Happy Halloween, ghoulish readership! As the days draw shorter, the air becomes crisper and the lattes taste spicier, the time for horror and gore is now upon us. No doubt many of us will be spending All Hallows’ Eve playing a bunch of terrifying games, hoping to crap that not too many Trick or Treaters ring the doorbell so we can scoff all the miniature Snickers ourselves. But maybe your game shelves are a little empty? Or you are feeling a little uninspired by recent horror fare?

Never fear – if you’ve been a long-time PS Plus subscriber or even dipped your toe in the pool now and then, there may be a few fun terrors available to you for no extra cash. As far back as 2019, I could find classic horror games that people got (technically) for free through the subscription service, and will still have accessible on their account if they currently have PS Plus. So, what are the highlights?

[Note: the availability of these games may vary depending on your region; the list is accurate for the US.]
