I don’t know who is more excited about Halloween being less than a month away, me or the kids. This is one of our favorite times of the year. I mean, who doesn’t love being able to dress up and become someone else?! We pretty much celebrate throughout the whole month with baking scary treats, decorating and planning those costumes! To get you in the mood for Halloween, you need to stream my top 10 picks for Halloween movies streaming on Netflix this month:
Alvin and the Chipmunks Meet the Wolfman: My kid and I can watch this movie over and over again! Alvin is struggling with nightmares of werewolves. Alvin believes that the new next-door neighbor Mr. Talbot is a werewolf. Of course, no one believes him. Meanwhile, the boys are working on the school production of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde.
The Addams Family: The beloved TV show from the 60’s is made into a full length movie. Con artists plan to rob the the eccentric family blind, using an accomplice who claims to be their long lost Uncle Fester.
The Nightmare Before Christmas: My daughter’s are obsessed with this one! Jack Skellington, king of Halloween Town, discovers Christmas Town, but doesn’t quite understand the concept.
Scream: I could watch this movie over and over too. Attempting to cope with her mother’s murder, Sydney and her horror movie-obsessed friends are stalked by a murderer who seems to have a hard time letting the past go.
The Omen: The original, which came out in 1976, is pretty darn scary. The updated version, which came out in 2006, starring Liev Schreiber and Julia Stiles comes pretty close. Mysterious deaths surround an American ambassador. Could the child that he is raising actually be the Antichrist? The devil’s own son?
Children of the Corn: Still haven’t seen the whole movie, as I cover my eyes through much of it! A young couple is trapped in a remote town where a dangerous religious cult of children believe everyone over the age of 18 must be killed.
Rosemary’s Baby: This movie scared the crap out of me when I was younger! A young couple move into a new apartment, only to be surrounded by peculiar neighbors and occurrences. When the wife becomes mysteriously pregnant, paranoia over the safety of her unborn child begins controlling her life.
Oculus: I first watched this because I love Doctor Who and Karen Gilliam, who plays Amy Pond, stars in this horror flick. This movie scared me half to death! A woman tries to exonerate her brother, who was convicted of murder, by proving that the crime was committed by a supernatural phenomenon. The central focus of the drama is a haunted mirror. It sounds hokey, but trust me, it is not bad as far as horror movies go.
Bram Stoker’s Dracula: I am a huge fan of Gary Oldman, and this is one of his best performances (in my humble opinion.) And this is directed by Frances Ford Coppola, so you know it has to be good! The vampire comes to England to seduce a visitor’s fiancée (Winona Ryder) and inflict havoc in the foreign land.
The Fly: One of the Halloween movies streaming on Netflix that got me excited is The Fly. Again, this is the original (1958) with Vincent Price. The remake from 1986 with Jeff Goldblum was retty good, but he isn’t Vincent Price, you know what I mean? The premise of the movie is that a scientist (Vincent Price) has a horrific accident when he tries to use his newly invented teleportation device.
Did I list one of your favorite Halloween movies streaming on Netflix this month? If not, there are so many more you can see. Honestly, I could have listed a ton more, but it would take me forever! I will admit, there ere a few movies I would love to have seen that are not currently available on Netflix. One of the big ones was the original Halloween. The powers that be at Netflix need to get that rectified! I have added all of these movies and several more on “My List.” Netflix is super easy to stream and it is affordable for virtually every budget. You can stream Netflix through your TV, tablet, smartphone, gaming system or computer for less then $10 a month! You can watch your favorite shows while you are in the carpool lane, at the doctors office or while relaxing at home. Be sure to follow Netflix on Facebook and Twitter.
