows them committing rather horrific acts. Lionsgate Play also features the original film The Blair Witch Project.
