When you think about Halloween, the first thing that probably comes to mind is the movies. These are some of the Halloween films that are best known, most liked, and the ones that are available to watch on Netflix.
There are over 40 good Halloween movies on available to watch on Netflix. The first recommendation is “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, an animated movie directed by Henry Selick. “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is about a skeleton man from Halloween Town who opens a portal to Christmastown and decides to stay and celebrate the holiday, but some serious consequences come about. “The Nightmare Before Christmas” is categorized as an animated movie for the whole family. Having both holidays combined into one movie makes it interesting because most Halloween movies focus on scaring.
The next movie available on Netflix is the “Saw” series. The first “Saw” came out in 2004 and was directed by James Wan. Unlike “The Nightmare Before Christmas”, “Saw” is not necessarily a family movie because it has some very gruesome scenes. Although this is not categorized as a Halloween movie, it is scary enough to fit the holiday. Gruesome scenes make you cringe. Find someone to hold your hand through this one.
