It’s the Friday night before Halloween, which means we are officially in the golden period of annual horror movie watching. Maybe you’ve got a set list of films you like to watch every year (guilty as charged, here), or maybe you’re a more adventurous watcher. Either way, there’ are plenty of horror gems you can stream right now for a little All Hallow’s Eve thrill.

Below I’ve put together a list of some of the best horror titles you can stream right now on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and Shudder. While Netflix’s horror catalogue has taken a noticeable hit since they started scaling back on streaming deals in favor of original content, they’ve still got a few classics and contemporary gems on there and I’ve picked out a few of the best below. If you’re looking for more horror on Netflix specifically, be sure to check out our running collection of the best horror movies on Netflix.

As far as Amazon and Hulu, both have a respectable combination of old and new favorites (even with a noticeable overlap) and with the Criterion Collection heading off to FilmStruck soon, now’s the perfect time to catch some of those chilling classics before they drop off. But there’s no doubt that Shudder is the mac daddy of horror streaming options. Dedicated specifically to the horror genre, Shudder boasts a near 500 titles and thanks to careful curation by the service’s team of experts, there’s a reliable quality to the library.

I grew up in the Blockbuster generation when tracking down rare or explicit films wasn’t always a walk in the park, so it’s pretty cool to see some of the titles I used to hunt down readily available at my fingertips.

Without further ado, check out the best streaming horror movies for the Halloween season below.
