10 Halloween Horror Movies Streaming Now on Netflix

Welcome to QueueItUp, a new weekly column where we'll look at the hidden gems and new releases currently available in your digital stream. We won't exclusively be looking at Netflix, and I promise you, this is going to lead to bigger and better things, not only here at the site, but also as we branch into other avenues of media.

Today, we're going to get a jumpstart on Halloween. Whether you're throwing a party and need something playing on a screen in the backyard, or you're more of a 'stay at home and sip on whiskey by yourself' kind of gal, we've paid our $7.99 in full for the month, so that we have unlimited access to tons of Trick or Treat thrillers that will keep you scared into the wee hours of November.

Some are classic, some are cult, and some you've never seen. Here are the 10 Terrifying Halloween Movies Available Now on Netflix Streaming that you need to watch this holiday season. Go ahead, treat yourself to a scare!

1The Nightmare Before Christmas

A Nightmare Before Christmas

It may lend its title to a completely different holiday, but this Tim Burton stop-motion animated classic from director Henry Selick is a perennial favorite that keeps on giving from the first week of October all the way through Christmas Eve Night. And 'This is Halloween' has become the national theme song of this gloriously gruesome celebration, which is quickly bearing down upon us. It doesn't matter how many times you've seen it before, The Nightmare Before Christmas is a fall season classic that always brings a smile to any face. Watch and relive Jack Skellington's quest to leave October 31 behind and become the king of Christmas! Shrunken heads, ghoulish gifts, and monstrous children fill the dark gothic landscape of this musical comedy extravaganza, and its sure to please everyone, from kids scared of their first trick or treat session to a blood smeared gutter punk searching for a black cat to kill in honor of Samhain. It truly is a crowd pleaser (though one that often stops the party, so be warned).

There you have it! My obsessive Netflix viewing habits have finally paid off. Now, please, please, please let me know if there is something else I need to watch! I'm a hungry stream hunter and open to all suggestions. Hopefully mine helped you out as well! Until next week, when we'll look at the classic horror movies currently available...Have a Happy Haunting Time!

        @jasonkat Yeah, I agree. That's the only downside, but it still sets the season theme perfectly. Definitely one of my favorite pastimes.

          nothing more fun than watching back-to-back horror movies on

          AMC, nomatter how lame most of them are, its always a blast.

          but i hate how sometimeds they'll put em all mixed up rather than in order like friday the 13th part1 then next..friday the 13th part3, then its part 7 then part2, its like how hard can it be to just play em in order. lol still fun to watch than netflix.

            @jasonkat its a shame that Trick r Treat isn't on netflix anymore or it would've been a good one for this list :/ I watched it and liked it a lot more than I thought I would

              @balanorange thanks for the update! I would've never known by the articles title. Guess I was just thrown by the inclusion of Evil Dead 2 and American Horror Story, which, if you're going to go the "Halloween episode" route(which there were actually 2 episodes, do your research), then you can basically include any tv shows that have a Halloween episode. But then again, your article your rules.

                trick r treat is the best halloween movie ever told/made, period. this sh*t should be listed on here, all those myers halloween films are soo old, outdated and well they are always on. , neither of them is even considered scary. if you ask me, i think the remake was the best1 yet. and by remake i only mean part1, lol

                  Go to Netflix and search "Horror" under "Watch Instantly." First 4 results are must sees (Cabin in the Woods, Tucker & Dale, Evil Dead 1 & 2). I also recommend Slither, Carrie, Re-Animator, Hellraiser 1 & 2, Rosemary's Baby, House on Haunted Hill, and Universal's monster classics. All streaming on Netflix.

                    @nick C. Do you understand that these are all Halloween related horror movies? Not just horror movies? We'll be doing classic horror movies next, and animated!

                      There are so many better horror movies on netflix. I would know, im a horror junkie(can't got to bed sometimes without watching one). I'll give you 3 right off the bat: House of the Devil, The Innkeepers, and The Bleeding House

                          man ya now I really wish MovieWeb would look at the reviews first before making this list

                          some of the choice are good some are very bad FYI

                          'Nightmare Before Christmas' 96% on Rotten Tomatoes 'The Nightmare Before Christmas is a stunningly original and visually delightful work of stop-motion animation.'

                          'Mad Monster Party' 67%

                          'Satan's Little Helper' 1 good review by Dustin Putman 'An uncompromisingly wicked, subjectively brave chiller practically crying out to be discovered. '-www.dustinputman.com

                          'Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers' 7% (the weakest of the movies)

                          'Spooky Buddies' 2 good reviews, 1 bad review

                          'Halloween Night' 1 bad review

                          'The American Scream' 100%

                          'Hell House' 94% 'A fascinating, even-handed account of Hell Houses.'

                          'Evil Dead 2: Dead by Dawn' 98% 'Evil Dead 2's increased special effects and slapstick-gore makes it as good -- if not better -- than the original.'

                          now the last choice which is a TV show is finally along with others getting critiqued:

                          'American Horror Story' Season 1 64% 'Convoluted yet effective, American Horror Story is strange, gory, and twisted enough to keep viewers hooked'

                          Season 2 80% 'American Horror Story: Asylum crosses boundaries to shock and scare with sexy subplots and some innovative takes on current social issues.'

                          hope this helps
