We take a look at the best choices for your horror movie streaming marathons this Halloween.
Horror movies are fun necessities for some of us year-round, but Halloween tends to see more people watching and marathoning creepy, gory, and unsettling features alone or with friends. But what to watch… and where to find it?
My preference will always fall towards physical media, but streaming options are becoming a fantastic go-to these days. Shudder is a great platform entirely focused on horror that features tons of great titles, but it can be tougher to find worthwhile films on the big three non-genre streaming services. We’re here to help out those of you looking for good to great horror titles on Amazon Prime, Hulu, and Netflix. Keep reading and find the scares that are right for you this Halloween.
