With the spookiest time of year arriving, now’s the time to plan your scary movie marathon. Here’s a closer look at some fan-tested favorites to get your adrenaline pumping.

What Scary Movies Should You Stream This Halloween?

1. Beetlejuice

Tim Burton is known for his zany humor and wild visual effects, and Beetlejuice delivers on both counts. This horror-comedy mashup follows the antics of the devious poltergeist Beetlejuice as he tries to trick his way back into the land of the living. It’s not too scary, making it an appropriate choice for the whole family.

2. Hocus Pocus

Hocus Pocus is another child-friendly pick that the whole crew can watch. It tells the tale of a curious youngster who accidentally brings three dead witches back to life just before Halloween. 

3. Carrie

Gear up for the movie by reading the Stephen King novel it was based on in advance. This will help you prepare yourself mentally for this cult classic’s infamous prom scene.

4. Scream

Want to make it a marathon? The Scream series is for you. The original story depicts a group of teenagers being terrorized by an anonymous killer. The slasher film is full of black comedy, most notably as a unique meta commentary on the horror movie genre itself. It also features big names from the 1990s, including Courtney Cox and Drew Barrymore.

5. Get Out

The newest movie on this list, Get Out is a fan favorite and also garnered an Oscar award. The movie follows the story of a young black man who goes to visit his white girlfriend's parents for the first time. It makes brilliant use of the classic horror genre to comment on racial attitudes in modern America.
