- The Walking Dead

After they move in with their kids, they find out the house’s sordid history — the former tenant murdered his family after supposedly being possessed by the devil (iFlix).

The Perrons and their five daughters have recently moved into a secluded farmhouse, where a dark supernatural presence has made itself known (iFlix).
