The most significant time of the year for creepy films is coming. Halloween movies and shows are a thrilling watch all year long, but with a chillier temperature, it is the best.

This year, with the coronavirus pandemic changing the ways of how we will partake in the classic Halloween activities, we might need an alternative to give rest our mind of the current state of the world. To help you find the best Halloween movies and shows, here are our top picks for the scariest and creepiest films to watch on Netflix.

1. Hubie Halloween

Hubie Halloween is one of the newest releases of Netflix. The Halloween film is starring Adam Sandler. On October 7, 2020, Hubie Halloween premieres on the streaming network. Hubie Halloween also has comedy favourites such as Maya Rudolph, Kevin James, Kenen Thompson, and more.

2. Stranger Things

One of the most popular Netflix series is Stranger Things. Have you not yet watched it? You're probably missing a good one. This Halloween season is a perfect time to see what Stranger Things is all about, with some quarantine and social distancing rules still taking place. Those who are not yet familiar with it, Stranger things follows a circle of friends whose bonds developed and became stronger when they find themselves dealing with the Upside Down world with monsters from the said dimension that threaten their safety. The series also has laughs, heartbreak, and love.

Big fans of Stranger Things might have re-watched some of their favourite episodes. Previously, NetflixLife ranked the best episodes of it that include "Trick Or Treat, Freak," "The Gate," and "The Battle of Starcourt."

3. The Platform

Netflix's The Platform is a Halloween movie for those who have strong stomachs. However, this film will bring you to a gruesome surprise as it is as bloody and violent as it gets.

The Platform is a Spanish movie that follows a man who enters a vertical prison voluntarily to study it. The prison is built of cement cell blocks lined up one on top of the other. It also has a hole in the middle where a platform ascends once carrying food for the prisoners.

The Platform travels one Platform at a time and has no consideration for the lower levels. Prisoners on the higher levels finish it by the time it reaches the middle that leaves nothing but a broken glass for the lower tiers.

4. The Boy

The boy is a suspenseful drama that offers few jumpscares. You may not give the film a second thought after watching it.

Netflix's The Boy stars Lauren Cohan who played the role as Greta, a young nanny hired to look after a boy. Greta accepts the opportunity to escape a current difficult life. But when Greta arrives to meet the young boy, she learns that it's actually a doll.

Greta didn't mind asking questions and just accepted the job as an easy gig. As the story goes on, she is told that the couple' real son died 20 years ago. What is the real story behind the doll?

5. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina may not be the most frightening but is one of the most enjoyable to watch for Halloween with Stranger Things. The film is about a teenage witch you already group up watching the Netflix original features dark twists and turns, but that's all part of the fun. Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Part 4 is coming to Netflix later this 2020.
