If you’re forgoing the Halloween spectacle this year (one can only handle seeing so many slutty pizza costumes at a party) and opting to curl up at home with a good horror film, we’re here to help. With so many streaming options available, choosing a movie can often take more time than watching the movie itself. (Is there a clinical term for this yet?) We’ve curated 20 of the best fright films online right now, pulling from Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and YouTube. Most of these movies are free, others are cheap, and all of them are guaranteed to make your Halloween memorable.
A slow-burning throwback to 1980’s horror films with a Satanic panic twist from one of horror cinema’s newest and most exciting directors working today, Ti West. Genre favorites Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov terrify as a mysterious couple who hire an unsuspecting babysitter (Jocelin Donahue).
