This list is by no means exhaustive, but a good jump start if you are looking for some Haunted Halloween Horror Flicks to have playing while you scare up a good time tonight.
I will warn you that there are a few movies on this list that are remakes. I would have preferred the originals, but sadly they were not available on instant watch. (BOO!)
Most of my favorite Halloween/horror movies are classics and those that sacred the bejeebus out of me growing up and the reason I still sleep with a nightlight. I added some documentaries and shows that keep the creepy vibe going long after Halloween is gone.
p.s. I have not been compensated in any way for this post by Netflix.

The film recounts the sobering tale of how 19 innocent lives were taken in a community experiencing paranoid hysteria regarding the suspected — but unproved — presence of the occult in the small New England town.”
