Now Streaming: Halloween Movies and Shows

I love Halloween. The music, the trick or treating, decorating and carving pumpkins, driving around and seeing neighborhood decor — and of course the costumes! Another thing I love: Halloween-themed shows and movies. Luckily, with streaming services, it is super easy to find many offerings! Most apps even group Halloween media for easy searching.

Grab the remote and navigate to the Halloween section. I recently saw offerings on Hulu, Netflix, Disney+, and HBO Max. I was so excited to find my favorites and a few I hadn’t thought about in ages. Here are a few offerings with a note on where they are featured. This isn’t a comprehensive list. Some of these movies may also be available through your cable/satellite provider, Hulu Live, and YouTube TV via FreeForm’s 31 Nights of Halloween.
