20 Halloween Movies That Will Scare The Pants Off Of You

Halloween is the time for tricks; it is also the time for treats. Why don’t you treat yourself to a few Halloween movies that will scare the pants off you? 20 Halloween movies, 0 calories, and tons of fun.

I am leaving movies like The Halloween series, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th and Chucky off of this list, not that they don’t scare the pants off of me. Everyone is already aware of their epicness.

Personally, I enjoy psychological scary over gore scary, and the majority of the movies I have included in this list reflect that. The majority of the movies in this list are airing this month on Netflix.
