halloween movie marathon

watch these scary films online for free!

Halloween is the.best.holiday.ever. for several key reasons. When else can you have an insta-excuse to shop, watch cult classic movies "for costume inspiration," or buy limited-edition beauty products just because?! Oh, and here's one more to add to the list: there's enough scary movies available to watch online for free (and legally!) to last you all month long.

Netflix has an entire section devoted to Halloween; Hulu has some random yet awesome options, and HBO Go is well-stocked, too. Because we love you, we've sifted through all the flicks streaming right now and rounded up the very best here. We've even included our favorite trailers below, so now all you have to do is decide which one you're going to watch tonight. Just don't blame us if you get nightmares....
