Zombies
If you love zombies Netflix has you covered on Halloween. You can stream seasons 1-4 of The Walking Dead if you want your zombies with a side of human drama.

If you prefer comedy check out some episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000 where Joel and the robots take on B horror films about zombies. There are plenty of zombie movies available on Netflix to plan a zombie marathon.

Witches
Halloween wouldn’t be the same without witches. If you want to watch some witches on Halloween you can choose popular movies like The Craft or choose TV series like The Witches of East End. Don’t forget about American Horror Story Coven either. There are also many classic horror films featuring witches and worlocks that are available for streaming. If you want to choose more action oriented content Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters is a lot of fun.

Animated Classics
Don’t forget about animated classics like The Corpse Bride and The Nightmare Before Christmas. It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown is another Halloween classic that is not to be missed, especially if you have kids. Putting on animated musical Halloween specials is a fun thing to do to provide a great atmosphere when everyone is getting into their costumes. Don’t forget about the Simpsons Treehouse of Terror Halloween specials. Power Rangers Halloween specials, Curious George Halloween specials and other Halloween specials from kid favorites like Barney are all available as well.

Slasher
There can never be too much blood on Halloween night. If you are a fan of 80s slasher films like Chucky, Nightmare On Elm Street, Friday the 13th and of course the original Halloween you can find some great selections ready to stream on Netflix. Watch them on a table in bed so that you don’t have to go into a dark bedroom after watching them if you get scared easily. There are so many great slasher franchises from the 80s that you could run an entire 24 hour slasher movie marathon just from the choices available on Netflix. If you are a hard core horror fan you can even find some of the original slasher and torture films like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Last House on the Left.

Vampires
Another must have for Halloween is a great vampire movie. There are funny vampire movies, gross vampire movies, and chilling vampire movies on Netflix. Shadow of the Vampire is a great movie that looks at the making of the original vampire film Nosferatu. John Carpenter’s Vampires is a funny take on the vampire mythos. For 80s lovers The Hunger is a must see and features a very young David Bowie, Susan Sarandon and Catherine Denueve. There are also several Cirque du Freak vampire titles to watch.

This Halloween save the money you would spend on DVDs and spend it on your Halloween costume. Make Netflix your first stop for great Halloween movies and shows.
