120 Scary Movies to Watch (Right Now) on Netflix (Happy Halloween!)

120 Scary Movies to Watch (Right Now) on Netflix (Happy Halloween!)

Oct 05, 2011

One of the questions I'm asked most frequently on twitter (besides "will you please shut up for five minutes?") is "What horror movie(s) should I watch? How about on Netflix Watch Instant (NWI)? How about a big fat list because it's October and I really love horror films all of a sudden?!?"

Truth be told, I love being asked my opinion on horror films, so in an effort to supply one simple answer the next time the question rolls around, here are all the horror films you should considering queueing in order to have a suitably scary Halloween season. And do feel free to share your own suggestions in the appropriate section below. You may have better taste than I do.
