Emma's a horror content creator based in Australia. Her channel focuses on horror movies and series reviews and it's full of recommendations, discussions, and occasional interviews. She has a background in film and television and has been on YouTube ever since 2015, so the quality of her content is on point! Besides, Emma's an approved critic for Rotten tomatoes. 

PossessedbyHorror

This channel started as Sarah Hawkinson's side channel but her passion for horror content took over and it's now her main channel. PossessedbyHorror is a great place to find reviews of almost every horror movie from this century but there is also content related to old horror classics, as well as tier lists. Sarah is known for expressing her honest opinion and her love for the American remake of The ring (2002).

Movies are great but so are books! There are content creators on YouTube that are happy to share their experience with horror books.

Cameron Chaney – Library Macabre

If you are looking for horror books reviews, then Cameron's channel is just for you. His Library Macabre has been active on YouTube since 2011, so there's plenty of content to binge! No matter if you are into niche or mainstream horror, you will find what you are searching for. Cameron makes weekly content and on his channel, you will find reading vlogs, book reviews, and book hauls, to quote just a few - of course, all of this is horror-related!

Harpies in the Trees

Mers' channel is all about horror books - this includes not only hauls and recommendations but also interviews and creative projects inspired by horror books. In addition, the Harpies in the Trees videos have inspiring horror and gothic esthetics which makes the whole channel very atmospheric and perfect for the spooky season.

Creepypasta

Is the Halloween season complete without creepypasta? No, it's not. Here are some of the best YouTube channels that will give you the willies. 

CreepsMcPasta

CreepsMcPasta is maybe one of the best-known YouTube channels among horror enthusiasts. With over 2 million subscribers, this is a great place to get your dose of scary stories. The channel provides daily videos so you will surely have enough content for the whole Halloween season. In addition to that, there is also a live stream that plays 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Most videos are between 15 and 30 minutes, just what you needed for your lunch breaks.

The Dark Somnium

Although The Dark Somnium channel is not limited to horror stories, most of the content is creepypasta. Just like CreepsMcPasta, there is a 24 hours a day live radio to give you the chills. The radio plays stories from the reddit group "Nosleep" (which is also adapted into a podcast). The original theme music of the stories is produced by The Dark Somnium.

Ambiance

If you are working or reading a spooky book, you can just put some ambient sounds that will help you to keep the eerie atmosphere.

Calmed By Nature

While Calmed By Nature is not specifically dedicated to Halloween, the channel has a great spooky playlist and some of the videos are straight creepy. If you are looking for a way to enhance your experience this season, this channel will make sure to stimulate your senses!

Autumn Cozy

Autumn Cozy is another ambient sounds channel that will transport you to another place. You will be able to find videos created for other seasons as well, but the main focus is still on Halloween and autumn. If fall doesn't equal spookiness for you, then you will love this channel! It has plenty of cozy videos that are perfect for sunny autumn afternoons.

Witchy channels

This season isn't called the season of the witch for no reason! If you want to learn more about the traditions behind Halloween and get some original ideas on how to celebrate it, then you may want to consider having a look at the following channels.

Magical Crafting

As its name suggests, Magical Crafting is a channel dedicated to magical practices. This is a place where you will be able to find plenty of spells, guides, but also decoration, and other witch-inspired art videos and tutorials. There is enough content to fill your curiosity throughout this magical season!

Harmony Nice

Harmony Nice is a Wiccan based in the United Kingdom. Although she left YouTube in 2021, Harmony's channel is still a great place to learn more about the history behind Halloween (Samhain), other sabbats, and their celebration. The young content creator has already released a book about Wicca and her own tarot deck, so don't worry about the quality of the channel!

Please, don't forget to be respectful towards others' believes if they are different from yours.
