Horror Films You Can Stream on Halloween Night, Including Classics

Thursday, 31 Oct 2013 12:58 PM

Halloween is a big boon for the horror movie industry, as people from around the country embrace the genre in the spirit of the holiday on Thursday, and there are numerous horror movies, some of which are classics, that can be streamed on fright night.

"A Cabin in the Woods," co-written by "Buffy the Vampire Slayer's" Joss Whedon, can be streamed on Netflix. The movie reunites Whedon, who also did "The Avengers," with one of his superheroes Chris Hemsworth (Thor) to make fun of other horror movies in a way that still manages to be scary and thought-provoking.

For fans looking for classic horror films, 1976's "Carrie," is available on Amazon Instant Video. The iconic film, adapted from the first hit Stephen King novel, earned several Academy Award nominations for Sissy Spacek and Piper Laurie, a rarity for horror flicks. The remake of "Carrie," starring Chloe Grace Moretz and Julianne Moore, is now in theaters.

Another Netflix favorite which had a recent reboot is "Child's Play 2," featuring the murderous children's doll Chucky. The 1990 movie, in which the doll is consumed by the doll of serial killer Charles Lee Ray, had a sequel "Curse of Chucky" released straight to DVD earlier this month.

"I’d argue the only reason that it’s being released on VOD and DVD/Blu-Ray instead of in theaters is because it requires you to have seen five prior "Child's Play" films to truly appreciate it," wrote Forbes' Scott Mendelson about the latest "Child's Play" movie.  

"The Nightmare Before Christmas," which can be streamed via Netflix and Amazon Instant Video, has impressive stop-motion graphics. 

"Usher in Halloween while also readying yourself for every other holiday that's approaching with this Tim Burton-produced classic," wrote the Huffington Post. "It's fodder for yearly viewings, and now is the perfect time. This is Halloween, this is Halloween!"
