With stores everywhere morphing into strange collections of overpriced costumes and Christmas trees, one thing is clear: The Halloween season is upon us.

If you’re looking for an alternative to haunted hayrides and trick-or-treating, you needn’t look any further than your Netflix streaming account. We waded through the service’s massive selection of horror movies and compiled a list that will surely get any cinema buff into the spirit of the season.

Watch them soon, however; like stranded motorists in the woods, movies offered by Netflix have a tendency to vanish suddenly, never to return.

“The Night of the Living Dead”

Way, way before the modern zombie craze, acclaimed horror director George A. Romero brought the dead back to life in a truly chilling manner. While his 1968 classic has spawned sequels, remakes, and imitations galore (not to mention an actual federal preparedness plan), nothing has come close to matching it. Nostalgic horror fans and newcomers alike will be able to share in the sheer terror of the living dead as they wreak havoc in a rural Pennsylvania town.


Japan and South Korea have long been the home of some of our favorite foreign horror movies. However, the same nation that gave us our beloved “Doctor Who” and “Sherlock” is also responsible for one of the most timeless horror franchises out there. Clive Barker’s original “Hellraiser” introduces us to the dangerous “Lament Configuration” puzzle box and the terrifying effects it has on its curious — yet selfish — victims. In addition to the original film, Netflix also has all eight sequels available to stream.
