Here are the best or most Halloween-y Halloween movies on Netflix Canada:
Casper (1995) 🍅 44%
A Halloween classic for anyone who was a child in the 1990s. It’s full of plenty of cheesy graphics and dialogue, so we caution you not to watch it more than once a year.
🍺 There’s a Drinking Game for this film: Casper Drinking Game
Coraline (2009) 🍅 90%
A subtly creepy movie, adapted from the novel by Neil Gaiman. Jump scares aren’t all it takes to make a horror film.
It Follows (2014) 🍅 97%
One of the most respected and terrifying films in the last decade. If you want to spend your Halloween night sleeping with the light on, this movie is the one for you.
Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter (1984) 🍅 25%
Easily one of the best entries into the Friday the 13th movies, this film features the incredible acting of Crispin Glover and Corey Feldman as Tommy – Jason’s mortal enemy. But that’s not all, this is also the only film (as far as we understand) to have a dog commit suicide out of fear… by jumping through a glass window. Intrigued? You should be.
Friday the 13th: A New Beginning (1985) 🍅 16%
There are films, and then there are films. Friday the 13th: A New Beginning belongs in the latter category. How this film even exists is baffling, but we’re all richer for its existence. Whether you love it already, or are curious to learn more, we encourage you to read this superfan’s review of Friday the 13th: A New Beginning.
Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives (1986) 🍅 52%
It’s a little on the duller side, compared to the two previous sequels, but it does feature the return of Jason… shocked to life by a lightening bolt no less.
What We Do in the Shadows (2015) 🍅 96%
If you haven’t seen this movie, do yourself a favour and watch it right now. We mean it. Stop reading this right now, go to Netflix, and put this on. Made by the brilliant Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, this is one of the funniest movies made in the last 20 years, and one of the best vampire films ever made.

Halloweed (2016) 🍅 (It doesn’t even have a rating)
This “film” makes the list because it’s actually Halloween themed. There is a beauty to bad films and it’s inspiring to witness filmmakers who keep on striving to make their dream a reality, despite their clear ineptitude. Even though the film is bad, we can respect their passion. And then there are films like this. Where everyone involved makes a film that’s bad on purpose. They’ve seen The Room and then think they can make something even worse. Brave effort, Halloweed, but you don’t understand what makes bad films great.
The Others (2001) 🍅 83%
A horror film that’s more focused on atmosphere and mounting dread than gore-filled murders. It’s old fashioned tone and pacing isn’t for everyone, but if you want to be creeped out by every darkened corner you walk past on your way to bed, throw this movie on.
Monster House (2006) 🍅 74%
One for the kids and the kids at heart, this is a pleasant film to watch at Halloween if you’re not looking to have the bejesus scared out of you.
The Witch (2015) 🍅 91%
Critically acclaimed and deeply disturbing, The Witch makes sure that you will never look at goats the same again. An old witch on a broomstick is a Halloween staple that this movie greatly succeeds at circumventing with a chilling allegorical tale set against the backdrop of 17th century New England.
🍺 There’s a Drinking Game for this film: The Witch Drinking Game
Hotel Transylvania (2012) 🍅 45%
If you like Adam Sandler, Kevin James, David Spade and the bunch, you’ll probably like this movie. Others need not apply, though it does have Andy Samberg. Hotel Transylvania 2 is also available on Netflix Canada.
Scream 4 (2011) 🍅 59%
You might be asking yourself, why would we go with the third sequel instead of the original? A fair question, and one that we would pose to Netflix Canada – why have the fourth one and not the others? But the Scream series is a classic when it comes to Halloween films, so enjoy!
The Halloween selection is not wonderful on Netflix Canada. Where’s the Halloween series, or Nightmare on Elm Street? The one saving grace is Friday the 13th parts 4-6. But whether you’re just looking for something fun to get into the Halloween spirit, or something to make sure you have nightmares on Halloween night, these ten films will do the trick… or treat. 🍭🍫 🍺
Cheers and Happy Halloween – Eh!🍁
