Hulu offers some comedic relief if you are looking to have some laughs this Halloween. They have a variety of categories in their Huluween line up, but comedy is mashed into a variety of their films.

With humor as well as rock songs, it will have tunes stuck in your head all night. If you want some comedic horror, Hulu has The Final Girls (2015)

If you are someone who loves to be scared and is into the horror genre or slasher films, then HBO Max has a lot of classic for you. They have a lot in the horror section with Stephen King’s It (1990), The Conjuring, and a remake with It (2017).

Netflix also has some movies that will put you in the Halloween mood. They have some original movies like the Fear Street Trilogy that came out this summer. It is will give you the feeling of a classic slasher movie, with an intricate story line. If you are not into any type of scary movie that is based on Halloween, summer camps, or anything too scary, then you might want to check out the Jaws series.
