The MFF Halloween Horror Calendar: 31 Streaming Films for 31 Days

September 27, 2016

The MFF Halloween Calendar will make it easy for you to watch a whole lot of horror films from the comfort of your home. I was going to put together 31 films that everyone should watch in October, but I figured it would be time consuming and costly for you to watch all of them. So, I searched the streaming services Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu and HBO GO to put together a list of horror films you can stream. These movies represent every facet of the horror world and if you watch them all you will see the best (I Saw the Devil, Rosemary’s Baby) and best worst (The Wicker Man, Deep Blue Sea) from around the world.

I didn’t want to burn people out with too much intense horror so I included some creature features and horror comedies to add some laughs and fun to the depravity and murder. Hopefully this list of random films opens up your horror world and introduces you to some unique films. I’ve included some alternates in the calendar just in case you don’t have all of the steaming services.


Look below the calendar to find links to the movies we’ve reviewed or covered on our podcast.

    A lot of good ones here. You should really include Shudder as well though. They have a very interesting selection.

    I should get that device where I can stream netflix and amazon prime. Those are some good choices. Spring is one I hear a lot. I do want to see that one

      I totally recommend Spring. It is a solid horror-hybrid. It actually tells a new story!
