If you don't devote the days leading up to Halloween to getting spooked, you're doing October wrong. Here at TV Guide, we like to turn these 31 days into a month-long horror binge of classic scary movies and TV. The less bloodthirsty of us prefer to stick to Freeform's family-friendly "31 Days of Halloween" programming. But the serious horror heads among us like to spend hours combing through Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime's streaming horror options to find the most hair-raising, spine-tingling, cover-your-eyes spooktacular content.
We've narrowed it down to the best of the best of streaming horror TV and movies on the three major streaming platforms, and here it is for your streaming pleasure (we have a particular soft spot for Stephen King adaptations). This video is a handy compendium of what to stream and where to stream it. So pop some popcorn, turn off the lights and make sure there's nothing hiding in your house. What's that behind you? Look out! Aaah!
The greatest horror movie of all time (and one of the greatest movies of all time, period) is back on Netflix just in time for the spooky season. Let Stanley Kubrick and Jack Nicholson unsettle you all over again.
This Netflix series is loosely adapted from Shirley Jackson's classic haunted house novel by horror auteur Mike Flanagan, and it's one of the most adept blends of character drama and pure fright we've ever seen.
The zombie genre as we know it wouldn't exist without George Romero's 1968 classic. It's not as gory as The Walking Dead or as exciting as 28 Days Later, but its black-and-white photography and menacing atmosphere still frighten 50 years later.
