Two years later and Sony finally got the timing right for PlayStation 4's choose-your-own-horror adventure Until Dawn. The Hayden-Panettiere-starring interactive movie is perfect for Halloween frights, and if you're a PlayStation Now subscriber, you can play it, well, now. It isn't the only fright fest being added to the service, either. Frictional Games' sub-aquatic tale of terror, SOMA, is on offer as well as the macabre mystery The Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Don't feel like getting scared? There's always David Cage's Beyond: Two Souls and, umm, Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders.

Until Dawn, like many of the indie-horror movies it takes for inspiration, isn't perfect. The cinematic camera angles can make navigating some scenes tricky and there's some backtracking in the last act. But if you're hosting a pumpkin carving party at your place, once everyone cleans the seeds and guts from their fingers it's your best bet for some festive controller-passing fun. The PS Blog post is for Europe, but these things tend to make their way to the US service as well, it just takes a few days.
