9 Horror Titles to Marathon on Halloween Weekend
‘Tis the season for Netflix and Chills
Halloween weekend signals a number of possibilities. For some, the arrival of the end of October means it’s time to get dressed and hop from one virtual party to another until the early hours of the morning. For others, Halloween is a time to dress up in a meticulously planned costume referencing their favorite character or pop culture icon. For the younger kids and their parents, it usually means only one thing: trick-or-treating.
And yet, there remains another kind of Halloween celebrant: the movie marathoner. If you like to spend the day of spooks willingly getting spooked, look no further. Netflix is definitely bringing equal parts chills and thrills this Halloween season. Whether it’s a call from beyond the grave or coming from inside the house, the streaming platform has all the hair-raising treats to get you in a spooky mood.
