What To Watch On Netflix This Halloween For The Easily Spooked

October 29, 2017


Halloween is sneaking up on us! Ekk!! Love it or hate it, one thing is for certain, you’re in for a fright fest when it comes to what’s on TV. Most channels and movie subscription services have started ramping up the spook factor, and striding out leading the zombie march is Netflix in all it gory glory. Now, the truth is, I’m scared witless when it comes to Halloween horror viewings. I’ll be the one hiding behind my hands and making all the excuses mid-movie to go make a cup of tea (for everyone!). But, having said that, I do love to get into the Halloween spirit. So, here’s what to watch on Netflix this Halloween for the Easily Spooked.





What Little Button Is Watching On Netflix This Halloween

Little Button loves getting into the childish spirit of Halloween but anything (actually) frightening won’t get on this list. There’s no way I want to her waking up in the night worrying about spooks and monsters under the bed. This list is more or less suitable for over 5 year olds, but at your own caution, depending on how sensitive your little one is to scary things.


Super Monsters (Netflix original) – series

Casper’s Scare School – series

Hotel Transylvana – movie

Hotel Transylvana 2 – movie

Monsters vs Aliens – movie



For Those That Like Their Magic Without The Spook

If you like your Halloween laced with sprinkles and a bit of romance then this list should be for you. You can definitely enjoy these on a late evening with a cup of hot choccy.


Good Witch – series

Merlin – series

After Earth – movie (special effects are awesome)

Vampire Academy – movie

Beastly – movie (the one that made me go awww!)




For Those That Like A Little Fright (But Not Too Much)

Stepping it up a bit, these have a few jumpy moments, but you will still be able to hang onto that hot choccy and indulge in a bit of me time.


Witches Of East End – series (Loved this one!)

Fallen – movie

Dorian Gray – movie



Getting Braver, With Plenty Of Bite

I love ALL of these with a capital L, but they are a touch jumpy and being a total scaredy cat, I wouldn’t watch these just before bed! Lots of blood, guts and loose your hot choccy moments (there has been flying popcorn too! Opps).


Vampire Diaries – series

The Originals – series (slightly more scary than Vampire Diaries?)

Teen Wolf – series

Stranger Things (Netflix original) – series



The Spookiest Of All (For The Easily Spooked)



Salem – series (gruesome!)

I am The Pretty Thing That Lives In The House (Netflix original) – movie

The Women In Black – movie

Mama – movie

Visions – movie (Loved this!)




What To Watch On Netflix This Halloween For The Easily Spooked

So this is what we are, and have been watching. It’s a pretty tame list for anyone who loves to be scared witless. And if that’s you, you won’t be disappointed with what Netflix have laid on for you. I’ve had a peek, and there’s some truly petrifying finds. Right, back to the good witch for me then. Happy Halloween and enjoy!

    I love Jurassic Park! I passed my love onto Lola who will sit and stare at the movie every time I watch it. Her little Bulldog tail just wiggles away the whole time! #DreamTeam

  2. Love Netflix! I’ve watched some of these, even in the really scary category despite being a wuss when it comes to horror films. Haven’t tried several of these so thanks for giving me some new ones for the list. Xx #dreamteam

  3. Ohhh some great tips here – I love finding a new boxset. Sam is obsessed with Stranger Things at the moment but, dare I say it, I don’t like it! xx #dreamteam

  4. So pleased to see both Hotel Transylvania films on the list; I think they are brilliant. Wishing you a not too scary Happy Halloween #DreamTeam x

    I remember when Hubby said he was going to get Netflix and I was all ‘Oh whatever, don’t really know what is it’…. fast forward 3 months and I’m like ‘Netflix is life’!! The kids love it and we watch it everyday here and there when we can. Loving Hotel Transylvania at the moment and me and the Hubs are waiting until we have a day off together (soon can’t wait) and we are going to binge watch the new Stranger things xx #DreamTeam

  7. What a great list !!! Love the categories! I really must catch u with Stranger Things , I feel like I’m the only person who hasn’t seen it! That can be my Halloween treat when the kids go to bed I think! #DreamTeam

  8. You know what we STILL haven’t got Netflix *boo* but would love to watch Stranger Things so might succumb x #DreamTeam x

  9. Some awesome ideas! I absolutely love jurassic park – very fond memories of watching it at the cinema with my mum #dreamteam

  10. Mrs Lighty says:

    I am with you in the easily spooked camp!! For our (little) little one, we’re going with Monsters Inc, Monsters University and The Nightmard before Christmas (although the later may well end up in the Little’s Christmas Eve box!). Thanks for hosting #DreamTeam as always! xxx

  11. You list of kids’ stuff is bang on. Mine are glued to Little Monsters. Must check out Dorian Grey. It’s been on my list for years.

  12. I love hotel translavania is a top film for parents and kids becuase it is not too soppy and has music in! Happy Halloween X #dreamteam

  13. I think we must be the only family left without Netflix! A great line up and I love the treats to go with the film sessions. #DreamTeam

  14. I quite like the Beastly movie. Bit soppy but liked it. And the news series of Stranger things has just come out I think 😉

  15. Always on the look out for Netflix recommendations- thankyou for compiling! Although I’m not sure I’m brave enough haha. #dreamteam

  16. Naomi says:

    I don’t have Netflix but looks like you have some good programmes to choose from on there. #DreamTeam

  17. Jaki says:

    Any excuse to watch the Salvatore Brothers!! 😉 #dreamteam

  18. Lucy At Home says:

    Oh I’m such a scaredy cat! I get spooked so easily! Haha. My girls (6 & 3) are probably brave than me! So I’m glad you rated these in scary order! #dreamteam

  19. Annette, I’m not one for scary movies, but I like the way you’ve broken them down into categories. I’ll probably be watching a comedy of some sort or an old classic romantic movie from the 30s or 40s.

  20. Fun ideas! I really love the Dorian Gray movie, and I STILL need to watch Stranger Things.


  21. Nice list Annette. Hope you have a happy spooky netflix-y halloween:)

  22. Sonia Cave says:

    These look like a good selection for the children’s week off from School, and very seasonal!!#dreamteam

  23. hayley says:

    I still don’t have Netflix!! What is wrong with me?! This is a great list and loads on there I haven’t watched. I love a good horror!!!!

  24. Chloe says:

    Hi, I really need to get Netflix great recommendations. I want to watch Teen Wolf now #dreamteam

  25. Ali says:

    I love Netflix. I do not love scary films though. I’m so easily spooked. I think growing up watching scary movies at sleepovers has put me off for life! Might try some of the others though. After Earth is one of my favourite films #dreamteam

  26. Sumra Hassan says:

    Lovely post! Always looking for good recommendations on netflix. I will look into Dorian Gray and Visions. Thanks for sharing! #dreamteam

  27. I’m not a horror fan but I LOVE Stranger Things – I’d recommend it to anyone. #dreamteam

  28. Love Netflix. Not a big fan of scary movies – I’m a bit of a scary cat but love the Good witch. Hotel Transylvana is a great movie for kids.#DreamTeam

  29. My kids seem to always be watching the same things on Netflix, so I will be sharing this list with them to so we have some new things to watch. #dreamteam

  30. Great post! thumbs up for my fav, Stranger Things 🙂 I can’t watch anything more frightening as I get nightmares. Our little boy is currently loving some spooky episodes of Tom & Jerry which he watches while clutching a pumpkin, hehe. Happy Halloween! #dreamteam

  31. This is a good round up, im easily spooked but loved the series Slasher. Its all about a lady coming back to the hometown where her parents were murdered. Very scream-esque! also scream the TV series is another brilliant one! Slashers are more gore than scary and i love it! #dreamteam

  32. I subscribed to Netflix last week purely for Stranger Things 🙂 Kids are loving it too (although insist on watching Nativity?!?)

  33. These are great! I love Netflix recommendations as I’m so indecisive! Will definitely be checking out some of these xx

  34. Ky says:

    I’m so happy that Netflix finally has the last season of Vampire Diaries. I still haven’t finished it as I’m in denial about it all being over but now I have no excuse. Some great choices on here, I can’t wait to start Stranger Things 2 as well. x #dreamteam

  35. I’m not a big fan of scary movies. But I LOVE Netflix. The husband keeps talking about cancelling it but I’m not sure I could survive. I might even start rewatching Vampire Diaries now that you’ve mentioned it. #dreamteam

  36. We love Netflix too!!!!

    That’s a great selection!

  37. Ooh, I’m with you, being scared is not my idea of fun!

  38. Aleena says:

    What a brill list! My 3yo loves a good spook, but her dad is a total chicken haha! I love a real thriller, so we can never agree. #DreamTeam

  39. Great list. I love Hotel Transylvania for the younger kids. I’d add Addams Family to the list. My 8yr old just watched it and loved it, brought back loads of memories for me too x

  40. Chris and I have been discussing whether to get a Netflix subscription! It looks like there is so much on there! #dreamteam

  41. We don’t have Netflix but we definitely need to check these out. Miss Tot is fiendishly obsessed with all things spooky so the list for littles needs copying immediately to our To Watch list! Thanks for being such a brill host for #DreamTeam lovely xx

  42. Helena says:

    We don’t have Netflix nor do we posses very scary films. We’ve just kept to kid friendly CBeebies Halloween programmes. #DreamTeam

  43. We love Netflix here but I’m with you Annette in that I’m not really into the scary movie stuff. I don’t hate them or anything but I wouldn’t be running to watch them either!!! An Ex girlfriend use to love them so I use to watch them then but give me a Thriller &/or Comedy anyway!!

  44. We absolutely LOVE Hotel Transylvania 2 — we watch it all year through. We never tire of it! <3 I love the scary too, by my Mrs. and the littles cannot manage Michael Jackson's Thriller yet… time! Thanks for this great list! #dreamteam xoxo
