5 Scary Movies to Stream on Netflix

Halloween might be over, but it’s never too late to grab some popcorn and cuddle up for some #spookyseason flicks. Check out this list of scary movies that'll give you nightmares for days:

1. Scream

It's hard not to start with one of the classics. This movie is one of the best known horror films, generating sequels, parodies, and remakes a plenty. Personally, I don't find it exceptionally scary, but its iconic reputation makes it a must-watch.

2. The Witch

Let me ask, “would you like to live deliciously?” If so, then The Witch is the movie for you! I may be biased because I just really like all the horror movies A24 puts out, but there's a reason I like them… they're actually good, original, and will leave you pondering the meaning for weeks after you watch them.

3. XX

This is an anthology of short horror films and while I'm not super in love with every single one of them, I do love that they're all directed by women. That being said, the joy of the series is that there's hopefully one story you'll like- whether it be a dark comedy, a retelling of a short story, or a continuation of a classic horror film.Image via Buffalo News

4. Candyman

Personally, I feel horror movies are best executed when they have a deeper meaning or leave you mulling over more than just the jump scares and gore. Candyman is a piece of film that really explores a series of intense themes through its complex symbolism and its brilliant handling of complex themes, like racism in particular.

5. Coraline 

This movie is an easy watch for those not as fond of the horror genre. It's unsettling in the sense that it's a kid's movie, but it's a brilliant one at that. The animation and storytelling makes it a movie for the ages!
