Here are the best or most Halloween-y Halloween movies on Netflix Canada:
Halloween (2007) 🍅 26%
This impossibly sadistic remake of the original Halloween, courtesy of Rob Zombie, is perfect for anyone who wants to watch mental patients get raped and ripped apart. Doesn’t sound like your thing? Then stick with the original.
Apostle (2018) 🍅 76%
🍺 There’s a Drinking Game for this film: Apostle Drinking Game
Casper (1995) 🍅 44%
A Halloween classic for anyone who was a child in the 1990s. It’s packed with plenty of cheesy graphics and dialogue, so we caution you not to watch it more than once a year.

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.
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 lightning bolt no less.
And they’ve recently added Friday the 13 Part VII: The New Blood! FOR THE WIN!!
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.
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.
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 (1996) 🍅 79%
Netflix Canada has added the original Scream by the late, great Wes Craven. This witty take on the slasher genre succeeds with laughs as well as the occasional fright.
Scream 4 (2011) 🍅 59%
The Scream series is a classic when it comes to Halloween films, so enjoy! While not near as good as the original, a lot of the original cast is back to face off against the guy in the mask.
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!🍁
