Halloween Spirit: 65 Titles on Netflix to Get You There

netflix halloween

Netflix has once again hooked us up with old and new faves to get into the Halloween spirit.

I personally don’t like scary movies but the rest of my family can’t get enough. I’m here to lend extra hugs and emotional support but I prefer to stick to old classics like Hocus Pocus, Casper, and of course can’t wait for season 2 of Stranger Things. Whatever your preferences are I am sure you will have a wonderful Netflix Halloween.
