Upon arriving, they discover that four years ago, their street was home to a patricide when a girl named Carrie Ann murdered her parents and disappeared, leaving her older brother Ryan (Max Thieriot) in the house as the sole survivor. Elissa meets and falls for Ryan, but soon finds herself unable to escape his home's violent history.

Scream 4 (2011)

I scream, you scream, we all scream while watching the Scream franchise. Slip on your Ghostface mask, because in Scream 4 (positioned in fourth place on EW's list of Scream rankings), Sidney Prescott returns to Woodsboro to promote her new book, while Ghostface returns to making ominous phone calls and committing multiple murders. Scream 4 is the first of the films to move into the 2010s with the inclusion of modern technology (because the only thing scarier than running from Ghostface is running from Ghostface while the unread notifications on your cell phone pile up).

Night of the Living Dead (1968)

Halloween isn't Halloween without gore galore, so if you're looking to stream a film centered around the undead (specifically the hungry-for-humans kind), check out Night of the Living Dead. Considered one of the most influential horror films of all time and credited with kickstarting the mainstream zombie genre, George Romero's 1968 film follows a group of people hiding in a farmhouse while trying to survive a zombie apocalypse. With some of the most arresting visuals in the horror canon, Night of the Living Dead is an A+ horror film that will give you A+ nightmares this Halloween season.

Silent House (2011)

Spooky season is all around, but the fear is all in your head in Silent House, a 2011 independent psychological horror film starring Elizabeth Olsen. Based on the 2010 Uruguayan film La Casa Muda, Silent House follows Sarah (Olsen) as she cleans out her childhood home with her father and uncle. While making progress, Sarah is visited by a young woman claiming to be an old childhood friend, but Sarah has no memory of ever meeting her. After the visit, an intruder attacks and begins hunting the family, but the longer Sarah stays in the house, the more she understands who is hunting who and why.

The Amityville Horror (1979)

Enjoy some vintage scares in The Amityville Horror, a supernatural film known for terrifying audiences since its release in 1979. The story picks up when George and Kathy Lutz (James Brolin and Margot Kidder) move their family to a house in Amityville, New York. The catch: an entire family was murdered there just a year ago, so Kathy asks a Catholic priest to come bless the space. But when the supernatural forces begin persecuting the home's new tenants, the family struggles to fight back. Will they succeed in asserting control of their new home or will the Amityville horrors never cease? Nominated for an Oscar for Best Original Score, The Amityville Horror is worth a watch (and a listen) this Halloween season.

The Abyss (1989)

Eight years before James Cameron steered Titanic into becoming the first-ever movie to hit the billion dollar mark, he went deep with another ocean film: The Abyss. A sci-fi movie written and directed by Cameron, and starring Ed Harris, Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, and Michael Biehn, the movie follows a group of divers who encounter underwater aliens while searching for a lost nuclear submarine. If you're the kind of person who fears the unknown, deep water, and aliens, The Abyss is the Halloween movie you need to stream this year.

Final Destination (2000)

The teenage years are all about embracing one's perceived immortality. That is, unless you're one of the teenagers being hunted by death in Final Destination. Released in 2000, the movie stars '90s heartthrob Devon Sawa as Alex, a kid gifted with a signature ability to see death before it strikes. After Alex, five of his classmates, and one of his teachers escape mortality's clutches, the film transforms into a countdown as the audience — assured of the characters' inevitable destruction — waits to see when and how death will claim them. The first in a series of five films, Final Destination is only the beginning of your journey to outrun your fate.

The Monster Squad (1987)

Trending more towards fun than fear, 1987's The Monster Squad is a film about a group of teenagers who worship monster movies and the behemoths that star in them. When the squad happens upon Van Helsing's diary, they realize they have a chance to prevent Dracula and his army of monsters from controlling the world and plunging it into darkness — but only if they manage to open a wormhole and cast the monsters out. A black comedy with a cult following, some of the '80s language ages poorly, but all in all, there's a reason Ryan Gosling is a lifelong fan

Little Vampire (2020)

Halloween is crawling with creatures, but none are cuter than Little Vampire, the lead character in the eponymous 2020 animated fantasy. Not to be confused with The Little Vampire, the 2000 live action film starring Jonathan Lipnicki, Little Vampire tells the story of a bored blood-sucker who has been stuck as a ten-year-old for 300 years. Desperate to meet kids his own age, Little Vampire befriends a boy named Michel, but the friendship is compromised when an old enemy reappears seeking vengeance. Originally made as a French film and dubbed for English audiences, Petit Vampire was nominated for Best Animated Film at the 46th César Awards.
