Halloween Movie Marathon: What to Watch and Where to Stream

Gearing up for a Halloween movie day

We’re just a day away from October and I am READY to get my Halloween on! I know Halloween will be quite different this year, due to the pandemic, but I’m going to make the best of it.

One of my favorite ways to gear up for spooky season is by watching scary movies. Typically we gather with some friends around Halloween and have a horror movie night, whether we’ll do this or not this year I’m not really sure, but we will definitely be spending our weekends marathoning some scary movies.

I have a lot of fond memories as a kid having sleepovers with my friends and watching scary movies. My dad thought it would be fun to introduce us to classic horror movies like Halloween and The Exorcist. I was probably too young to be watching movies like this, haha, but it definitely sparked my love for spooky stuff.

If I had to narrow down my favorite horror movies, I’d say my top 5:

  1. Trick ‘r Treat
  2. The Exorcist
  3. Halloween
  4. Rosemary’s Baby
  5. The Evil Dead

I don’t claim to be a horror expert or to have the best taste in scary movies, I like what I like. But if you’re not sure where to begin with your Halloween movie marathoning, I got you — and I’ve got where you can stream them, too.

Disclaimer: This list is not exactly kid-friendly, my apologies. A few are fine, but most I’d say would give your littles nightmares.

It still scares me just thinking about it.

Stay spooky.
