It’s time for a terrifying Halloween Star Wars tale featuring Zombies, Giant Spiders, and Sith Lords with Spider Legs!!!
It’s Halloween and that means it’s time for a good scare. And while Star Wars may not be the first thing to come to mind for such a day there has been some creepy content unleashed by this franchise so, with no further delay, here are some Star Wars-centric choices to put a chill down one’s spine.
Star Wars zombies? Yeah, they exist, and they appear in The Clone Wars episodes “Legacy of Terror” and “Brain Invaders”. These two episodes will have definitely have you wincing.
What’s my favorite episode of The Clone Wars that features a scarier side to the franchise? “Brothers”. There’s just something so unnerving about seeing Maul with a robot spider body that every time I watch that episode I find myself cringing a bit.
Oh, but The Mandalorian just might have the scariest episode of all. If you have arachnophobia “The Passenger” will have you squealing and practically unable to watch what’s happening onscreen, for arachnids are very much the guest star of this particular terrifying ride. And that goes for everyone. I know I did quite a bit of squealing when I watched that episode for the first time.
And there you have it. Four fantastic Star Wars episodes that embrace that spooky Halloween theme.
May the Force be with you.
