13 Scary Movies You Can Stream On Netflix For Halloween

William Castle Productions

Halloween is coming. Time to set about planning what sexy "Frozen" character you are going to dress up as and start watching scary movies. The "horror movie" genre page on Netflix is pretty crowded, but there's enough quality stuff buried in there. No need to get your nightmares from something random like "Return Of The Killer Tomatoes." Here's a nice mix of campy, classic and just plain terrifying stuff available to stream right now.

"Rosemary's Baby"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "A frightening tale of Satanism and pregnancy that is even more disturbing than it sounds thanks to convincing and committed performances by Mia Farrow and Ruth Gordon."

"The Cabin In The Woods"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "'The Cabin in the Woods' is an astonishing meta-feat, capable of being funny, strange, and scary -- frequently all at the same time."

"Antichrist"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "Gruesome, explicit and highly controversial; Lars Von Trier's arthouse-horror, though beautifully shot, is no easy ride."

"The Blair Witch Project"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "Full of creepy campfire scares, mock-doc 'The Blair Witch' Project keeps audiences in the dark about its titular villain -- thus proving that imagination can be as scary as anything onscreen."

"The Fly"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "Deliciously funny to some and eerily prescient to others, 'The Fly' walks a fine line between shlocky fun and unnerving nature parable."

"Silence Of The Lambs"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "Director Jonathan Demme's smart, taut thriller teeters on the edge between psychological study and all-out horror, and benefits greatly from stellar performances by Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster."

"American Psycho"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "If it falls short of the deadly satire of Bret Easton Ellis' novel, 'American Psycho' still finds its own blend of horror and humor, thanks in part to a fittingly creepy performance by Christian Bale."

"The House Of The Devil"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "Though its underlying themes are familiar, 'House of the Devil' effectively sheds the loud and gory cliches of contemporary horror to deliver a tense, slowly building throwback to the fright flicks of decades past."

"Let The Right One In"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "'Let the Right One In' reinvigorates the seemingly tired vampire genre by effectively mixing scares with intelligent storytelling."

"Cropsey"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "Riveting and bone-chillingly creepy, 'Cropsey' manages to be one of the best documentaries and one of the best horror movies of the year."

"Scream"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "A great mixed of bone chilling suspense and witty dialogues."

"Scream 2"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "It is scarier and funnier than the original."

"Carrie"
Rotten Tomatoes Critic Consensus: "'Carrie' is a horrifying look at supernatural powers, high school cruelty, and teen angst -- and it brings us one of the most memorable and disturbing prom scenes in history."
