What To Watch On Netflix This Halloween For The Easily Spooked


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!


*This isn’t a sponsored post. We just LOVE Netflix and can’t recommend them enough for the whole family.

    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

    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

    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

    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

    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

  12. October 31, 2017 / 9:23 pm

    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

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

    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

  15. November 1, 2017 / 10:44 am

    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

  16. November 1, 2017 / 11:17 am

    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

  17. November 1, 2017 / 12:03 pm

    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

    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

    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

    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

  24. November 3, 2017 / 6:10 pm

    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

    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!!

  27. November 10, 2017 / 11:19 am

    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
