Everything you need to watch on Netflix this Halloween – 2018 Edition

Here's a list of everything you need to watch on Netflix for Halloween this year! Binge all of the horror, paranormal, and peculiar shows & movies to make the most out of the darkest night of the year. Enjoy!

We’re putting the finishing touches on costumes, rounding up party supplies, and watching all things scary. Cable television sure can ruin the vibe of a great horror flick with commercials and edits. If you want commercial-free viewing and want to see all the gore, Netflix is the way to go for Halloween! That’s not to say this list only contains guts and gore. I’ve gathered a list of Netflix’s best Halloween shows and movies. We’re talking witchcraft, paranormal, and lots of horror! I highly recommend binge watching all of these as you countdown to the spookiest day of the year.

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina imagines the origin and adventures of Sabrinathe Teenage Witch as a dark coming-of-age story that traffics in horror, the occult and, of course, witchcraft.

AHS Cult Netflix Halloween

Brother and sister team Angela (Florence Pugh) and Jackson (Ben Lloyd-Hughes) are nothing more than scam artists.

It's a simple con, until Mrs. Green (Celia Imrie) summons the pair to her home — the orphanage that was once stage to a string of murders of young girls — and Angela grows less and less certain of what's actually real. The fake paranormal investigators suffer the ultimate reality check when they are confronted by the true horrors and terrifying past that lie hidden within the haunted orphanage.

  1. […] I was a huge Sabrina The Teenage Witch fan, so I most expected this to be exactly like that show. Which, didn’t excite me as much as you’d think it would. I was happy to discover that this Netflix Orignal was much different. The dark, serious, and mysterious tone is actually really interesting. This was a fun watch at Halloween time! […]
