Spooky season is upon us and streaming services have released their Halloween-themed programming lineup for the entire month of October. You want new horror movies, petrifying TV shows, spooktacular specials, and ravenous reality shows? They’re all here. We bet you’ll find something to scratch that Halloween itch every night of the month.

Below are links to each streaming service’s respective horror hubs, including the new titles added this month. Freeform’s “31 Nights of Halloween” is celebrating its 25th anniversary by delivering a month-long roster of pumpkin-flavored programming to delight the senses. Titles on the docket this year include Hocus Pocus, the 30th anniversary of Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas, and the Freeform premieres of Encanto, Zombies, and Zombies 2. Hulu is striking back with Huluween, a truly scary slate that features titles like Ash vs Evil Dead, Stephen King’s Rose Red, The Boogeyman, and The Mill. Disney+’s Hallowstream offers more family-friendly fare like Haunted Mansion, Marvel’s Werewolf By Night in color, and the premiere of spooky series Goosebumps.

Netflix never skimps on the Halloween goodness. This year, Mike Flanagan’s ode to Edgar Allan Poe, The Fall of the House of Usher, will be a must-watch for horror fans. The streamer’s “Halloween Favorites” collection features subcategories including “This Place is Evil,” “Zombies, Vampires and Ghouls,” “Horror Hidden Gems,” “Teen Screams,” and “High Brow Horror.” Max has season 2 of Spanish horror hit 30 Coins, the shark-themed craziness of Meg 2: The Trench, the Final Destination movies, selections from the Conjuring-verse, fun classics like Beetlejuice, Little Shop of Horrors, and so much more. Let’s not forget Peacock: season 3 of Chucky, the Halloween franchise, classic Universal Monsters movies, and more frightful goods will be available to stream.

Here are quick links to the hubs and a calendar of Halloween programming for 2023. Check back, as we will update the calendar as new titles are confirmed.
