16 Netflix Movies to Get You Into the Spooky Season Spirit

This guest post was written by Amber Sabri of the blog, Miss Amber Sabri.

Spooky season is just around the corner, and although celebrating this time of the year is going to look a lot different, now is the perfect time to take on that Spooky Season Movie Marathon list you’ve always wanted to take on. Let’s take a look at a definitive list of the best Spooky Season movies that will get you in the spirit, but won’t give you too much of a ~spook~!


Based on the popular R.L. Stine books, this one’s a bit more kid-friendly and better for those like me who can’t handle too much of a scary movie.


For when you’re looking to get that psychological spook, watch Hush. It’ll keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time.

The Boy

This one’s the perfect scare. For all my creepy dummy movie lovers like me, this takes the cake. You know something’s going to happen, you can’t tell when it’s going to happen, and you don’t know what’s going to happen, but you know that the scare is going to get you.

Halloweentown (1, 2, & 3)

What is a Spooky Season movie marathon list without the Halloweentown movies? They're Disney classics, and honestly, need I say more?

Hocus Pocus

It’s just a bunch of Hocus Pocus if this one isn’t at the top of your list – another Spooky Season classic.

The Poltergeist

Written by Steven Speilberg, Poltergeist is an 80s classic following a suburban California family dealing with a home invasion from ghosts who abduct their young daughter. Take a trip to the supernatural side of the spooky season, and you’ll never want to hear “They’re here” again.


Another Tim Burton classic including a devious poltergeist, a newly-deceased couple, and a great musical number. It's the ideal recipe to get in the spooky spirit without too much of a fright.

The Craft

A cult classic – The Craft is a 90s film following four, teen girls who face some negative repercussions after messing around with witchcraft


What’s a better way to get spooked than a Jordan Peele movie? If you haven’t seen it already, watch Us, but only if you’re ready for 116 minutes of pure suspense.

Grab your popcorn and candy, call over your Netflix & Chill buddy and start working on that list. Spooky Season is just around the corner and you don’t want to miss out on the Halloween spirit! Which movies are you adding to your Spooky Season Movie Marathon List this year?
