Right now, my husband and I are in the middle of a very intense Halloween streaming binge.
We’re not huge TV people but come Fall, we really get into our favorite Halloween movies.
Here are a few of the ones we’ve watched so far:
- What Lies Beneath
- Scooby Doo
- Hocus Pocus
- Practical Magic
- The Addams Family
How we’re streaming Halloween Movies this year
We’re not really picky in terms of which service we use and we actually have annual memberships to all three:
Halloween Movies on Netflix Now
Netflix beats out Hulu in terms of good Halloween movies. They seem to have more of the classics whereas Hulu may have more of the scary movies this year.
Best Halloween Movies on Netflix this year
- Scream series
- Little Monsters
- Goosebumps and Goosebumps 2
- Scary Movie
- The Sixth Sense
- Monster Family
Scariest Movies on Netflix
- Cult of Chucky
- The Conjuring
- Cabin Fever
- Don’t Knock Twice
You can’t go wrong with Goosebumps and any of the Scream Movies are always so bad they’re good.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a classic too. If you’re into horror movies you need to see it.
Halloween Movies on Netflix for Kids
I grew up with Little Monsters and Casper the Friendly Ghost. Always fun to pass that down to the next generation.
Halloween Movies on Hulu Now
Hulu has a special Huluween collection that is available starting in September. Movies and TV are organized into categories called “Halloween Essentials,” “Hauntings & Supernatural,” “Terrifying TV,” and more.
These are the Halloween Movies on Hulu that I recommend watching.
Best Halloween movies on Hulu
- Monster Squad
- The Exorcist
- The Amityville Horror
- The 13th Friday
- Quiet Ones
- The Remains
- The Canal
Scary Movies on Hulu
- Rosemary’s Baby
- Don’t Go
- Child’s Play
- The Evil Dead
Halloween TV on Hulu
- Halloween Baking Championships
- Sabrina the Teenage Witch
- Ghost Adventures
Out of all the movies above, I would recommend Blair Witch. It’s a classic although not great.
Above are the movies truly categorized Halloween and includes some Movies for kids as well.
I have seen Halloween H2O and it is another classic that I recommend.
Halloween Movies on Amazon Prime Now
Amazon has over 700 Halloween & horror movies with a good selection for both adults and kids.
Jeepers Creepers is a classic and should be on everyone’s list.
Don’t have Amazon Prime? Or Have Amazon Prime but don’t know about Amazon Prime Video?
Lately we’re HOOKED on Amazon Prime Video
Do you remember going to Blockbuster with your parents and getting to pick out a movie for $3.99?
The concept of renting a movie became a bit obsolete for awhile with Netflix and the annual subscription model.
Well it’s back with Amazon Prime Video – which you get for FREE with a Prime membership.
We’ve been using Netflix forever and have been really happy with Hulu, which is something we’ve added in the last year (mostly because I want to watch the Bachelor/Bachelorette – I’ll admit it!)
This year though, I realized that Amazon Prime had a video component too.
I have been a Prime customer forever now (it’s pretty much mandatory when you live on the opposite side of the country from friends and family and ship gifts home for the holidays).
Well, this year I discovered Amazon Prime Video and we pretty much use that exclusively (with our Fire TV Stick with Alexa Voice Remote).
Amazon’s Fire TV will tell you when another service has that movie for free
What I love about it, is that you can search for a movie and it will tell you *where* you can find the movie (in your already existing streaming subscriptions) FOR FREE.
Meaning, if you look up a movie and click “more ways to watch” it tells you if Netflix has that movie (so you don’t have to pay for it if Amazon Prime doesn’t have it for free).
I LOVE that because I hate having to bounce in and out of my Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime accounts trying to find a specific movie that I want to watch.
Admittedly, we’ve been renting a few of our favorite Halloween movies for a few dollars if none of our subscriptions have them for free, but I love that feature to save money.
If you just want to try prime for your own Halloween movie marathon:
