5 movies on Netflix to watch on Halloween

Having Halloween on a Monday is almost as bad as wanting Chick-fil-A on a Sunday. It’s right there, but an 8 a.m. class and other responsibilities are holding you back. And even though you partied all weekend, you’re still in the spooky spirit.

So, close your door – trick-or-treaters are not welcome (especially the drunk, dorm room-raiding kind) – grab the candy you would’ve been handing out and turn on Netflix. Here are some must-see Halloween horrors that you can stream:

1) Hush

Hush offers a new take on the horror genre, but will still leave you wanting your childhood nightlight on. Think about living in the middle of nowhere, you’re deaf and there’s a serial killer in your home, but you can’t hear him coming. How do you survive?

2) Tucker & Dale vs. Evil

Tucker & Dale vs. Evil is the perfect mix of comedy and horror. Tucker and Dale go on vacation at their mountain house at the same time a group of preppy college kids are partying nearby. When one student gets separated from the group, Tucker and Dale lend a hand, but they get mistaken for being murderous backwoods hillbillies.

3) Housebound

This is another comedy-horror flick that is very unpredictable, keeping you on your toes. A misfit gets a court ordered house arrest at her parent’s house. She soon finds out strange things are happening around the house and tries to get to the bottom of it.

4) The Babadook

The Babadook is a true horror movie. A book is found titled “Mister Babadook” and a mother reads it to her son as a bedtime story. But after reading the book a haunted creature starts torturing the family. By the end, you’ll be glad your mom stuck to Goodnight Moon when you were little.

5) Odd Thomas

This movie is based on a book series of the same name, and is an underrated, supernatural, mystery thriller that you can watch on a date or with your significant other. Odd Thomas is a fry cook psychic who sees dead people and tries to help the living and the lingering dead. He learns of a plot of epic proportions, but he may have found his match.
