Halloween" 2020: All the Horror Movies Coming to Streaming this October

Halloween 2020 might be a bit of a letdown, with trick or treating banned in many towns across the world, but that does not mean we all cannot lock all the doors and spend the whole of October watching horror movies in order to forget the real horrors outside.

Luckily, all of the main streaming services have some great horror films both new and old to tide you over. Netflix, for example, has the excellent social media horror Unfriended, Hulu has the unspeakably brutal Martyrs, while Amazon Prime Video is premiering Welcome to the Blumhouse, four new films from the studio that brought you the scariest movies in recent memory, from Paranormal Activity to Insidious.

This Halloween, however, it is the less well-known streaming services that offer the truly essential October viewing. Just like Christmas will forever be associated with Hallmark, Halloween is the time for Shudder, the horror-only service which is adding some Hammer Horror classics this year to its already stellar scary selection.

The Criterion Channel is also well worth a subscribe this spooky season. The arthouse and classics service has added nearly 30 classic horror movies from the 1970s, including The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Don't Look Now and The Wicker Man, plus other great scary movies like Nosferatu, Videodrome and Trog, which features Joan Crawford battling an evil caveman.

Below are all the horror movies coming to Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, HBO Max, Shudder, The Criterion Channel and Tubi this October. Happy hauntings!
