This Halloween season, there’s no shortage of TV shows and movies to stream!

Well, it’s that time of year. The month of October is here and now’s the perfect time to consume all of the spooky and scary content you can handle. Whether you’re into the new stuff or the classics, there will be no shortage of TV shows and movies to get you in the Halloween mood.

Several networks will be hosting month-long Halloween-themed shows and movies. Freeform has their 31 Nights of Halloween, with shows and movies fit for the whole family.

AMC has their ever so popular FearFest. Perhaps a younger audience would enjoy Disney Channel’s Monstober. Some of the more fun Halloween-related content comes from the sci-fi realm, which is why SyFy’s 31 Days of Halloween might be worth checking out. Finally, if you just want some throwbacks, head to Turner Classic Movies and their October Horror series to turn back the clock.

Halloween content to stream online

Halloween movies are streaming everywhere this month, too. Check out HBO Max, Netflix, Peacock, Amazon Prime, or Paramount+ for the latest. October may just be the best time of the year to binge TV shows and movies in general. With the new TV fall schedule, the return of SNL, and highly anticipated movie releases, this October 2021 has a lot in store. But, with Halloween right around the corner, I’ll give you some of my recommendations of TV shows and movies to watch leading up to Halloween.

If for whatever reason you have decided to cut the cord, here are six Halloween movies and shows to watch this October and two to skip, all streaming.
