What to Watch Leading up to Halloween on Netflix

This is one of my favourite times of year! My birthday just passed, the leaves are all kinds of pretty colours, we get to pull out our boots and drink pumpkin spice lattes andddddd Halloween is 12 nights away! I am excited!

I have always loved Halloween since I was a kid. The decorations, the costumes, the candy (I mean come on, who doesn’t love the candy!?) and the movies and shows to watch! I always love(d) when a TV series would do a Halloween themed episode and the channels would all play Halloween-esque movies leading up to and on Halloween! 


Here are 6 of my Fave Halloween Shows/Movies to Watch that are on Netflix! 

Dexter1 – Dexter

I mean, if you don’t already know, I LOVE Dexter…you can read all about THAT here 😉

2 – Scream

I am pretty sure that this series is supposed to be meant for teens, but I really liked it! I watched the first season last Halloween and watched season 2 recently. It is similar to the movie, but a different background story, characters etc. 

3 – The Vampire Diaries

I will admit, I’m not caught up on this series right now, I used to watch every Thursday  night and need to catch up! Only thing you need to know? Team Damon! 

sleepy_hollow_soundtrack_cover_art4 – Sleepy Hollow

Ok, first reason I love this….Johnny Depp is in it, and well, I ♥ him. Secondly, it is a story that most everyone knows about the headless horseman. If you haven’t seen it already, it is well done and has a few laughs in there too!

5 – Bates Motel

I started watching this series on TV a couple of years ago, and while it’s not gory, there is just something completely creepy about it. It’s the story of young Norman, before he goes completely psycho….

6 – The Sixth Sense

It’s an oldie (ok, as if I am calling 1999 OLD!) but still one that has moments that make me jump! The end just makes you go “OH. MY. GOD!” Am I right?!

The great thing about having Netflix now, is that I don’t have to wait to see things on TV, I can jump on and search for thrillers and horror films to watch anytime I want, not just at Halloween, but as I’m getting older, I find that Halloween is about the only time that my bladder can handle it! Ha! 😉

There is a great listing of kid friendly Halloween watching on Netflix too, my kids love Hotel Transylvania and the Dreamworks Spooky Story movies! 

What are you watching this Halloween!?
