As we are approaching Halloween, we can finally start watching season movies, and personally, I am excited. I have always loved this time of year, and there are so many great movies that are available on so many platforms right now! Here are my top Halloween films that you can stream on a tv or computer near you!
- Oculus: This is a great movie that combines true crime with horror and an incredible storyline. It has a decently high creep factor to it, but it won’t keep you up at night.
- An American Haunting: Being from Tennessee, this is a movie I watch quite often. It is a retelling of the story of The Bell Witch from Adams, Tennesee. I am also a sucker for a period movie.
- Hellraiser: No joke, this is one of my favorite horror film franchise of all time. I watched it when I was very young, and it terrified me. If you have never seen it, then this is a must!
- Double, Double, Toil, and Trouble: If you are anything like me, then you grew up on Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen films. It’s one of my favorite Halloween films to stream this time of year, and it is great for the whole family!
- Cabin in the Woods: If you are a fan of Chris Hemsworth and the biggest horror franchises throughout time, this is a great movie! It adds a little bit of comedy while still being pretty scary.
- Sleepy Hollow: Literally, one of my favorite movies of all time! I have always loved the story of Sleepy Hollow, and this is the best version of this money besides the Disney animated classic.
- The Addams Family: To be honest, I watch this movie multiple times per year. There are so many funny lines, I love the characters, and Morticia is a true idol among women.
- House of 1000 Corpses: I’m a huge Rob Zombie fan in general, and I am also a huge fan of all of his films. In terms of Halloween films to stream this year, this definitely has a viewer beware. It has a lot of mature content, but it is a unique and interesting film.
- Cape Fear: First off, there are some of the best actors of all time in this movie. Jessica Lange? Hello! Second off, the plot of this movie is pretty much the fear of anyone who has ever taken part in convicting someone of a crime. Definitely a must-watch!
- House at the End of the Street: If you have ever moved into a new neighborhood, this is going to be pretty relevant to you! It has our girl Jeniffer Lawrence, a creepy neighbor, and a wild story.
- Hocus Pocus: Yes, I know this is basic, but it has been the ultimate Halloween movie since it came out. I learned what a virgin was because of this movie (sorry for asking mom), and it was something that I looked forward to each and every Halloween season.
- Haunted Mansion: Okay, let me preface this with, I know that this is not the best movie of all time. Did it do much for my personal favorite Disney ride? No. Is it still a great movie and is super cute and kinda creepy at the end? Yes!
- The Nightmare Before Christmas: This is another classic, honestly. It can really fall into both Halloween films to stream as well as at Christmas time. In case you’re wondering, I have always been partial to Zero and always said I would name an animal Zero, but I haven’t done it yet, oops.
- Halloweentown: OMG, ICONIC! If I had to choose between this and Hocus Pocus, I would 100% always choose Halloweentown. I love Debbie Reynolds and I am always going to love Disney Channel Original Movies.
- Don’t Look Under The Bed: Speaking of Disney Channel Original Movies, did this one scare anyone else when they were little? It is great for the family, but it also might give you a little nightmare too.
Amazon Prime Video
- The Houses October Built: Ever since I found this movie a few years ago, it has been one of my top Halloween movies to stream each year. I love how it is filmed, the storyline is great, and it honestly is kind of scary at times!
- Silent Hill: I mean, this is another iconic movie. Being a big video game fan, I was thrilled when they brought this horror game to life and actually did a great job. This is not for children as it has some frightening imagery, but it has a great storyline!
- Secret Window: Although this is technically now a Halloween or horror movie, it is an intense thriller that has a ton of creepy vibes. It is also potentially one of Johnny Depp’s most underrated movies, in my opinion.
- Hereditary: If you are a fan of horror movies, then you have probably seen Hereditary. It is a little deeper than your typical horror movie tends to go and is definitely worth watching!
- The Village: Although this movie gets harsh criticism from time-to-time, I think it is beautifully shot. It also has one of the most interesting stories and twists that we have come to expect from M Night Shyamalan.
