10 Horror Films You Can Watch On Netflix This Halloween

Halloween is just around the corner—31 October— and though it is not a public holiday, it doesn’t stop us from celebrating this spooky affair.

Since Halloween lands on a weekday this year, most parties will happen over the weekend and your social media will be bombarded with people dressed up in scary outfits and sometimes, sexy.

But if playing dress-up isn’t your cup of tea, then we have something planned for you.

You still can revel in the spirit of Halloween without leaving your home.

Just stock on candies and popcorn, and spend your weekend binge-watching horror films!

Here is a list of must-watch horror movies on Netflix this Halloween.

Maybe you can call your girlfriend/boyfriend—Netflix and chill (or scream)?

1) Scream 1, 2 & 3

The Scream franchise is a classic!

I mean who doesn’t like a creepy phone stalker who happens to be a deranged killer—and hello, the killer’s mask has become a horror icon.

Scare factor: 3.5/5

2) Little Evil

You know how kids can be annoying, they are like little devils walking on the face of the earth.

In this movie, they ditch the metaphor. The kid is literally the devil’s spawn and the stepfather has a hard time convincing his mum.

The kid talking in a demon voice has to be my favourite part.

I must admit, this movie is more funny than scary. But if you’re looking for something light-hearted with a sprinkle of suspense, then this would a good choice.

Scare factor: 2/5

3) Friday the 13th: Part 7: The New Blood

Jason Voorhees—the main character from the Friday the 13th film series—is a pop cultural phenomenon.

For the uninitiated, Jason Voorhees drowned when he was a kid at Camp Crystal Lake and after many moons, he is back to seek vengeance!

There are a total of 11 films under this franchise, not including the bad remake in 2009—and luckily for us, Netflix has at least one of the films to quench our thirst for the hockey-masked killer.

Scare factor: 4.5/5

4) The invitation

The movie isn’t scary-scary; it is a thriller that will keep you on the edge of your seats.

The protagonist and his girlfriend attend a dinner party hosted by his ex-wife (shouldn’t this be a telltale sign that she is a psycho) and shit hits the fans when they find out that it was an invitation to a cult group!

Moral of the story: Don’t go to your ex’s house.

Scare factor: 3/5

5) The Conjuring

The movie that was responsible for the Annabelle films—yes that creepy doll that was supposedly possessed by a demon.

Though the doll only had a brief cameo in the first film, the film’s antagonist is just as scary, or even scarier than the doll—a malevolent spirit that wreaks havoc and destruction in a family’s home.

The movie has everything a good horror film should possess—suspenseful music, jump-scares, exorcism and most importantly, it is based on a true story.

Scare factor: 4.5/5

6) Satanic

Can the movie title get any more obvious?

With that said, this movie is about four friends making their way to Coachella—no flower crowns were harmed during the movie—but decided to make a pit stop in Los Angeles.

That is when the plot thickens—they meet a woman and she happens to be in some satanic cult.

The production value is definitely low which makes it even more creepy, and there is a lot of bloody scenes.

Scare factor: 2.5/5

7) The Shining

This movie is definitely one of the top-tier horror movies of all time.
Based on the novel by Stephen King—the one who created the menacing killer clown, IT—you know you’re not going to be subjected to tacky scare tactics.

I won’t go into detail, but it is about a mother and son running away from the father who happens to be possessed.

Oh, did I mention that they are trapped in a near-empty hotel in the dead of winter?

Scare factor: 4.5/5

8) Scary Movie 1, 2 & 3

If you are a scaredy cat, then your best bet is the Scary Movie franchise.

The movie parodies iconic horror films like Scream, Hannibal, and The Ring.

Instead of screaming, you will be laughing through the tears.

Scare factor: 1/5

9) Gerald’s Game

Stephen King is going through a renaissance of sorts as another novel of his comes to life.

Gerald’s Game is a psychological thriller that will have you squirming. It is about a husband who died during an innocent sex game with his wife—plot twist: she is handcuffed to the bed.

Imagine not being able to do anything while you just look at your husband’s corpse.

Scare factor: 4.5/5

10) The exorcism of Anna Ecklund

If you’re a fan of The Exorcism of Emily Rose, then this movie will satiate you.

Based on a true story, it is about a possessed homemaker who basically goes apeshit when her husband brings her to the church for an exorcism.

It has all the expected scenes you would expect from an exorcism movie.

Scare factor: 3.5/5
