Scary Movies and Shows to Watch on Netflix in 2019

It’s officially fall now, which means it’s time to start thinking about how many pumpkin spiced flavored things you can find, the best spot to buy mums, and which Halloween costume will get the most compliments. It’s totally natural to be drawn to creepy movies and shows on Netflix, too. There’s something about this time of year that brings it out in everyone.

Leave the lights on — if you dare — and settle in for some of the scariest movies you’ll find on Netflix this season.

Netflix is stepping up their game with original content

As one of the most popular streaming services around, the folks at Netflix are well aware that customers will be turning to them for hauntingly good time. They’re streaming classic horror movies like Scream 2 along with tons of original content so you can get scared silly with new stuff you’ve never seen before.

Forget Netflix and chill… the new “Netflix & Chills” selection is guaranteed to get you in the mood for cuddling (or at least hiding under the covers). Plus, not everything is being released right away, so you’ll find new content every week from now until the end of October. It’s a great excuse to cancel your weekend plans and binge watch some scary shows instead.

There’s something for everyone on the schedule
