If you hadn’t already figured it out, ya girl is obsessed with Halloween and spooky season. We. Love. Creepy. Things. And there’s nothing better than watching creepy Halloween movies while snuggling up on your couch with your new Jack-O-Lantern fuzzy blanket.
But we don’t all have cable or some live tv streaming service and definitely don’t have money to rent Hocus Pocus for the fifth time. Soooo I put together a pretty comprehensive list of all the best Halloween movies (and tv shows) that you can stream now!
I’ve divvied them up into three categories, depending on which streaming platform they’re on. So if you (or your super cool aunt) have Netflix, Hulu, or HBO Max, you just found your next Halloween movie to stream.
Halloween Movies on Netflix
Fear Street Trilogy
These movies were released on Netflix back in July of this year and were all the rage. My best friend and I watched all three together and both agreed they got better and better with each movie. They just have that amazing vintage feel and perfect humor like all the best slashers.
Stream Fear Street on Netflix now.
The Little Vampire (2017)
A cartoon rendition of the original 2000 film, this cutie is perfect for kids and adults. The plotline is slightly different from the original, but the overall plot and villain are the same. I can’t wait to watch this one!
Stream The Little Vampire on Netflix now.
If you don’t consider this to be one of the classic Halloween movies, you are just wrong. Arguments are not accepted at this time. I mean c’mon? A house that comes to life? And it’s set in October? Perfection.
Stream Monster House on Netflix now.
One of Tim Burton’s less popular films, but one of three you can stream free. Another cartoon that’s perfect for the family, this film follows a misunderstood Norman who helps his whole town battle an evil curse that involves ghosts and zombies.
Stream Paranorman on Netflix now.
Scream (tv show)
I watched the first two seasons of this years ago and loved it. It’s perfect for any lover of the original Scream movies or anything slasher. It’s got all the tropes of the Scream movies, but in a high school setting with new characters.
Stream Scream the tv show on Netflix now.

The Haunting of Hill House
I absolutely fell in love with this tv show when it came out. It was inspired by the gothic classic published in 1959 by Shirley Jackson (the writer of Frankenstein). I was terrified and constantly checking dark corners in my bedroom while watching this. So maybe only watch it during the day?
