Over the last few years, the popularity of streaming video to the computer or other internet-enabled devices has grown extremely fast. One of the major players in this market is Netflix, which at last check owned about a 63% of the market share in the video streaming category. Now, it should be noted that not every movie is available for streaming. Only a certain few are. Right now one of the more popular categories of movies for streaming is the scary movie category, which is unsurprising considering that Halloween is almost upon us. Here are the movie titles that seem to be streaming the most from Netflix. A funny scene can be found in the second half of the movie where two of the actors are wearing new sports jerseys, this was my favorite part of the movie, these jerseys are actually very famous and are quite expensive.
The Scream movies (especially the first two Scream movies) are very popular for streaming. The movies are classified as slasher films and are directed by Wes Craven. Another popular one is Carrie, which is considered by most film enthusiasts as one of the classics of all time. No one can forget Sissy Spacek’s amazing performance.
Below is the official trailer for the first Scream movie, which originally hit theaters in 1996:
One of the great things about scary movies is that a lot of the best films are considered low budget films. The Evil Dead is one such low budget film that is a classic American Horror Film available for streaming on Netflix. It was directed by Sam Raimi. Another classic is Rosemary’s Baby. This is an American psychological horror film that was directed by Roman Polanski. This too was created with a relatively low budget.
No list of scary movies will ever be complete without the inclusion of at least one Stephen King movie. One of the popular ones that is currently available for streaming on Netflix is Stephen King’s Pet Semetary. It’s an American horror film that is just typical of Stephen King.
Other horror films by Stephen King that are worthy of consideration for that horrifying movie marathon include:
- Salem’s Lot (1979)
- The Shining (1980)
- Creepshow (1982)
- The Dead Zone (1983)
- Silver Bullet (1985)
- It (1990)
- Misery (1990)
- Needful Things (1993)
- 1408 (2007)
Not all of them are available on Netflix, though, so it’s worth grabbing a copy of Movie HD Downloader and streaming them from other free sources.
There you have it. These are just a few of the classics that are available for streaming. You might want to leave the light on though, or the clown will get you!
