10 Best Halloween Movies on Netflix
Remember the days of tuning into cable TV Halloween marathons? There was something magical about the buildup to planning your night around Hocus Pocus airing. Mind you, our current situation isn’t so bad either. Having films on demand allows you to make sure you’re in the right headspace to prepare to watch The Conjuring.
That’s why it’s important to have streaming sites like Netflix at the ready with extensive libraries of horror movies so you can have a build-your-own Halloween movie marathon any night of October. (Or, every night, if you’re into that kind of thing.) You won’t need to seance any spirit guides to build your watch list. We’ve already summoned the best of Netflix’s spooky and supernatural selections (along with some scaredy-cat-friendly gems) for a perfect shriek-fest.
Nothing is scarier than a pubescent boy coming of age and realizing he’s got a crush on his babysitter. Unless, said babysitter is in a demonic cult that sacrifices random dudes in your parents kitchen.
The Evil Dead
You have to be a little twisted yourself (in a good way, of course!) to become a fan of the odd, but storied horror-comedy genre. Regardless, if you’re looking to be alternatingly terrified and amused for two hours, there’s one definitive film you have to start with. It’s Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead, which introduced us to Bruce Campbell’s Ash, who has to figure out how to un-possess his closest friends during a cabin getaway.
From the mind of Steven Spielberg, Poltergeist follows an unsuspecting family who begin communicating with spirits through their television set. Their enigmatic encounters turn sinister, though, when their young daughter goes missing.
Something like A Quiet Place with a twist, Bird Box stars Sandra Bullock as a mother who must rescue herself and her children from an ominous force that kills all victims who see it. Their path to safety hangs by one fragile protection against peril: blindfolds.
It Comes At Night
Two families form an alliance for post-apocalyptic survival in this Trey Edward Shults-directed psychological thriller. As they attempt to bond against their shared outside dangers, an internal threat rears its head.
Silence of the Lambs
Fava beans, anyone? This Best Picture winner (yes! horror!) stars Jodie Foster and Anthony Hopkins in a tale where an FBI agent is tracking a serial killer but utilizes the expertise of a cannibalistic psychiatrist turned murderer. It’s horrifying and yet remains one of the most iconic thriller horror films of all time.
Tim Burton takes on Washington Irving’s timeless tale in this adaptation of “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,” starring Johnny Depp.
There’s something about stories that feature dolls coming to life—the Halloween industry and scary-movie lovers are all about them. People who have an irrational fear of dolls coming to life (*raises hand*) probably are not. But if you can stomach it, this 2018 film is about a toy manufacturer and his wife, who are terrorized by their niece who tries to summon her late mother’s spirit. Soon, a cursed doll named Sabrina begins to haunt the family. Not to be confused with Sabrina the Teenage Witch (the funny or the scary one).
Dinner party gone sinister is just one of those tropes that doesn’t get old. When a man goes to a dinner party at the home he once shared with his ex-wife, he realizes there might be more going on than a three-course meal and a few toasts to health and happiness. The divorced couple are still grappling with the death of their young son, which was the reason for their split. That’s not a great start to a nice evening of entertainment.
